Bugatti and RM Sotheby’s have dropped a teaser on their respective social handles. The image doesn’t reveal much except for the fact that a one-off model will be auctioned just days ahead of Christmas.
The new one-off Bugatti will be unveiled on December 21, 2022, at what is likely to be a private event. Now, if you’re wondering what Bugatti means by “automotive solitaire”, you’ve come to the right place.
According to reliable sources, the one-off is actually based on the Chiron Pur Sport. As you’re aware, this is a track-focused version of the Chiron built to attack corners. The new one-off is a softer “Touring” style model and will feature a ducktail spoiler instead. It’s like what the GT3 Touring is to the standard 911 GT3.
Now, the technical details of the car are still unknown, however, we can expect the Touring Pur Sport to be powered by the same 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W16 engine developing 1500 hp and 1180 lb-ft.
Moreover, the new one-off is likely to be the last iteration of the Chiron. It will be interesting to see how the bidding goes on this one.
