For the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, Bugatti has unveiled a slightly modified version of their record-breaking Chiron hypercar.
It's called the Bugatti Chiron Sport, and while it doesn't boast more power, it is 18kgs lighter than the Chiron, and features a stiffer suspension too, with 10% stiffer shock absorbers, and a revised steering setup - all of which translates to “significantly improved handling and even greater agility”.
Interestingly, thanks to the addition of an optimized rear-axle differential and Dynamic Torque Vectoring, Bugatti claim the Chiron Sport is 5 seconds quicker than the Chiron around the Nardo test track. As before, power comes courtesy of a quad-turbocharged W16 8.0-litre motor, which produces a ridiculous 1,100kw and 1,600nm.
A quick recap on the Chiron – and therefore this Chiron Sport’s – key numbers: it’ll do 0-100kph in less than 2.5secs, 0-200kph in less than 6.5secs, 0-300kph in under 13.6secs, and top out at 420kph.
While the car featured in the pics is finished in Italian Red, adorned with visible grey carbon fibre, it is also available in French Racing Blue, Gris Rafale, and Gun Powder as well.
It's price before import duties and taxes? ZAR 39million (US$ 3.3million). Deliveries are expected to commence towards the end of 2018.
