The Design of Speed

Bugatti Chiron

It should go without saying that the world's most outrageous supercar would have a full suite of active aerodynamics. But we're going to say it, and show some of it, anyway. As with the Pagani Huayra BC, the aerodynamic devices on Bugatti's remarkable Chiron include more than just the rear wing; there's a front mounted diffuser flap that both lowers drag and improves brake cooling, and the car's suspension adjusts itself to the optimum ride height for the speed called upon.

The wing itself has 4 different settings: completely retracted, top speed mode (slightly extended), handling mode (completely extended) and air brake mode (tilted forward).

As with the rest of the body, the wing is constructed of carbon fiber.
