The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport is powered by an eight-litre quad-turbocharged W16 engine but much of the performance capabilities are also the responsibility of the 21-inch wheels that the supercar runs on.
Imagine tearing down a road or track in one of the most capable race cars ever made, and the rear tyre begins to show signs of wear. Scary? To avoid any potentially dangerous situations, several Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport models in the United States have been recalled to check for a possible fault in the rear tyre that could lead to it cracking.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the United States, nine Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport models have been recalled to investigate a potential defect. While the number may appear insignificant, keep in mind that this is a very expensive supercar with a very exclusive customer base.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the rear tyres on the Bugatti could develop cracks after 4,000 kilometres. In the worst-case scenario, this could result in a loss of air pressure, which could spell disaster at high speeds in a car as capable as the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport.
It’s worth noting that no such incident, accident, or crash has been reported thus far, but the recall was prompted by the discovery of cracks in the tyres. So far, no one has been able to pinpoint why the cracks are appearing.
