Bugatti Chiron's New 'Sky View' Lets Me See the Spot They're Holding for Me in Heaven

Kristen Lee Jul 26, 2018. 21 comments

Do you ever gaze at the stars and lose yourself in the never-ending potential of the open universe? About how there’s so much out there and anything’s possible? Have you ever done that while sitting in a Bugatti Chiron? Well, ya can now.

Bugatti has introduced a new option for the Chiron, called the Sky View, in which it will fit two glass panels to the roof of the car, right over the driver’s and passenger’s seats. Just look at that view now.

“But what about wind nooooooooise?” you moan. Fear not! Bugatti wouldn’t let anything as annoying as noise from the rushing wind ruin your ride; the panels are made with thin glass and four “intermediate layers” which will cut the sound.

“But what about UV raaaaaaays?” you moan. Fret not! Bugatti says that infrared radiation is reflected away from the inside of the car for maximum comfort. Nobody is wilting in a greenhouse on Bugatti’s watch. Also, UVA and UVB radiation is filtered out. Melanoma is for the poor.

“But what if a drone is spying on meeeeee?” you moan. Worry not! The glass has been tinted “to prevent dazzle effects” and also protects your privacy. The government won’t ever know what’s going on in your Chiron.

“But what about room for my heeeeeeead?” you moan. Stress not! The Sky View option gives you an additional 2.7 centimeters of headroom over the standard roof. Feel free to grow taller.

With this new roof, cast your gaze heavenwards. Look up, not down, as you too often do. Be at one with the universe. Be at one with all the unending potential that your money can bring.

Now that the 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette is real, we can spend the next few days and weeks poring over the specs, engaging in debates and looking at pictures of it.

It’s been 50 years since American astronauts landed on the moon, and it remains one of the single greatest achievements of modern human history. The moon, as it turns out, is really, really difficult to get to , and the fact that we pulled it off at all in 1969 is incredible. So incredible, in fact, that the very...

Where on Earth Did All the Lexus RX300s Vanish To? Where on Earth Did All the Lexus RX300s Vanish To?

In the year 2000, my mother traded in the family’s much-despised Audi A6 wagon (the thing was in the shop every month for some electrical gremlin or another) for a Lexus RX300. Ours was white, not champagne, and today I found myself thinking about where the hell they all went. That RX300 was the first time I’d experienced an...

It's About Time for Adult-Sized Car Beds to Become a Thing It's About Time for Adult-Sized Car Beds to Become a Thing

Brands hardly miss opportunities to make money, as evidenced by things like home-decor collections draped in logos of luxury carmakers with astronomical price tags. Brands do, however, often miss the opportunity to bring forth true social change with those cheap money grabs—like, for example, making race-car beds (or just car beds) socially acceptable after the age of 12.Bugatti announced...

None of You Are Invited to Get Trashed on My New Bugatti Champagne None of You Are Invited to Get Trashed on My New Bugatti Champagne

I love parties. You might not think this is true, but I do. I love everything about them: Choosing the space, deciding on the menu, selecting the alcohol, picking out the party favors, procuring the drugs. I’m throwing a new party to celebrate a new Bugatti champagne and you’re not invited. I would say sorry, but I’m just not.Champagne,...

There was a brief, glorious period in the mid-2000s when you actually had a choice of vehicles in what I’m going to call the Friendly Box segment: the original Scion xB, the Nissan Cube, the Kia Soul, and, I suppose the Honda Element. Of these, only the Soul survives to this day in the U.S., and I think that’s...

They call it the...

Automakers always try to highlight specific features of a new car as some sort of revolutionary innovation. It’s the process that gave us “dynamism .” Now there’s a new one; a designer just called the passenger footwell of the upcoming electric Porsche Taycan a “foot garage” with a straight face.Last week, Porsche released a likely-scripted interview with Michael Mauer,...

Chrome Door Edge Trim Is Terrible Chrome Door Edge Trim Is Terrible

I’m a believer that people should be able to do whatever they’d like to their cars. Modify them, redesign them, paint them, stripe them, slam them, raise them, whatever you want. It’s your car. That doesn’t mean I’m going to like everything one may do to their car, and that’s why today I want to call out one fairly...

In America, Chinese automakers tend to have a reputation for building poor-quality products.

That’s why I was so excited to see this old 1960 Popular Mechanics article about taillights, which is a deep dive into how taillights could be better, in an era when it seemed like the only goal was to see how much taillights...
