Bugatti’s 110th Anniversary Chiron Sport Is a Tribute to France

Bugatti Chiron Sport “110 ans Bugatti”

Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. said, "With the limited Chiron Sport "110 ans Bugatti", Bugatti is ushering in the 110th anniversary of its foundation".

Truth be told, this auto - of which just 20 will be built - doesn't have a whole lot in common with the Type 10. The most obvious changes involve splashing the French tricolour flag on the mirror caps, the fuel filler cap and on the underside of the vast rear wing. The front end consists of exposed carbon fibre in Steel Blue Carbon, once again a matt colour suggestive of steel.

Behind the alloy wheels painted in "Nocturne" matt black, the bright blue brake calipers are visible.

Inside, the vehicle is detailed with the distinct tricolor stripes on its headrests and backrests of the two-tone blue leather and Alcantara seats to further reference its historic French roots. Finally, a "specially crafted medallion" takes pride of place on the centre console stowage space, made of carbon fibre and solid silver with enamel inserts, it bears witness to the car's high level of craftsmanship, apparently.

There aren't any mechanical upgrades, so the "110 ans Bugatti" is forced to make do with the same 1,500hp and 1,180lb ft as the standard Chiron Sport's 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 produces, although it also benefits from the same 18kg weight saving over the standard vehicle thanks to all that carbon fibre.

Power (and that's a true understatement here) is as per the regular Chiron Sport, with an 8-litre, 16-cylinder, quad-turbo petrol engine pushing 1103kW and 1600Nm.

More carbon-fibre is used for the nacelle, steering wheel, steering column and seat trims, while the door trims, sides and seats areas are covered in Alcantara.

Instead of some clear nods to the old Type 10, Bugatti has turned the Chiron into a celebration of France, where Italian-born Ettore spent much of his life. Since 2018, this has also included the Bugatti Divo, a hyper auto with modified aerodynamics designed for significantly higher lateral acceleration. Even the magic figure of 400 km/h can be reached in only 32.6 seconds.
