Video: watch this Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport DRIFT

Start your weekend right with this drifting, smoking Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport tearing up some Cup 2s

We’ll get straight to the point: Bugatti has stuck one of its development drivers into a Chiron Pur Sport - the leaner, sharper, expensivier version of the Chiron - and let him torture a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s. That’s the story.

The purpose (if you can call it that) of the endeavour is to deploy the 8.0-litre W16’s 1,577bhp and 1,180lb ft in such a manner that the Chiron would trace ‘a perfect arc that would form the famous Bugatti C-line when viewed from above’.

Nice, but we’re gonna take the more low-brow point of entry into this, which is of course MONSTROUSLY EXCLUSIVE HYPERTOY GOES DRIFTING. Ahem.

As you can see from the video below (or the gallery above, if you’re in a remote area and can only stretch to one bar of GPRS) the results are… pretty emphatic, considering it’s four-wheel drive at play.

“The controllability of the Chiron Pur Sport’s all-wheel drive is outstanding,” said Bugatti's driver, Sven Bohnhorst. “You, the driver, decide, if you want to slip the rear axle to make the car turn or if you want to stabilise it with more slip at the front, solely by balancing it with the throttle.

“You can also have all four wheels spinning at once – just as you like it! This is what I call a car made for drivers.”
