Bugatti unveils the final Chiron Super Sport L'Ultime in a stunning farewell edition
The legendary Bugatti Chiron, known for being the first road car to produce 1,500 metric horsepower and reach speeds of 490 km/h, has just delivered the last of its 500 units.

Named the Chiron Super Sport L'Ultime, this model reimagines the design and color scheme of the original model unveiled in Geneva eight years ago.

This time, the "Atlantic Blue" and "French Racing Blue" hues blend seamlessly to create a striking aesthetic, with even the wheels matching this two-tone treatment.

The Bugatti emblem, designed and developed in blue exclusively for this edition, sits at the center of the horseshoe grille, enhancing the dramatic effect of the body, which is adorned with hand-written locations and events that have contributed to the Chiron's legend.

This idea was a collaboration between Bugatti's Sur Mesure team and the anonymous buyer who will acquire this masterpiece.

Events such as the Geneva launch, appearances at Chantilly, tests on the Paul Ricard circuit, and the record-breaking run at over 300 mph (490 km/h) on the Ehra-Lessien track are all commemorated.

The origins of Bugatti with the iconic Château Saint Jean in Molsheim, as well as Cap Canaveral where clients tested the Chiron's extreme speeds, are also highlighted.

The French flag is affixed to the mirrors, and to celebrate this final unit, the number "500" is hand-written on the vehicle's body, wheel covers, and rear wing, and engraved on the engine cover housing Bugatti's W16 engine.

Inside, the cabin features a bridge between luxurious "Deep Blue" hand-woven leather and "Blue Carbon" matte finishes, along with other "French Racing Blue" accents.

With the artwork that is L'Ultime, we have traced the eight years of the Chiron's life and its key moments that have made many fans' eyes shine around the world, not forgetting the countless innovations it brought and the records it broke, said Bugatti President Christophe Piochon.

This 500th and final model is a worthy farewell, testifying to a legacy that will remain forever engraved in automotive history. It paves the way for a bright new chapter, which will begin with the production of the Bolide and the W16 Mistral and continue with the unveiling of our new model in June.

As mentioned earlier this year, Bugatti, now under the control of the young Croatian manufacturer Rimac, will electrify its next car by integrating a hybrid V16 engine. Expect power to exceed the 1,577 horsepower to which Bugatti enthusiasts have become accustomed.
