How does a Bugatti Chiron face the Dassault Rafale?

Have you ever seen a Bugatti Chiron against a Rafale? We had already seen a Veyron perform the same exercise in 2007, but not yet a Chiron!

Bugatti just revealed these images and a film featuring a limited edition of the Chiron Sport titled ” The Legends of Heaven“. As a bonus, we can see the supercar racing with … unRafale !

We don’t know where they got the idea for this race, but let’s be honest, there is nothing cooler than seeing the hypercar race against a Navy fighter jet!

A small difference in power

Let it be said from the outset, there are no possible comparisons between the two machines.

On the one hand, we find the Chiron with its engine 8.0-liter W16, which develops 1,500 hp and 1,600 Nm of torque. Rather a beautiful baby then, but it is nothing compared to its competitor of the day, the Dassault Rafale of the French Navy… The fighter plane develops with its two turbojets nearly 58,550 newtons of thrust, which equals approximately 5,727 hp!

With its 16 cylinders the Chiron can still reach the 490 km/h at top speed … The jet can reach Mach 1.8, that is to say approximately 1 912 km/h

A race that starts strong for the Chiron

On the runway, lined up on the tarmac, the two machines are getting ready …

Shortly after departure, the Bugatti Chiron Sport is directly in the lead. Foot to the floor, the hypersportive pilot accelerates and passes the 0 to 100 km / h in 2.4 seconds, to reach 200 km / h in 6.1 seconds. The change to 300 km / h takes 13.1 seconds, 400 km / h is reached in 32.6 seconds.

As for the Rafale, it’s a different story. After 150 meters, he reached 165 km / h but stayed behind. 210 km / h is reached at 250 meters and it takes off at around 260 km / h after 450 meters, leaving the Chiron on the tarmac…

“I moved away from the Rafale for the first few hundred meters,” explains Pierre-Henri Raphanel, Bugatti pilot, “but after a few hundred more meters, he was about 20 meters above and next to me in the tunes. An incredible and fantastic spectacle ”.

Here is the race on video :
