The Chiron Profilée is one of the last cars to feature the French marque’s famous W16 engine, although the recently unveiled Mistral Roadster is a complete farewell to an engine with around 1,600 hp.
Able to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 2.3 seconds, the unique Profilée Coupe was originally created as an experiment to see if aspects of the Pur Sport variant could be incorporated into a more comfort-focused car. “We knew what we had made was too beautiful to hide,” said Christophe Beauchon, Bugatti boss. He described the car as “a real Bugatti and a unique piece of collectible automotive history.”

The Profilée includes a number of aspects from the Pur Sport, such as shorter gear ratios for faster acceleration, a more aggressively tuned chassis including changes to camber angles and a stiffer suspension for better handling compared to the base Chiron. However, it also comes with a number of unique features, including a fixed rear spoiler that it uses to add rear downforce and extract hot air from the engine compartment.
Inside, the car is the first Bugatti to get a woven leather finish applied to the dashboard, door panels, and center console. The Argent Atlantique livery inside the car is also exclusive to Profilée. The lower part of the car is made of carbon fibre.
The car will be auctioned at RM Sotheby’s on February 1, and an undisclosed portion of the proceeds will go to charity.
