The fault itself is a rather rare one and as per NHTSA, the rear tyres on the Bugatti could develop cracks after around 4,000 kms. In the worst-case scenario, this could lead to loss in air pressure and in a car as capable as the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, may spell disaster at high speeds.

It is important to note here that no such incident, accident or crash has so far been reported but the recall itself was necessitated after cracks on the tyres started being observed. And thus far, the reason for the cracks appearing has not been identified.

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. It is reported that the solution for now is to have the tyres replaced with new ones after around 3,000 kms or 1.5 years. It is also reported that Bugatti will continue with the replacement policy till new tyres resistant to cracks are developed and installed.
