Bugatti has launched a special edition version of the Chiron, finished in exposed carbon fibre and priced at £2.56 million

This is the Bugatti Chiron Noire. It’s a special edition version of the French brand’s world-beating hypercar, which pays homage to the long-lost 1938 Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic. Priced at €3 million (around £2.56 million), the Chiron Noire features a range of styling revisions, the most notable being its exposed carbon fibre bodywork. Just 20 examples will be built.

Available in two specifications, the Chiron Noire Élégance is more comfort-focussed, featuring gloss-finish carbon fibre panelling, unique ‘Caractère’ alloy wheels, black brake calipers and an updated radiator grille bearing an exclusive black enamel badge. The underside of the Chiron’s active rear spoiler also sports a “Noire” inscription.

The Chiron Noire Sportive is the sports-focussed alternative to the Noire Élégance, and features matte-finish carbon fibre bodywork, an updated radiator grille, a new front splitter and alloy wheels, all finished in matte black. The car’s quad-exit titanium exhaust is also finished in black, along with parts of the engine cover.

Inside, both models are finished with black upholstery, black buttons and controls, and headrests embroidered with the “Noire” emblem. There’s an additional carbon badge set into the centre armrest and a pair of special edition “Noire” treadplates.

The Chiron Noire Élégance and Noire Sportive are powered by the standard Chiron’s quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine, which produces 1,479bhp and 1,600Nm of torque. Power is fed to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which offers a 0–62mph time of around 2.5 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 261mph.

Owners of the standard-issue Bugatti Chiron Sport can choose to upgrade their cars to the “Noire” specification of their choice for an additional €100,000 ( £85,000). First deliveries are expected to arrive during the second half of 2020.

Pop-up chargepoints solve urban electric car problems

A new type of pop-up chargepoint has been designed to give owners of electric cars who have to park their EVs on the street the ability to recharge at home. Although there have been great leaps forward in home and public EV charging in recent years, one major obstacle to EV ownership remains the fact that 43 per cent of UK households - equivalent to eight million cars and vans - do not have access to a driveway. With trailing leads across pavements being hazardous, and residents with no off-street parking ineligible for Government chargepoint grants, urban EV charging has long been a significant issue to overcome as the UK makes the switch to electric. Now, a British startup firm named Urban Electric has created a pop-up chargepoint that can be installed at the kerbside. The chargers deliver a 7kW charging rate, and are said to be suitable for 90 per cent of residential streets. The chargers are operated via a smartphone app and rise up out of the pavement only when needed, leaving..
