For so many years now, Bugatti has successfully blessed the world with some truly extraordinary hypercars that no one can forget in a jiffy. In fact, one could argue nowadays that the French automaker is indeed one of the pioneers that brought out the “Hypercar” segment which is just above the ordinary supercars by featuring an entirely different level of performance and technology.
Time to compare the Bugatti Hypercars: Chiron Vs Veyron Vs EB110
Under the Bugatti’s hypercar radar, a vast majority are well-acquainted with the Bugatti EB110, Bugatti Veyron and Bugatti Chiron as they have been around for quite a long time.
But, even though these three models are from the same brand, they each have their own unique and mesmerizing features and below we have decided to compare them one-by-one;
1. Bugatti Chiron
Many will want to argue that the Bugatti Divo is the latest production-level hypercar made by the French automaker but if only they looked beneath the ingenious bodywork to see that its still the same Chiron we have always loved.
Even though the Bugatti Divo is the latest hypercar on the lineup, it is still just a Chiron underneath
The Bugatti Chiron is a beautiful hypercar powered by an 8.0L quad-turbocharged W16 engine that produces 1,500hp (1,103kW) and 1,180 lb-ft (1,600 Nm) of torque. This powerful engine is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission to move all of its four wheels. And when you engage the launch control, the Bugatti Chiron officially goes from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.4 secs.

Altogether, the Chiron’s top speed is specified as an electronically limited 261mph (420 km/h) but a lot of enthusiasts believe that the Hypercar can achieve 300mph if given all the necessities to run a bit more especially considering that its tires can actually withstand any stress even at such high speed.
The production of more Bugatti Chiron is still ongoing even though it's at a slow pace, about 500 units is still planned to be ultimately produced.
2. Bugatti Veyron
Only a few cars in the history of automobiles can be identified as real game-changers up till this day and the Bugatti Veyron is definitely one of such cars.
This hypercar first appeared back in the year 2005 with nearly 1,000hp (746 kW) and there was no single competition for it on the global auto market, not even remotely.
The Bugatti Veyron was actually reborn under Volkswagen’s guidance with a tremendously powerful 8.0L quad-turbocharged W16 engine paired with a 7-speed DCT and AWD powertrain that accelerates the hypercar from zero to 62mph (100 km/h) in just 2.5 secs. But even with all that, you can still drive the Veyron around town casually without any issues like a regular car.

The Bugatti Veyron has indeed being a remarkable car that held a 253mph (407 km/h) impressive speed record for many years as a production vehicle and just after that, the French automaker still notched the speed up to a whopping 267mph (429.6-km/h) with the launch of the Veyron SuperSport – even the Chiron has not yet beaten this speed till now.
Sadly no one can buy a brand-new Bugatti Veyron as of today because it’s production only lasted between the year 2005 and 2015 with just 450 units produced.
3. Bugatti EB110
Hypercar enthusiasts could ironically say that a modern revival of the old Bugatti EB110 came at the fine hands of Romano Artioli – an Italian entrepreneur and once-upon-a-time owner of the French auto company, Bugatti.
Back in the late 1980s, Romano Artioli acquired the discontinued brand and even dropped its roots in Campogalliano, Italy – where the Bugatti EB110 was actually built.

The Bugatti EB110 obviously looks different in some ways from the Bugatti Hypercars of the Volkswagen-era and with just a 611hp (450kW) maximum output in its SuperSport model, it was certainly less powerful than its predecessors.
When it comes to power, we cannot but notice a surprising similarity between the EB110’s older 3.5L wielded quad-turbocharger V12 engine and the newer gigantic W16 engines.

The EB110 engine had an old-fashion way of shifting gears with its 6-speed manual transmission. Although, just like the Veyron and Chiron, the EB110 engine supplied power to all of the four wheels of the Hypercar. And it also incorporated a distinct “active aero” feature which was then, still far ahead of the EB110’s time. This amazing powertrain in the EB110 could accelerate the Hypercar from zero to 62mph (100 km/h) in just 3.3 seconds and could run at a 221-mph top speed.
Only 128 units of the Bugatti EB110 was ever made and this makes it the rarest among the trio of exclusive Bugatti Hypercars discussed in this article.
