The Bugatti Valentine’s gift

Alice received a one-off Bugatti Chiron Sport as her gift for Valentine's day.

February 14 is Valentine’s day, the perfect day to give the love of your life a nice gift, some will bring flowers, others might get a nice piece of jewelry … but one guy walked into H.R.Owen in London and went the extra mile. He ordered a one-off, bespoke build Bugatti Chiron Sport as a gift for his loved one, which, judging by the name found all-over this Bug, is called ‘Alice’.

But don’t get me wrong here, each and every Bugatti Chiron Sport is custom-built for her lucky owner, none of these cars look alike when they leave the doors of ‘the Atelier’ in Molheim, but still, some are more special than others, and come with a long list of truly bespoke options, like this ‘Alice’ version.

The main shade on this specific Bugatti Chiron Sport is white, but on a Bugatti, it’s called ‘Matt Blanc’, and in this case, it has been combined with ‘Silk Rosé’, a special shade of pink, on the rear section, the lower side sills and the lower part of the front bumper. Also, note a touch of Silk Rosé on the top part of the exterior mirrors … the white on rosé two-tone makes her one-of-a-kind, no other Bugatti was even built in this specific color combination. Also note the stunning wheels on this Chiron Sport get a touch of Silk Rosé too, just to match the rest of this amazing-looking Bugatti, the brake calipers seem to be a light grey shade with white lettering.

That light grey shade makes a return on the interior too, where smooth leather and luxurious Alcantara in a color called ‘Gris Rafalé’, are combined with Silk Rosé color-coded stitching on the seats, dashboard, doors, and steering wheel. The very light grey steering wheel might require some care to keep it clean, but such a light interior does look amazing … and the ‘Alice’ script on the headrests has been embroidered for maximum contrast., while a touch of ‘Silk Rosé’ also find it’s way onto the central console … or should we call it ‘arch’?

During the process of ordering this amazing Chiron Sport, the owner went from walking into the H.R.Owen Bugatti showroom in London to flying out to Molsheim’s unique headquarter in France for Bugatti, founded in 1909, even today every customer is invited to the Molsheim Experience, where they can get behind the wheel of the car they are looking to order. And go into a meeting with the Bugatti design and sales team to go through countless options and possibilities to create ‘their’ unique car, to create the dream.

The Chiron Sport represents a different character for the Chiron. As the French luxury brand’s interpretation of the ultimate super sports car, the Chiron Sport boldly offers a firmer chassis that provides even sharper handling and exhilarating agility. This comes from the introduction of more performance-orientated lightweight components, all without compromising the Chiron’s uniquely luxurious character. The Chiron Sport retains the iconic 8.0-liter W16 engine and is produced in the Atelier in Molsheim at a unit price $3,212,290 (or €2,650,000).
