Bugatti just pulled the covers off yet another bespoke, limited-edition Chiron. And, no, we’re not tired of them, either. Called the Chiron Pur Sport, Bugatti plans to build 60 of them starting in the second half of 2020. Price of entry is 3,000,000 euros before VAT (value added tax) or about $3,350,000 at today’s conversion rates.
What you get for your money is a Chiron carrying 110 fewer pounds thanks to several different lightweighting techniques, including 3D-printed, thin-walled titanium exhaust pipes, newly designed magnesium wheels and titanium brake pad bases. That’s in addition to a more minimalist interior and a fixed, not hydraulic operating, rear wing.
In addition to the diet, engineers stiffened the chassis considerably, using 65% stiffer front springs and 35% stiffer rear springs, to start. They also changed the camber of the suspension alignment, subtracting 2.5 degrees from the standard Chiron setup for improved agility. Additionally, engineers added front and rear carbon-fiber stability bars.
But perhaps the single most notable improvement in lateral grip will come from a newly developed tire from Michelin. Called the Bugatti Cup 2 R tire, the front axles will see 285/30R-20s and the rears a massive 355/25R-21 tire. That’s 14 inches wide per side, which nudges toward Formula 1 widths in back. Logically enough, Bugatti claims a 10% improvement in roadholding.
Powering the Pur Sport is the same W16 mega-motor found in the Chiron—with 1,500 metric hp (1,478 SAE hp) and 1,180 lb-ft of torque—though maximum engine speed does increase by 200 rpm to 6,900. Bugatti revised the gear ratios of the seven-speed transmission to keep the ratios closer to each other and keep the driver nearer to the power peak of the engine at all times. This does reduce top speed, but that’s still well above 200 mph, so, honestly, who cares.
Visually, the Pur Sport stands out with its lighter, more aero driven wheels, the massive 6-foot-3-inch-long rear wing and a wider than standard horseshoe grille. Because the car screams athleticism, you also see larger front air intakes and splitters. Paint is different as well, with the bottom third of car left as exposed carbon fiber.
Inside, you see faux suede-wrapped surfaces, laser-cut patterns on the trim and contrasting fabrics. There’s also a generally metallic look using aluminum and titanium. The steering wheel is fat-rimmed, D-shaped and all business.

Pur Sport exudes extreme from every carbon-fiber pore. Like a bottomless fountain of Red Bull poured into a diamond-encrusted gold chalice. If the Chiron seems a little plain Jane for your tastes, Bugatti has you covered.
