BUGATTI CHIRON SPORT IN WORLD PREMIERE – ‘OVER THE TOP’

Bugatti Chiron Sport2 01

Bugatti has honed the chiron and is offering a sport version of its 1,500 ps super sports car two years after its world debut at the Geneva International Motor Show. At the same venue this year, the french luxury brand is presenting the Chiron Sport2 which offers significantly improved handling and even greater agility with no change in the power or performance data. For this purpose, Bugatti has developed a dynamic handling package and reduced the weight of its car by about 18 kilograms.

As a result, the Chiron sport reaches higher cornering speeds and can lap the Nardò handling circuit in the south of Italy five seconds faster than the Chiron. The main differences between the appearance of the chiron sport and the standard version are a new wheel design and new four-pipe exhaust deflector. The basic price of the chiron sport is €2.65 million net. A base price of US$3.26 million including transport, customs duties, taxes and fees has been set for the us market. In addition, there is an optional colour and trim package allowing customers to individually tailor the sporty appearance of their chiron sport. It is planned to deliver the first vehicles to customers at the end of the year.

Bugatti Chiron Sets World Record: 0-400-0 km/h in 42 s

Bugatti Chiron 04

World record for the Bugatti Chiron1: the 1,500 PS super car from Alsace has accelerated from a standing start to four hundred km/h and braked back to a standstill in just 42 seconds (41.96). This is the fastest time ever reached and officially measured for this driving manoeuvre for a production vehicle throughout the world. The run was supervised and officially certified by SGS-TÜV Saar, part of SGS, the world leader in inspection, testing, verification and certification. The Chiron completed the manoeuvre in a distance of only 3.112 kilometres. This underscores the supercar’s unique position in the extreme performance range.

The world record was set by Juan Pablo Montoya, winner of the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix, two-time winner of the Indy 500 and three-time winner of the 24 hours of Daytona. The 0-400-0 manoeuvre is the first step on the way to a new world speed record for production vehicles which Bugatti intends to set in 2018 and a further highlight in the success story of the Chiron, which made its world debut last year. 300 of these exceptional super sports cars, which are being produced in a limited series of 500 vehicles, have already been sold.

Bugatti Veyron Black Bess R1

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess, unveiled at 2014 Auto China, now revives the legendary Type 18 “Black Bess” also on first official video published recently. The Type 18 was one of the most important Bugattis of the pre-war era. Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess is the fifth model in the six-part “Les Légendes de Bugatti” (Bugatti Legends) Edition.

The “Black Bess” is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse*). Its 1,200 PS, 8 litre W16 engine achieves an unparalleled torque of 1,500 Nm at 3,000–5,000 rpm, and can accelerate from 0–100 km in 2.6 seconds. With a maximum speed of 408.84 km/h with the roof down, the Vitesse is the fastest production roadster ever built.

Constructed entirely of carbon fibre and, just like its historical predecessor, the Black Bess” Vitesse is painted completely black. The gold-coloured accents that make the Type 18 “Black Bess” so unmistakable are reflected in exquisite fashion on the modern Bugatti.

The interior of the “Black Bess” Legend Vitesse has been fully upholstered using the finest leather. The headliner, footwell, seats, elongated centre console and rear bulkhead are bedecked in a light “Beige” tone, with the dashboard, dash panel, door trim panel and cowl panel offering a discreet contrast in ”Havanna”. The door panels are without doubt one of the car’s most impressive details. This is one of the most daring projects in the design of the vehicle’s interior. Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess will be built in only three units.

Bugatti Veyron Black Bess

At the upcoming Auto China motor show in Beijing (from 21 to 29 April) the French luxury manufacturer will be presenting as a world premiere the modern interpretation of the Type 18, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse1 “Black Bess”. As one of the fastest road vehicles in the world at the time, the Type 18 “Black Bess” is a direct forerunner of today’s world speed record-holding Bugatti Veyron.

The body of the “Black Bess” Vitesse is constructed entirely of carbon fibre and, just like its historical predecessor, is painted completely black. The gold-coloured accents that make the Type 18 “Black Bess” so unmistakable are reflected in exquisite fashion on the modern Bugatti. For example, some of the Bugatti’s body components are coated in 24-carat gold. Sporting a similarly brilliant gold finish are the EB logo on the rear of the vehicle and the hub covers on the black rims, which also bear the initials of the company’s founder, Ettore Bugatti, in black.

The interior of the “Black Bess” Legend Vitesse has been fully upholstered using the finest leather. The headliner, footwell, seats, elongated centre console and rear bulkhead are bedecked in a light “Beige” tone, with the dashboard, dash panel, door trim panel and cowl panel offering a discreet contrast in “Havanna”. Clad in red “Crimson” leather, the steering wheel rim draws a clear reference to the historic Type 18 “Black Bess”.
