In some angles, the auto reminds us of the limited-edition Bugatti Centodieci and the La Voiture Noire, but the Chiron Super Sport 300+ has an elongated tail, which is around 10-inches longer than the regular Chiron.
As expected, the prototype version will enter production.
Interestingly, Top Gear has it on good authority buyers will be able to add the roll cage and ditch the speed limiter to try and replicate the Longtail's performance.
Winkelmann also said the new record marks the end of Bugatti's attempts to build the fastest road cars in the world and that in the future the automaker's focus will lie elsewhere.
Bugatti Chiron 300 World Record Edition
Soon after the record run, Bugatti revealed that had it conducted the speed run in Nevada (at much higher altitude than Ehra-Lessien test track), the thinner air would have reduced the resistance and enabled the vehicle to go 25 kmph faster (estimated top speed of over 500 kmph)! Without a heavy and bothersome rear spoiler to deal with, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ is lighter and more aerodynamic than a conventional Chiron. The roll cage is also gone, while the ride height has been returned to normal and the wheels are different. Thankfully, the production Chiron Super Sport 300+ has the same modified W16 engine. Instead, Bugatti will place back the passenger seat, which had been removed from the track prototype.
Bugatti is commemorating its epic 300mph run with a limited production version of its record-setting prototype. Well, not quite - Bugatti said it will have a speed limiter.
While there has not been any official confirmation as yet, Instagram account Miller Motor Cars revealed an announcement was made during Bugatti's Grand Fete 110th anniversary celebration at its Molsheim factory.
Meanwhile, the world record Bugatti Chiron is still covered in bugs collected during its 490 km/h run at Ehra-Lessien last month.
