$3.26 Million Bugatti Chiron Sport To Celebrate Its American Premiere In NY

Bugatti is bringing the Chiron Sport at the New York Auto Show for its North American premiere.

The new version of the Bugatti hypercar claims to offer sharper handling and even greater agility to those who want their Chiron a bit spicier and having the ability to lap the Nardo test track five seconds faster than the normal Chiron.

Bugatti has left the quad-turbo W16 untouched, which means the Chiron Sport continues to offer 1,500hp, and instead focused on making small changes into the chassis components: the suspension is now utilizing 10 percent stiffer dampers, the steering system is recalibrated and there more carbon fiber than before. Bugatti claims that the suspension changes take effect with the Handling mode engaged.

Add on top of that a set of new lightweight alloy wheels and the world’s first carbon fiber windscreen wipers and the Bugatti Chiron Sport manages to drop 18kg (40lbs) from the normal Chiron’s weight figure. There’s also Dynamic Torque Vectoring and a retuned rear differential.

The slightly sharper Chiron Sport also gets an interior with the usual exposed carbon-fiber elements and special ‘Chiron Sport’ logos on places like the centre console and door sills.

If you happen to be an existing Chiron owner -in which case, congratulations- Bugatti will happily convert your hypercar to the Sport specification if you feel the need to.

The basic price for the Bugatti Chiron Sport in the U.S. market is set at a heart-stopping $3.26 million, including transport, customs duties, taxes and fees. The first customer cars are expected to be delivered at the end of the year.
