Bugatti’s latest limited-edition variant of its Chiron model, the ‘Les Legendes Du Ciel’, celebrates the marque’s links to some of the former early 20th century aviators that piloted its early race cars. This has led to an interior trim design of a decidedly bespoke nature.
The company uses Gaucho leather for the entire vehicle interior, stating that the light brown leather is reminiscent of the natural leather in vintage aircraft. The natural material is contrasted only by aluminum trims, while an aluminum inlay with the logo ‘Les Légendes du Ciel’ is found on the headrests.
It is on the door panels where things get interesting, with hand-sketched racing scenes between a Nieuport 17 aircraft and a Bugatti Type 13, in recognition of the machinery piloted by Bugatti’s early drivers. The Nieuport 17 was a French biplane aircraft built from 1916 and was very popular with its pilots due to its reliability, speed, agility and maneuverability. The Type 13 meanwhile was the first model to bear the name Bugatti, and was produced in 1910.
