Bugatti may a one-model brand but the Chiron having so many models that it’s become difficult to keep track of them all.
The new Pur Sport, marketed as the driver’s Chiron, added to the long list of special edition Chirons.
By improving the aerodynamics and suspension of the W16-powered hypercar. Minimizing weight and making power available more readily. The engineers improved stability and made the Chiron more fun to drive in the curves.
The engine retains the same 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16, which produces 1,500 PS (1,103 kW/1,479 HP) as you can expect. The redline has however pushed 200 rpm higher than on the “standard” Chiron, now reaching 6,900 rpm. That’s because a recalibrated automatic transmission now mates to the historic engine.
Changes to the gearbox also include tighter gear ratios of 15 percent which have a positive effect on power delivery and engine reaction. Not that the Chiron necessarily needed. Compared to the standard setup. The result is 40 percent stronger elasticity values.
Significant improvements in the chassis. Including 65 percent steeper front springs, 33 percent steeper rear springs. And performance-oriented adjustable damping. The Chiron Pur Sport rides on 35 lbs (16 kg) lightweight Aero wheels. So, designed to enhance aerodynamics and brake ventilation.
Bugatti also opted for new titanium brake pad base panels and lightweight discs in the braking section. Which together with the lighter alloys make the Chiron Pur Sport 42 lbs (19 kg) lighter than a regular model.
Bugatti has made changes to the design of the Chiron. With the Pur Sport embracing an aerodynamically designed front fascia with wider holes. A broader horseshoe grid, and a new splitter. All made of carbon fiber.
The rear end also has improvements including a 74.8-inch (1.9-meter) long spoiler which is said to produce. Significant downforce numbers. The exhaust pipes constructed from 3D-printed titanium are also new and Bugatti says they are extremely lightweight and high temperature tolerant.
