Bugatti Chiron Sport vs Lamborghini Aventador Roadster : two supercars that merges the experience of racing cars and luxury cars in one

The Bugatti Chiron and Lamborghini are two-sport cars but not like your usual racing cars. These cars are considered luxury cars in all senses of the word. In this article, we will compare the Italian luxury supercar Lamborghini Aventador Roadster with the French-German luxury supercar Bugatti Chiron. But first, here’s a brief history of both cars.

History of Bugatti Chiron Sport and Lamborghini Aventador Roadster

Bugatti Chiron Sport

The Bugatti Chiron is without a doubt among the most expensive and fastest luxury supercars. There are six variants of the Chiron and these are; the Chiron Sport, 110 Ans Bugatti, Les Légendes du Ciel, Chiron super sport 300+, Chiron Pur Sport and the Chiron Noire.

The Bugatti Chiron Sport was first unveiled in 2018 at the Geneva International motor show. The Chiron Sport has a similar design and mechanical capacities to the regular Bugatti Chiron. However, it has upgraded features that give it certain advantages in handling and speed. Most of the Bugatti Chiron upgraded features are focused on improving its aerodynamics and agility by using lightweight materials. This includes the unibody carbon fibre panel. The Chiron sport has no rubber fenders and bumpers. The carbon fibre body panels extend to both the front and back, thus giving it a unibody design. The wheels also are designed using lightweight materials. The car combines both physical and mechanical excellence to provide an unmatched driving experience. 

Lamborghini Aventador Roadster

The Lamborghini Aventador Roadster is a variant of the original Aventador. The company announced it in 2012, but production officially started in 2013 and lasted till 2016. The Aventador roadster designated LP700-4 has identical mechanical features, like the origin is Lamborghini Aventador. However, a few designs changed to the roadster to give it an extra layer of luxury and mechanical prowess.

Specification Comparison: Bugatti Chiron Sport and Lamborghini Aventador Roadster


Bugatti Chiron

The Bugatti Chiron is a two-seater, 2 door coupe with a mid-engine layout. The body is made of reinforced carbon fibers which are said to have a stiffness of up to 50,000 Nm per degree. For stability, the Bugatti Chiron uses an independent suspension system from Haldex. It’s designated All-Wheel Drive, which means all wheels are fully powered during motion and controlled with powered steering. The interior is in all aspects as charming and elegant as the exterior. It is designed with top-of-the-line materials, and without doubt, one thing you won’t fail to notice is the flat-bottom steering carrying the significant “B” insignia of Bugatti.

Lamborghini Aventador Roadster

The Aventador roadster is made using a carbon fibre chassis. It features a removable roof that’s also made with 2 carbon fibre panels. While the main chassis, including the air inlet, engine bonnet, and spoilers, are made with carbon fibres, every other part of the body is a mix of synthetic materials and aluminum. The wind deflector helps to improve airflow and gives the car better aerodynamics. Since the removable roof reduces the car’s structural integrity, reinforcement pillars are used in the rear to account for the reduced structural integrity. The extra pillars give the roadster more weight compared to the Coupè or first roadster. A gloss black finish on specific areas provides the roadster with a stealthy look. Inside the Aventador is equally as luxurious as the outside. While the outside melds together aluminum and carbon fibre, inside is a rich blend of luxury and cutting-edge technology. Lamborghini gives users the option to customize their Aventador by either going for leather covering or Carbon skin. A new technology which the company offers. In addition to that, it also sports the latest bell and whistles in-car safety technology.

Suspension and Brakes

Bugatti Chiron

The Bugatti Chiron uses a double-wishbone suspension system in both the front and rear wheels with disc brakes.

Lamborghini Aventador Roadster

Attached to both front and rear wheels are dual hydraulic brakes with vacuum boosters. However, the front wheels use 6-cylinder break callipers whereas the rear wheels use 4-cylinder callipers. Also, it uses a 7-speed ISR transmission system with dual dry plates clutch and a horizontal mono-tube damper with push rod suspension system.


