French high-performance car-maker Bugatti released a teaser video of the upcoming high-performance sports car, Chiron. The new sports car will replace the current Veyron in the portfolio and the public unveiling is planned for the 86th Geneva Motor Show in March 2016.

Unfortunately, the teaser video does not reveal any image of the car or the technical information, but promises that the Chiron 'breaks new dimension'. The video has been uploaded with the description -- 'the world's most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car'.

Earlier, the company teased the image of Chiron in a Christmas card. The teaser image gave a very sketchy idea of the upcoming car. The side angle picture of the car covered in blue cloth confirmed a silhouette identical to its predecessor, Veyron.

The car has been named after Louis Chiron, a racer who won all the major grand prix for the brand in the 1920s-30s. Bugatti claims Chiron's name is more closely connected with the history of the company than any other racer's.

The specifications have not been officially released yet. However, it will be higher than Veyron, which itself is one of the fastest cars in the world. Industry reports say Chiron will use a W16 8.0-litre engine with four turbo that develops 1,479bhp and 1,500 Nm of torque channelled to the tyres via a seven-speed DSG transmission. The model is expected to hit 100 kmph in just 2.3 seconds before topping out at 480kmph, which will set a new record.

Bugatti Chiron is currently being shown to select customers and more than 100 orders have already been received.
