Bugatti Chiron Tries On New Wheels For Size: Hot Or Not?

Fitting a car with new wheels isn’t that big of a deal. Unless you actually own something really, really special, like, say, a hypercar.

The Bugatti Chiron definitely belongs in the hypercar niche, what with the quad-turbo Q16 churning out a round, nice 1,500 PS, and that’s why we decided to share an example that has been fitted with new rims.

Made by Vossen, the LC2-C1 features a split five-spoke pattern and a brushed look, which was applied subsequently to polishing. Before being fitted to the Chiron, though, the rims received a Light Smoke transparent finish, and the company’s special center caps that sit where the Bugatti logo used to be.

Shod with Pirelli P Zero tires, the wheels aren’t exclusive to the Chiron, as they can be had from 19- to 24-inch in size and in different finishes. Vossen is asking $6,000 for the base set, although we reckon that, with the options, these wheels probably cost as much as a small SUV – and we’re not even counting the new rubber. And that’s not bad at all, considering that the Bugatti Chiron is priced at around $3 million.

This is actually Vossen’s second encounter with the owner of this particular Chiron, who previously took a Ferrari LaFerrari to the wheelmaker some three years ago. The company then created a set of 9×20-inch front and 12.5×21-inch rear one-off forged rims for the hybrid hypercar, as part of their Bespoke Design Program.

    You know simplicity is the key when it comes to monoliths.

  • Bananarama

    They’re absurd, but somehow kind of work. The body is very smooth and minimal so the detail in the wheel stands out nicely. The little cut outs in the outer ring also resemble the headlight arrays which is cool.

    No.

  • VULGAR.

  • Zandit75

    Surely something else in the Vossen range would look better than these.

  • Six_Tymes

    The Stock wheels are WAY better, so, NO.

  • Jeremy Trentham

    I’m gonna say no Chiron owner will ever buy these – I’m sure the stock wheel/tire combination is infinitely superior in engineering, weight, quality etc etc….

    • Well not in Florida or in West Coast, everyone wants something unique, wouldn’t surprised me if there is Chiron with aftermarket wheels (and audio system)

    • Mr. EP9

      Well, these wheels are a one off for this particular owner so other owners couldn’t get one even if they tried.

  • Nordschleife

    I want to say I’ll pass but something about them works. I am torn.

    • john1168

      Maybe they’d look good on another car?

      • Nordschleife

        I don’t know. They don’t look bad but something about them just seem off. Maybe so.

  • TheBelltower

    Vossen makes some decent aftermarket wheels. But they don’t work here.

  • Vassilis

    Interesting…

  • Six Thousand Times

    They’re OK, I ‘m at they aren’t black. No reason to choose them over the standard wheels, though.

  • john1168

    They don’t do it for me. They are cool rims and I’m sure complicated to manufacture but it’s not a style I’m into.

  • In my opinion, it didn’t fit well.

  • UhhHuhh

    Vossen…LOL

  • Viper

    Aside from the size, they look more like $800 rims. Not $6000.

  • Loquacious Borborygmus

    Well, I like them.

  • It is interesting how OEM parts (including wheels) carve themselves into the mind: you see this and instantly think “something’s wrong”, regardless of the fit…

  • Bash

    No.

  • shamrock

    Looks like they kinda copied Lamborghini Veneno wheels

  • Big Black Duck

    yet…everyones okay with door handles from a Golf?

  • rodriguez256

    They don’t fit the look of the car. The only good thing I have to say about them is that they’re at least not black.

  • Puddingpopper

    Literal Trash

  • gbmike25

    I dont get all the hype…other than the speed…the entire package is fugly, new rims or not

  • Major Lee Gassole

    I’m sure management could care less what their employees thought, but someone at Vossen should have stood up and told them they were a bad choice. Ugly, tacky wheels and ultimately an embarrassment to the company. This should be an example in a cartrocity article.
