late last year bugatti launched its own bespoke division, sur mesure, giving customers the opportunity to take customizing their 200-plus-mph missiles to the extreme. the first product of the sur mesure program was a baby-blue chiron pur sport with red accents that honored louis chiron’s win at the 1931 french grand prix at the helm of a bugatti type 51. now bugatti has revealed two more of its sur mesure creations, another chiron pur sport and a chiron super sport hand-painted to mimic the way, as bugatti puts it, "the precisely designed body panels of the marque's hyper sports cars reflect light."
bugatti calls the paint jobs "vagues de lumière," meaning light waves. the chiron super sport is one of the first super sports to reach customers, and it arrives with a base finish in california blue. layered on top are swooping lines in arancia mira, an orange hue. this color also adorns the magnesium wheels—reminding us of the 2000s porsche 911 gt3 rs—as well as the leather interior. the number 38 is painted on the horseshoe grille "at the owner’s request," also in arancia mira.
despite the large rear wing, the chiron pur sport looks subtler, thanks to a blue-on-blue paint job. the body itself is exposed blue carbon, while the stripes flowing around the hypercar are a slightly lighter nocturne blue color. each end plate on the rear wing bears the french flag, and the number 9 is painted on the grille. the interior is decked out in a mix of beluga black and french racing blue leather. bugatti says that the paint schemes seen on these two chirons took around five weeks apiece and were hand-painted on. while the super sport’s orange-and-blue look might be a bit loud for some people's taste, the paintwork is stunning. we look forward to sur mesure’s next creation.
