The First Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport to Land Stateside Is Downright Gorgeous
Bugatti introduced the Chiron Pur Sport, a handling-focused version of the Chiron, in March 2020, but it took the French company until January 2021 to deliver the first customer car. And that’s not surprising given that all Chirons are hand-built and that Bugatti’s factory is rather small. The world’s first Chiron Pur Sport was delivered in the United States and it’s downright gorgeous thanks to its two-tone exterior finish and brightly colored interior.
Bugatti EB110 - A Great Car That Didn’t Get The Credit It Deserved
Many consider the 1990s to be a Golden Age for supercars. Many poster cars have come precisely from this era. I myself have posters and scaled models of many of them. Lamborghini Diablo, Ferrari F50, Honda NSX, McLaren F1, Jaguar XJ220, and others some of the most well-known representatives of their time. There is another one, however. The Bugatti EB110 was the French take on a 1990s supercar and, despite being relatively forgotten by some, it was an awesome car. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
The Bugatti EB110 SS Is Special In Its Own Right, But This One Has An Interesting Story
Why the Pur Sport Is the Ultimate Bugatti Chiron
Bugatti has created many iterations of the Chiron since the launch of the original one. But, if we had to pick the best one from the lot, it would be the Chiron Pur Sport. The company will produce just 60 examples of this beast. But hey, it’s not just us who think it’s the best version of the Chiron; a lot of people concur with the same thought, including Doug DeMuro..
The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport Is Better On The Road Than You’d Expect
Hypercars are one of the most fascinating categories of cars ever to exist. Over the past two decades, Bugatti has been consistently breaking speed records as well as price tag records in its class, with very few manufacturers being able to compete with the old French brand. Just like its predecessor, the Chiron has had more than a few versions made, some of which are highly-exclusive. With that being said, only one of those versions can be the ultimate.
2021 Bugatti Divo Lady Bug
When you’re the carmaker equivalent of Scrooge McDuck in terms of money, you can do just about anything; case in point being this gentleman who commissioned Bugatti to paint the Divo with ladybug-esque spots! It is way more complex than it sounds and the French automaker nearly backed out of the whole project. But, after a year and a half, they managed to successfully execute it and deliver the car to the customer.
25 Incredible Facts About The Stunning Bugatti Divo
Revealed at “The Quail” as part of Monterey Car Week, the new Bugatti Divo represents the next step into the extreme for the company that produces the fastest car on the planet - the Chiron. The new car takes a slightly different approach to life compared to the Chiron. Apart from being extremely fast and ridiculously powerful, the Divo moves a bit more to the dynamism and cornering abilities, so the top speed is its second priority. While it is based on the Chiron, the Divo feels like a new car, and this made me list a number of facts and differences between the Divo and the Chiron.
Now, I did say that the top speed feels like it’s only the second priority for the Divo. Well, that second priority is at 236 mph.
Bugatti May Soon Be The Property of Rimac - Here’s What That Would Mean
The Volkswagen Group could be on the verge of selling Bugatti to Rimac. A report from German weekly Automobilewoche quoted Porsche CEO and Volkswagen AG management board member Oliver Blume hinting that a decision on the blockbuster sale could happen by the middle of 2021.
This Time Lapse of a Homemade Bugatti Is Mind Boggling
The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is as much a car as it is a mirage. Born to be raced by gamers in the smash Playstation title Gran Turismo 6, joining many other ’Vision Gran Turismo’ creations from the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, BMW, Nissan, or Citroen, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo somehow transcended the world of gaming when Bugatti actually decided to build a running and driving example of it.
With there only being one of these ludicrous-looking,
inspired hypercars out there, crafty mechanic Jack Lee and his team had to make one from scratch and, amazingly, that’s exactly what went down.
This Rendering Has Us Convinced That an Off-Road Bugatti Chiron Needs to Happen
The Chiron has so far served as base for quite some limited-edition Bugattis. You’ve got the La Voiture Noire, the Centodieci, the Divo, and the Bolide. True to the carmaker’s heritage, these are either honoring past models or Bugatti’s motorsport ties. However, this fan-made design study takes the French brand where it never went before: off-roading.
2021 Bugatti Chiron Sport Alice
Bugatti has created a new one-off Chiron Sport for a customer who ordered the car as a gift to his wife for Valentine’s Day. The tailor-made Chiron, called “Alice,” was ordered through the H.R. Owen Bugatti dealership in England. It’s dressed in a unique two-tone bespoke finish, including one color that Bugatti admits it hasn’t used before. As far as Valentine’s Day gifts are concerned, this Bugatti Chiron Sport is pretty hard to top.
Now You Can See What The Bugatti Centodieci Looks Like Under The Pretty Body Work
Only ten Centodiecis are going to be assembled and each of them is paying a tribute to Romano Artioli and Giampaolo Benedini, the two minds behind the mind-boggling Bugatti EB110.
Even if Bugatti had the right platform for the Centodieci thanks to the Chiron’s underpinnings, developing a limited run hypercar that had to trigger sweet memories of the EB110 was no easy task.
Bugatti and the Bolide - Stepping Outside the Box
With the Bolide, Bugatti virtually took the W-16, 8-liter engine and developed an ultra-light body around it. And while modern Bugattis and the term ‘ultra-light’ do not go hand in hand, the Bolide fits the description, as it tips the scales at just 1,240 kilos (2,734 pounds).
Sure, it is so easy to take things for granted these days, and simply expect such contraptions to simply happen from a brand like Bugatti. However, the truth is that, in developing the Bolide, Bugatti had to give its absolute best.
