Rare chance: Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport will be auctioned

The Bugatti Chiron is officially sold out. Not all 500 planned copies have been delivered yet, but simply going to the dealer and ordering a new Chiron – whether Sport, Pur Sport or Super Sport – is no longer possible. This offer is all the more interesting: On the US auction site, a 1500 hp strong Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport auctioned. The price? Anything but a bargain!

In Germany, the basic new price of the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, which was limited to 60 units, was 3.57 million euros. In the USA, customers still had to transfer at least 3.69 million US dollars to Molsheim (France) if they wanted to call a Chiron Pur Sport their own. The first and only owner of this specimen in the exterior colors “Lake Blue” and “Bugatti Light Blue Sport” also ordered a few extras, some of which were expensive.

Spectacular: Instead of the extendable wing of the normal Chiron, an XXL wing is enthroned here that cannot be overlooked.

A look at the “window sticker” popular in the US reveals that blue brake calipers, for example, cost an extra $6200 (€5800), while EB logos on the headrests cost $3100 (€2900) and blue seat belts cost 2500 US dollars (2340 euros) were available.

The tailpipes from the 3D printer in black are slightly more expensive at 15,000 US dollars (14,000 euros). The “Pur Sport Interior Package” for 60,000 US dollars (56,000 euros) and the glass roof called “Sky view” which costs 62,000 US dollars (58,000 euros) more than a brand new VW Golf R get really tough.

Extras worth over 160,000 euros

The bottom line is that the former new price added up to 3,871,500 US dollars or the equivalent of around 3,623,000 euros – even though the really expensive options such as the visible carbon finish were not ordered. The two different shades of blue go well with the rather understated interior in black leather/Alcantara with blue accents – overall a classic spec.

Noble: black cockpit with blue accents. Only the Chiron Pur Sport has the pattern in the door panels.

Incidentally, anyone who thinks that the Pur Sport is just a Chiron with new rims and big wing is completely wrong! The changes to the Pur Sport are so extensive that it could almost pass as a completely new car. Chassis, engine, transmission and design have been extensively optimized. The press release for the Pur Sport states: “It is the most uncompromising and at the same time most agile Bugatti of modern times.”

Pur Sport is 50 kilos lighter than the Chiron

Overall, Bugatti was able to save 50 kilos of weight. Doesn’t sound like much for a car that still weighs a whopping 1980 kilos, but the cost of the savings is enormous. The extra-soft semi-slicks are brand new and specially designed for pure sport Michelin Sport Cup 2R developed. To go with this, Bugatti has readjusted the chassis set-up: the front springs are 65 percent and the rear springs 33 percent harder.

Carbon stabilizers are designed to minimize body roll, while a 2.5 degree negative camber is designed to ensure even better cornering performance. At the same time, the combination of tires and extreme camber reduces the top speed to “only” 350 km/h, making the Pur Sport the slowest of all Chirons.

Light: The 20/21-inch magnesium wheels save a total of 16 kilos of unsprung weight.

But Bugatti was still not satisfied with the weight savings, the revision of the chassis and completely new tires, and so the monumental W16 engine and the transmission were also optimized and specially adapted to the Chiron Pur Sport’s area of ​​application. True, the nominal power remained at 1500 hp and 1600 Nm are the same on paper, but the maximum speed has been increased from 6700 rpm to 6900 rpm.

At the same time, the transmission has been reclassified and the ratio shortened by 15 percent, which means that the elasticity values ​​are said to be 40 percent higher than those of the Chiron. In numbers, this means that the Pur Sport accelerates in sixth gear from 60 to 120 km/h almost two seconds faster than the Chiron.

The Bugatti has only 771 kilometers on the clock

It is questionable whether the first owner of this Chiron Pur Sport ever used the full power, because the speedometer shows just 479 miles, which corresponds to about 771 kilometers. However, since every Bugatti is subjected to numerous tests on the test bench and on the road before delivery and the mileage is not zeroed afterwards, most models are delivered with 300 to 600 kilometers on them. The owner should therefore not have driven his Chiron Pur Sport much.

Classic: the first owner opted for the typical Bugatti “duo split” in two different shades of blue.

It is therefore not surprising that the Pur Sport is in top condition. You won’t find any signs of wear or damage here, and of course the hypercar is accident-free and repaint-free. The Bugatti is in new condition. The sales price includes both the original aluminum box – which contains the car cover, a charger and license plate holder made of carbon – and the noble carbon case, which contains the spare key, a USB stick and a book.

The highest bid is already higher than the new price

The auction is still running for a few days, but the current highest bid is already 3.9 million US dollars or the equivalent of 3.65 million euros – and thus just above the original price. But there is definitely something going on before the end of the auction. That’s the price customers have to pay if they want to own an (almost) new Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport today. And: Opportunities like this don’t come along very often, as such vehicles usually change hands secretly – if at all.
