Last year, Bugatti boss Stephan Winkelmann announced the French company will unveil two new versions of the Chiron in 2020. Staying true to its promise, today the supercar manufacturer has unveiled the Chiron Pur Sport which puts the emphasis on aerodynamics, weight reduction, and power distribution.
It’s the same 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine underneath the skin but it’s now mated to a recalibrated automatic gearbox. While the peak output remains unchanged at 1,500 horsepower (1,103 kilowatts), the rpm redline has been set 200 rpm higher than on the “standard” Chiron and is now at 6,900 rpm. In addition, 15-percent closer gear ratios of the gearbox further improve the power delivery and engine response which results in 40 percent better elasticity values compared with the Chiron.
