The hypercar looks very composed when tackling the corners.

The Bugatti Chiron's quadturbo W16 engine produces an astonishing 1,479 horsepower (1,103 kilowatts), but the powerplant's lack of sound is even more impressive than the huge output. The new hyper car looked dignified during a recent run at the Goodwood Festival of Speed's hillclimb because it just seemed to glide around the corners. 

Turn up your speakers and marvel at how quiet the Chiron is. When it sets off the line, you hear a rumble from the engine and a whistle from the turbos. As the Bugatti picks up speed, the sound becomes a little more thunderous, but the noise is still tranquil by hyper car standards. At times you can hear the announcer over the loudspeaker better than the $2.7-million vehicle. 

This short video also offers the perfect demonstration of the Chiron's majestic approach to performance. At about 1:07, the one-off Ferrari 458 Speciale MM appears. With 605 hp (445 kilowatts) from its naturally-aspirated 4.5-liter V8, the Prancing Horse has less than half as much grunt at the Bugatti. However, the Ferrari is easily twice as loud going up the hill. 

Bugatti will deliver the first Chirons to customers this fall, and they'll clearly be getting something special. Not only do these lucky buyers get a vehicle faster than a racer at Le Mans, but you might never hear it coming.
