Bugatti Pays Tribute to French Pilots with a Road-Going Jet

There might not be a better way to celebrate France’s history in aviation than racing a modern fighter jet with Bugatti’s special-edition Chiron. This Chiron Sport Les Légendes du Ciel carries the aesthetic of early aviation with its paint design, and carries the plane theme throughout the Chiron’s interior.

Powering this land-going jet is the 8.0-liter W16 that sports four turbochargers. This incredible engine makes nearly 1500 hp and can carry this luxury machine to 261 mph if you can find a road long enough to get there.

The ridiculous performance of the Bugatti Chiron Sport makes it the perfect complement to the fighter jet seen in the video above. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see a timed race between the jet and the Chiron, but I’m sure the Bugatti would hold its own. In this artistic rendering of a race, the Chiron looks to take an early lead on the jet.

If you happen to be one of the 20 lucky folks to snag one of these Les Légendes du Ciel edition Bugatti Chirons and want to race it against your personal jet, we’d be happy to see the results. As for the price? Let’s just say you might want to have your personal auto broker reach out to your financial people before getting in touch with Bugatti. If you don’t have financial people, maybe you’re better off just watching the video above.

What should Bugatti celebrate with its next limited-edition Chiron? Let us know in the comments below.
