bugatti's 110th anniversary chiron sport is a tribute to france

the new chiron sport ‘110 ans bugatti‘ bears one of the most famous symbols of a proud nation – the tricolor ‘le bleu-blanc-rouge’. blue, white and red, decorate the body and interiors of the french car manufacturer’s latest model, representative of a flag which today, symbolizes the the french revolution with its famous ideals of liberty (blue), equality (white) and fraternity (red).

at several points bugatti features the french tricolor to narrate the country’s pride and history. for example, on the right-hand side of the vehicle the colors of the french flag are shown as a mirror image. this follows the standard of official vehicles in the country, where the color of liberty (blue) is brought to the fore on both sides. behind the alloy wheels painted in ‘nocturne” matt black, bright blue (french racing blue) brake calipers are visible. to obtain an immaculate finish, the aluminium filler cap is sandblasted and hand-polished, displaying the ‘110 ans bugatti’ emblem with the french flag running vertically throughout.



the underside of the rear spoiler boasts the french flag over its entire width. it also features at several points in the interior including two headrests and the back rests of the sports seats, decorated by high-quality embroidery with the french flag in a vertical position, and the 12 o’clock mark on the leather steering wheel. the interior is upholstered in soft deep blue leather. The door trims, sides and seat areas of the sports seats are covered in alcantara. bright french racing blue elements on the contours of the seats, stowage compartments, belt trims and the leather of the window buttons provide a sporting contrast. finally, the key of the ‘110 ans bugatti’ is surrounded by three sewn leather patches in the colours of the tricolour.



as you can deduce from its name, this limited edition of the chiron celebrates bugatti’s 110th anniversary. the body and the front end are made from carbon fibre and the bugatti line and the typical bugatti radiator from aluminium. carbon fibre is also be found on the nacelle, steering wheel, steering column and seat trims. a matt steel blue paintwork covers the rear of the car with a sheen like hot-rolled steel. this colour continues to the typical bugatti line, the dominant ‘C’ surrounding the passenger compartment, is also painted steel blue.



the front end consists of exposed carbon fibre in steel blue carbon, once again a matt colour suggestive of steel. the two-tone colour scheme is reminiscent of historic models: in the 1920s, this type of paintwork was a sign of luxury and exclusiveness, while it now signals a sporting character and high technological competence. in the case of the chiron ‘110 ans bugatti’, the colour scheme divides the bodywork into the monocoque and engine compartment.



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. the sky view roof consisting of two fixed glass panels above the driver’s and passenger’s seats, available as an option on the chiron, is a standard feature of the special edition. the vehicle boasts a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine that can jump from zero to 62mph in 2.5 seconds, and tops out at 261mph. for more on the bugatti chiron sport ‘110 ans bugatti,’ and its availability, visit the brand’s website.
