New Bugatti Chiron Looks To The Sky
The latest model pays tribute to legendary French pilots.
Limited to just 20 examples, the latest incarnation of the Bugatti Chiron pays homage to the pilots who drove the historic French marque to victory – and notoriety – in the early 20th century.
Named Les Légendes du Ciel (legends of the sky), the new edition sees a unique shade of ‘Gris Serpent’ (matte grey paint), which Bugatti says is inspired by that seen on aircraft in the 1920s.
Other nods to the aviation industry include a dashing, bold white racing stripe that runs the length of the car alongside patriotic adds such as the subtle French flag motifs on the side.
Elsewhere, the interior door panels have been decorated with a hand-sketched depiction of a Nieuport 12 aeroplane racing against the Type 13 racer – the latter the first to wear the Bugatti name. Light brown leather upholstery, polished aluminium inserts further the aviation references.
Aside from the cosmetic changes, the Chiron’s performance arrives untouched. The supercar will arrive with an 8.0-litre quad-turbocharged W16 eliciting 1109kW and 1600Nm of torque for a top speed of 420km/h.
The limited-edition Bugatti Chiron is set to cost approx. $4.65m.
