Aspiring to continue to push the automotive envelope, Bugatti’s engineers were keenly looking to the future and began working on the Veyron’s successor soon after the Veyron itself entered production. They knew that the car would need to be faster and more technologically advanced than its predecessor, but Bugatti’s engineers rose to the occasion, and the Chiron upped the ante in every regard. Named after the famed Monegasque racing driver Louis Chiron, it was first introduced to the public at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016.
Having learned numerous lessons with the Veyron through their own testing as well as customer feedback, Bugatti used that car as a starting point and managed to find an additional 300 bhp within their quad-turbocharged W-16 engine. The Chiron was electronically limited to 420 km/h, although capable of faster speeds, but was limited due to the fact that tires capable of handling higher speeds simply did not yet exist in 2016, however, development is continuing apace. Five hundred Chirons were slated for production and currently, around 400 have found homes
Unveiled at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, the Chiron Sport is Bugatti's breathtaking new interpretation of their ultimate super sports car. A firmer chassis setting combined with lightweight components provide even sharper handling and exhilarating agility - without compromising the Chiron's uniquely luxurious character. The Sport boasts firmer chassis settings, an all-new dynamic torque vectoring function and a sport-focused suspension setup and a substantial weight saving has been achieved with redesigned components and new lightweight wheels.
Specially developed for those Chiron customers who were looking for a distinctly sporting character, the Sport combines enhanced handling, astonishing agility and distinctive design features without compromising the Chiron's class-leading standard of comfort.
This astonishing 2019 Chiron Sport is finished in British Racing Green with gloss black wheels and matt black detailing, an unlikely combination on paper, but in the metal is simply jaw-droppingly beautiful. The interior is classic Chiron in Saddle Tan/Anthracite leather and Alcantara. The number '16' in Gold is positioned prominently on the black-painted grid of the radiator grille and refers to the number of cylinders in the Chiron's engine. The car is left-hand drive and we understand has covered just 980km.
