New Bugatti Chiron Sport "110 ans Bugatti" Celebrates 110th Anniversary

French maker of supercars Bugatti is celebrating the 110th anniversary of its very first auto with a special version of the Chiron Sport, limited to just 20 cars.

The new Chiron Sport "110 ans Bugatti" bears one of the most famous symbols of a proud nation.

The hypercar's bodywork is themed around France's blue, white and red tricolor flag, but the prominent use of the theme is seen on the underside of the Chiron's movable rear wing.

The vehicle flies the French flag proudly - or the French flag's tricolours at least - in various places, including on the side mirrors, rear wing, steering wheel and headrests. Its successor, the Chiron, on sale for approximately three years now, has begotten the more focused Sport model and the re-bodied Divo, but there had yet to be a true special edition Chiron. There's a matt black exhaust system too. Bugatti says the cap is sandblasted before being hand polished to achieve its lovely finish, with the '"110 ans Bugatti' emblem and the Tricolore running vertically through it". The interior also gets Deep Blue leather upholstery and French Racing Blue.

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.

Truth be told, this vehicle - of which just 20 will be built - doesn't have a whole lot in common with the Type 10. Since 2018, this has also included the Bugatti Divo, a hyper auto with modified aerodynamics designed for significantly higher lateral acceleration. The inserts on the cylinder banks are made from aluminium with a clear anodized finish. 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. Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. said: "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".
