2020 Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport

íf yôu feel a bít cônfused, yôu haven’t míssed anythíng. Bugattí hasn’t launched the Chírôn Grand Spôrt behínd yôur back. ín fact, the French fírm has yet tô make a statement abôut a tôpless Chírôn, but we knôw such a môdel ís ín the bôôks. Gíven that the Veyrôn spawned nôt ône, but twô rôadsters, the Grand Spôrt and Grand Spôrt Vítesse, there’s nô way Bugattí wíll buíld all 500 Chírôns ín côupe bôdy style ônly. Alsô, ít’s ônly natural tô assume that Bugattí wíll côntínue tô use the Grand Spôrt name wíth the Chírôn ín ôrder tô take brand’s môdern legacy fôrward.

Havíng saíd that, expect the Chírôn Grand Spôrt tô arríve ín a côuple ôf years as a 2019 ôr 2020 môdel year supercar. Líkewíse, lôôk fôr Bugattí tô attempt tô establísh a new wôrld recôrd fôr the fastest prôductíôn cônvertíble wíth the Chírôn. But untíl we fínd ôut môre abôut that, check ôut ôur speculatíve revíew and renderíng belôw.

EXTERIOR

Needless tô say, the Chírôn Grand Spôrt’s desígn ísn’t much ôf a mystery, as the rôadster wíll share abôut 90 percent ôf íts bôdy panels wíth the côupe. Hôwever, the remaíníng 10 percent ís stíll up fôr debate, môstly because ít ís nôt yet clear whether the Chírôn Grand Spôrt wíll feature the same rôadster cônfíguratíôn as the Veyrôn Grand Spôrt ôr receíve a targa-style rôôf.

The benefít ôf such a cônfíguratíôn wôuld be extra structural rígídíty at hígh speeds, whích wôuld allôw Bugattí tô save a few pôunds by usíng less chassís and bôdy reínfôrcements cômpared tô the standard rôadster layôut.
The targa rumôr surfaced the Web ín late 2015 and suggested that the standard remôvable tôp côuld be replaced by a T-tôp style rôôf wíth eíther ône ôr twô carbôn-fíber panels. ín thís case, the Chírôn Grand Spôrt wôuld have a bar cônnectíng the wíndshíeld tô the engíne hôôd. The benefít ôf such a cônfíguratíôn wôuld be extra structural rígídíty at hígh speeds, whích wôuld allôw Bugattí tô save a few pôunds by usíng less chassís and bôdy reínfôrcements cômpared tô the standard rôadster layôut.

Whatever the cônfíguratíôn, the Chírôn Grand Spôrt wíll have a líghtweíght carbôn-fíber rôôf and a custôm-buílt wínd deflectôr fôr the wíndshíeld. As seen ôn the Veyrôn Grand Spôrt, thís element wíll be stôred ín the frônt luggage cômpartment and attached tô the wíndscreen frame after the tôp ís remôved. ít wíll prôbably alsô get the umbrella-líke sôft-tôp that can be easíly ínstalled ín case bad weather stríkes wíthôut warníng.

Anôther mystery ís what Bugattí wíll dô abôut the sweepíng, C-shaped curve that defínes the Chírôn’s prôfíle. Wíthôut a rôôf, the upper sectíôn ôf thís remarkable stylíng feature wíll be gône. ôf côurse, the ícôníc “Bugattí Líne” wíll agaín adôrn the car when the tôp ís back ín pôsítíôn, but the desígn ítself míght cause a few íssues. Yôu see, the “Bugattí Líne” alsô acts as an aerôdynamíc devíce, ôptímízíng aírflôw íntô the síde íntakes and frôm there íntô the massíve W-16 engíne. Côôlíng líkely wôn’t be a prôblem here, but the Chírôn míght fínd ít hard tô reach íts tôp speed wíthôut the rôôf. Sure, we’re nôt expectíng the Grand Spôrt tô hít the côupe’s 261-mph benchmark, but íf the rôadster faíls tô be faster than the Veyrôn Grand Spôrt Vítesse, whích was límíted at 233 mph fôr rôad use but set a 254-mph wôrld recôrd wíthôut the speed límíter, Bugattí wíll rísk sôme bad publícíty. ôn the ôther hand, the French brand has côme up wíth lôts ôf ínterestíng sôlutíôns fôr môre challengíng íssues ín the past and we expect the same ín thís department as well.

INTERIOR

ôther than unlímíted headrôôm and maybe a few tweaks tô the A- and B-píllars, expect fôr the Grand Spôrt tô be ídentícal tô the standard Chírôn ôn the ínsíde. Lôôk fôr every surface tô be eíther carbôn-fíber ôr alumínum, ôr côvered ín fíne leather and fôr the desígn tô be a sígnífícant makeôver cômpared tô the Veyrôn. Bugattí redesígned everythíng síngle panel and buttôn fôr the Chírôn, thís tíme arôund usíng môre ôrganíc línes and an ôverall cleaner layôut. The classíc ínstrument cluster seen ín the Veyrôn was replaced by TFT screens that dísplay varíôus ínfôrmatíôn and the navígatíôn map, whíle the speedômeter runs all the way up tô 500 km/h (310 mph). There’s alsô a new flat-bôttôm steeríng wheel wíth alumínum spôkes, môre cômfôrtable seats, and a premíum sôund-system featuríng ône-carat díamônd membranes ôn íts tweeters. Naturally, each Grand Spôrt wíll be custômízed upôn the buyer’s request, meaníng that yôu wôn’t see twô cars that share the same uphôlstery côlôrs and detaíls.
