Experts told how Bugatti hypercars differ from each otherJuly 22, 2020
Bugatti Deputy Director of Design Frank Hale told how the special versions of the same model differ from each other.
At first glance, the Chiron Pur Sport and Chiron Super Sport 300+ hypercars are the same, but it’s worth taking a closer look to realize that the difference between them is enormous. First of all, these special versions are designed for different purposes. The Chiron Pur Sport is much better at cornering and accelerating, while the Chiron Super Sport 300+ has the world’s fastest top speed.
Based on this, the design of the cars was developed. So, the Pur Sport version has enlarged air intakes in the front, front and rear splitters and a rear wing almost 2 meters wide. This gives the car a speedy feel and looks wider and shorter than the Super Sport 300+. When creating these cars, Bugatti specialists widely used 3D printing technology, so that designers and engineers were not limited to the classic shapes of parts.
Thanks to the use of special magnesium alloy wheels, Bugatti specialists were able to solve several problems at once. Firstly, the blades on the wheels better dissipate heat from the brakes and the engine. Secondly, thanks to the material from which they are made, the engineers managed to reduce the weight of the car by 16 kg. As a result of all the tweaks, the company managed to release a hypercar that has a “low” top speed of 350 km / h, but at the same time perfectly cornering.
The opposite of Pur Sport is the Bugatti Super Sport 300+. In this case, engineers and designers were faced with the task of making a hypercar with the highest possible speed limit, and I must say, they did it. First of all, for stability at high speed, it was decided to increase the length of the car body by 25 cm. In addition, in this case, it was necessary to think over the aerodynamics. So, to reduce the lifting effect, it was decided to make air ducts in the upper part of the front fenders to exhaust air and reduce the pressure in the wheel arches. In addition, the body is equipped with side air intakes, which help to “press” the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ to the road.
