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’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.

Bugatti Just Put The La Voiture Noire On Christmas Display In Molsheim
Christmas is just one week away and every city is already decorated with Christmas trees, fairy lights, and illuminated stars. However, due the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic festivities aren’t as spectacular as they used to be, with most Christmas markets cancelled to limit the spread of the virus.
The city of Molsheim, home to Bugatti’s headquarters, had to do the same, so the French automaker stepped in to spread holiday cheer with the unique La Voiture Noire. The one-off supercar is now on exhibit in a glass container in the city center of Molsheim, right next to the decorated Christmas tree.
Bugatti Should Put This Incredible Concept Car Into Production as Tribute To The iconic Type 35
Bugatti hasn’t built many vehicles back in its glory days, but nearly all of them benefit from iconic status. And that’s why Bugatti has created so many limited-edition Veyron and Chiron versions that pay tribute to those legends from the past.
However, Bugatti has mostly overlooked the Type 35, its most successful racing model. German company Uedelhoven Studios hasn’t and its modern take on the Type 35 is so spectacular that Bugatti should put it into production.
Here’s How the Bugatti Bolide’s Dimple Aero Device Works
Developed around Bugatti’s 8-liter quad-turbo W-16 engine, the Bolide ditches street credibility and wears track-only clothing. And not just any sort of clothing, but the latest and fanciest aero technology, with a big part being played by the dimple air scoop.
Lamborghini and Bugatti’s Future in Electrification Hangs In The Balance Between Desire and Necessity
The automotive scene is constantly evolving since the dawn of cars. However, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that at the moment, we are in the midst of a paradigm shift from internal combustion engines to electric-powered vehicles.
TopGear recently spoke to Stephan Winkelmann, the head of Lamborghini and Bugatti, who didn’t give out any details other than saying that the brands will try to keep the combustion engine for as long as possible. Well, at least there’s hope.
Bugatti Just Revealed the Real Bolide Concept Car in Video, But We’re Not Convinced
A modern Bugatti that’s lightweight? As weird as it might sound, it exists and it’s called the Bolide. However, you can’t drive it on the road and apparently, Bugatti can’t drive it either- or at least they won’t show that to us, although the French hypercar company insists the prototype is drivable.
This In-Depth Analysis of the Bugatti Bolide’s Aerodynamics Will Enlighten You
The recently unveiled Bugatti Bolide is arguably the coolest and most radical creation from the French brand. But it’s also controversial. On top of being just an experimental prototype that won’t make it into production, it also comes with a few extreme performance figures based on Bugatti’s very own simulations. Since the Bolide won’t be tested in the real world, these figures will never be more than speculative. And many people, including the YouTuber Kile.Engineers, are questioning Bugatti’s claims.
You Can Now Drag Race The Bugatti Bolide in CSR Racing 2
Bugatti unveiled the spectacular Bolide in October 2020 as its lightest, quickest, and most powerful creation to date. But the Bolide is described as an "experimental study," which means it’s a prototype or concept car that won’t go into production. We might not even see it in the metal anytime soon, but you can now drag race it in the CSR Racing 2 mobile game.
2020 Bugatti Chiron Sport “Les Légendes du Ciel”
Few people know that Ettore Bugatti sometimes found inspiration in aviation and he even designed aircraft engines back in 1915, a hobby that culminated in 1937 with a full aircraft design mean to break speed records.
The brand itself has worked with race drivers that had a love affair with flying, including the likes of Albert Divo, Robert Benoist, Meo Costantini, and even Roland Garros drove a Bugatti Type 18. The Chiron Sport “Les Légendes du Ciel” (French for legends of the sky) is here to celebrate that bond.
The Bugatti Bolide is a Lightweight, Ludicrous, 1,800+ Horsepower Track Weapon
We’ve been hearing all sorts of rumors about Bugatti recently, including that it’s working on a new supercar and that it could be sold to Rimac. News about the new hypercar was also unclear. Some claimed it will be all-electric, while others forwarded the idea that it will be just another Chiron-based thing. Well, the new supercar is here, and it’s neither of them. It’s called Bolide, and it’s actually a brand-new idea. It’s a track-only vehicle with a new carbon monocoque and a brand-new design, but how extreme is it? Let’s find out!
Bugatti Prepares The Antidote To All Other Track-Only Hypercars
Just as we’re coming to terms - yes, it does take a while - with the idea that Rimac owns Bugatti, news came of a mysterious, low-slung beast that’s making the ground shake around Circuit Paul Ricard in France. To our amazement, said beast featured a horseshoe at the tip of its fascia and then it all came together: Bugatti is really preparing something hot for us and we’ve got to see it a few days ahead of the official debut on October 28th.

Bugatti Just Teased Its New EV - This Is How We Know
Bugatti is preparing to unveil a brand-new vehicle. The French company just posted a teaser photo on its social media accounts. The picture shows four red LED bars arranged like a flattened letter X and comes with the caption "What if...?" The mysterious teaser confirms previous rumors that Bugatti will reveal a new car in October 2020. But what is it?
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.
Hope For A Second Bugatti Model Is All But Lost
Rumors of Bugatti’s plans to launch a second model alongside the Chiron have now been put to rest, company president Stephan Winkelmann revealed. The decision isn’t surprising given that Volkswagen Group executives are scheduled to meet in November to discuss the fate of Bugatti, which could be sold off to Croatian electric supercar maker Rimac.
Uh-Oh! Lamborghini, Bugatti, and Ducati Future Lies Under Doubt
Earlier this month we heard rumors that the Volkswagen Group wants to transfer the Bugatti brand to Croatian company Rimac Automibili. The transaction would turn Bugatti into an EV company, but it would also give Porsche access to Rimac’s high-performance electric drivetrain.
The same report claimed that Volkswagen is also considering selling Lamborghini and Ducati. Now, Volkswagen confirmed that at least three brands are under review and a decision about their future will be taken in a management board meeting in November. The group is currently discussing the future of Bugatti, Lamborghini, and Ducati.
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!
