    As some of you may already know, once again, Bugatti is teasing us with a darkened version of this picture.

    Since it is obviously a eb110 (dauer), and since the centodieci is already a eb110 hommage, what should we expect?

    i can only think of two options:

    -they are buying back the Campogalliano factory to accomodate the production of a second model or/and make a museum of it.

    -they are opening a restauration division similar to Ferrari classiche.

    what do you think?

    Ps: any information about the rumored model at gims2020 is also welcome (Bugatti Nice?)

    Probably the same thing they're always up to -- putting body kits on Chirons so that they can actually sell them.

    The Bugatti to be presented in Geneva will be a new variant of the Chiron, I'm going to see her next week.

    lucky man! Do you think the eb110 teaser is a clue regarding this upcoming model?
    Or do you agree with my theories?

    From what I know it's not a teaser.
    And no this Variant has nothing to do with the EB110.
    I'm not going to see the car until next week, but a friend of mine who saw it a few days ago told me he was really impressed.

    Variant as in the Divo so a new body but still based on the Chiro or variant as in Chiron Sport so just an HP bump and a lighter battery..

    That’s a shame, shouldn’t all these lightweight options of the Chiron Sport and the new variant simply be standard on the Chiron, they’re not exactly extreme or justify a new model.

    I saw the car this week, personally I love it. I don't know if I'm allowed to talk a lot, but I find the car really successful, much more aggressive than the Chiron while keeping its elegance. Much more focused on aerodynamics and power-to-weight ratio. Also unlike the Chiron and Chiron Sport, it has a really cool fixed rear spoiler.

    Interesting, so a kind of more aggressive Divo? Or is it not a limited edition but a ‘standard’ model?

    The Divo and the Centodieci are Chiron reworked by Bugatti's Coachbuilding Division and are not attached to the Chiron, although of course they are based on it. So they are ultra limited collector's editions if you like.

    The Chiron Sport and the Chiron SuperSport are directly related to the Chiron, like this new model which also uses the Chiron name, they have specific performance goals, for example the Chiron SuperSport was built to break the 300 MPH barrier, and the Chiron Sport is for customers who want a sportier drive but still want the comfort of the Chiron. The new Variant has another purpose.

    I hope I've answered your question.

    thank you for sharing these informations!
    i hope you did not say too much.

    i can't wait to see that model but i am still wondering if the eb110 darkened picture was a teaser (not about a new model) or nothing at all...
