Bugatti has successfully marked one fifth of the Chiron’s 500 unit manufacturing run.
Bugatti is celebrating the production and delivery of the 100th Chiron hypercar. This week, the car left Bugatti’s headquarters in Molsheim, Alsace, where the company has been handcrafting Chirons since the end of 2016.
The 100th Chiron goes to a (super wealthy) customer from the Arabian Peninsula, who has opted for a bespoke configuration. The outer skin of the car consists entirely of dark blue carbon, supplied with a matt finish for the first time. Italian red lines on the sides and mink black wheels create a pronounced contrast with the overall colour of the car. The full-leather interior has red as the dominant colour. The price of this very Chiron is about €2.85 million (~₹22.82 crore).
Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles congratulated the owner saying, 'I find the 100th Chiron especially pleasing. It is dynamic and elegant in equal measure. This car shows that Bugatti produces highly individualized masterpieces of automobile craftsmanship that are simply unparalleled.'
At the same time, Winkelmann expressed his pride in the Bugatti team that produces these extraordinary super sports cars with passion and professionalism. With extremely well-filled order books, production of the Chiron is running at full speed. About 70 cars leave the Bugatti factory every year. Only 500 Chiron vehicles in total are to be produced.
To recap, the Bugatti Chiron replaced the legendary Veyron in 2016. The Chiron extracts its mechanical muscle from an 8.0-litre, W16 quad-turbo engine that churns out 1,479bhp of power and 1600Nm of torque. It sprints from 0 to 100km/h in just 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 420km/h, which is restrained by tyres and not the car itself.
