Bugatti Chiron vs. Veyron SS Drag Race Is Over Quickly

Ever wondered what you could do with a Bugatti Chiron? Sure, there are a lot of purposes for a 1,500 horsepower car, but we're here to focus on one that involves a bit of a battle. That's because a Chiron recently got together with a Veyron, so the fighting was inevitable.

Keep in mind that's we're talking about a Super Sport incarnation of the Veyron, which means the muscle gap between this and the newer model is reduced to 300 horsepower.

The Chiron and the Veyron SS got together on the Yas Marina Circuit (you know, the one that holds the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix), with both machines apparently belonging to the same collector.

The aficionado decided to rent out the track and allow his hypercars to stretch their legs. And, in case you're wondering about the man's garage, you can check out some action in the Instagram posts at the bottom of the page.

As it turns out, the car lover is called Sam Li, being one of the seven children of billionare Sammy Tak Lee. His possesions include the world's most expensive car, the $13 million Rolls-Royce Sweptail, as well as the Team Veloqx racing crew.

Speaking of a drag race between the two Molsheim animals, the adventure we have here barely qualifies as one. Nevertheless, we'll remind you that we've delivered just such a stunt back in June, when the two W16 wielders got together on an airfield.

Meanwhile, we've been keeping an eye out for drag racing action involving the Bugatti Chiron and our efforts have paid out.

That's because the owner of such a quad-turbo monster decided to duke it out with multiple go-fast machines. So, for instance, here's the 8-liter velocity behemoth battling an Audi S4 sleeper that had been dialed all the way to 1,300 horsepower (the fight also took place on an airfield).

Speaking of which, we can't wait to bring you real-world adventures of the even hotter Chiron Sport and Divo. Sure, these two specials may still pack 1500 ponies, but their scale footprint, aero and chassis tweaks can't be denied.
