Pure driving and pure adrenaline: BUGATTI is proud to introduce the CHIRON PUR SPORT1– a substantial and bold evolution of the CHIRON2 concept “Form follows performance”, making it the most agile and uncompromising CHIRON ever. Significant technological improvements on the chassis, gearbox and engine push the physical boundaries and the limits of driving dynamics once again further. More radical, more aggressive and more dramatic, the CHIRON PUR SPORT is BUGATTI’s pinnacle of driving dynamics, enabling straightforward handling on winding roads and providing an impelling thrill behind the wheel. A “Pur Sang d’Automobiles” through and through!
In the CHIRON PUR SPORT, the iconic BUGATTI W16 engine received an elaborate enhancement, resulting remarkable improvement in elasticity and acceleration. With the rev band increased from 6.700 to 6.900 rpm and a quicker throttle response, the CHIRON PUR SPORT pushes the limits of dynamic driving even further.
Shorter means quicker: to provide even more spectacular acceleration and elasticity, 80% of the gearbox was redesigned and optimized for a short gear ratio. All 7 gears were shortened by 15%. Ensuring the optimal power band the engine at every speed. As a result, the CHIRON PUR SPORT accelerates in 6th gear from 60 to 120 km/h almost two seconds faster than the already lightning-fast CHIRON. The full performance is now reached at 350 km/h.
Chassis & suspension
The suspension of the chassis was prudently improved for better lateral acceleration and a more engaging and compelling driving experience. With 65% stiffer springs at the front and 33% at the rear, new dampers with a firmer setting, new bushes and additional carbon stabilizers in the front and back the CHIRON PUR SPORT provides quicker and more direct steering reactions, profound precision, better grip in corners – even at astonishingly high speeds.
Wheels & tires
Each of the CHIRON PUR SPORT magnesium wheels are 4kg lighter and optionally equipped with innovative carbon aero wings to improve cooling and airflow. Cutting the weight by a total of 16 kilograms results in a lower kerb weight and also reduces the unsprung masses of the already ultra-light BUGATTI wheels. New Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R tires take the already massive mechanical grip of the CHIRON PUR SPORT into new dimensions.
To let the driver experience his personal impact more intensively, the driving assistance – such as the ESP – were also revised. In the additional driving mode “Sport+” the traction control comes into effect much later, enabling the driver to adjust his personal driving style from razor-sharp ideal lines to slightly drifting in fast corners.
looking back to look forward
Ever since the beginning of BUGATTI's 111-year long history, innovations have been our driving force to remain incomparable. All our models are based on both, revolutionary technology and distinctive artistry. Thus, exceptional design, outstanding performance and the latest technology characterised every BUGATTI built. This passion for pushing the limits further and further to create yet another “ultimate driving machine”, lives to this day. The ultimate proof: the CHIRON PUR SPORT.
