This special Bugatti Chiron Sport will go down in history.
Bugatti – it’s a name that inspires wealth, luxury, and sportiness. Truly, to stand out so much in the automotive world is a testament to Ettore Bugatti’s ingenuity, as these cars embody everything one could possibly want on four wheels. The history of Bugatti dates back to 1909 when Ettore Bugatti himself founded this unique and soon-to-be-famous company. Indeed, while Bugatti cars quickly became well-known for their superb aesthetics, many of them brought home trophies from some of the world’s most reputable racing events.
Some of the most famous Bugatti cars from that era include the Type 35 Grand Prix, the Type 41 “Royale”, the Type 57 “Atlantic” and the Type 55. However, the company’s success was relatively short-lived, as Ettore died in 1947 and had no heir that would follow in his footsteps. In the 1950s, amidst financial turmoil, Bugatti released one final model before shutting its doors for good.
In the 1990s, an Italian entrepreneur decided to revive this classic brand, and he focused on creating exclusive and luxurious sports cars. Today, Bugatti is under the umbrella of the Volkswagen Group, and since the dawn of the famed Veyron, it has been enjoying widespread popularity and renown. Still, the Veyron EB 16.4, which was named in honor of the racing driver Pierre Veyron, was manufactured for ten years from 2005 to 2015 with several variations from the base model.
After 2015, the Chiron came into the fold as its official successor and the Bugatti Chiron Sport currently represents the pinnacle of Bugatti engineering. It might be a bit of a stretch to call it a perfect car, but it’s definitely a perfect sports car, at least in our day and age.
Bugatti is turning 110 years old, and as such, a very special Chiron Sport has been released, which is part of a limited edition. Dubbed the Chiron Sport 110 Ans Bugatti, the vehicle comes with a stunningly unique paintjob consisting of Steel Blue elements at the rear and Steel Blue Carbon for the carbon fiber elements at the front. The movable rear wing at the back is adorned with the French flag, while the door mirrors and aluminum filler caps boast the same treatment.
The wheels are matte black for an extra touch of sporty elegance, and they contrast beautifully with the bright blue brake calipers underneath.
The interior has also received a few changes, namely tricolor stripes on the backrests and headrests, as well as blue leather and Alcantara seats. The glass roof is a relatively new feature that has only recently made it into the Chiron’s standard equipment list. It’s definitely a nice addition, as it allows the driver and the passenger to catch a glimpse of the sky above.
Power-wise, the Bugatti Chiron Sport limited edition is basically identical to the conventional model. This means that it still has the same roaring quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine under the hood, which churns out an output of 1,479 horsepower. The engine ensures a 0 to 62 mph sprint time of 2.5 seconds, while the top speed is limited to 261 mph.
