Limited edition of the Chiron celebrating the 110th anniversary of the brand
Bugatti is celebrating its historic 110th anniversary with an ultra-exclusive version of its Chiron Sport.
Described as a “tribute to France,” the Chiron Sport “110 ans Bugatti” is defined by a slightly updated design and colour changes for its exterior and interior. The vehicle is also limited to just 20 units.
The hypercar’s bodywork is themed around France’s blue, white and red tricolor flag. The aforementioned French flag makes an appearance on the side-mirror caps and underneath the large rear wing/airbrake. Furthermore, a subtle two-tone colour scheme drapes the special edition vehicle with “Steel Blue” matte paint at the rear and “Steel Blue Carbon” for the exposed carbon-fibre detail at the front. The Chiron Sport 110 Ans Edition also rides on Nocturne matte black alloy wheels, with the French Racing Blue-finished brake calipers visible behind them.
The French tricolour also features at several points in the interior of the “110 ans Bugatti” special edition. These include the two headrests and the back rests of the sports seats, decorated by high-quality embroidery with the French flag in a vertical position, and the 12 o’clock mark on the leather sports steering wheel, which combines matte carbon-fibre with a blue leather cover.
In terms of its mechanical make-up, the vehicle boasts the same quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine as the Chiron. Thanks to upgraded exhaust, additional carbon-fibre bodywork, and lightweight wheels, the Sport sheds roughly 20kgs over the normal Chiron. There’s also 10 percent stiffer springs, along with revisions to the steering and rear differential. The hypercar can accelerate from 0 to 100kph in less than 2.4 seconds, reaching 200kph in 6.1 seconds and 300kph in 13.1 seconds. Even the magic figure of 400kph can be reached in only 32.6 seconds. The maximum speed is far higher, at 420kph.
Expect the France-based, German-owned brand to showcase their super special edition model at next month’s Geneva Motor Show. Pricing has yet to be revealed, but it’s likely to be pricier than the US$ 3.26million (ZAR 44million) Chiron Sport.
