Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport ‘Grand Prix’ hyper sports car, whose configuration is inspired by the legendary racing driver Louis Chiron, is unveiled to the public at the 17th edition of Top Marques, which takes place from June 9 – 12 in Monaco under the high patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II.
In addition to the Chiron Pur Sport ‘Grand Prix’, a unique Chiron Sport ‘110 Ans BUGATTI’ edition finished in steel blue matte carbon and a 2010 Veyron Grand Sport in Italian red color and black Pur Sang split with a carmine red interior are also showcased.
One of the most successful racing drivers of the early 20th century, Louis Chiron won the French Grand Prix at Montlhéry in his Type 51 – an improved version of the legendary Type 35 – together with the brilliant Achille Varzi in 1931. The number 32 was resplendent in bold letters on their racing car and is so again on the bespoke Chiron Pur Sport hyper sports car.
To pay homage to the legendary Grand Prix racing Bugattis of the 1920s and 30s, two new exterior colors were created as well as a hand-painted EB pattern for the front aisles, which is also repeated on the interior door panels.
The ‘32’ and ‘Grand Prix’ motifs can be seen throughout the cabin, including a special center console inlay in black anodized aluminum, with a silver hand-painted inscription. The motifs extend to the door sills, headrests and entry lights.
The car was crafted by Bugatti ‘Sur Mesure’ which builds on the brand’s many years of expertise in body construction, painting, handcrafted interiors and embroidery. It was introduced to meet the growing customer demand for individualized designs, materials and surface finishes.
