Bugatti's complete Hypercar lineup
You can really see the versatility of the new Chiron platform in its different avatars that can take on any challenge. Whether you want to be tackling corners (the Chiron Pur Sport) or getting those top speed runs (Chiron Super Sport), Bugatti has a car for you. The company also claims the average Bugatti owner has at least 50 cars in his or her collection, so for a billionaire to add a couple more variants of the Chiron would not be a tough ask. So in the times of quarantine, all we can do is take a detailed look at the entire line up from Bugatti to help enrich our daydream fantasies.
Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport
Targeted towards handling the twisty road and with a goal of increasing cornering speeds, the Pur Sport Has been specially engineered to increase driver pleasure rather than just the usual Chiron party trick that is top speed run. Bugatti achieved this by reducing the overall kerb weight of the Chiron, added stiffer springs and with a little help from Michelin tyres provided a set of customers Bugatti Cup 2 tyres, made for an overall better handling than the standard car. Engine-wise, it still uses the same 8-litre W16 engine producing about 1500bhp.

Bugatti made the Centodieci as a tribute to its 90’s supercar, the EB110. So design-wise it takes a lot of cues from that classic supercar car in terms of the sharp lines and the overall wedge shape design. It looks like a concept car but Bugatti is just making 10 examples of them and they have all been sold out. It’s the Hypercar if you want to be exclusive even in the '1per cent' club.
Bugatti Super Sport 300+
Currently the record holder for the world's fastest production car with a top speed record-breaking run off 489kmph set last year at the Volkswagen Ehra-Lehssien Oval, a high-speed test track you can see from space. To achieve this Bugatti re-shaped the Chiron by giving it a longer tail design and removing its active rear wing, all adding up to make for a more slippery aerodynamic car. Bugatti also tweaked the motor by bumping the power up to about 1600bhp. Only 30 units of this variant of the Chiron will be produced and they have all been spoken for.

Bugatti La Voiture Noire
Its claim to fame was that it was the most expensive new car for sale with a price tag approximately Rs 83 crore. The car features a design that pays tribute to the iconic Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, giving it a very modern art deco look and feel. Only three have been said to be made by Bugatti. You will have to look at this as more of an expression of automotive art as over time it will only go up in value.

The devil is all about achieving maximum downforce and increasing lateral acceleration so it can be more of a track-ready weapon so that owners can’t show up to track days and dominate the timesheets. It’s also quicker than the Chiron around the Nardo test track by almost 8 seconds (as Bugatti claims). Only 40 units of this billionaire trackday toy are slated to enter production. .
Bugatti Chiron Sport
In this hypercar lineup, the Chiron Sport looks to be like the complete package that offers grand touring comfort with all the hypercar exclusivity and performance. And among this lot of hypercar, it is the most affordable option over here.
