Bugatti Unveils New Limited Edition Exposed Carbon Fibre Chiron Noire
The Noire Sportive and Noire Élégance are limited to just 20 units each are both dripping in the black stuff and draw influence from the company’s one-off “La Voiture Noire” the black car created by Jean Bugatti and built between 1936 and 1938. The black car disappeared at the beginning of the Second World War. If it were ever to be found, it would probably be the most expensive car in the world.
The Chiron Noire Élégance sports an exposed carbon fibre body with a new grill design that houses a solid silver and black Bugatti emblem. New brake callipers finished in black are installed behind Caractère wheels. Other exterior accentuations such as the rear-view mirror and engine cover are finished in black carbon and polished aluminium. The “Noire” inscription adorns the side panels in front of the rear wheel and the underside of the rear wing.
The interior of the Noire Élégance is fitted out with a black finish with aluminium and silk-matte detailing along with an additional carbon fibre badge inset into the centre armrest.
In the “Chiron Noire Sportive”, Bugatti covers the exposed carbon fibre with a matt black finish. The exterior trim elements, the C-shaped Bugatti signature line, the wheels, front spoiler and radiator grille are all matt black. The four visible tailpipes of the titanium exhaust system are likewise finished in black, as are parts of the engine cover. The interior is even more dominated by black than in the “Chiron Noire Élégance”. The embroidered “Noire” inscriptions on the inlays of the centre console and the headrest are black, as are the aluminium trim parts in the interior. Meanwhile the inner C-line, switches, push-buttons and rotary knobs on the dashboard, steering wheel, centre console and door handles in matt black underline the car’s exclusive, sporty character.
The new cars are powered by Bugatti’s 8.0-litre 16-cylinder engine with 1,500 hp and 1,600 Newton metres of torque continues to serve as the power unit. The edition model, limited to 20 vehicles, will start shipping in Q2 of 2020 and prices will start at 3 million euros.
