Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 55 | Bespoke One-Off Homage To Classic Icon

The Bugatti Chiron is one of the most recognizable luxury hypercars. Bugatti’s latest creation, the bespoke Chiron Super Sport 55, perfectly blends the brand’s storied past with cutting-edge innovation. This one-of-a-kind car is a tribute to the legendary Bugatti Type 55 Super Sport, combining historical significance with modern performance.

The Bugatti Type 55, crafted by Jean Bugatti, debuted in 1932 with only 38 units ever produced. This groundbreaking vehicle was Bugatti’s first Super Sport model, boasting a 2.3-liter straight-eight engine from the Type 51 endurance racer. With its showstopping design and advanced engineering, the Type 55 could hit a top speed of 112 mph—a remarkable achievement for its time. Its elegant two-seat roadster body and unique two-tone paint scheme made it one of the most beautiful cars ever created.

The one-off Chiron Super Sport 55 draws heavily from this heritage. Commissioned through Bugatti’s Sur Mesure customization program, this bespoke vehicle captures the essence of Jean Bugatti’s innovative designs, ensuring the Type 55’s legacy continues in a modern context.

The Chiron Super Sport 55 is a showstopper, paying tribute to its predecessor with a bold black and yellow paint scheme inspired by the original Type 55. This color combination highlights the Chiron’s sleek lines and adds a balanced, eye-catching appeal. Unique touches include the black centerline, a fading ’55’ pattern above the lights and wheel arches, special 10-spoke wheels, and ’55 1 of 1′ hand-painted on the rear wing.

The Chiron Super Sport 55 continues the color theme to the interior. It’s dominated by sleek black leather with vibrant yellow accents and features quilted leather seats, contrast stitching, the omnipresent ’55’ motif, embroidered headrests, and hand-stitched door panels.

Despite the nod to the classic, the Chiron Super Sport 55 is anything but old. It runs on Bugatti’s formidable 8.0-liter W-16 engine. This powerhouse produces an astounding 1,578 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, allowing the hypercar to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds and achieve a top speed of 273 mph.

While Bugatti has not disclosed the exact price of this unique vehicle, it is expected to exceed the $3.7 million starting price of the standard Chiron Super Sport. This one-of-a-kind creation is not merely a hypercar but a rolling piece of art and history. For more information, please visit the official Bugatti website.
