The CHIRON Profilée – originally planned to be positioned between the CHIRON Sport and CHIRON Pur Sport – never made it into production. All 500 slots reserved for the CHIRON had been sold before its development was completed. Too beautiful to be forgotten, BUGATTI decided to finalize the Profilée’s development and offer this automotivesolitaire at auction to give all BUGATTI owners – and those who want to become one before the W16 era ends – the same fair chance to acquire it.
The CHIRON Profilée is the optimum combination of agility, performance and elegance. One single car, never to be repeated. The last brand-new BUGATTI with a W16 engine offered from Molsheim.
This automotivesolitaire possesses a bespoke shape with a sweeping tail and has been given all-new steering and suspension settings for more responsive handling. The transmission is revised, with the gear ratios shortened. The rev limit of the W16 engine has increased by 200 rpm to a 6,900 rpm, contributing to a top speed of 380 km/h and an acceleration capable of reaching 100 km/h in 2.3 seconds: 200 km/h in 5.5 seconds: and 300 km/h in a near-incomprehensible 12.4 seconds.
The BUGATTICHIRON Profilée will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s on 1 February 2023.
