Bugatti have released a special edition version of the Bugatti Chiron named the Bugatti Chiron Sport "110 ans Bugatti".

40 pounds lighter than the Chiron thanks to carbon fiber (including for the windscreen wipers), the Chiron Sport in 110 ans Bugatti flavor is limited to 20 examples of the breed.

Truth be told, this vehicle - of which just 20 will be built - doesn't have a whole lot in common with the Type 10. The special Chiron gets a body and front constructed from carbon fibre, finished in a matt "Steel Blue" (or should that be - narrows eyes, pouts lips - Blue Steel?) paintjob, along with exposed carbon fibre in steel blue carbon.

Behind the alloy wheels painted in "Nocturne" matt black, the bright blue (French Racing Blue) brake calipers are visible.

Inside, the auto is detailed with the distinct tricolor stripes on its headrests and backrests of the two-tone blue leather and Alcantara seats to further reference its historic French roots. Finally, each auto will get a specially crafted medallion in the central console stowage space, made of solid silver with enamel inserts.

Pricing for the Bugatti Chiron Sport "110 ans Bugatti" has not been revealed.

More carbon-fibre is used for the nacelle, steering wheel, steering column and seat trims, while the door trims, sides and seats areas are covered in Alcantara.

Bugatti says the old Type 10 had "adequate power", and this very special and very French Chiron definitely has that-its 8.0-litre W16 engine with four turbochargers makes a whopping 1,479 horsepower.

Bugatti didn't name a price but considering the base Chiron Sport starts at 2.65 million euros (about RM12.2 million) before taxes and options, it won't come cheap. The inserts on the cylinder banks are made from aluminium with a clear anodized finish. Power goes to all four corners via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and the vehicle will complete the 0-100 km/h sprint in under 2.5 seconds.

Form follows Performance. This applies especially to the new edition.
