Real photos this time. None of that iPotato crap. Even still, photos don’t do this thing justice. It looks so elegant in person.

For those who didn’t see my earlier post, there’s a Chiron at Christie’s in Rockefeller Center. The president of Bugatti happened to be there this morning to showcase the Chiron to existing Veyron owners, so I managed to sneak a few precious shots of the interior.

If you look closely, you can see how the rear haunch disappears near the aluminum swoosh, before reappearing on the inside of the air intake.

That floating spine is the coolest design flair. It’s not structural; they just did it because it looks cool. Wish Chevy could have done the same on the Stingray.

Overall impression: this thing feels special. I’ve seen/photographed four LaFerrari’s, four P1's, and at least ten 918 Spyders, but the Chiron feels like a whole new level of prestige and elegance. It’s not pretending to be a track weapon. It’s just a superpowered luxury GT in an exquisitely tailored suit.
