Bugatti has unveiled what could be the final version of the iconic Bugatti Chiron. The Bugatti Profilée a one-of-a-kind member of the Chiron line-up envisioned as a less radical interpretation of the Pur Sport.
It has larger horseshoe grilles and air intakes up front than the “entry-level” Chiron in order to provide the radiators with more air. A revised splitter that increases downforce at the front axle further optimizes airflow. The Chiron Profilée replaces the humongous rear wing with a much more modest aero element.
The one-of-a-kind hypercar was painted by Bugatti in the special Argent Atlantique colour with exposed carbon fibre and a lower body tint of Bleu Royal Carbon.
With 15 percent shorter gearbox ratios than the Chiron Sport, the Bugatti Profilée is powered by the same 1,500 PS version of the Bugatti W16 engine. The Profilée can reach 200 kmph in 5.5 seconds after accelerating from 0 to 100 kmph in 2.3 seconds. Its maximum speed is 380 kmph.
Mechanically, the rear axle has 50 percent more negative chamber than the Pur Sport, and the suspension springs are 10 percent stronger than those of the Pur Sport.
After employing more than 2,500 meters of leather strips, the opulent interior is the first in a Chiron to feature a woven leather finish. The seats have “air parade” quilting and are covered with Gris Rafale and Deep Blue leather. A black anodized frame inlay was added by Bugatti to the centre console to highlight the Profilée writing.
On February 1, 2023, RM Sotheby’s will auction the vehicle, and according to Bugatti, a portion of the revenues will be donated to a charitable organization.
