US, WASHINGTON (NEWS OBSERVATORY) — Bugatti has been producing just one model for many years – but at the same time supplying it with a huge number of variations and special versions.
This time, plans were announced to build a total of 16 Chironas named Pur Sport, designed for particularly involved drivers.
The hypercar experienced many improvements that affected not only its appearance, but also the chassis, and even the monumental power unit.
The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport retained the eight-liter W16 with a “four” turbocharged engine with a capacity of 1,500 hp, but the engine cut-off was shifted slightly upwards – by 200 rpm, up to 6,900 revolutions. And the hypercar has recalibrated the gearbox.
Engineers 15% closer gear ratios to exacerbate the reaction of the hypercar to the accelerator. It is argued that at the same time, elasticity improved by 40% compared with the donor.
“Chiron” shook the suspension, changing the characteristics of shock absorbers and installing stiffer springs – 65% stiffer on the front axle and 33% on the rear. Another difference between Pur Sport is 16-kg lightweight wheels with Michelin Bugatti Sport Cup 2 R special tires. “Shave off” a few more pounds allowed titanium in the brakes.
The exhaust system also became titanium. In addition, the hypercar acquired new aerodynamic elements made of carbon fiber, including a front splitter and a rear fixed rear wing with a width of almost 2 meters.
Production of driver’s Chiron Pur Sport will begin in the second half of the year. Bugatti plans to sell such hypercars at a price of 3.2 million euros, that is, at least 236 million rubles.
