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.
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.
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.

2020 Bugatti Chiron Noire Special Edition
Bugatti has a new pair of special edition models under the “Chiron Noire Exclusive” name. The two models are called the Chiron Noire Sportive and the Chiron Noire Elegance. Both are inspired, partly at least, by the one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire that Bugatti unveiled earlier this year. Both Chiron Noire Exclusive Special Edition models are dressed in all black and carry a bevy of features that are exclusive to the two models. Bugatti only plans to release 20 units of the Chiron Noire Exclusive Special Edition in these two finishes. Deliveries are expected to start in the second quarter of 2020 with each unit costing $3,305,445.
2020 Bugatti Centodieci
The 2020 Bugatti Centodieci is a limited-edition version of the Chiron. Just like the 2019 La Voiture Noire, the 2020 Centodieci is a significant departure from the Chiron it is based on, sporting a notably different exterior. While the La Voiture Noire is a tribute to the Type 57 SC Atlantic from the 1930s, the Centodieci pays homage to the Bugatti EB110, a supercar built from 1991 to 1995. The 2020 Centodieci is limited to only 10 units.
The Centodieci is the fifth official variant of the Bugatti Chiron. It joins the Chiron Sport, the 110 Ans Bugatti model that celebrates the company 110th anniversary, the La Voiture Noire, and the track-prepped Divo. Since Centodieci means 110 in Italian, it also celebrates 110 years since Bugatti was established by Ettore Bugatti in Molsheim, France.
Unique Bugatti La Voiture Noire Pays Tribute to the iconic Atlantic in Geneva
Bugatti just unveiled a brand-new supercar based on the Chiron at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. It’s called La Voiture Noire, it pays tribute to the iconic Type 57 SC Atlantic of the 1930s, and just like the Divo it has a bespoke exterior. Only one was built and sold for a whopping €11 million before taxes.
The $18-Million, One-Off Hypercar That Bugatti is Bringing to Geneva Could Be a Modern-Day Take on the Iconic 57 SC Atlantic
Bugatti’s stand at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show is shaping up to be the go-to stand at the event now that the French automaker has let the cat out of the bag. A modern-day take on the iconic Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic is coming to Geneva, and if rumors are true, this could be the $18-million, one-off model that former Volkswagen Group chief Ferdinand Piëch commissioned Bugatti to build for him. No confirmation has been made on that front, but a 57 SC Atlantic-inspired Bugatti is bound for Geneva. That much has been confirmed by no less than the French automaker through a teaser image in its Facebook page with the description, “Jean Bugatti’s 57 SC Atlantic cannot be re-created, but what do you think? Can we translate its design language into the 21st century?” If it wasn’t clear before, it’s crystal clear now. All eyes will be on Bugatti at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
2019 Bugatti Chiron Sport ‘110 Ans’ Edition
Bugatti is celebrating its 110th anniversary this year, and in keeping with its reputation for celebrating anniversaries in style, it’s bringing a special edition Chiron to the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The special edition model, called the Chiron Sport “110 Ans,” is essentially a love letter for Bugatti, from Bugatti. It’s limited to just 20 units, and it’s dressed up in the finest exclusive touches you can find in the business. The special edition ode to Bugatti’s heritage will be the centerpiece of Bugatti’s exhibit in Geneva, though it may or may not be joined by a mysterious one-off hypercar that Bugatti is also rumored to have a spot for in its booth in Geneva. But that’s a different story. This is all about the Bugatti Chiron Sport 110 Ans Edition, a fitting celebratory piece to Bugatti’s long and storied history in the business.
2018 Bugatti Chiron "Number One" Edition
In case you’re still in the market for a Bugatti Chiron, now’s as good a time as any to bring out the checkbooks because one particular example of the Chiron is scheduled to go up for auction at the RM Sothebys event in New York City this coming December 6. Even better, this isn’t just a “standard” Chiron; it’s been decked out in a special livery, has only 250 miles on the odometer, and hasn’t even been registered for road-use here in the U.S. All that and I still haven’t gotten to the best part as this Chiron is also the very first production Chiron and the first ordered for the U.S. market. There’s a reason, after all, why it’s called the Bugatti Chiron Number One.
Having said all that, the Chiron Number One’s estimated selling price sits at $3.5 million to $4 million. It’s a premium price compared to the supercar’s retail price of about $3 million, but don’t be surprised if it surpasses its own estimate, owing to the significance of this particular model as the first of its kind to come out of production. Should any of you be interested, you’re going to need to give yourselves some kind of latitude as far as how much you’re willing to bid for the car. I can’t speak for everyone else, but if I had the money to spend for this potentially historic Bugatti Chiron, I’d be all over it considering its historical potential as the first-production unit of its kind. And I’ll be honest. The 1966 Batmobile-inspired colors look pretty cool too.

