Bugatti Chiron Sport breaks cover at Geneva

Interestingly, there's no engine performance increases to talk about here; the Chiron Sport is virtually unchanged when it comes to the powertrain or tuning - instead, it's the handling of the auto that's been revised. To distinguish the new model from the old, there is a new wheel design and four-pipe exhaust deflector.

First deliveries of the Chiron Sport are planned for the end of the year.

At the heart of the Bugatti Chiron Sport is the same 8.0-litre W16 quad turbocharged engine as seen on the "regular" Chiron.

Dalton Nixon added 10 points with 6 rebounds and 4 assists to round out the scoring in double figures for BYU in the win. Gonzaga (30-4), the regular-season champion, locked into a defensive battle with BYU (24-10) for most of the first half.

Back in 2016, Bugatti introduced the all-new Chiron hypercar as the Veyron's successor.

"The Chiron Sport has become perceptibly more nimble and its new agility, especially in tight corners makes for a much more emotional experience for the driver on winding roads and handling circuits", said Bugatti Automobiles president Stephan Winkelmann in a statement. The rear differential is revised, now set-up for a dynamic torque vectoring system to help manage the 1,479 hp.

The auto is also a whopping 18 kg lighter than a regular Chiron too, with many components now being made of carbon-fibre. The wipers have also been redesigned to do away with the need for an articulated joint, saving weight and making them more aerodynamic. Extensive use of carbon fiber can be found on the vehicle as well as having new lightweight wheels and intercooler cover.

As mentioned, he came perilously close to a win in the seventh and for the most part was outboxing Wilder comfortably. I hope he goes around once more to give another top heavyweight a decent fight, and make no mistake he can win.

The Sport model shaves down its weight by using even more carbon fiber - the Chiron already uses an enormous amount of the lightweight, but very expensive, material. Bugatti reckons that its latest creation is 5 seconds a lap faster around the famed Nardo test track than the standard model.

Having this extra speed is not worthwhile unless you let other Chiron owners know you're in a superior auto, though, and the Sport comes with a selection of visual enhancements to mark it out. That, Bugatti claims makes it 77 per cent lighter (1.4kg) than the one on the regular Chiron.

The Bugatti Chiron Sport has been developed for those that want a significant handling improvement in their Chiron. The Geneva showcar is finished in a combination of black and red but customers can have it in different colour combinations as well including the interior.
