Bugatti Introduces One-of-One Chiron Profilée

Bugatti Introduces One-of-One Chiron Profilée

Published: January 12, 2023 | By: American Luxury Staff

Among other newsworthy items from VW Group flagship brand Bugatti is the delivery of the final Centodieci, which went to its owner earlier last month. Perhaps more interesting to followers of the brand who happen to be collectors is the remarkable Chiron Profilée, a single-example variant of the successful model. The automaker announced that the special vehicle will go to auction in the first quarter of this year.

The Profilée was designed to be a daily driver version of the Chiron Pur Sport; performance minded, but perhaps more tourer than track demon. The one-off’s exterior is finished in a dramatic and custom-designed ‘Argent Atlantique’ paint color. The two-tone division between paler and darker blue really brings out the model-defining calligraphic sweep that sets of the car’s profile and brings such grace to its form, while blue carbon is the ideal accent.

But, as the legendary Bugatti W16 powerhouse gas-burner is now out of regular production, the real appeal for many buyers may be the fact that the Profilée represents the last opportunity to purchase a new Bugatti packing that singular engine.

Like the Pur Sport, the Chiron Profilée features a six-foot fixed rear wing, hair-trigger gear ratios, and magnesium wheels. The variant strays from the Pur Sport recipe by being less aggressive; however, with a top speed of 236 MPH, it bests the Pur Sport’s 217 MPH showing. Nearly a limited-edition production run, the Profilée’s design was nearing finalization when the Chiron sold out.

The Bugatti Chiron Profilée will be auctioned by R.M. Sotheby’s Paris on February 1.
