French supercar maker Bugatti is celebrating its 110th anniversary by launching a limited edition version of its Chiron Sport model.

Called the Chiron Sport ‘110 ans Bugatti’, the limited edition is billed as a more capable version of the Chiron that was unveiled last year at the Geneva Motor show

The special edition Chiron Sport comes with unique design and colour changes inside and out, with a subtle two-tone colour scheme combining a matt ‘Steel Blue’ paint job on the rear and Steel Blue Carbon for the exposed carbon fibre at the front.

The French tricolor “Le Bleu-Blanc-Rouge”, with its colours of blue, white and red, appear on the movable rear wing, the door mirrors and aluminium filler caps on both sides. Matt black wheels covering blue brake calipers complete the special touches on the outside.

On the inside, the cabin features the same theme and has tricolor stripes on the headrests and backrests of the two-tone blue leather and Alcantara seats. It also has the Sky View glass panel roof, which was recently added to the options list, as standard equipment.

The limited edition model is mechanically identical to the regular Chiron Sport, and is powered by the same quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine that produces 1,479-horsepower. The hypercar can go from zero to 62mph in just 2.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 261mph.

Only 20 examples of the Bugatti Chiron Sport ‘110 ans Bugatti’ will be built, with pricing details yet to be announced.

In 1909 Italian industrial designer Ettore Bugatti unveiled his first ever automobile, the Type 10, giving birth to the iconic car brand in the city of Molsheim in north-eastern France.
