2022 BUGATTI Chiron Supersport 300+
Black Carbon and Jet Orange with Beluga Black and Jet Orange
Powered by Bugatti’s incredible 8.0-litre quad-turbocharged W-16 engine, tuned for an earth-shattering 1,578 horsepower output, the beating heart of the Bugatti Chiron is an engine of almost unfathomable power. The 16-cylinder, 8.0-litre, quad-turbocharged “W-16” engine first found fame in the Veyron. The earliest examples of the landmark hypercar coaxed just shy of 1,000 horsepower from the powertrain and over time, its engine was honed for further iterations of the model. When the Chiron arrived in 2016, the heavily revised engine produced a staggering 1,500 horsepower, some 296 horsepower more than the most powerful Veyron. The Chiron Super Sport 300+ took things a step further and in 2019 the stage was set for Bugatti to reveal its special edition Super Sport 300+.
In September 2019, Bugatti announced that a near-production version of a highly tuned Chiron had broken the 300-mph barrier, the prototype topped out at 304.773 mph, with Bugatti test driver and former Le Mans-winner, Andy Wallace, this laid the legacy for the Chiron Super Sport 300+. Shortly after the world-record-setting event, Bugatti announced that this extreme version would soon enter production, limited to only 30 examples. “Nobody is faster,” a Bugatti press release proclaimed, as the new model was presented to selected customers gathered to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the tradition-steeped company.
With an elongated body and advanced aerodynamics honed for low drag and high-speed stability, the Super Sport 300+ was radically different from the Chirons that had come before it. Bespoke “Air Curtains” were installed around the front corners of the hypercar to reduce high-speed air pressure and guide airflow along each flank, while outlets on the wheel arches reduce drag and result in a degree of negative lift. The “Longtail” rear, which added 25 centimetres compared with a standard Chiron aided aerodynamic flow and reduced the low-pressure zone behind the car, while a clever diffuser helped compensate for the lack of a traditional rear spoiler.
Its body is made of exposed carbon fibre to aid weight-saving, complemented by extremely lightweight wheels made from magnesium. Each of the 30 examples was finished by the Molsheim atelier in Black Carbon with Jet Orange racing stripes, with the interior dominated by Alcantara, black carbon, and leather materials styled in Beluga Black with complementary Jet Orange highlights.
After its reveal the Chiron Super Sport 300+ entered a two-year testing phase and first orders began towards the end of 2021, each of the 30 limited edition examples were sold.
This particular example was delivered new through Bugatti London and resided from new amongst one of the UKs most well-renowned privately owned car collections. Correspondence from the Molsheim factory notes the original order date as December 2019, with the customer handover taking place in January 2022. This Bugatti has been enjoyed sparingly which is evident from the odometer reading today of just 1,419 miles.
The Chiron Super Sport 300+ builds on the Bugatti legacy, it is a limited-edition beauty so technologically advanced, with performance figures so incomprehensible that it is almost without rival to date.
This car truly offers the chance for its next custodian to own nothing less than a piece of history and represents a great investment opportunity for any discerning collector.
