Video: The Air Conditioner Of The Bugatti Chiron Hypercar Can Cool An 80-meter Apartment
Bugatti has revealed a previously unknown feature of the Chiron hypercar. Its air conditioning unit is so powerful that it is enough to cool an 80-meter apartment.
The Chiron's air conditioning system includes a powerful compressor (compresses the refrigerant in the system) and two condensers (heat exchangers to remove heat generated by condensation). The total length of the tubes in the Chiron air conditioning system is 9.5 meters.
- The compressor is able to increase the pressure of 3 kg of refrigerant from 2 to 30 bar in just a minute. The performance of the system would cool not only the Bugatti Chiron's cabin, but also an 80 square meter apartment.
A powerful air cooling system in the cabin was required due to the layout and design features of the car. The Chiron's ultra-high speed windshield is set at a 21.5 degree angle and measures 1.31 square meters, nearly double the size of the average compact car. With such glazing, the interior heats up faster. In addition, the car's engine is installed behind the seats and, under high load, the heat generated by it can heat the interior.
The standard Bugatti Chiron is powered by an 8.0L W16 four-turbocharged engine that develops 1,500 hp. and 1600 Nm. The maximum speed of the hypercar is limited to 420 km / h. The circulation of the series is 500 copies.
