APPLICABILITY

Bugatti Chiron Super Sport

 

BULLETIN OBJECT

The wheels must be replaced on the concerned vehicle.

 

DESCRIPTION

During the final production validation, it was observed a set of non-homologated rims 5B4 601 025 (Front Sport rims) and 5B4 601 026 (Rear Sport rims) had been configured and assembled to a Chiron Super Sport. These Chiron Sport rim types are not validated on Chiron Super Sport.

 

OPERATION

– Comply with the instructions in the chapter “General instructions” → page 27.
– Following the workshop manual instruction for every operation
– Cleanliness must be ensured all along the procedure.

Please follow the concerned vehicle list to perform the operation.

Replace the front and rear wheels and tighten them to the appropriate torque (Workshop manual > Chassis).

Check the tire pressures and adjust it if necessary.

Open a technical ticket to provide the serial number of the old and new wheels.

Old wheels sets must be sent back to the factory.

 


Chronology :

April 20, 2015 – Setting of the rim program for the Chiron as a Matrix in the Design Data Management System for the Chiron.

January 17, 2017 – Inclusion of the rim “”Leichtbaurad BBS”” as the third approved RIM in the Matrix for the Chiron.

April 20, 2020 – Inclusion of the rims “”Super Sport 300+”” and “”Super Sport”” as approved RIMS in the Matrix. Both rims are approved exclusively for the “”Super Sport 300+”” and “”Super Sport”” vehicles.

January 29, 2021 – In the meeting minutes of the Chassis Specialist Group, it is stated that the use of the “”Leichtbaurad BBS”” should also be implemented for the “”Super Sport””, and that the rim is “”releasable”” for this use.

February 10, 2022 – In the individualization meeting a first request for a “”Leichtbaurad BBS”” on a Super Sport came up (VIN VF9SW3V32NM , RoW vehicle) and was approved. Based on this configuration rules were extended.

Nevertheless, a technical release (including testing) and a documentation in the Design Data Management System never took place.

This is due to a negative influence on the aerodynamic behavior occurring in connection with the body shape of the vehicle derivative “”Super Sport”” greatly reduces downforce, which in Top Speed mode could possibly influence the lateral dynamic behavior of the vehicle in a dangerous manner.
