New Bugatti Chiron Sport Is Lighter And More Dynamic, Has €2.65 Million Base Price

Bugatti’s surprise for this year’s Geneva Motor Show is a slightly tweaked version of the Chiron.

Baptized Bugatti Chiron Sport, it arrives with no change in power or performance data, but with “significantly improved handling and even greater agility”, according to the Molsheim-based company.

It’s priced from €2.65 million in Europe, without tax, and from $3.26 million in the United States, including taxes, fees, custom duties, and transport. Deliveries will commence at the end of the year.

Thanks to the addition of new lightweight wheels, and increased use of carbon fiber, including on the windscreen wiper, the new Bugatti Chiron Sport is 18kg (40lbs) lighter. It benefits from a stiffer suspension too, with 10 percent stiffer shock absorbers, and modified steering that doesn’t sacrifice the feedback.

These changes take effect in the Handling mode, and are joined by the optimized rear-axle differential and Dynamic Torque Vectoring. The latter change is effective in all driving modes.

On paper, the Bugatti Chiron Sport doesn’t seem that impressive compared to the regular hypercar. However, the automaker claims that the new one “is five seconds faster than the base Chiron model” on the Nardo test track, adding that “it can reach its full handling potential even at cornering speeds in excess of 200km/h (124mph)”.

Its carbon fiber appliqués and special wheels are what set the Chiron Sport apart on the outside. In the cabin, it gets the ‘Chiron Sport’ logo embroidered on the central console, and the ‘Sport’ logo on the door sill strips, in addition to the anodized black finish for the engine starter button, drive mode selector, and marketing plate.

The Bugatti Chiron Sport presented in Geneva is finished in Italian Red, adorned with visible grey carbon fiber, and boasting black-dominant interior with red contrast stitching. The hypercar can also be had in French Racing Blue, Gris Rafale, and Gun Poweder as well.

This example is said to feature “all the options available”, and as a result, it costs €2.98 million net in Europe, and $3.672 million gross in the United States. This “probably makes it the most expensive production car on display at this year’s show”, added Bugatti.
