RARE CAR GEM |

Christophe Piochon, President of Bugatti Automobiles: “Given our customers’ demand for a less radical version of the Chiron Pur Sport, we started designing and developing the Chiron Profilée in autumn 2020. When the pre-series prototype was launched. production line, all planned production sites for 500 Chiron copies were already reserved. However, we knew what we had created was too good to keep secret. It is, in every sense of the word, a very unique car in the history of Bugatti, a true collector’s item, and we wanted to offer all Bugatti lovers the chance to become the proud owner of this model. That’s why we decided to partner with RM Sotheby’s to put it up for auction. »

It’s rare to see manufacturers put so much time and effort into producing a car that can only be produced in one copy. However, like any other Bugatti, the Profiled has undergone extensive development and passed all the tests and successfully passed them. It has met all of Bugatti’s quality standards, regardless of whether it applies to each of its models, and has received individual type approval for Europe.

The profile offers a special design with a large fixed wing at the back that performs two important functions. First, the wing provides stability and control of the car up to 380 km/h by increasing downforce on the rear axle, and second, it uses negative pressure to suck hot air from the engine. section through two internal channels located in the carbon high-temperature wing. Air flows both over the top of the wing to create downforce and under the wing to draw air from the engine compartment.

Frank Heil, Deputy Design Director, Bugatti Automobiles: “Taking into account our customers’ demand, we have incorporated a fixed spoiler – wide yet elegant – that is both aerodynamically and thermodynamically optimized to offer unparalleled performance while bringing elegance and timelessness to the car’s design. .This fin replaces the fixed fin with the hydraulic positioning of the Chiron or the popular Pur Sport.The name “Profilée” is inspired by the Bugatti Type 46, one of Jean Bugatti’s first creations, which also has an elegantly upturned rear.

At the front, this unique hyper sports car is equipped with enlarged air intakes and a horseshoe grille to channel more cooling air to the radiators. A new front splitter works in tandem with the aero body to further increase downforce and maximize airflow. As with all Bugattis, controlling airflow to achieve such extraordinary performance – it affects cooling, drag reduction and downforce. It is a hallmark of modern Bugattis even today.

Profiled takes its purity from Pur Sport: it is likewise designed for lateral grip and ultimate acceleration. It has the same 1,500 horsepower of the W16 engine, with gear ratios 15% shorter than the Chiron Sport. Profiled accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.3 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 5.5 seconds. It reaches a top speed of 380 km/h compared to 350 km/h for the Chiron Pur Sport.

Chassis tweaks include altered front and rear wheel camber angles, as well as stiffer springs that shift some of the weight to the front of the car. These are 10% stiffer than the Chiron Sport, while the rear axle carries 50% more negative camber, providing better cornering grip without sacrificing ride comfort. Profiled combines the best of Pur Sport in an elegant design.

The profile has a body color “Atlantic Silver” specially developed for this car. No other Chiron is configured in this shade. The lower part of the car is covered in visible carbon fiber in “Royal Blue Carbon”, which is already available in the Bugatti color chart. The wheels are also unique, specially designed, manufactured and tested for the profile, and feature a color called “Le Patron” created to match the carbon that adorns the lower half of the body. Polished aluminum elements bring out the famous Bugatti horseshoe grille.

Hand-assembled in the Molsheim workshop, the Profil’s cabin is based on the interior design of Bugatti’s customer favorite, the Chiron. Made from high-quality materials such as leather, carbon or solid aluminum, each component is the result of long hours of handwork to achieve perfection. The design itself should be minimalist, reducing each component to its simplest and most beautiful form.

The Profiled is the first Chiron to feature woven leather on the dashboard, door panels and center console. In total, more than 2,500 meters of leather strips were needed to create this intricate image. La Profilée is equipped with comfortable seats in “Gris Rafale” and “Deep Blue” leather with a quilt pattern called “Air Parade”. The black anodized frame mounted on the center console also bears the ‘Profile’ signature, the finishing touch to this completely unique creation.

The Bugatti Chiron Profilée will be auctioned at RM Sotheby’s on the 1ster February 2023. A percentage of sales will be donated to charity.
