The Only Bugatti Chiron “Zebra” Seen On The Street In Paris

Posted on

There are only 500 Chirons ever made by Bugatti. Of those, 300 have been built and delivered to their owners since March 2021. One of them comes with the eye-catching Zebra-like livery, which was spotted in Paris. You can watch the meeting in the video embedded above courtesy of Tim Burton aka Shmee150.

The Chiron “Zebra” sits side by side with an equally attractive supercar, a Porsche 918 Spyder with a Weissach package that sports a similar pattern on its body. Both striped cars have California license plates.

The identity of the one-time Chiron is still a mystery. It first appeared in 2019, seen while still wearing the protective film for the badge and some bodywork. While not confirmed, the custom Chiron looks like the successor to the Veyron (see embedded social media post above) sporting the same paint, dubbed “Le Saphir Bleu” by its owners.

On the Chiron in the video above, the details are much clearer on the metal. Even the W16’s engine cover is painted the same color, while the seats match the exterior scheme. While we understand that this is a polarizing display, it is. The car owner has the right to do so.

The bespoke paint is called “Vagues de Lumière.” It was created in close collaboration with Bugatti’s Sur Mesure team, with an intricate hand-painted pattern that mimics the way light reflects off the body of the Chiron Super Sport. In “Le Saphir Bleu”, the cracks in the blue paint are said to represent reflections in the sapphire.

One of the first Bugatti Chiron Super Sport customer shipments in April came with this striped paint.
