Few cars on the planet are as exclusive at the Bugatti Chiron. The multi-million-dollar price tag is part of it, but there’s also the simple fact that so few are made. The French automaker, currently owned by Volkswagen, was founded 110 years ago by Ettore Bugatti. To celebrate both the company’s anniversary and its French heritage, Bugatti revealed a limited-edition version of last year’s Chiron Sport, a more capable version of the Veyron’s successor.
The Chiron Sport simply refined an already bonkers model, cutting weight thanks to lightweight wheels, thinner glass and even more carbon fiber. The suspension and steering were re-tuned, too, though the 1,479-horsepower quad-turbocharged W16 engine was left untouched. The 110 ans Bugatti doesn’t add any more performance, though it doesn’t really need it anyway. For those discerning customers that want a Bugatti that corners, look no further than the Divo.
The 110 ans Bugatti will be limited to just 20 examples. Though Bugatti doesn’t mention it, all are likely spoken for. The car looks so French it’s liable to play “La Marseillaise” every single time you open the door. The entire exterior has been painted a deep matte blue. The brake calipers are a brighter shade, reminiscent of French racing blue. The brightest and arguably best exterior touches are the French flag’s red, white and blue tricolor bars on the mirrors, fuel door and rear wing. The latter is only visible when the movable wing is in it’s up position.
The leather interior is done up in the same shade as the exterior. Deep blue leather covers nearly every surface, though the seats and seatbelts are done in the same blue as the brake calipers. The seats themselves feature a tricolor stripe along the center, split in the headrest by a “110 ans Bugatti” logo. The steering wheel, too, gets a French flag in the top center of the rim.
