Bugatti has arrived at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show with a new hotter version of the Chiron called the Chiron Sport. Pictured here in a menacing color combination of red and black, the Chiron Sport has been created to be more driver-focused and better performer around the race track. It features no additional power from the massive 8.0-liter W16 engine, which still produces the same 1,479 horsepower. Neither does it have a faster 0-60mph time or an improved top speed. Instead, Bugatti has shaved off 40 pounds from the weight, achieved by using lighter wheels and more ultra-lightweight carbon fiber components including a carbon fiber windscreen wiper. Bugatti claims that it is a first for production cars and weighs 77 percent less than the standard ones.
To make it more track-focused, Bugatti has tweaked the suspension setup. The dampers on the Chiron Sport are ten per cent stiffer than standard. The steering also has been improved along with tweaked rear differential, which now features a torque vectoring function to boost on-throttle adjustability. Bugatti claims that the Chiron Sport is faster by 5 seconds around Nardo’s handling circuit thanks to all the changes. In terms of visual changes, the Chiron Sport is available in a limited selection of colors for the front end including red, blue, silver and dark grey. The interior has also been mildly tweaked, which sports a darker theme than the standard model. Prices for the Chiron Sport start at 2.65 million euros (approximately $3.28 million USD).
