Fancy a little more light in your Chiron’s cabin? This is Bugatti’s solution, so you can start playing Smokey and the Hella Fast Bandit.
Adding four exhausts, a carbon wiper and some retuned suspension to the Chiron earlier this year heralded a whole new version: the Chiron Sport. Now Molsheim’s at it again. And this time it is the new Sky View option for the Bugatti Chiron. And it is, as you can see, a glass roof.
There’s not a lot of mystery to how it works – ostensibly, it’s a pair of glass panels installed in the roof either side of the Chiron’s dramatic central spine, each measuring 65cm by 44cm, adding just a little more sunlight to the car’s sumptuous cabin.
Do you ever gaze at the stars and lose yourself in the never-ending potential of the open universe? About how there’s so much out there and anything’s possible? Have you ever done that while sitting in a Bugatti Chiron? Well, ya can now.
Bugatti has introduced a new option for the Chiron, called the Sky View, in which it will fit two glass panels to the roof of the car, right over the driver’s and passenger’s seats. Just look at that view now.
“But what about wind nooooooooise?” you moan. Fear not! Bugatti wouldn’t let anything as annoying as noise from the rushing wind ruin your ride; the panels are made with thin glass and four “intermediate layers” which will cut the sound.
“But what about UV raaaaaaays?” you moan. Fret not! Bugatti says that infrared radiation is reflected away from the inside of the car for maximum comfort. Nobody is wilting in a greenhouse on Bugatti’s watch. Also, UVA and UVB radiation is filtered out. Melanoma is for the poor.
“But what if a drone is spying on meeeeee?” you moan. Worry not! The glass has been tinted “to prevent dazzle effects” and also protects your privacy. The government won’t ever know what’s going on in your Chiron.
“But what about room for my heeeeeeead?” you moan. Stress not! The Sky View option gives you an additional 2.7 centimeters of headroom over the standard roof. Feel free to grow taller.
“And exactly, this option will cost?” As they say, if you have to ask...
"We do not communicate options costs as a matter of rule, I am afraid. These will be shared with the customers directly." It's safe to say that if it's a concern, you can't afford the rest of the car anyway.
With this new roof, cast your gaze heavenwards. Look up, not down, as you too often do. Be at one with the universe. Be at one with all the unending potential that your money can bring.
