Bugatti Chiron gets Noire special editions limited to 20 units
More limited editions of the Bugatti Chiron are coming our way. There's two of them this time, both taking influence from the one-off La Voiture Noire re-interpretation that the brand revealed at Geneva the past year. Like the La Voiture Noire, these special editions of the Chiron hark back to the obscure Type 57 SC Atlantic that was owned by Jean Bugatti and was lost during World War II. This was one of only four built between 1936 and 1938. In a similar vein, the Chiron Noire editions will be limited to 20 units.
The Chiron Noire Sportive has a sportier focus while the Chiron Noire Élégance is more attuned to show off the elegance of the design. The Noire Sportive comes with an exposed carbon fibre bodyshell with a matt black finish. This treatment also extends to the C-shaped Bugatti signature design element, the wheels, front spoiler and radiator grille. Also finished in black are the tailpipes and parts of the engine cover. This exaggerated black theme continues on the inside as well, the inner C-line, switches, push-buttons and rotary knobs on the dashboard, steering wheel, centre console and door handles are all finished in matte black. Highlights like the Noire inlays in the centre console and headrest and the aluminium trim parts inside too get a black treatment.
The Chiron Noire Élégance gets more contrasting elements with a new grille, the Bugatti logo made of silver and finished with black enamel. Also, the C-shaped body element is made of metal and finished in aluminium, along with the new wheels. The rear-view mirror and engine cover are finished in black carbon and polished aluminium. There are 'Noire' inscriptions on the side panels in front of the rear wheel and the underside of the rear wing. On the inside, the inner C motif is made of aluminium with a silk-matt finish, the "Noire" inscription appears on the door sills and on the outside of the centre console, as well as being sewn into the headrests. Lastly, a new carbon badge is inlaid into the centre armrest with each example being numbered.
These versions remain mechanically unchanged from the standard Chiron and continue to be powered by the 8.0-litre W16 quad-turbo motor with 1500PS and 1,600 Nm. Prices start at EUR 3 million or Rs 23 crores. The quicker Chiron Sport can also be had with the design packages for an additional EUR 100,000 or Rs 79 lakh.
