  Bugatti Chiron Sport Is 40 Lbs Lighter, Faster In Corners The car in Geneva costs $3.67 million. Research Research New Used New & Used Make (e.g. Cadillac) Model (e.g. Escalade) Two years into the production of the Chiron, Bugatti has revealed the even more extreme Chiron Sport version. It doesn’t have additional power, but thanks to a number of other improvements, the French manufacturer says, it’s significantly faster on corners.The supercar now benefits from a new dynamic handling package and a revised and stiffer suspension.

Two years after introducing the Chiron, Bugatti is rolling out a version that promises even better performance. The Bugatti Chiron Sport receives a handling package and a healthy dose of carbon fiber, but no boost in output over the standard model.

  Set Of Spare Tires For The Bugatti Vision GT Cost $93,000 Watch the one-off hypercar get delivered to its new owner in L.A.Super wealthy and in the market for a rare hypercar? Sure, you could take home a Bugatti Veyron or its more powerful successor, the Chiron, but why not opt for the uber-rare Vision GT concept instead. That’s exactly what one Los Angeles-based collector did, and video shows him taking delivery of his one-of-a-kind new ride.



The Chiron Sport benefits from stiffer suspension settings and sharper steering when set to Handling mode. Bugatti retuned the rear differential, and a new Dynamic Torque Vectoring feature sends torque individually to the wheels on each side for improved agility no matter the selected driving mode. The Sport manages to shed about 40 pounds from the standard model with new lightweight wheels, lighter glass for the rear window, and a lighter, four-pipe exhaust deflector. Carbon fiber, found on the intercooler cover and stabilizer, also contributes to this weight savings.

Packing a 8.0-liter W-16, the Bugatti Chiron Sport offers the same 1,479 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque as the standard model. But Bugatti says the supercar can lap the Nardo handling circuit in the south of Italy 5 seconds quicker than the standard Chiron. The automaker also claims the Sport can reach its full handling potential even at cornering speeds greater than 124 mph.

Bentley may use the Barnato name for its zero-emission creation. Audi has labeled its J1 variant the e-tron GT.

Smaller improvements include carbon-fiber windshield wipers, engine start button and drive mode knob with anodized black finish, and "Sport" logos inside the cabin. There are different two-tone color schemes available for the exterior: red, blue, silver, or dark gray paired with gray carbon for the rear of the vehicle. Buyers can bathe their Chiron Sport in leather or Alcantara. Carbon fiber is left exposed on the dashboard, backrests, door trim, and steering column.

Bugatti will deliver the first copies of the Chiron Sport by the end of the year. So how about the price tag? In the U.S., the Chiron Sport will cost $3.67 million when it arrives.

It's likely Bugatti will inject more power into the Chiron at some point. Special versions of the Veyron including the Super Sport delivered 200 more hp than the standard version. However, 1,479 hp should be plenty for most mortals.

It worked closely with the engineers at Bugatti to make sure everything is exactly how it appears on the real car. Look close and you'll find all of the parts numbers, barcodes and hose clamps are exactly the same, just smaller. Like the real engine, this W16 features four scale turbochargers. All in, there was roughly 2,500 hours or more than three months of development time. Each model takes 220 hours to assemble, hence the $9,365 price tag.
