As much as we love rear-wheel drive, Bugatti's decision to make the upcoming Chiron all-wheel drive is obvious. After all, there's almost no way two tires could handle nearly 1500 horsepower. But that doesn't mean the Chiron will be completely buttoned down. If you're brave enough, the all-wheel-drive system will reportedly allow you to get the tail out.
That's the word , which had a ride-along with Bugatti head Wolfgang Dürheimer. The whole interview is fascinating, but the part that interests us most is the claim that the Chiron's all-wheel-drive system is set up to allow "easy drifts."
In a car that's expected to cost several million dollars, that's both incredible and terrifying. Obviously, because it can, someone should drift the Chiron. But if something goes wrong, that's a very expensive caryou just banged up, with its $2.6 million list price.
Still, we're glad we live in a time where one of the most powerful cars in the world has been engineered to hang its tail out.
