Even more than Rolls-Royce, Bugatti represents extreme exclusivity in car form. Because Bugatti is supposed to be rarer and more performance. And what could be more exclusive than one Bugatti Chiron Super Sport? The unique Bugatti Super Sport “sur-mesur” of course! And this is exactly what the “golden age” is. The name indicates the end of an era, when Bugatti was powered exclusively by an internal combustion engine. In recognition of the rich history of the Molsheim-based brand.
Compared to the “ordinary” Bugatti Chiron Super Sport, the Golden Era distinguishes itself by the paintwork on its body, which took no less than 400 hours to complete. It transitions from deep black at the front to bright gold at the rear, with the transition beginning behind the front wheels. In addition, 45 emblematic hand-drawn patterns from Bugatti’s history have been applied to the sides. On the roof and hood, the tiger’s figure creates a relief in undulating form, as if the body was blown by the wind. In the passenger compartment, the passenger door is decorated with 26 Bugatti schematic diagrams, including the Type 41 Royale and Type 57 SC Atlantic, and the sill shows the years 1909-1956 of the first era of the brand. The driver receives 19 diagrams, including those for the EB110, Veyron, Chiron, Divo, Centodieci and La Voiture Noire as well as the years 1987-2023 of the second Bugatti era. But the car is also full of other symbolic details.

Future models designed and built in Molsheim are expected to be either electrified – still with the W16? – or exclusive electric, with technology from Rimac.
After the first era, which lasted from the creation of the brand in 1909 to its bankruptcy in 1956, and the second, which began in 1987 with the creation of the EB110 for acquisition by the Volkswagen Group, the year 2023 marks the end of a cycle and 2024 will be the beginning of a new one, with the introduction of The replacement for the current Chiron. The value of the unique Bugatti Chiron Super Sport Golden Era is invaluable, which took more than two years of work and consultation between the customer and Bugatti’s Sur Mesure program designer teams, but there is no doubt that the customer in the version paid more than the €3.2 million that it cost.
