Bugatti Chiron Profilée: Paris city hall hates photos taken on the Bir-Hakeim bridge

It seems that we in France cannot overemphasize our history and automotive heritage. After the publication of photos of a unique Bugatti Chiron Profilée parked on the Bir-Hakeim bridge in Paris, it seems that the city hall of the capital is very angry! As nice as the decor is, a Bugatti would have no business on a bike path…

To be precise, it’s not just any Bugatti “posing” on the Bir-Hakeim bridge in Paris. Indeed, this is the only Bugatti Chiron Profilée sold by RM Sotheby’s in the capital on February 1. However, the magnificent shots taken by our friend Kevin Van Campenhout do not please the mayor of Paris, but they do not like it. Proof with a tweet published by the first deputy mayor of Paris, Emmanuel Grégoire.

Anne Hidalgo was quick to retweet Emmanuel Grégoire’s publication, and others followed suit, notably Valérie Masson-Delmotte, who added, among other things: “If only we had better use of intelligence and creativity! »

True, it is not without provocation that since the arrival of Ann Hidalgo as mayor of Paris, the capital is more beautiful than the photos of the Bugatti Chiron Streamlined (or not before everything). great…

Anyway, back to the Bugatti Chiron Profiled sold yesterday by RM Sotheby’s for €9,792,500! Paying a possible fine of €135 is wide, isn’t it Emmanuel Grégoire?

The Bugatti Chiron Profiled is simply the last Chiron to go on sale with the historic W16 as its engine. Originally, a limited edition Bugatti Chiron Profilée was supposed to be launched at the request of Bugatti customers, but it never happened… Thus, 500 Chirons have already found their buyers. That’s why Bugatti decided to launch the unique Chiron Profilée development prototype, all testing stages of which have been approved according to the state of the art. As for the name “Profilée”, it echoes the Bugatti Type 46.

The Bugatti Chiron Profilée has an integrated rear spoiler, or spoiler, if the latter term can be used for the prestigious car manufacturer Bugatti, in an exclusive “Atlantic Silver” color. Indeed, some potential very wealthy buyers of the Chiron Pur Sport wanted a visually softer Pur Sport, hence the idea of ​​a limited-profile series that was never offered.

Among other developments integrated into this unique Bugatti Chiron Profiled is a revised front blade associated with a flat bottom that has been straightened compared to the Pur Sport. The rear diffuser of the Chiron Profilée also appears to have been slightly modified. However, as Bugatti’s press release says, the Chiron Profilée’s small spoiler, completely integrated into its body, makes it both exceptional and unique: “It is the only fixed wing in Bugatti’s modern history that is integrated directly into the body. »

This gives the Chiron Profilée a top speed performance of 380 km/h, compared to “only” 350 km/h (limited) for the Chiron Sport. As for the Bugatti Chiron Profilée’s W16 8.0-liter quadri-turbo engine, it has the same configuration as the Chiron Sport: 1,500 hp and 1,600 Nm.0 to 100 km/h in 2.3 seconds and 0 to 0 . It reaches 200 km/h in 5.5 seconds.

Finally, another great photo above, this time of the 100% electric Porsche Taycan on the dedicated car lane at Bir-Hakeim Bridge. Looking forward to Emmanuel Grégoire’s tweet!
