Bugatti is ready to drop jaws at the 2019 New York Auto Show with a limited edition of the Chiron that will be on display for the next week and a half.
Its official name is the Chiron Sport ‘110 Ans Bugatti’ and was made as a celebration to the brand’s 110th anniversary as well as a tribute to France. Like other special edition Bugattis, this one is also a limited run; only 20 units will be assembled, and all have been been spoken for.
“Even though all 20 units of this car are sold, Bugatti is proud to share this special model in New York, as part of the company’s 110th anniversary celebration”, said Bugatti of Americas’ CEO, Maurizio Parlato. “The Chiron Sport embodies the achievements Bugatti has made across its rich history, and the ‘110 Ans Bugatti’ is a tribute to France that we can share with our customers and fans.”
The multi-million dollar hypercar has visible carbon fiber bodywork and aluminum grille and sports the French flag colors on certain parts of the exterior, including the underside of the rear spoiler and side mirror casings. The same colors, which symbolize the ideals of liberty (blue), equality (white) and fraternity (red) – or liberté, égalité, fraternité – adorn the cockpit and can be seen on the headrests and backrests.
Absolutely no one is interested in a Bugatti’s fuel consumption, yet the automaker has nevertheless reminded as that the Chiron Sport ‘110 Ans’ is one thirsty animal. The 1,479 hp (1,500 PS / 1,103 kW) 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine returns 6.7/15.4/10.4 mpg (35.2/15.2/22.5 l/100 km / 8/18.6/12.6 mpg UK) in city/highway/combined (at least officially – good luck trying to verify them on the road…) and emits 516 g/km of CO2.
Well, that’s how you travel in luxury at dizzying speeds, as naught to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) takes 2.4 seconds and top speed is limited to 261 mph (420 km/h).
