Bugatti recently presented the Chiron Pur Sport to customers in the UK. The new hypercar was unveiled at a private event held at H.R.Owen Bugatti.
The Pur Sport was supposed to debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. However, after the show was cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the hypercar was unveiled virtually.
The Pur Sport is powered by an 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W16 engine which pumps out 1500 hp. In the Pur Sport, the engine revs to 6900 rpm, 200 rpm higher than the standard Chiron. The gear ratios have also been reworked for better acceleration as opposed to top speed.
The Pur Sport is lighter than standard Chiron and has way more downforce courtesy of the modified bodywork, a large rear spoiler and diffuser. The car also gets special aero wheels. The stiffer suspension setup is said to improve handling even further.
Bugatti is building just 60 Pur Sports. The base price of one of these is $3.55 million.
