The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport: The Driver’s Bugatti

The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport loses weight and adds extra aero for increased stability and agility.

  • This Chiron is about handling and not all-out speed.
  • It’s lost 50 kg and gained significantly in downforce.
  • This is the track-focused Bugatti Chiron.

The Bugatti Veyron and ensuing Chiron have been more about insane power and speed. And while it could set some steaming lap times thanks to its 1,000+-horsepower, AWD and massive tires, it could never be considered an agile or nimble automobile. In response to customer demand, Bugatti has created the Chiron Pur Sport.

There’s far more to this Chiron than meets the eye. Although the massive 8.0-litre W16 engine still generates 1,500-horsepower, it’s seen its maximum engine speed rise 200 rpm in order to match the revised transmission’s gear ratios, which are 15% closer together. The consequence is that top speed is now limited to 350 km/h however sprints from 60 to 120 km/h are nearly 2 seconds faster than the “regular” Chiron. This is the type of response so desired on a track or on your favourite twisty back road.

Physically, the enhancements are quite noticeable. The front splitter sits powerfully below huge air inlets and an enlarged horseshoe panel. The rear carries an enormous and purposeful high-mounted spoiler that spans 1.9 meters from end to end. Part of the weight savings is attributed to the 3D-printed titanium tailpipes. Same goes for the unique magnesium aero wheels which boast new and exclusive Bugatti Sport Cup 2 R tire in 285/30R20 up front and 355/25R21 in the rear. The chassis and suspension have been firmed up and altered. One aspect involves revised camber settings and carbon-fibre stabilizer for sharper steering responses.

Production of the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport begins in the second half of 2020 and will be limited to 60 units at 3 million euros each.
