Bugatti Chiron by Hermes Looking Pretty Craie

Don't call this Bug beige

  • One-off made to celebrate old relationships between Bugatti and Hermes

  • All off-white with matching interior


As we all know, the ultra-exclusive, expensive, and stratified Bugatti Chiron simply doesn’t exude enough luxury for its average buyer. To fix that shortcoming, French luxury brand Hermès has applied its touches to a US-bound car to make sure that the Chiron is suitably luxurious and not just another 300 mph supercar.

Wait, we didn’t think it wasn’t luxurious enough? Well, clearly we’re not the intended market for the car. US real estate investor and car collector Manny Khoshbin is, and as such he has revived a long-dormant relationship that started with Ettore Bugatti and Émile-Maurice Hermès themselves back in the days of the Type 57.

This car, the Chiron habillé par Hermès, starts with exterior paint in Craie, the leather shade that is the signature of handbags and luggage from Hermès. While most Chirons are two-tone, this one is adorned entirely in the off-what colour. Beyond the paint, the rear bumper, all of the mesh grilles, trim panels, and even the wheels are Craie, while the Bugatti grille wears an H monogram and the underside of the wing wears the Hermès Courbettes motif. Except, of course, the horses are rearing because the owner (who also has a one-off Grand Sport Vitesse Rembrandt and two Veyrons) wanted to make sure you were aware of the W16’s 1,500 hp.

Inside, the Hermès Chiron is almost entirely crafted by the luxury goods maker, once again in Craie for the seats, console, roof, and most of the rest. The dash and other non-white parts are Ecru, while the carpets are beige.

The owner plans to take delivery of a Bugatti Baby II as well, for his son. He also says that despite the rarity of the car, he drives the special Chiron “almost every day.”

Bugatti points out that they would love to make customised specials for their buyers, and points out that before the first World War, Bugatti commissioned saddles and other tack from Hermès, with the company’s leather inside Bugatti’s racing cars in the 1920s.
