In honor of the aviation heritage of both the revered French brand and some of its racers, Bugatti has now created a limited edition Chiron Sport with enough power to easily take flight.

Aptly named Les Légendes du Ciel — or “Legends of the Sky” — the new limited edition comes dressed in Gris Serpent, a specific tone of gray inspired by some of the French planes that took flight during the 1920s. A pristine white stripe runs down the entirety of the center to provide a dash of contrast, while the car’s rocket panels on either side are adorned with the French flag’s blue, white, and red. Complementing the exterior is an interior lined with a light whiskey-toned leather, coupled with bright aluminium accents to provide a truly vintage aesthetic.

As for performance, this particular Chiron Spot comes equipped with a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine, capable of pushing out a whopping 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque with the help of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Top speed is electronically limited to 261 mph.

“Many successful Bugatti racing drivers, such as Albert Divo, Robert Benoist and Bartolomeo ‘Meo’ Costantini, flew for the French Air Force,” Bugatti’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann explains. “It is therefore almost an obligation for us today to pay tribute to the legends of that time and dedicate a special edition to them.”

Only 20 examples of the Chiron Sport Les Légendes du Ciel will be made, each going for roughly $3.41 million USD.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Aston Martin has created a Vantage Legacy Collection.