Bugatti In No Rush To Develop Special Edition Models Of The Chiron
Bugatti has already indicated that it has no plans to build a roadster version of the Chiron and now it appears that special edition models are also off the table, at least for the time being. According to a report from Autocar, the supercar brand’s production plans won’t include special edition models primarily because of the level of interest people have had for the first 500 production units of the supercar.
More than 200 units of the Chiron are already accounted for and it appears that demand for the supercar hasn’t waned, specifically from individuals who have laid down “expressions of interest” in purchasing the $2.5-million exotic. The company’s focus at this point is to accommodate all the orders for the remaining Chiron units that are available and to see to it that the cars are delivered on time to their prospective owners.
Even though it’s not a priority at this point in time, don’t expect Bugatti to completely close its doors on special edition models. Those unique variants with the one-off color schemes proved to be a big hit for the Bugatti Veyron and they were considered big reasons why the Veyron’s life extended for as long as it did. The one-off units also provided Bugatti’s customers opportunities to own exclusive versions of the Veyron to add to their standard units.
Special edition versions of the Chiron will come at some point; the company’s just not at that stage yet and there’s no need to look too far ahead.

When Bugatti introduced the Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale, the "last production unit" of the supercar, at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, I honestly believed it would be the last Veyron to emerge from Molsheim. As it turns out, I was wrong, as a bespoke model delivered back in January just surfaced in the Interwebs to steal the show. It goes by the name Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Cristal Edition and was created for a Chinese collector who commissioned it for his girlfriend. There’s nothing wrong with that, as long as you fancy pink accents on a supercar.
Yup, this Veyron was wrapped in a two-tone, white-and-pink livery, which is probably why Bugatti didn’t bother to issue a press release or give it a proper introduction at an automotive event. With most Veyrons linked to classic Bugattis one way or another, I can understand why the French opted for a quiet delivery. On the other hand, the Cristal Edition isn’t the first pink Veyron to roam the streets, but more about that in the detailed review below.

As the world waits for the arrival of the Chiron, Bugatti has announced that the sun has officially set on that car’s predecessor, the Veyron. After 10 years of setting speed records around the world, Bugatti has produced the final Veyron ever, and it is aptly named “La Finale.”
Now, before you get up hopes of snatching up the last-ever Veyron, you’re too late. "La Finale" is already sold. However, the owner was kind enough to let the French showcase it at the Geneva Motor Show. where it will be displayed alongside the first-ever production Veyron from 2005. That should make for an incredible show stand!
La Finale represents the 450th example of the Veyron, and the 150th roadster model. To put that into context, Bugatti sold as many Veyrons in a decade that Ford sells F-Series trucks in the U.S. each day… before lunch. Wolfgang Dürheimer, president of Bugatti Automobiles, said that “an unprecedented chapter in automobile history has reached its climax” with the Veyron’s conclusion, but with the Chiron on the horizon (rumored for a 2017 introduction), there’s an entirely new chapter waiting to be written.
Updated 03/02/2015: Bugatti unveiled the official details and specs on the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse "La Finale" - the last Veyron that the company will build before bringing a new successor for the supercar.

Bugatti rocked the supercar world in 2005 by releasing the Veyron, its first production vehicle since the EB110, which was discontinued in 1995. Initially powered by a quad-turbocharged, 8.0-liter, W-16 engine that cranked out 987 horsepower, the Veyron was later updated and gifted with no less than 1,183 ponies and 1,106 pound-feet of torque. The French supercar is mostly know for being the fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a record sitting at 267.856 mph. Its roadster version, the Grand Sport Vitesse, holds the same benchmark for the world’s fastest open-top with a top speed of 254.04 mph. With only 15 units left to be built as of August 2014, Bugatti is sending the Veyron into the history books with yet another unique iteration, this time around created for an unnamed customer in Singapore.
Suggestively named "1 of 1," this bespoke Veyron was crafted using the same recipe that made Bugatti famous. However, there’s twist to the "1 of 1", which comes with more than a custom paintjob and a personalized interior. Not that these features are something to sneeze at, but it goes to show that Bugatti is capable of taking its customization program even further. Read on to find out why.

Bugatti stunned the entire world in 2005 by releasing the Veyron, its first production vehicle in 10 years. At first it was powered by a quad-turbocharged, 8.0-liter, W-16 engine rated at 987 horsepower, which was later uprated to deliver 1,183 ponies. It is mostly know for being the fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a record sitting at 267.856 mph. Its roadster version, the Grand Sport Vitesse, holds the same benchmark for the world’s fastest open-top with a top speed of 254.04 mph. Set to go out of production sometime in 2015, the Veyron is bidding the supercar market farewell through a series of "Les Legendes de Bugatti" special-edition models. The final version of the series — in all the series includes six special editions — pays tribute to Bugatti founder and designer Ettore Bugatti and Bugatti unveiled it just ahead of its official launch at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
As with most "Legends" Veyrons, it pays tribute to a very special person and an iconic Bugatti model from the company’s glorious past. This time around the French selected the Type 41 Royale, a 21-foot-long luxury car built in only six units between 1927 and 1933. Needless to say, this is a great way to send the current Veyron into the history books, while an even more impressive successor is being developed.
