When Ettore Arco Isidoro Bugatti opened the doors of his exclusive, eponymous street race car brand to the public in 1909 no one could have predicted the unparalleled innovation and advancement his brand would bring to the automotive industry over the next 100 years. The late Italian-born, French-raised automobile designer’s company has just released what is considered to be the fastest, most luxurious and expensive production super sports car in the world, the Chiron.
Bugatti which produces just one hypercar model at a time, has moved on from the Veyron 16.4, ushering the next generation of super sports car with the unveiling of the Chiron at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
While the Chiron’s predecessor possessed a 1,000 horsepower engine when it was launched in 2005, Bugatti’s newest nearly 2,000 kilo monster of an automobile boasts a beastly a 8.0-litre, quad-turbo W16 motor and taps out at just under 1,500 hp (precisely 1,478 hp).
Production of Bugatti’s newest model will be limited, with just 500 cars in total. With 150 of these cars already reserved, roughly two thirds of their total production remain available for purchase — for the cool price of 2.3 million euro the Chiron could be yours.
