After the two year launch of the chiron, Bugatti launched a new variant, The Chiron Sport. On the new sport only the chasis features a few major upgrades. The drivetrain and the engine remains in stock form, so the performance is the same.
The french firm developed a new dynamic handling package that includes a 10% stiffer suspension. The new suspension setup and the revised steering come into effect when the new "Handling" mode is activated. But upgrades don’t stop here. The rear-axle differential has been optimized too and the car now features a Dynamic Torque Vectoring function that distributes torque individually to the wheels on each side. This update improves the steering behavior and agility of the vehicle, especially in tight curves.
The Chiron Sport is also 18kg lighter than the standard model thanks to the new wheels, the carbon-fiber wipers, stabilizer bar, and intercooler cover, and the lighter rear window. It makes a difference on the race track, where the Chiron Sport corners significantly faster. Bugatti says that lap times on the Nardo circuit have improved by five seconds compared to the regular Chiron.
