The Veyron received a number of special editions during its ten-year life cycle to sell the 450 cars planned for production. Bugatti followed a similar approach with his successor, except that this time the Chiron received significantly more hardware revisions than the old W16.
For example, the last member in the Molsheim lineup is Pur Sport. If we only judge it by its top speed, it’s actually the slowest Chiron. Ok, “slower” is probably not the most appropriate term since the car with electronic limitation can still reach 350 km / h. Bugatti prioritized track performance over absolute top speed, and this environmentally friendly example would be an eye catcher on any racetrack around the world.
The makers of the 8.0-liter quad-turbo monster have released new pictures of the Chiron Pur Sport, which replace the blue and black combination of the original car with a more striking paint job. I first noticed the light green color, but then my attention immediately turned to the 20-inch wheels.
Although they are certainly not the most beautiful bikes, the magnesium set is interesting for several reasons. Bugatti says they are four kilograms lighter per kilogram and can optionally be fitted with carbon fiber aerodynamic wings to increase airflow and improve cooling.
It is wrapped around Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R tires developed specifically for the Pur Sport to maximize track car performance with more stability. However, it remains to be seen how many Chiron Pur Sport will actually attend the racetrack.
In addition to the look-at-me paint and the rather quirky wheels, the Pur Sport also has 3D-printed exhaust covers and a gigantic rear spoiler like the one visible from the moon. Overall, the latest Chiron looks like a million dollars. It actually seems to be $ 3.24 million since the car costs 3 million euros before tax.
