If someone thinks the Bugatti Chiron needs more retooling, they’re simply crazy. Yet that’s exactly the headspace Mansory needed to be in when it built this Bugatti Chiron Centuria, which is unbelievably more formidable than its base inspiration.
A listing for the car popped up Monday on the German tuning company’s website. The mod marks the first time anyone has dared to modify the Chrino, on its own already a pretty beastly affair. But as you know in the world of cars, the best is a peak not a plateau. Mansory knew the Bugatti Chiron set a high bar. So it moved that bar even further.
In all fairness, Mansory has the credentials to back it up. It’s been renovating Bugatti cars since 2009. And here’s how it describes itself:
“No other company can boast more experience in individualization of these million-dollar luxury sports cars than the team around company founder and designer Kourosh Mansory.”
You get the idea. As of this time, it’s not exactly clear if Mansory touched the ride’s 1,500 horsepower, 8-liter, W-16 engine. It did, however, redo the exterior. On top of a new Centuria blue paint job, the supercar now boasts bespoke carbon-fiber body panels, new side skirts, and a diffuser. It’s also got a redesigned wing, which will apparently improve the car’s aerodynamics.
Mansory also added larger intake inlets on the hood for better engine cooling. There’s a special exhaust and fully forged alloy wheels as well, complete with a turbine design and a carbon-fiber finish.
Now, on to the big question — how much?
Well, you can get the Bugatti Chiron Centuria for a cool Centuria for $4.8 million.BUY IF YOU DARE
