Every Bugatti Chiron is distinctive, with each hypercar’s owner’s choiceIn terms of paint color, interior layout, trim options, and more. But some Chirons are more special than others, and this is where Come. His most recent creations are A And the Featuring the same type of hand-painted Vagues de Lumière livers, each of which took five weeks to complete. They do not believe.
Before I dive into these cool Chirons, a little context for the crazy Zebra-like paintwork. In 2011 Bugatti released the one-off Veyron L’Or Blanc, which was a two-tone blue and white inspired by the way reflections naturally fall on the bodywork. It was an amazing thing to look at, especially since the lines are a bit asymmetric; L’Or Blanc also features interior inlays and exterior accents made of real porcelain.
The process of creating Vagues de Lumière (waves of light) is intense. First, the craftsmen create two-dimensional figures that will form the lines, which are applied to the body as a tape to mask what needs to be drawn very precisely. The touches are then painted by hand, using multiple layers to give the cladding a deep sheen that mimics the reflection of light. Finally, layers of transparent paint are applied. It’s a process reminiscent of last year’s ‘Ladybug’ Divo, which was so complex that Bugatti almost gave up.
This isn’t the first time Bugatti has made cars inspired by L’Or Blanc either: The unique Chiron ‘Zebra’ with glossy teal paint and dark gray stripes was created in 2019, and there’s a Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse with L’Or Blanc outline In red and black.
of the two ChironsIt’s definitely the loudest, with California blue being used as the base paint and Arancia Mira, a bright orange sourced from Lamborghini, used as the accent color. Reflection lines extend to the Super Sport’s oval ventilation pattern on the front fenders, which looks very cool. The Arancia Mira is also used on the (frankly ugly) 5-spoke wheels, the number 38 in the horseshoe grille and the lettering in the engine compartment. Bright orange is also used in the interior, and the Super Sport .
But the Pur Sport specs are really impressive. Instead of paint, its body is finished with exposed carbon fiber in a navy blue, an option that costs more than $300,000 on its own. The Vagues de Lumière stripes are Nocturne black paint, and they really do look like reflections at first. The lines are applied in their unique style to this Pur Sport, highlighting its most understated design. French flags are found on the wing’s end panels, and the 9’s in the grille, wing accents, and center caps are painted French Blue. The interior of the Pur Sport is covered in Beluga Black leather and French Racing Blue, and it has Sky View as well.
Bugatti announced in January that the carSOLD OUT, WITH SUPER SPORT FINAL AND They’ll be built by the end of 2022. We’re sure to see more wild Sur Mesure creations come out of those final cars, but Bugatti will have plenty of opportunities for showrunner creations after that. Going into production later this year, delivery of the fully-sold out track-only Bolide will begin in 2024.
But the most exciting will be the first model it will come fromwhich will certainly be electrified and more luxurious and customizable than any Bugatti before it.
