EXCLUSIVE EDITION PAYING TRIBUTE TO LEGENDARY FRENCH PILOTS

Both aviation and racing were heavily pushed forward in France at the outset of last century. Both stood for courage, speed, and extraordinary technology. No wonder Ettore Bugatti became as fascinated by aviation and pilots as he was by motor cars. And no wonder the most courageous pilots of the time were fascinated by BUGATTI’s agile, light, and speedy vehicles, embodying on the road what their planes were in the sky.

With the exclusive edition “Les Légendes du Ciel”, BUGATTI pays homage to the unique and fruitful relationship between our founder and France’s legendary pilots and race car drivers Louis Blériot, Roland Garros, Robert Benoist, Bartolomeo Costantini, and Albert Divo.

AN HOMAGE TO FRANCE’S DAREDEVILS OF THE SKY

The model is based on a CHIRON Sport in matt grey (“Gris Serpent”), mirroring the metallic exterior colour of the early 20th century planes. A broad high-contrast, white gloss runway-like center stripe spans over the car’s complete body from the back to the front. The double wing front is a reminiscence of the Nieuport 17 biplane flown by so many of those pilots. And the horseshoe radiator grille’s mesh pattern resembles planes flying in parade formation. The logo (a propeller) and lettering “Les Légendes du Ciel” are applied to the left and right front fenders. The Bleu-Blanc-Rouge French tricolor decorates the car’s exposed-carbon-fiber side sills, paying tribute to BUGATTI’s and the Daredevils’ origins. Customers who want to add a further touch of sky to their Légendes du Ciel, can select a Sky View glass roof.

THE COCKPIT

The hyper sports car’s interior is entirely brown Gaucho leather, as fine and yet as robust as in the original Nieuport 17’s cockpit. The pattern of the parade formation is repeated in the seat’s stitching, and so are the propeller logo and lettering on the seats’ head rests as well as on an aluminum inlay of the middle console.

The biplane and BUGATTI’s earliest successful racing car, the Type 13, are commemorated in a hand-sketched scene on the door panels.

RARITY, SPEED, AND EXTRAORDINARY TECHNOLOGY

The edition “Les Légendes du Ciel” impresses with its minimalist character through its colors and the polished aluminum and would entirely be in the mind of legendary pilot Roland Garros, who once called Ettore Bugatti the “incomparable artist who alone knows how to give life to steel.” The W16 engine with a capacity of 8.0 liters delivers 1,500 PS and 1,600 Nm of torque. Its maximum speed is electronically limited only at 420 km/h.
The exclusive edition Chiron Sport “Les Légendes du Ciel” is limited to 20 units. Production starts by end of 2020.
