Bugatti masterfully captures the essence of its rich racing heritage with the unveiling of the Chiron’s stunning ‘Special Type 59 Wimille’ aesthetic. Paying homage to the powder-blue Bugatti Type 59 driven by legendary Jean-Pierre Wimille in the 1935 Belgian Grand Prix, this new design immerses us in the exceptional lineage of Bugatti’s racing history.

The legacy of the Type 59 and Wimille seeps into the vehicle’s heart, manifesting in a visual identity marked by lavish Marronier Leather and a center line in the signature ‘Type 59 Wimille’ colour. This continuity of the exterior’s hues into the interior design ties the whole concept together, crafting a unique driving experience that merges modern luxury with a strong sense of nostalgia.
The Bugatti Chiron’s ‘Special Type 59 Wimille’ aesthetic is more than just a new design. It is a tribute to Bugatti’s illustrious racing heritage, and a testimony to their unparalleled craftsmanship.
