The Bugatti Veyron's reign as the world's fastest production car has come to an end by the French carmaker's latest addition to the line up: the super powerful Bugatti Chiron. The 1479 bhp monster was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

And believe it or not, it can go from 0 to 100 kmph in less than 2.5 seconds! 

At that kind of pace, you wouldn't able to catch a glimpse of it while it's setting the road on fire but here you have a few images showing the massive beauty post its launch:

It has a top speed of 261 miles per hour or if you want it in your face, it's close to a whooping 420 kmph after the speed limiter that has been fit in as "a safety measure for road travel".

The Chiron is a development out of the existing Veyron's 8 cylinder W-16 engine with a 7 speed twin clutch gearbox and likes its predecessor, it generates power from all the four wheels. 

Costing a whopping USD 2.61 million, only 500 units will be produced. Out of that, 120 have already been booked according to Top Gear
