Few would argue with the fact that a Bugatti Chiron can be improved in any which way. But the Chiron Pur Sport adds a wonderful twist to the tale in form of minute changes which alters its driving experience.

The Chiron had big shoes to fill with being the successor to the Veyron. But it has proved that is more than just a one-trick pony with a more involving driving experience layered with an insatiable thirst for speed.

The Chiron Pur Sport turns up the wick with a dynamic outlook including more downforce and reducing its weight. It is still a hyper GT with a penchant for swallowing entire sections of the Autobahn in one gulp. But now, the new version claims to deliver crisper handling too. The focus has been on the agility with top speed being kept at the backburner – for awhile.

More aerodynamics were being sought after along with reducing the ride height plus increasing the corner carving potential. There is a larger diffuser and a fixed rear spoiler while the traditional horseshoe panel is now bigger along with enlarged air inlets.

Even the temperature-resistant exhaust tailpipe is made of 3D-printed titanium. Wheels and tyres are the biggest factors in terms of achieving the ludicrous top-speeds. But for the Chiron Pur Sport, they had a new agenda in being lighter.

The new Aero wheel design is wrapped around bespoke Bugatti Sport Cup 2 R tyre in 285/30 R20 dimensions at the front and 355/25 R21 at the rear. Bugatti also reduced even more weight for a lighter track-like driving experience while firming up the springs.

You get the sense that it is less of a GT and more in-tuned for a visceral experience when pushing it around corners. More evidence to that is the addition of the Sport + drive mode. That reduces the electronic nannying and lets the driver in gratuitous drifts.

Owners can personalize their cars

The closer gear ratios would be fun in order to exploit the full potential of the mad 8.0 litre W16 engine delivering 1,500 PS and 1,600 newton metres. Though we do not think owners could use the entire power on the road and hence, the more agile driving experience on the track makes the Pur Sport a better choice in terms of a wider set of traits.

Like any Bugatti, owners can personalize their cars to a greater degree. But the ‘Sur Mesure division’ takes that philosophy to a new level with bespoke coach building, paint finishes, interiors and even the exterior design. The car seen here is the first such customer car which is christened with the number ’32’. That’s a number deeply etched within Bugatti folklore since Louis Chiron was one of Bugatti’s most legendary racing drivers. He drove a Bugatti Type 51 emblazoned with the number ‘32’.

The Bugatti Sur Mesure team also made a new ‘fading EB’ painted scheme, which is applied by hand. It also comes with a multi-layer stitched ‘EB’ motif on the door panels. The interior also gets ‘32’ and ‘Grand Prix’ motifs with a silver hand-painted inscription.

The motifs then spill over to the door sills, headrests and entry lights. Compared to the ‘regular’ Chiron if such a thing exists, the Pur Sport has a serious cabin atmosphere with less visible extravagance. Yet the level of quality needs to be seen to be believed in. Like the Chiron, it also shuns needless technologies and puts the focus on the driving part.

Amongst all of this, its $3.6-million price tag is all but a meaningless number since for owners, it does not really matter as Bugatti is beyond rational realms. The Pur Sport is a collector’s car that would be marked as the glorious end for the gasoline-powered hypercar.
