The first customer delivery has also been made in the US.
With the debut of the bonkers Bugatti Bolide last year, you'd be forgiven for forgetting all about the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport. One of the stars of last year's online-only Geneva Motor Show, the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport is a more track-focused version of the Chiron with improved downforce and cornering that make it easier to tame on the track.
Now, nearly a year after its debut, the first examples are arriving in America. Bugatti of Greenwich has made the very first US customer delivery of the Chiron Pur Sport. Finished in Quartz White, this particular Chiorn Pur Sport is equipped with exposed carbon fiber, an optional Sky View roof, titanium 3D printed exhaust, and black anodized metals. Complementing the exterior is an Italian Red leather and Alcantara interior.
It was delivered to Instagram user sparky18888, who was the first person in the world to receive delivery of their Chiron Pur Sport. Technically, this isn't the first Chiron Pur Sport to arrive in America, however. That would be another example that was delivered to Automobiles Etcetera in Montreal, Canada. This owner opted for an eye-catching Viper Green exterior with contrasting gloss carbon. Carbon valve covers are also added to the engine. Inside, the interior is trimmed in contrasting black Alcantara. These are just two out of the 60 Chiron Pur Sports planned for production.
Powering the Chiron Pur Sport is an 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W16 engine rated at 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic featuring 15-percent shorter gear ratios. This enables the Chiron Pur Sport to rocket from 0-62 mph in 2.3 seconds, while the top speed is limited to 217 mph, down from 261 mph in the regular Chiron.
It may have a slower top speed, but the Chiron Pur Sport makes up for it in the handling department. A massive rear wing increases the downforce by 110 pounds, the suspension is 65 percent stiffer at the front and 33 percent stiffer at the rear, and the magnesium wheels wrapped in grippier tires reduce the car's unsprung weight.
