No, this is not another iteration of the Bugatti Chiron, but a one-off commission “from a Bugatti collector with a deep appreciation for Bugatti history”. If you’re attending the 2023 Monterey Car Week, you can probably catch a glimpse of this ‘Golden Era’ as it’ll be handed over to its owner there.
As you can probably tell, the exterior of the car has a two-tone gradient finish of ‘Doré’ (a shade of Gold) at the back—followed by ‘Nocturne Black’ towards the front. But the idea of this one-off is to somehow showcase the brand’s history, more specifically, the brand’s iconic nameplates. And so, the design team proposed a concept featuring 45 sketches of the brand’s icons that would be hand-drawn directly onto the car itself, and apparently, the owner immediately fell in love with the idea.
On the passenger side, there are 26 hand-drawn sketches that include icons such as the Type 41 Royale and the Type 57 SC Atlantic. On the driver’s side, there are 19 sketches that portray the rebirth of the brand with models including the EB110, the Veyron and the Chiron. And of course, you can’t miss the heart of a modern Bugatti, right? A simple representation of the 3,712 individual components that come together to create the legendary W16 engine rightfully takes its place as a part of the masterpiece.
A similar theme has been carried over to the cockpit with sketches on the door cards. In all, creating this one-off—according to the company—took more than 400 hours of labor.
