Drive the Malibu coastline in the newest Bugatti Chiron L’Ébé
The stunning roads of the California coast are replete with the humming motors of exclusive sports cars. Now, you can add the newly-released Bugatti Chiron L'Ébé to your collection and cruise the coast in ultimate luxury!
L'Ébé Bugatti, Ettore Bugatti's daughter and eldest child, was very close to him, like a soul mate. Bugatti is now honoring her with a very special small series of three cars. For the final delivery of the Chiron and Chiron Sport in Europe, Bugatti's designers developed a Chiron and two Chiron Sport with the name L'Ébé. All three hand-crafted hyper sports cars bear unique details in the Art Deco style.
As the eldest child of Ettore and Barbara Bugatti, L'Ébé, born in 1903, had more insight into the extraordinary rise of Bugatti than anyone else. Ettore even chose to hide his own initials “EB” in her first name, so L'Ébé would not have to forgo the Bugatti surname even after marriage. In her later book, The Story of Bugatti, a biography of Ettore, she gave invaluable details into the history of the brand and of her father.
A Permanent Part of Company History
Now, L’Ébé has also become an important part of Bugatti history. The Chiron and Chiron Sport L’Ébé draw inspiration from her love of Art Deco style. Chiron’s character lines are mostly echoed in the famous Bugatti Type 57 G Tank that won Le Mans in 1937 – here on the L’Ébé those lines are accented in gold, shimmering against the exposed blue-tinted carbon body. Gold highlights also adorn the “EB” badging, the famous horseshoe grille and parts of the 8.0-liter W16 engine cover. Even the wheels come with an understated gold tint.
L’Ébé’s signature logo hides subtly on the underside of the retractable rear spoiler, as well as on the treadplates and hand-stitched into the headrests of the seats. The cabin subtly mirrors the exterior, with exposed blue-tinted carbon visible throughout and a light versus dark theme, hinting at L’Ébé’s dark blue body and gold highlights. The door panel on the driver’s side is finished predominantly in silk leather with lake blue highlights. The passenger’s door, meanwhile, reverses the color scheme. Each door panel features a motif of the visual evolution of Bugatti’s most iconic cars, from early Grand Prix racers through to EB110, Veyron and Chiron. L’Ébé’s numerous custom touches showcase Bugatti’s limitless creativity and craftsmanship when it comes to exclusive tailor-made projects.
Comfort, Usability and Reliability
“L’Ébé Bugatti’s biography of her father consists of numerous diary entries by Ettore himself, letters from his early employees, customers, business partners and her own experiences. It helps a lot to understand Ettore’s personality, his goals and the appreciation everyone had for him and his products,” said Christophe Piochon, president of Bugatti Automobiles. “With this knowledge we could transmit the Bugatti DNA into the present while maintaining the essence, grade of perfection and quality standards up to this day.
“Through this unique configuration and use of her name for the final Chiron and Chiron Sport, we wanted to honor her (L’Ébé) with the status she deserves in our brand’s history.”
The Bugatti Chiron, introduced to the world in 2016, was the first production car to deliver 1,500 PS of power, creating an entirely new sector of hyper sports car performance. Its 8.0-liter W16 quad-turbocharged engine, advanced four-wheel-drive system and lightweight chassis set new standards not just for acceleration, top speed and handling but also for comfort, usability and reliability.
It has since become the template for a number of different evolutions of the Bugatti hyper sports car, including Chiron Sport, Chiron Pur Sport and Chiron Super Sport. The three exclusive Bugatti Chiron L’Ébé marks the end of Chiron and Chiron Sport in Europe. The price of the newest addition to the Bugatti line is US$3.1 million.
