Goodbye Dubai, hello Hajar! Bugatti test driver and Le Mans winner Andy Wallace made the most of his time following the launch of the new Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport in Dubai to take an extended trip to Hatta. (see video below)
The exclave of the Emirate of Dubai is located approximately 100 kilometres south-east of the city of Dubai in the Hajar mountains on the border to Oman. One characteristic feature of the region surrounding Hatta is above all bends, bends, and more bends. The ideal terrain for the new Chiron Pur Sport and Andy Wallace.
The Bugatti engineers developed the new Chiron Pur Sport uncompromisingly for lateral dynamics – thereby expanding the range with a road-legal hyper sports car that offers outstanding driving characteristics. These include maximum agility, handling and driving performance. Ideal for fast cornering.
Another extraordinary design feature is the Jaune Molsheim and Carbon colour split. While the entire bottom third features black exposed carbon fibre, the dominant colour on the upper body is yellow. In the side view, the dark surfaces merge with the colour of the road surface and make the Pur Sport appear even flatter and more dynamic. Black also dominates on the rear wings, the wheels, the radiators and the air intakes.
And to match: the 8.0-litre W16 engine with 1,500 PS and 1,600 newton metres of torque. Thanks to a 15 percent shorter transmission ratio, the Chiron Pur Sport accelerates even faster than a Chiron. It is now possible to accelerate from 0 to 100 in only 2.3 seconds instead of 2.4 seconds, and from 0 to 200 in 5.9 seconds instead of 6.1 seconds. Moreover, it accelerates in sixth gear from 60 to 120 km/h in 4.4 seconds instead of 7.4 seconds. The maximum speed is electronically limited at 350 km/h.
The production version of the Chiron Pur Sport, which is limited to 60 units and is priced at three million euros (net), is being built in Molsheim, France.
Press Release From January 15: 2021 begins with the world’s first delivery of a Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport1 in the USA. Bugatti Greenwich, official dealer partner of the French luxury brand, recently handed over to its customer the keys to happiness. “Bugatti of Greenwich is honored to have delivered the world’s first Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport to a very valued and loyal client. A long time Bugatti aficionado who now holds the keys to the purest Bugatti ever made,” says Evan Cygler, Sales Manager Bugatti Greenwich.
Like every Bugatti, the first Chiron Pur Sport is unique and individualized to perfection down to the smallest detail by its new owner: On the outside, the upper part of the vehicle is dominated by Quartz White with Pur Sport Split in Grey Carbon, while the lower part is also in grey exposed carbon. The entire roof, rear wing, horseshoe and side mirrors are also in Grey Carbon, with accents in “Gun Powder”. The icing on the cake: the optional Sky View, which gives the driver a view of the sky. The Pur Sport color split contrasts with the “Italian Red” leather interior.
Bugatti has calibrated the Chiron Pur Sport for agility, handling and driving performance. In addition to immense power; it also offers a high level of comfort and is suitable for everyday use. It is powered by an 8.0 litre W16 engine delivering 1,500 PS and 1,600 newton metres that is designed for an engine speed of up to 6,900 rpm in the agile Chiron Pur Sport. With the assistance of a 15 percent shorter transmission ratio, the Chiron Pur Sport accelerates even faster than the Chiron2. The Chiron Pur Sport catapults from zero to 100 km/h in just 2.3 seconds, to 200 km/h in a mere 5.5 seconds and to 300 km/h in less than twelve seconds. Compared to the Chiron, the new model’s elasticity has improved to 3.4 seconds in the 60 to 100 km/h range and to just 2.4 seconds from 80 to 120 km/h. Grip-optimised tyres and sophisticated aerodynamics with a fixed rear wing ensure more downforce and lateral dynamics.
The Chiron Pur Sport is produced in the Atelier in Molsheim, Alsace since autumn 2020. In total there will only be 60 vehicles at a unit price of 3 million euros (net).
