The Bugatti Chiron Sport "110 ans Bugatti" has been unveiled with a subtle two-tone exterior paint job.

It celebrates 110 years since the first ever Bugatti obviously, but takes few cues from that first auto.

The hypercar's bodywork is themed around France's blue, white and red tricolor flag, but the prominent use of the theme is seen on the underside of the Chiron's movable rear wing. This is also the arrangement adopted on French official vehicles, where the standard has the colour of liberty (blue) to the fore on both sides.

Rosters held only 21 players, which, when injuries mounted, forced some players back into action before they were fully healthy. During recent negotiations with the union, Major League Baseball asked to reestablish the 15-day version of the list.

Power (and that's a true understatement here) is as per the regular Chiron Sport, with an 8-litre, 16-cylinder, quad-turbo petrol engine pushing 1103kW and 1600Nm. The rear end is dominated by the diffuser and bumper in glossy steel blue carbon with the contrasting matte black exhaust system. Bugatti says the cap is sandblasted before being hand polished to achieve its handsome finish, with the '"110 ans Bugatti' emblem and the Tricolore running vertically through it". You'll also find the flag on the 12 o'clock mark of the steering wheel that combines matte carbon-fibre with a blue leather cover. The interior also gets Deep Blue leather upholstery and French Racing Blue. Inside the center console sits a medallion made of solid silver and enamel inserts, which sits on a carbon-fiber plate.

Instead of some clear nods to the old Type 10, Bugatti has turned the Chiron into a celebration of France, where Italian-born Ettore spent much of his life. The founder's son Jean Bugatti created his own memorial with the Type 57 SC Atlantic, a design manifesto. The Chiron, which has been made since 2016 in weeks of hand crafting, is a modern luxury hyper sports vehicle that fits seamlessly into the Bugatti family tree. Power goes to all four corners via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and the auto will complete the 0-100 km/h sprint in under 2.5 seconds. The maximum speed is far higher, at 420 km/h.
