Here's the Profilée, the hidden chapter of Bugatti Chiron-based variant

~ONE Off~ After a few days ago appearing into several teasers, finally Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. reveals the figure of its newest supercar which is said to be built based on the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport and named the Bugatti Chiron Profilée.

The Bugatti Chiron Profilée was one of the last cars to sport the French marque's iconic W16 engine, although the recently revealed on August, 2022, the Mistral roadster also uses the same type of engine with a total power output of around 1,600 bhp. By using those kind of engine, the Chiron Profilée capable to accelerate from zero to 100 kph in just 2.3 seconds and run up to top speed of 380 kph.

Originally the unique Profilée coupé was created as an experiment to see if the sharp aspects of the Pur Sport variant could be integrated into such a car that prioritizes comfort.
In later developments the Profilée incorporated several aspects of the Pur Sport, such as shorter gear ratios for faster acceleration, a more aggressively tuned chassis including changes to chamber angle and a stiffer suspension for better handling compared to its donor car.

However, the Profilée coupé also comes with a number of unique features, including a fixed rear wing which it uses to increase rear downforce and to extract hot air out of the engine bay.
