Out of the 300 units sold, 70 Bugatti Chirons have been despatched to deep-pocketed clients around the world in 2017.
At £2 million apiece, the Bugatti Chiron is kind of a unique and very, very special automobile. To build just such a technical marvel, it definitely takes a heck of a lot of time and, as a result, the Chiron’s production is limited to 500 units. Bugatti has already sold 300 cars and 70 cars have been delivered to customers, meaning the company has hit its delivery target for 2017.
Besides meeting the annual production target, the Chiron seems to be doing pretty well among the wealthiest petrolheads of the world. Of the total cars that have already been spoken for, 43 per cent of the clients come from Europe, 26 per cent from North America, 23 per cent from Middle East and 8 per cent from the Asia-Pacific region. Considering the fact the production is constrained to just 70 units yearly at present, Bugatti has more than enough time to sell the remaining 200 units.
Also, finding new buyers for this hypercar won’t really require any additional sales push, for the Chiron’s mighty specs do the talking for itself. You see, the Bugatti Chiron draws power from an 8.0-litre, W16 quad-turbo that churns out 1,479bhp and 1600Nm of torque. 0-100km/h is dismissed in just 2.5 seconds and if you pin the throttle for few more seconds, you might as well hit a top speed of 420km/h – which is electronically limited because of its tyres. As per reports, the Chiron could hit 450km/h but there’re no street legal tyres that can cope up with that kind of force at the moment. Michelin is apparently developing a new set of tyres for the Chiron, so expect to see an unrestricted speed run by the mighty Chiron sometime in 2018.
