Following in the footsteps of the fabled Veyron 16.4, Bugatti unveiled the Chron at the Geneva Motor Show in March of 2016. Named after the celebrated Bugatti works racing driver Louis Chiron, the Chiron carried over the Veyron’s all-wheel drive, rear-mid-engine architecture, its approximate coachwork dimensions, and most importantly, the aluminum alloy 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine. However, its drivetrain was even further developed over the outgoing Veyron Super Sport, boasting larger two-stage turbochargers, larger catalytic converters, and a new titanium exhaust system. Power output was rated at an astounding 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque.
Taking things one step further, Bugatti announced an even more powerful and improved version of the Chrion at Geneva in 2018. Dubbed the Chiron Sport, this boasts approximately $275,000 worth of chassis improvements over the base model Chiron, including a dynamic handling package, more responsive and engaging steering, revised torque vectoring system, stiffer springs and anti-roll bars, quad exhaust tips, and better aerodynamics. These upgrades so significantly enhance the car’s cornering abilities that the Chiron Sport was able to run the Nardo Ring in Italy five seconds faster than the base-level Chiron, an impressive testament to the Sport model’s performance potential.
Concieved to celebrate the 110th anniversary of Bugatti’s founding, the 110 Ans Chiron was built in very limited numbers, with just 20 examples produced. All twenty cars were finished in matte Steel Blue paintwork with steel blue carbon fibre accents. The wheels are painted Nocturne matte black with French Racing Blue embelems, alongside matching French Racing Blue brake calipers, and a blue-painted number 16 is present on the grill, a feature which most other 110 Ans cars do not have. The French ‘tricolore’ adorns the car in several locations on the car, most notable undeath the rear spoiler, on the fuel filler cap, and on the wing mirrors. Inside, the theme continues and the interior is upholstered in two-tone Deep Blue and Bright French Racing Blue and Alcantara, and the tricolore appears again on both seats, the 12 o’clock mark on the steering wheel, and on the key fob. The car is also fitted Bugatti’s Sky View option. Priced at $62,000, this consists of two glass panels in the roof above the driver and passanger, affording more ambient light and headroom in the cabin.
Of the twenty Chrion Sport 110 Ans built, it is believed that just two examples reside in the United States, including the car offered here. This particular example was delivered new to its first and only owner in late 2019 and has lived in Southern California ever since. Rather than be hidden away in a large collection as is the fate with many of these cars, this example was used and enjoyed as it manufacturers intended and has been driven just 3,250 miles from new.
Since new, the Chiron has been looked after by Bugatti of Newport Beach and Bugatti of Beverly Hills, with its most recent annual service being carried out by Bugatti of Newport Beach just a few weeks ago. Importantly, the car’s next major service, which is due in December of 2022, has been prepaid by the consignor at a cost of approximately $35,000, encouraging further use and enjoyment for the next owner. It is accompanied by a handful of previous service records, a clean Carfax, an aluminium ‘Chiron’ storage box, car cover, owners manual, speed and valet keys with their presentation box, a USB flash drive, and a car cover.
What Bugatti has achieved with the Chiron is nothing short of remarkable, a car capable of world-beating speed and acceleration, coupled with all the comforts and amenities one would expect from a car built in 2019. This is a car which makes no compromises in its engineering to provide an unparalleled driving experience. With only twenty examples produced worldwide and two believed to reside in the U.S., the Chrion Sport 110 Ans is arguably the most desirable variant of Chrion as it incorporates the mechanical upgrades of the Chrion Sport alongside a tasteful cosmetic specification, celebrating an important milestone in the history of the company.
As with all exclusive Bugatti models, the Chiron Sports were hand selected orders from new to their VIP customers. The bespoke 110 Ans edition was no different and being even more significant, this offers those outside Bugatti’s inner circle a spectacular opportunity to acquire one of these significant cars. As the first Chrion Sport 110 Ans offered publically in the U.S., this opportunity should not be missed as these cars will remain highly sought after as one of Bugatti’s most crowning achievements.To view this car and others currently available, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/home/private-treaty-sales/.
