This Chiron Sport has been named 'Alice'.
While husbands and boyfriends the world over are increasingly fretting about Valentine's Day plans for their better halves and trying to settle on the perfect combination of flowers, chocolates, and bubbly, others with deeper pockets have made far grander gestures of love.
A special Bugatti Chiron Sport affectionately named 'Alice' was ordered by a husband as a gift for his wife, although it's not absolutely clear what the occasion was, not that it matters. While the Chiron Sport delivers a positively manly 1,479 horsepower, this particular example has a softer side. It's finished in a combination of Matt Blanc and Silk Rose, and there's no other Chiron quite like it.
Like Rolls-Royce with its Bespoke program and Bentley with its Mulliner division, Bugatti is proud of its bespoke program which allows each vehicle to leave the Atelier in Molsheim as a unique creation that meets the customer's exacting wishes. The 'Alice' name has also been applied to the door sills, and the personalization continues inside with the unique logo stitched into the headrests.
Much of the interior is finished in a light hue that's a departure from most other Bugattis we've seen, but the same mix of high-quality leather and Alcantara applies here. The more feminine aesthetic is at odds with the Chiron's brutal performance; this is, after all, a car that can reach 60 mph in under 2.5 seconds thanks to that 8.0-liter W16 quad-turbo engine.
The journey of 'Alice' first began at H.R. Owen Bugatti in London, England, prior to the customer being accompanied to Bugatti's headquarters in Molsheim, France.
"This is a truly unique Bugatti model that will always be remembered as a real one-of-a-kind car," said CEO of H.R. Owen, Ken Choo. "It is incredible to see every Bugatti made in a different way, with the new owner getting a chance to stamp their own personal taste on their new car."
At over three million dollars and with its lovely Silk Rose paint job, 'Alice' is unlikely to disappoint its future owner. The rest of us will have to settle for actual roses.
