Many lessons have been learned as the Chiron has evolved. As such, their customers have been reticent to wait for its successor. Going back to the drawing board, management and workers united to develop something aggressive and innovative. That’s why we’re elated to announce the new Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport has been unveiled in Molshiem.
Starting with a revised engine, lightweight internals have raised the redline from 6,700 to 6,900. Not only does it allow for 1,500 horsepower at ever gear shift, 1,180 lb-ft of torque is available between 2,000 and 6,000 rpm. To make use of this, the 7-speed dual-clutch has 80% new internals. Every gear ratio is 15% shorter to keep the W16 near maximum power. It blasts from 37 mph to 75 mph 2 seconds faster than a “normal Chiron”.
For icing on the cake, the aerodynamics have been optimized to eliminate the active rear spoiler. A new fixed rear spoiler does away with the complex hydraulic systems. This is just one of the ways over 110 lbs was shaved from the curb weight. Spring ratios were stiffened 66% front and 33% rear to maintain perfect weight distribution while increasing lateral grip.
Magnesium wheels with carbon fiber turbine blades keep the brakes cool by sucking air from under the car. Not only do they increase downforce, they are each 9 lbs lighter. Traction control has been recalibrated to intervene later thanks to the car’s increased abilities. That being said, this isn’t a car for everyone. Therefore, only 60 examples will be produced. This car will be brutal on the street and on the track, so the regular Chiron provides a perfect blend of comfort and performance.
