Bugatti is known to make legendary cars for over a century now. The latest in the list of stars is the Bugatti Chiron. Built as a coupe, when the two-seater 16-cylinder 400+kmph rocket-for-the-road gets a bespoke sunroof, it is news. And in typical Bugatti fashion, they are calling it the ‘Sky view’.
For an almost 3 million dollars car, whatever the Sky view costs, would be added change. But what it adds is almost 27mm of extra headroom. But that is not the point. The Sky view is made up of two glass panels fixed on each side of the central spine of the Bugatti, something that reminds us of the Type 57 Atlantic coupe. Yes, the one from Ralph Lauren’s collection.
It is built from four layers of lightweight glass laminated together. As per Bugatti, they have been designed to keep the wind noise at bay and its tinted glass will keep the furtive glances of bystanders away. It also filters infrared radiations to keep the cabin cool, because moon-roof just adds unnecessary weight.
The first of the Chirons to be fitted with the Sky view will debut at the Concours de Elegance at the Pebble Beach mid-August and only then shall we know how much it costs as an optional extra.
