This is a one-off Bugatti Chiron Sport

Meet ‘Alice’, a track-honed Chiron ordered by a husband as a gift for his wife

As presents go, this certainly trumps ‘last-minute-petrol-station-flowers’ and a novelty card. This is a one-off Bugatti Chiron Sport – the harder, lighter, track-honed Chiron – “ordered by a husband as a gift for his wife”. Yup, that is what you’d officially term A Good Gift.

Ordered via Bugatti’s London-based dealer partner, the Chiron Sport customer was then welcomed to the brand’s base in Molsheim, where the work began.

That pink – sorry, ‘Silk Rosé' – exterior covers the back half of the car, with white adorning the front. The pink has been lavished across the wheels and interior stitching, too; an interior that features an embroidered ‘Alice’ on the headrest, and on the door sills.

Underneath it’s as per the regular Chiron Sport, by which we mean 'not regular in the slightest'. The 8.0-litre W16 engine kicks out 1,479bhp, deployed via 4WD to allow 0-62mph in 2.5secs and a v-max of 261mph. It’s also 18kg lighter than the base Chiron (if such a phrase can be applied here), and remains a terrifyingly fast motor vehicle.

Elsewhere, there’s a mode that increases suspension stiffness by 10 per cent, sharpens up the steering, and works in tandem with the rear diff, itself featuring torque vectoring. It’s pointy.

And its colour scheme sits nicely in the world of flamboyant machinery decorated in something other than, say, orange und black.
