  • Bugatti Chiron Sport “110 ans Bugatti”

Having taken a look at the photos, you are probably now wondering why the colours of the French flag are shown as a mirror image on the right-hand side of the vehicle. That's 110 years ago, and Bugatti would like to celebrate this anniversary with a special edition of the Chiron Sport - the "110 ans Bugatti".

As you might have gathered from the name, it's an anniversary special, celebrating the passing of 110 years since the Type 10, Ettore Bugatti's first ever vehicle. Composite is used for manufacturing outer panels, front and aerodynamic elements. The front end consists of exposed carbon fibre in Steel Blue Carbon, once again a matte colour suggestive of steel. She needs to be reminded of the historical Bugatti models.

You'll also find brake calipers painted in French Racing Blue behind the matte black "Nocturne" alloy wheels, and a bespoke aluminium filler cap. Rear bumper and diffuser painted in high-gloss version of the shade of Steel Blue Carbon.

Much of the 1479bhp hypercar's bodywork revisions are themed around France's blue, white and red tricolour flag. This particular example also comes with the Sky View roof, as well as matte black detailing applied on the exhaust system and rear spoiler mechanism. Inserts in doors and seats are made from Alcantara, and bluish skin tint which is called Bright French Racing Blue.

ESA Mars rover named after Rosalind Franklin, brilliant DNA pioneer
The rover is part of the ExoMars programme, a joint endeavour between ESA and the Russian State Space Corporation, Roscosmos. Nobel Prizes can not be awarded posthumously, but it's unclear if Franklin would have been given credit at the time, anyway.

Inside, the vehicle 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.

The company was founded by Ettore Bugatti in 1909 in Molsheim, which was at the time a part of the German Empire. It was "light, small and nimble with an adequate power output".

Performance figures stay the same, with the Chiron Sport's 8.0 litre quad-turbo W16 engine serving up 1,479 hp (1,500 PS) and 1,600 Nm of torque. This is an industrial product of considerable artistic merit. The famed Bugatti line, the brand's graphic DNA, also adorns this exclusive model.
