The Bugatti Chiron made its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, and in subsequent years the manufacturer from Molsheim introduced new, limited-edition special versions of this unique hypercar.
In March 2020, the described Pur Sport variant was launched, with production limited to just 60 units.
The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport has been designed with track use in mind and, compared with the ‘normal’ Chiron, features improved aerodynamics and a lower kerb weight. Increased contact pressure is due, among other things, to a 1.9 m wide rear spoiler, while weight reduction is made possible by the use of lighter magnesium rims with new Michelin rubber compound tyres.
The 2019 Chiron Super Sport 300+ broke the 300mph speed barrier that seemed insurmountable. The new world record set by the supercar was 304,773 miles per hour (490,484 km/h). Shortly after this event, on the occasion of the brand’s 110th anniversary, Bugatti announced that it would produce 30 copies of this model.
The new Chiron Super Sport combines sporty and aerodynamic lines with the low-slung performance of the Chiron Super Sport 300+. Like the 300+, the model features a 25 cm longer rear bodywork, a larger rear diffuser and a tapered roofline. The tailpipes are located on the sides of the bumper, rather than in the centre of the base Chiron. There are 10 air vents on the fenders to reduce air pressure in the wheel arches and increase downforce at the front axle.
Aerodynamics are important for achieving record-breaking speeds, as they enable the car to be operated safely after exceeding 420 km/h. To achieve this, the body has been lengthened by 25 cm, reducing aerodynamic drag by 40%. In turn, air curtains at the front corners of the vehicle distribute the excess air to the sides. At the same time, air vents at the wheel arches and behind the front wheels relieve excess pressure from each wheel arch, reducing drag and creating a low lift.
The streamlined body of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ is made from black carbon fibre, complemented by an orange racing stripe running down the centre of the car. Carbon fibre is also present on the engine cover as well as on the windscreen wiper. Subtle accents, including the Bugatti ‘Macaron’ logo, are in real silver and black enamel. The ultra-light and durable magnesium alloy wheels are painted Nocturne. The whole retains its ultra-luxurious character.
