5. Bugatti Chiron
It’s been 11 long years since Bugatti first unveiled the production Veyron, which has since become the benchmark for cars that want to push the performance game on a step or six. So there’s considerable pressure on the French brand to wow us all again with its follow up, the Chiron. We’re spoken off-the-record to people involved in the project and they say it’ll make the Veyron look slow in comparison, especially when accelerating at higher speeds. Official tech specs are thin on the ground, but expect another multi-turbo W16 engine with way north of 1000bhp – perhaps even hitting 1500bhp. The performance reign of the McLaren P1, LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder could be about to end.
