  • This is the first Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport to arrive in the United States.

  • It's finished in Quartz White and powered by a 1479-hp quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16.

  • Only 60 will be made, and they cost $3.6 million each.

Bugatti recently decided that it wanted to develop a track-focused car, but that didn't mean it wasn't going to continue making some of the fastest straight line accelerating cars in the world as well. The Chiron Pur Sport is the result of Bugatti's desire to crush apexes, and one of the 60 cars has now arrived on U.S. soil at Bugatti of Greenwich, Connecticut.

The Chiron Pur Sport is 110 pounds lighter than the standard Chiron, and it has a 74.8-inch fixed rear spoiler, a lighter set of wheels wrapped in specially developed Michelin Sport Cup 2R tires, a stiffer suspension, and a 3D-printed lightweight titanium exhaust spitting out of a huge rear diffuser. The first example to arrive in the U.S. is finished in Quartz White with exposed carbon fiber and Gun Powder accents. Inside, there's an optional glass roof, and the interior is finished in Italian Red leather.

Bugatti's quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 engine is at the heart of the Pur Sport, and its output of 1500 horsepower is unchanged from the standard Chiron, though it has a 6900-rpm redline. Bugatti claims that it'll help the Pur Sport reach 62 mph in 2.3 seconds. In our testing, a Chiron Sport reached 60 mph in 2.4 seconds on its way to a lightning quick 9.4-second quarter-mile at 158 mph, making it the quickest car we've ever tested.

This example was sold to a customer at Bugatti of Greenwich, Connecticut, for over $3 million. Only 60 Pur Sports will be built, and we hope to see a few more land on our shores.
