Following the successful world premiere of the Chiron Sport1 at the Geneva International Motor Show three weeks ago, the new Sport version of the 1,500 PS super sports car Chiron2 is now visiting the Big Apple. At the New York International Auto Show, which is being held from 30 March to 8 April 2018, Bugatti is showing the Chiron Sport in North America for the first time.
With unchanged power and performance data, the Chiron Sport offers significantly improved handling and even greater agility. For this purpose, Bugatti has developed a dynamic handling package and reduced the weight of its car by about 40 pounds. As a result, the Chiron Sport reaches higher cornering speeds and can lap the Nardò handling circuit in the south of Italy five seconds faster than the Chiron. The main differences between the appearance of the Chiron Sport and the Chiron standard version are a new wheel design and new four-pipe exhaust deflector. The basic price of the Chiron Sport for the US market is US$3.26 million including transport, customs duties, taxes and fees. In addition, there is an optional colour and trim package allowing customers to individually tailor the sporty appearance of their Chiron Sport. It is planned to deliver the first vehicles to customers at the end of the year.
With almost 30 percent, the North American market is the second strongest region for Bugatti and the Chiron, after Europe. Bugatti has 14 dealers in North America, 12 in the USA and two in Canada.
