Bugatti Chiron '110 ans Bugatti' edition celebrates 110th anniversary

On the body side mirrors and the lower part of the wing caused the French tricolor. That's 110 years ago, and Bugatti would like to celebrate this anniversary with a special edition of the Chiron Sport - the "110 ans Bugatti". Buyers have been limited to the virtually unchanged "42", which marked the car's record breaking performance, or the far more extreme Divo, which was an even greater departure from the standard vehicle than expected. Composite is used for manufacturing outer panels, front and aerodynamic elements.

The front end is clad in exposed carbon fiber and a matte Steel Blue Carbon finish, evoking historic models of the 1920s. Matt black wheels covering blue brake callipers complete the main exterior revisions.

The special edition models use the colour scheme of the French tricolour "Le Bleu-Blanc-Rouge", with its colours of blue, white and red. Powertrain in the Bugatti Chiron Sport "110 Ans" Edition remains untouched. Carbon-fibre has been used on the steering wheel, steering column and seat trims too. The door trims, sides and seat areas of the sports seats are covered in Alcantara. It's done in the same deep blue as the exterior, broken by a tri-color stripe running down the center of each seat and a small French flag on the steering wheel. The key of the "110 ans Bugatti" is surrounded by three sewn leather patches in the colours of the tricolour.

Flanagan, Scrivener tied for Vic Open lead
On the women's side, Oh nailed a spectacular hole-in-one at the 149 metre 15th hole to balance the day's tournament sensations. The 36-year-old's streak set a European Tour record while equalling former British Open victor Calcavecchia's U.S.

Instead of some clear nods to the old Type 10, Bugatti has turned the Chiron into a celebration of France, where Italian-born Ettore spent much of his life. As a finishing touch, there's a "specially crafted medallion" in the centre console storage bin, made from solid silver. Only 20 units will be made available in the market.

Performance figures stay the same, with the Chiron Sport's 8.0 litre quad-turbo W16 engine serving up 1,479 hp (1,500 PS) and 1,600 Nm of torque. It'll crack 0-60mph in less than 2.4 seconds and tops out at 261mph. This is an industrial product of considerable artistic merit.
