Bugatti’s 110th Anniversary Chiron Sport Is a Tribute to France

Share

Bugatti have released a special edition version of the Bugatti Chiron named the Bugatti Chiron Sport "110 ans Bugatti". A series of 20 vehicles will devote not only to the celebration of the anniversary, but also the home of the brand - France.

It's called the "110 Ans Bugatti", and it's quite the colorful package. There is good probability that we might see Bugatti Chiron Sport "110 Ans" Edition at this year's Geneva Motor Show.

What makes it so special?

Behind the alloy wheels painted in "Nocturne" matt black, the bright blue brake calipers are visible.

In fact, the underside of the rear spoiler proudly displays the French flag, signaling a patriotic salute every time it activates to provide extra aero for the driver. At the front is an exposed carbon fibre apron with Steel Blue Carbon, and there are discreet French flag colours on the side mirrors and the under-side of the hydraulic rear wing.

More carbon-fibre is used for the nacelle, steering wheel, steering column and seat trims, while the door trims, sides and seats areas are covered in Alcantara. This particular example also comes with the Sky View roof, as well as matte black detailing applied on the exhaust system and rear spoiler mechanism. That ought to be plenty to be getting on with though; we'll take two for the run down to Le Mans. The interior also gets Deep Blue leather upholstery and French Racing Blue. When Ettore Bugatti designed his first model in 1909, the Type 10, he deliberately broke new ground in terms of design. It was "light, small and nimble with an adequate power output". Since 2018, this has also included the Bugatti Divo, a hyper vehicle with modified aerodynamics designed for significantly higher lateral acceleration.

Mechanically, the 110 ans Bugatti is identical to the regular Chiron Sport, meaning it uses a quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine with 1,479bhp. As expected, the headrests have "110 Ans" signage. The inserts on the cylinder banks are made from aluminium with a clear anodized finish. It'll crack 0-60mph in less than 2.4 seconds and tops out at 261mph. Keep your foot on the pedal and you'll hit 400 km/h in 32.6 seconds before maxing out at 420 km/h.

Form follows Performance. This applies especially to the new edition.
