ugatti is offering a sport version of its 1,500 PS super sports car two years after its world debut.

The new version, Bugatti Chiron Sport,  offers significantly improved handling and even greater agility with no change in the power or performance data.

Bugatti has developed a dynamic handling package and reduced the weight of its car by about 18 kilograms, almost 40 pounds.

The main differences from the standard version are a new wheel design and new four-pipe exhaust deflector.

As you can see, the Chiron Sport gets a new, quad-tailpipe exhaust system and the number “16” emblazoned on its front grille, representing the 16-cylinder engine, naturally.

Power, of course, was never in short supply for the Chiron, and so Bugatti sticks with the existing car’s strengths. That includes the same quad-turbocharged W16 engine, with 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque.

Dynamic handling package and lighter weight make Chiron Sport faster

The 2019 Bugatti Chiron Sport benefits a new dynamic handling package. The Bugatti developers have defined a stiffer suspension. This includes a new control strategy for the shock absorbers, which react 10 percent more stiffly than on the Chiron on average.

The steering has also been modified without sacrificing its outstanding direct feel and its calculable performance. These new settings only take effect in the Handling mode of the Chiron Sport, which is therefore distinguished from the EB mode more clearly for the driver.

In addition to these changes, the rear-axle differential has been optimised and the car now features a Dynamic Torque Vectoring function that distributes torque individually to the wheels on each side, significantly improving the steering behaviour and agility of the vehicle, especially in tight curves. This change is effective in all driving modes.

One of the modifications which make the Bugatti Chiron Sport more nimble is a weight reduction of about 18 kilograms, thanks to the use of new lightweight parts. The greatest savings were possible as a result of the new lightweight wheels

As a result, the Chiron Sport has become even more responsive and corners even faster. On the handling course of the Nardò test circuit, Bugatti developers recorded a lap time which is five seconds faster than the base Chiron model. Due to its design the Nardò circuit is especially well-suited as a reference track for the Chiron, as the super sports car can reach its full handling potential even at cornering speeds in excess of 200 km/h.
