Clear Carbon Bugatti Chiron Shows Clean Spec, Has Blue Seat

Why hide the carbon body of the Bugatti Chiron under paint? This is a question the owner of this W16 monster certainly asked when configuring the vehicle.

Sure, this isn't the first clear carbon example of the Molsheim machine we get to feast our eyes on. However, the ones I've checked out in the past all came with accent colors on the body, while the example sitting before us is different.

So while a strong shade of blue is featured on the brake calipers and the rear wing, most of the 1,500 hp monster's body shows no such thing, with the resulting approach being uber-clean.

And since I mentioned blue, I'll add that the color also made its way inside the car, where it covers the passenger seat (it's not clear if the driver's seat packs a different finish or uses a cover).

A Bugatti Chiron is the kind of car that will set one back $3 million, but who grabs such a monster while skipping the options? Speaking of which, the clear carbon finish of the speed demon is said to cost $500,000, which could buy one a Lamborghini Aventador S with decent cash left to spare on options.

For the sake of comparison, you'll find three videos at the bottom of the page. The first brings along the Chiron we've been talking about, while the other two showcase the said accent color-happy examples of the quad-turbo animal.

This is a brilliant opportunity to remind everybody that the Chiron is no longer alone on the Bugatti lineup, even though its mates are based on it. I'm refering to the Divo (40 examples being built), the Centodieci (let's bring that back to 10 units) and, of course, the La Voiture Noire - the latter is a one-off, which set a new record for the most expensive new car (think: $19 million). Oh, and let's not forget the 30 units of the Chiron Super Sport 300+, which friends call The Longtail.
