You’ve probably seen the one-off $13-million Bugatti La Voiture Noire, which was inspired by Jean Bugatti’s legendary 1930s-era 57SC Atlantic, and due to the great feedback, the automaker decided to produce 20 special edition units, priced from $3.3 million each. Available in Noire Élégance and the Noire Sportive, the former has an exposed carbon-fiber body, while the latter sports a matte-black finish.

The Bugatti Chiron is best known for its speed and looks, thanks to a quad-turbocharged 8.0L W16 engine generating 1,479 hp at 6,700 rpm and 1,180 lb⋅ft of torque starting from 2,000 to 6,000 rpm. However, it was made more for show than actual racing or going off-road for that matter. If money is no object and you want a hypercar that is not only the fastest on the road, but unique-looking to boot, this 6-wheels Chiron just might do the trick.
The original Bugatti Type 35 was the most successful of the automaker’s racing models, winning over 1,000 races in its time. It won the Grand Prix World Championship in 1926 after winning 351 races and setting 47 records in the two prior years. At its peak, Type 35s averaged 14 race wins per week. In 1926 Ettore Bugatti built a half-scale Type 35 for his son Roland, and it was so popular that they produced 500 of them between 1927 and 1936. Now, to celebrate the company’s 110th anniversary, they’re reviving the half-scale model, but with an electric twist at 3/4 scale. Read more for additional pictures and information.
We showed you the video of a prototype Chiron breaking the 300+ mph barrier last week, now Bugatti announced that it will be releasing a production version that is limited to just 30-units worldwide. At $3.9-million, the production model looks near identical to the record-breaking vehicle, complete with a carbon fiber exterior and bright orange accents. Out back, there’s an extended rear decklid, a bespoke engine cover and vertically-stacked quad exhausts. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
Not just any Chrion, Bugatti modified a Chiron Sport and took it to Germany’s Ehra-Lessien to set a new speed record. Thankfully, everything went as planned, and they managed to hit a staggering 304.773 mph, verified by Germany’s Technical Inspection Association (TÜV), which makes it official. To make this happen, Bugatti teamed with Dallara and tire manufacturer Michelin for the past six months. Read more for the video and additional information.
At $9-million and limited to just 10-units worldwide, the Bugatti Centodieci (110 in Italian) pays tribute to the automaker’s 90s supercar, the EB110, which was built for Ettore Bugatti’s 110th birthday in 1991. Unlike the Chiron, the Centodieci’s Bugatti horseshoe is smaller and it features three-section air intakes inspired by the EB110 as well as five diamond-shaped air inlets that cool the 8.0-liter W16 engine.

The Bugatti EB 110 Super Sport Hommage “Centodieci” has leaked ahead of Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and it looks stunning. Based on the Chiron, the exterior features a smaller horseshoe grille, similar to the one found on the original EB110, air intakes behind the side windows, thin LED taillights out back, and unique wheels inspired by its predecessor.

At a staggering $4,781,360, this used Mansory Centuria just might be the strangest (or coolest) looking Bugatti Chiron that we’ve seen yet. Featuring a carbon rear diffuser, wing, custom wheels, side skirts, front wheel arch louvers, headlight surrounds, and the hood. Unfortunately, the roof scoop is just purely for aesthetics purposes, and not used to cool its monstrous 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine.

The Bugatti Chiron, a mid-engine two-seater sports car developed and manufactured in Molsheim, France, is the successor to the Bugatti Veyron and first shown at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1, 2016. It’s named after the Monegasque driver Louis Chiron and also shares the name with the 1999 Bugatti 18/3 Chiron concept car.
