Small tweaks mean big fanfare at Bugatti. By adding four exhaust gases, a car dryer and some retired suspension to Chiron earlier this year, it became a brand new version: Chiron Sport. Now Molsheim is on it again.

In particular, two 65 cm x 44 cm glass panes are inserted into the 261 mph hyperlifting roof, each side of the central Bugatti line. That's it. No built-in stargazing telescope.

The first Chiron equipped with Sky View windows will be featured at Pebble Beach Contests in California next month. Most sunbeds add only a couple of hundred quid to the car's price, especially when they do not electronically withdraw, so we expect this to be a cheap alternative for the road of 2.5 million.
