You're looking at a very special Bugatti Chiron Sport.
Two years ago, the Bugatti Chiron entered production and set a new benchmark for luxury hypercars. Since then, 200 Chirons have rolled off Bugatti's production line – and this is the 200th car. It's not just any Chiron either, as the 200th example is a limited-edition Chiron Sport 110 Ans and will be delivered to its owner in Switzerland.
"You can't feel anything but pride when you see this 200th Chiron emerge from the factory," said Stephan Winkelmann, president of Bugatti. "Also, this model marks the celebration of our company history and recalls our French heritage. The different shades of blue used on this Chiron Sport lend it a timeless elegance." Mr. Winkelmann is also quick to acknowledge the accomplishments of the Molsheim workforce: "The quality and dedication of everyone involved in a Bugatti car is unique in the world and demonstrates the passion that we bring to our work."
Production of the Bugatti Chiron is insanely intricate. Each car takes ten months to build, while final assembly is carried out at the Alsace sites and takes eight weeks. In 2017, the first year the Chiron was manufactured, 70 cars were completed, but the output has increased each year. 76 Chirons rolled off the assembly line last year, and Bugatti expects to produce over 80 by the end of this year. Bugatti also confirmed that less than 100 Chirons are available to order out of the 500 unit production run.
"It's a special event, the year is a significant one, and so is the car, which makes it doubly special," said Christophe Piochon, Bugatti Production Director. "It's not every day that you can see in the Atelier, a model with very few differences, even with the various personalization, in different production phases at once. The anniversary Chiron Sport "110 ans Bugatti" makes it possible, with this week at least four of the 20 cars being built at the same time."
Designed to celebrate Bugatti's 100th anniversary and French heritage, the Chiron Sport 110 Ans is decorated with the French tricolor inside and out, while the "Sky View" glass roof panels allow extra light into the cockpit. The engine block is painted in "Steel Blue" contrasted with visible carbon as a homage to two-tone luxury cars made by Bugatti in the 1920s. Only 20 examples of the Bugatti Chiron Sport 110 Ans are slated for production.
