First Bugatti Chiron Landed In America For Cool $2.998 million
Owner of the First Bugatti Chiron in America Could Buy 30 911’s Instead
Published August 28, 2017
The US finally got their first Bugatti Chiron. Delivered for the first US customer, the first Chiron at the US soil appeared at the Pebble Beach Monterey Car Week. It is hard to find a better spot for a car of this status to show its flesh.
And it’s yellow. Well, half of it at least as the other half of this Bugatti Chiron sports Nocturne black finish. Two tone paint continues on the inside as well. The Chiron received fine yellow seat with black inserts. Black covers much of the dash as well. Honestly, we would not have thought that this bumblebee setup would look that appealing on a Chiron. But here it is. And it’s exquisite.
First Bugatti Chiron in the US carries quite a heavy price tag. Officially, the car fetches a price of $2.988 million. You could buy 30 (yes, thirty) Porsche 911 Carrera cars for the money. But then again, in that case, you’d be just a douche with a Porsche. And now, the buyer is a highway god with a Bugatti.
Bugatti Chiron Is The Fastest Thing Ever Limited To 261 mph
The Almighty operates an insane eight-liter quad-turbo W16 engine developing 1,479 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque. Easily enough to shame anything imaginable coming its way. Such power channeled to all four wheels accelerates the coupe to 62 mph in 2.4 seconds and up to an electronically limited speed of 261 mph. It always seems silly to write Chiron top speed. I mean, 261 mph. C’mon.
Although this is the first Bugatti Chiron to mark the US soil, a Volkswagen-owned company has a whole lot more to deliver here. After all, the USA is the second biggest market for the Chiron (after Europe of course). One-third of all ordered cars will find their way here. Apparently, Bugatti received 250 orders (out of a 500-car production run) and 75 of the cars were spoken for from America. Can’t wait to see the rest.
