It’ll be on display at the Geneva Motor Show.
Bugatti debuted the Chiron hypercar, the successor to its Veyron, at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Four years later, Bugatti has produced its 250th Chiron – halfway through the car’s entire production run – and it’ll be on display at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. This signals the second half of Chiron Production. The 250th Chiron is a Chiron Sport Edition Noire Sportive, which Bugatti introduced late last year.
The Edition Noire Sportive adds a ton of black enhancements to the Chiron. A matte black finish covers the exposed carbon fibre. Matte black also covers the front spoiler, radiator grille, wheels, and Bugatti’s signature C-shaped design line. Even the four tailpipes of the car’s titanium exhaust feature a black finish along with parts of the engine cover. Inside, it’s equally dark with black and matte black aluminium trim interior parts, black seats, switchgear, and more.
Bugatti has plans:
- Bugatti Chiron R allegedly coming to Geneva with fixed wing
- The Roaring Twenties: Bugatti's W16 to live on through the 2020s
The 250th Chiron Sport Edition Noire Sportive is the halfway point of Chiron production. Fewer than 100 Chirons are still for sale with 150 of the remaining hypercars already bought by customers. “Reaching this mark in such a short amount of time is an amazing accomplishment that fills me with pride,” says Bugatti boss Stephan Winkelmann. “I am looking forward to the second half of the production cycle.”
The Chiron Sport Edition Noire Sportive’s evocative design does turn heads; however, the car’s powertrain is equally impressive. Powering the Chiron is a quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine that’s capable of producing up to 1,600 bhp (1,193 kilowatts) and 1,180 pound-feet (1,600 Newton-metres) of torque. With a starting price of £2.5 million, and a limited production run of just 20 examples of the Edition Noire set for production, the 205th Chiron is truly special.
Bugatti will show the 250th Chiron at its stand at the Geneva show set for early next month. It may not be the only Bugatti in attendance, either. Invited guests and clients will have the opportunity to admire the car, too.