Bugatti Chiron

The heart of the Bugatti Chiron is the massive 7993 cc quad-turbocharged W16 engine. This 16 cylinder engine can deliver up to 1479 horsepower at 6700 rpm and a maximum torque of 1600 Nm at revs between 2000 to 6000. This is the power behind the record-breaking speed of the Bugatti Chiron, which is said to be 420 km/h(261 mph), at an acceleration of 0 – 200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.5 seconds and 0 – 300 km/h (186 mph) in 13.6 seconds. Attached to the engine is a 7-speed transmission with a DSG dual-clutch.

Lamborghini Aventador Roadster

The engine is the powerhouse of the Lamborghini. Considering that Lamborghini produces engines for racing cars, you’d know what to expect. The Aventador roadster comes with a 6498 cc V12 aspirated engine with an electronically controlled valve train. It can deliver up to 690 horsepower @ 8250 rpm and has a maximum torque of 690 N.m @ 5500 rpm. The official top speed rating of the engine is 350km/h, and officially, it is said to go from 0 – 100 km/h in 3 seconds. Of course, with such power, an effective cooling and lubrication system is needed. To cool down the massive engine, both water and oil are used with a dry-sump lubrication system.

Main Differences between Bugatti Chiron and Lamborghini Aventador Roadster


The Bugatti Chiron and Lamborghini vary in the type of engine they use. None of the Lamborghini lineups comes close to producing as much power, speed, and torque as the massive 7993 cc engine of the Bugatti Chiron. The closest to this is the Lamborghini Aventador with a V12 engine with a displacement of 6498 cc. Nevertheless, even the power and torque of the Aventador is only about half of that produced by the Bugatti’s quad-turbocharged W16 engine. So although the Aventador is the primary contender with the Bugatti Chiron, it still lacks mechanical prowess.


Both sports cars can deliver a fantastic experience for someone who isn’t looking to break world speed records. But if you are, they both offer incredible accelerations, going from 0 – 100 within 2.4 seconds and 3 seconds for the Bugatti and Lamborghini respectively. While putting your mind at ease with the latest safety technology as you split the air at mind-numbing speeds. The Lamborghini and the Bugatti Chiron are exceptional supercars that deliver above 200 mph. However, if you want to go the extra mile, the Bugatti Chiron offers a better experience. The speed limit of the Chiron is electronically capped at 261 mph, that’s 43 mph more than the top speed of the Aventador.


The aerodynamics of the Bugatti Chiron and the Lamborghini is top-notch. However, both companies achieve excellent aerodynamics from different approaches. While the Lamborghini uses features like an attachable wind deflector, splitters, and diffusers to improve airflow, the Bugatti uses enhanced front and end bumpers to enhance air intake.


The Lamborghini Urus is an SUV, and so it should have more space. But comparing between the two supercars, the Aventador and the Chiron, the Chiron offers more comfort in terms of being spacious inside. The Lamborghini Aventador has a width that measures about 79 inches and 44 inches in height. This makes it more narrow than the Bugatti Chiron, which is 80 inches wide and 47 inches high. The extra width and height mean a taller person will find the Bugatti Chiron to be a bit more comfortable than the Lamborghini. Also, the Aventador is frugal on luggage space. Apart from that, they both have the latest safety gadgets to put your mind at ease with classy interior designs.


If you are not super-rich and for any reason, you need one of these cars, then the Lamborghini is a better option. The Bugatti Chiron comes at a hefty price tag of more than $3 million, depending on what variant you want. Compared to that, the Aventador is moderately priced. The average price of the Lamborghini Aventador is about 450,000 USD


22.5L/100 km is the average fuel Consumption of the Bugatti Chiron. Note, this value isn’t fixed and depends on the variant you have and the road conditions. For the Aventador, typical fuel Consumption value lies between 24.5 and 26L/100 km, depending on the variant you have and road conditions.


Both cars are top of the line. They do not have any significant fault or flaw except being so low that they can only be used under specific road conditions.


Regular maintenance applies to both cars but nothing out of the ordinary. The only problem comes when a part needs to be replaced, or major maintenance is required. Obviously, this will cost more than if the same part was to be replaced in a regular car.


The Bugatti Chiron and Lamborghini are two supercars that merges the experience of racing cars and luxury cars in one. They come with top specs, stunning designs, and colors and move at breathtaking speeds. Their only limitation being an available stretch of road where their full potential could be unleashed. If money is not a problem, then you surely have a range of options to choose from. Both cars come with customizable features that give a whole different meaning to luxury.
