A MAJOR STEP FOR BUGATTI

According to Christophe Piochon, President of Bugatti Automobiles: “Each part that makes up the Chiron is a masterpiece of engineering. Only the most conscientious and experienced specialists in the world can assemble all these components. Simply fitting the carbon fiber panels to the monocoque chassis requires a level of precision worthy of the most skilled employees. The finishing step is so intensive that this alone can require up to eight coats – each polished to a perfect mirror finish that is both deep and shiny. This level of detail can only be achieved through the passion and expertise of our teams. The ability to achieve such success consistently across over 400 vehicles is the hallmark of Bugatti. This important step in the Chiron’s history also allows us to thank all the Bugatti employees who assigned the g themselves every day to perfection, and nothing but perfection. »

This amazing exposed carbon fiber finish requires patience and incredible attention to detail, mobilizing the expertise and relentless dedication of our employees, who are among the most qualified in the industry. The direction of the fiber weft must be the same for all panels, which indicates that each sheet must be cut in a certain place and in a certain way. Adding more complexity to the operation, the weave of each carbon fiber panel must also match the neighboring panels to create a completely seamless whole throughout the body. Unlike painted carbon fiber, exposed fiber does not allow any imperfections because it is not just an unpainted carbon fiber body, but a completely custom creation specifically designed to highlight the intrinsic beauty of material.

Painted in dark green, the bodywork is elegantly blended with Super Sport magnesium wheels – light and very strong – and the engine cover is finished in a subtle color called “Nocturne”. Fierce color accents, which blend seamlessly with the carbon fiber color, are applied to several exterior details, including the iconic Bugatti horseshoe grille and wheel covers adorned with the “EB” logo.

In the interior cabin, the customer chooses “Green” and “Beluga Black” leather seats. For the rest of the interior design, the color “Beluga Black” dominates, subtly underlined by careful details, such as the top and bottom of the steering wheel in exposed carbon fiber or elements in “Black Anodized”: an elegant ending that makes you beautiful. forget the complexity of its creation. The interior of this Chiron Super Sport – equipped with the optional Sky View roof – is bathed in natural light, revealing every detail down to the smallest detail.

The beating heart of this car: the famous 8-liter W16 engine. Thanks to developments such as the enlargement of four turbochargers, the engine is capable of delivering 1,600 PS – 100 PS more than the original Chiron released in 2016. The engine’s maximum speed rises to 7,100 rpm, with maximum torque of 1,600 Nm available between 2,000 and 7,000 rpm. Thanks to the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the Chiron Super Sport can reach 300 km/h in 12.1 seconds, with a top speed of 440 km/h.

If there are only 100 copies left to make this hyper sports Bugatti, the end of production of 500 cars will not mark the end of the legendary W16 engine. Two other models will close this period that will mark a turning point in the history of the brand: the W16 Mistral3Bugatti’s ultimate roadster designed for the road, and the Bolide4which will offer a pure track experience thanks to the W16 engine.
