Special Chiron Sport Celebrates Bugatti's 110th Anniversary

That's 110 years ago, and Bugatti would like to celebrate this anniversary with a special edition of the Chiron Sport - the "110 ans Bugatti".

There aren't any mechanical upgrades, so the "110 ans Bugatti" is forced to make do with the same 1,500hp and 1,180lb ft as the standard Chiron Sport's 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 produces, although it also benefits from the same 18kg weight saving over the standard vehicle thanks to all that carbon fibre.

Much of the 1479bhp hypercar's bodywork revisions are themed around France's blue, white and red tricolour flag. The most prominent use of that is on the underside of the Chiron's movable rear wing, while stripes also feature on the door mirrors and aluminium filler caps on both sides. The rear spoiler mechanism is anodized in matt black to harmonize with the matt black Ettore Bugatti logo on the centre of the rear, the matt black wheels and the matching sports exhaust system.

PB Balaji, CFO, Tata Motors , said , "The 4-7 percent guidance was for the period between FY20 and FY22". Excluding the one-off accounting charge, JLR lost £273m before tax during the last quarter.

Dark blue is used throughout the cabin, while French Racing Blue highlights are found on the seats, window controls, seat belts, and storage areas. The sports steering wheel comes finished with a matt carbon fibre with a blue leather cover. The entire interior is decorated in blue leather, while the trim is Alcantara. A Sky View glass panel roof is also added, along with a solid silver medallion mounted on a carbon fiber plate fitted on the center console.

Bugatti says the old Type 10 had "adequate power", and this very special and very French Chiron definitely has that-its 8.0-litre W16 engine with four turbochargers makes a whopping 1,479 horsepower. The vehicle will have a limited run of 20 cars. "The ultimate hyper sports auto from France is still the most powerful, highest-quality, fastest and most comfortable gran turismo in existence - a blend of elegance, quality, unique character and power", says Stephan Winkelmann. The special model celebrating the 110anniversary of the brand's existence in France keeps up this tradition.
