For Bugatti Chiron owners and prospects, the sky’s the limit for most things in life, so why not have a clear view of it? That’s now possible with the new “Sky View” option for the Chiron, which will be presented at the Monterey Car Week in California next month.

The Sky View option consists of two fixed glass panels in the roof of the Chiron, each 65 cm long and 44 cm wide, directly above the two seats. The panels have a newly developed laminated structure with thin glass and four intermediate layers.

Each layer meets individual requirements. Firstly, undesirable wind noise is reduced and secondly infrared radiation is reflected away. In addition, the glass is tinted to prevent dazzle effects and to protect occupants’ privacy. Finally, harmful ultraviolet (UVA and UVB) radiation is filtered out.

As a side-effect, the laminated design improves the stiffness of the roof panels. The structural properties of the Chiron, including the stiffness of the overall vehicle and crash safety, are maintained. Opt for the Sky View and you’ll also get 2.7 cm of extra headroom over the regular roof.

The 1,500 PS/1,600 Nm 16-cylinder beast made a recent pit stop in Malaysia. That car, a Chiron Sport with improved dynamics and plenty of carbon fibre, is priced from RM12.5 million before taxes and options. Also recently launched here is a more affordable version that you can assemble yourself.
