Bugatti is celebrating 110 years and scarcely has any other luxury car brand looked back on as long a tradition as Bugatti. The French hyper sports car manufacturer is celebrating this anniversary with a special edition of the Chiron Sport. The car will have a limited run of 20 cars. This new edition is not only extremely exclusive but also pays tribute to France. The new Chiron Sport "110 ans Bugatti" bears the French tricolour 'Le Bleu-Blanc-Rouge'. The flag originally symbolised the union between monarch and people in the phase of the constitutional monarchy.
The body and the front end are made from carbon fibre and the Bugatti line and the typical Bugatti radiator from aluminium. The matte Steel Blue paintwork at the rear of the car, produced in a complex process, has a sheen like hot-rolled steel. The typical Bugatti line, the dominant 'C' surrounding the passenger compartment, is also painted Steel Blue. The front end consists of exposed carbon fibre in Steel Blue Carbon, once again a matte colour suggestive of steel. The two-tone colour scheme is reminiscent of historic models: in the 1920s.
Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. said, "With the limited Chiron Sport '110 ans Bugatti', Bugatti is ushering in the 110th anniversary of its foundation. At the same time, we are underlining our origin and our French roots in Molsheim. 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."
Behind the alloy wheels painted in "Nocturne" matt black, the bright blue brake calipers are visible. The aluminium filler cap is sandblasted and hand-polished. The rear end is dominated by the diffuser and bumper in glossy steel blue carbon with the contrasting matte black exhaust system. The underside of the rear spoiler boasts the French flag over its entire width. The rear spoiler mechanism is anodised in matte black to harmonise with the matte black Ettore Bugatti logo on the centre of the rear, the matte black wheels and the matching sports exhaust system. The sky view roof consisting of two fixed glass panels above the driver's and passenger's seats, available as an option on the Chiron, is a standard feature of the special edition. These panels have a newly developed laminated structure with thin glass and four intermediate layers.
The door trims, sides and seat areas of the sports seats are covered in Alcantara.
Carbon fibre is also found on the nacelle, steering wheel, steering column and seat trims. The interior is upholstered in soft Deep Blue leather. The door trims, sides and seat areas of the sports seats are covered in Alcantara. Bright French Racing Blue elements on the contours of the seats, stowage compartments, belt trims and the leather of the window buttons provide a sporting contrast.
