In 2019 Stephan Winkelmann has promised two new versions for the Chiron. The first one has been announced. It’s the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, a very exclusive version for a car that is already very exclusive! Only 16 units will be produced.
The new model is 19 kilograms lighter than the original Chiron and has a lot of improvements to make it more dynamic and agile in the corners. The engine is the same 8.0 W16, but tuned for the double clutch 7 speed transmission and it still produces 1.500 bhp and now it goes up to 6900 rpm.
There are a few changes on the aerodynamics with the goal of improving the downforce. The car will come with a 1.9-meter rear spoiler and the titanium exhaust system was renewed and 3d printed, making it lighter and resistant to higher temperatures.
The Chiron Pur Sport also gets a new set of wheels, developed for a better air flow to the breaks. This new “Aero” wheels will be equipped with Michelin tires.
And if all that wasn’t enough, the hyper car also got adjustments in the chassis. The suspension is 65% more stiff in the front and 33% at the rear, with an adaptive control that can be adjusted for better performance.
The titanium breaks and wheels are responsible for 16 of the 19 kilograms lost by the car. Stephan Winkelmann affirmed that the clients wanted a car more agile and dynamic on the corners, making it great for curvy roads. The car stars at 3.2 million euros and starts to be assembled in late 2020.
