But in case it's just not as fancy and exclusive enough for your spectacularly valuable vehicle collection, it's worth having a quick gander at this: the Chiron Sport 110 ans Bugatti.

There aren't any mechanical upgrades, so the "110 ans Bugatti" is forced to make do with the same 1,500hp and 1,180lb ft as the standard Chiron Sport's 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 produces, although it also benefits from the same 18kg weight saving over the standard auto thanks to all that carbon fibre.

In fact, the underside of the rear spoiler proudly displays the French flag, signaling a patriotic salute every time it activates to provide extra aero for the driver.

The auto flies the French flag proudly - or the French flag's tricolours at least - in various places, including on the side mirrors, rear wing, steering wheel and headrests.

Bugatti didn't name a price but considering the base Chiron Sport starts at 2.65 million euros (about RM12.2 million) before taxes and options, it won't come cheap. The rear end is dominated by the diffuser and bumper in glossy steel blue carbon with the contrasting matte black exhaust system. The sports steering wheel combines matte carbon-fibre with a blue leather cover. The lightweight material is also found on numerous trim pieces, while the rest of the interior is treated to Deep Blue leather.

A specially crafted medallion, meanwhile, is sited in the central console stowage space, fashioned from solid silver with enamel inserts and set on a carbon-fibre plate. The Type 10 was light, small and nimble with an adequate power output - an agile racing vehicle with function following form in an uncompromising way.

The Chiron is, to put it mildly, a rather special vehicle.

Performance figures stay the same, with the Chiron Sport's 8.0 litre quad-turbo W16 engine serving up 1,479 hp (1,500 PS) and 1,600 Nm of torque. Power goes to all four corners via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and the auto will complete the 0-100 km/h sprint in under 2.5 seconds. This is an industrial product of considerable artistic merit. "The design element also establishes a link to the historic Type 57 SC Atlantic, which is now one of the world's most valuable cars", says Achim Anscheidt, Chief Designer of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. The special model celebrating the 110anniversary of the brand's existence in France keeps up this tradition.
