The Pur Sport is the sportiest iteration of the Bugatti Chiron that we’ve seen so far. While the Divo certainly looks like a race car, the modifications to the chassis, aero and powertrain make the Pur Sport a proper track weapon.
However, the Chiron Pur Sport might just be the start and we could see a proper Bugatti track car in the future. At the moment, it’s pure conjecture based on hearsay.
It doesn’t seem like a far fetched idea though. If you look at the derivatives of the Chiron that have been launched in the past couple of years, the brand has slowly transitioned from a hyper grand tourer to a hyper sports car. It all started with the Chiron Sport and the Divo in 2018. 2019 was the year of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ and this year, we got the Pur Sport.
A purely track-focused Bugatti would be a logical step up from the low drag Super Sport 300+ and the Pur Sport with its high downforce and lateral grip. A hypercar for the race track would definitely capture the attention of millionaires.
We envision a car similar to the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo Concept, but even more extreme. The high downforce package could be complemented by the chassis improvements that were introduced on the Pur Sport. The 8.0-liter W16 engine with 1600 hp from the Super Sport 300+ would be just perfect for the job. Among other exclusive track day supercars like the Ferrari FXXK and Lamborghini’s upcoming V12 track car, this Bugatti should be right at the top in terms of performance.
