Special Chiron Sport Celebrates Bugatti's 110th Anniversary

Special Chiron Sport Celebrates Bugatti's 110th Anniversary

But in case it's just not as fancy and exclusive enough for your spectacularly valuable vehicle collection, it's worth having a quick gander at this: the Chiron Sport 110 ans Bugatti.

Appropriately called the Bugatti Chiron 110 Ans Bugatti, French for "110 Years of Bugatti", the hypercar is all about honoring its French heritage. The most obvious changes involve splashing the French tricolour flag on the mirror caps, the fuel filler cap and on the underside of the vast rear wing.

Bugatti didn't name a price but considering the base Chiron Sport starts at 2.65 million euros (about RM12.2 million) before taxes and options, it won't come cheap. There's a matt black exhaust system too. A 12 o'clock mark sits on the steering wheel finished in matte carbon fiber and blue leather. The entire interior is decorated in blue leather, while the trim is Alcantara. The recently added Sky View glass panel roof, optional on the standard Chiron, is also made standard, while a solid silver medallion mounted on a carbonfibre plate is fitted to the centre console.

Bugatti says the old Type 10 had "adequate power", and this very special and very French Chiron definitely has that-its 8.0-litre W16 engine with four turbochargers makes a whopping 1,479 horsepower. The founder's son Jean Bugatti created his own memorial with the Type 57 SC Atlantic, a design manifesto. Buyers have been limited to the virtually unchanged "42", which marked the car's record breaking performance, or the far more extreme Divo, which was an even greater departure from the standard vehicle than expected. The inserts on the cylinder banks are made from aluminium with a clear anodized finish. Even the magic figure of 400 km/h can be reached in only 32.6 seconds.

Form follows Performance. This applies especially to the new edition. "Molsheim in the Alsace region of France is an essential element in Bugatti's brand history and this is also where we are planning our future". The special model celebrating the 110anniversary of the brand's existence in France keeps up this tradition.