Bugatti’s New Timepiece Collection from Jacob & Co. Is a Bank Account’s Nightmare
Bugatti is known as much for record-setting supercars as it is for establishing relationships with premium brands from other industries. Just recently, the French carmaker partnered with premium audio company Tidal Audio to create a new line of Royale home audio systems.
Not content with slapping its badge on these gargantuan speakers, Bugatti went ahead and reconnected with old-running mate Jacob & Co. to create a limited edition version of the latter’s already limited Chiron Tourbillon timepiece.
Watch The Man Behind the McLaren P1 Pay Respect To the Bugatti Bolide
When Frank Stephenson talks about car design, the prudent thing to do is to stop whatever you’re doing and listen to the man. After all, he is regarded as one of the best car designers of all time whose design portfolio includes the Ferrari F430, Maserati MC12, and just about every McLaren model that hit the market in the last decade.
Recently, Stephenson has taken on a new job as a YouTube personality, and, to everyone’s delight, his new gig involves critiquing vehicle designs from different manufacturers. Stephenson has already compiled an impressive library of videos, but his latest one just might be the most interesting of them all. In the latest episode of Supercar Designer, Frank Stephenson gives us his thoughts on the Bugatti Bolide.
These Bugatti-Branded Speakers Redefine What High-End Audio Systems Can Be
Automakers have an affinity for high-end audio systems and if you’re one of these audio product manufacturers, you’d want to score a big fish to add legitimacy to your brand. Well, there’s no bigger fish in the auto world than Bugatti, and the French hypercar maker has found its audio soulmate in Tidal Audio.
Together, the two companies are launching a new line of premium audio products, beginning with Tidal Auto’s Royale range of speakers.
What is the Least Expensive Bugatti?
Bugatti is the producer of extremely limited and powerful cars, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the brand’s cheapest model – the Bugatti Chiron – carries a seven-figure price tag of around $3,000,000. The Bugatti Divo, a more focused version of the Chiron sold out in one day and brought in $5.8 million each for the Bugatti brand. The most expensive model is the La Voiture Noire with it’s $19 million price tag – that’s about $12.5 million before taxes.
What is the Sportiest Bugatti?
All three of Bugatti’s models are as sporty as they come, but most consider the Divo to be the sportiest as it was designed with track focus in mind. Kind in mind, however, that Bugatti only built 40 examples of the Divo, all of which were sold out within 24 hours of its introduction.
What is the Most Popular Bugatti?
The most popular Bugatti today is the Chiron, which is also the entry-level Bugatti and the only one on sale today. The Divo was only produced in 40 examples and sold out immediately. The La Voiture Noire was a one-off. One could argue that the Divo was more popular because of how quickly it sold out but, at the same time, one could argue that the Veyron (no longer in production) is the most popular as it is considered by some to be the greatest supercar ever built.
What is the Most Expensive Bugatti?
With only one model currently on sale, the most expensive Bugatti is officially the Bugatti Chiron. However, the one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire is the most expensive Bugatti in history with a price tag of $12.5 million before taxes and some $19 million after taxes. Needless to say, the person that commissioned the La Voiture Noire wasn’t worried about haggling on price.
What is the Fastest Bugatti?
All Bugatti cars a fast but the fastest model to date is the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which could hit 62 mph (100 kph) in 2.4 seconds and had a top speed of 267.658 mph. This made it the fastest production car in the world for a period of time. The fastest car in Bugatti’s current lineup is the Chiron. It can hit 62 mph in 2.5 seconds and has a limited top speed of 261 mph. There are many that believe the Chiron can top the Veyron easily, but Bugatti isn’t eager to prove this and has forgone an official top speed run.
|Bugatti Veyron||Bugatti Veyron Super Sport||Bugatti Chiron||Bugatti Divo||Bugatti La Voire Noire|
|Engine||8.0-Liter W-16||8.0-Liter W-16||8.0-Liter W-16||8.0-Liter W-16||8.0-Liter W-16|
|Horsepower||987 Horsepower||1,184 Horsepower||1,479 Horsepower||1,479 Horsepower||1,479 Horsepower|
|Torque||922 LB-FT||1,106 LB-FT||1,180 LB-FT||1,180 LB-FT||1,180 LB-FT|
|0-60 mph||2.4 Seconds||2.4 Seconds||2.5 Seconds||2.5 Seconds||2.4 Seconds|
|Top Speed||253.81 MPH||267.856 MPH||261 MPH (limited)||236 MPH||260 MPH|
To date, there are only two vehicles that have ever topped the Veyron, and those are the Hennessey Venom GT at 270 mph and the Koenigsegg Agera RS at 278 mph. The SSC Tuatara is said to be capable of going beyond 300 mph, but it has yet to be proven, and Hennessey claims that the Venom F5 can hit 301 mph, but that hasn’t been proven yet either.
Are Bugatti Cars Reliable?
There is no real study of how reliable Bugatti vehicles are, and that’s not surprising because everything Bugatti builds is considered a “limited” model. Even the base-model Bugatti – the Chiron – is limited to just 500 examples. The Divo is limited to just 40, and the La Voiture Noire was sold as a one-off that we’ll probably never see again until the current owner decides it’s time to sell for a profit. For what it’s worth, every Bugatti is hand-built (even the Chiron) and repairing anything to the engine requires delivery back to Bugatti as the car needs to be split in half to access most of the mechanicals. If you’re thinking about buying one, keep in mind that even basic maintenance is cheap, with an oil change setting you back some $21,000!
