Bugatti’s Chiron Pur Sport Grand Prix Edition

The second of just three unique Chiron Pur Sport Grand Prix cars created by the automaker's Sur Mesure personalisation program has been revealed by Bugatti.

When the first of these limited-edition Chiron Pur Sport cars was initially revealed in December 2021, gloss black, red, and baby blue were all mixed. This vehicle, a customer customised via Bugatti Singapore, has Grand Prix Red highlights over a primary "Blanc" white paint coat.

These crimson accents are best seen on the French hypercar's front fenders, where racing stripes contain several tiny Bugatti insignia. The hand-painted "32" writing on the doors, which honours the Bugatti Type 51 piloted by Louis Chiron and Achille Varzi and earned victory at the 1931 French Grand Prix, is likewise red. Red Bugatti lettering is also seen on the car's rear wing.

The abundance of exposed carbon fibre components on the car's bodywork adds to its uniqueness. These consist of the rear wing and the red carbon fibre engine covers.

Strangely, the automaker hasn't released any images of the inside. Still, we can see that it has a similar design to the 2021 Chiron Pur Sport Grand Prix, with black leather, black Alcantara, and red accents everywhere, even the seat belts.

The Grand Prix variant and the "regular" Chiron Pur Sport are identical mechanically. Consequently, Bugatti's 8.0-litre quad-turbocharged W16 engine, which produces 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft (1,599 Nm) of torque, is still used in it. However, the company's experts made certain adjustments that allowed them to save 50 kg (110 lbs) and added firmer suspension to the Chiron Pur Sport. The unique gear ratios that allow it to accelerate even faster might be more significant.
