The purpose (if you can call it that) of the endeavour is to deploy the 8.0-liter W16’s 1,577hp and 1,600Nm in such a manner that the Chiron would trace ‘a perfect arc that would form the famous Bugatti C-line when viewed from above’.

“The controllability of the Chiron Pur Sport’s all-wheel drive is outstanding,” said Bugatti's driver, Sven Bohnhorst. “You, the driver, decide, if you want to slip the rear axle to make the car turn or if you want to stabilise it with more slip at the front, solely by balancing it with the throttle.
