Bugatti have unveiled the Chiron Sport at the Geneva International Motor Show claiming it to have significantly improved handling and even greater agility.
Without increasing power, Bugatti has focused more on the dynamic handling and weight reduction on the Chiron Sport. The car still makes 1 119 kW and a glorious 1 600 N.m of torque from its 8.0-litre quad turbo W16 engine.
Thanks to its dynamic handling package which includes: stiffer suspension, new control strategy for the shock absorbers, modified steering, an optimised rear-axle differential and weight reduction of 18 kgs. The end results Bugatti say is,” the Chiron Sport has become even more responsive and corners even faster. On the handling course of the Nardò test circuit, Bugatti developers recorded a lap time which is five seconds faster than the base Chiron model. Due to its design the Nardò circuit is especially well-suited as a reference track for the Chiron, as the super sports car can reach its full handling potential even at cornering speeds in excess of 200 km/h.”
To make it more distinguishable from a normal Chiron, the Chiron Sport can be ordered with the classic duo-tone colour scheme with a limited amount of colours which is red, “French Racing Blue”, the silver tone “Gris Rafale” and a dark grey “Gun Powder”. New wheels designs will set the car apart as well as what Bugatti would love to brag about, the first car with a carbon fibre windscreen wiper.
The Chiron Sports interior has a dominant black contrast. The use of expensive high quality is expected from such a brand, leather and Alcantara throughout the cabin coupled with anodized aluminium switchgear.
If you’re thinking of buying the Chiron Sport you have to dig deep, US$3.672 million deep.
