Blue and red example headed to the Middle East
Bugatti has celebrated the production and delivery of its 100th Chiron, marking one fifth of the hypercar's 500-unit manufacturing run.
Number 100 will be delivered to a customer from the Arabian Peninsula, finished in a matte dark blue carbon – it's the first time a matte version of this colour has been supplied – accented by Italian red side lines. Inside, the vehicle's cabin is dominated by red leather.
According to the marque, this particular example is worth around €2.85 million ($4.41 million).
"This car shows that Bugatti produces highly individualised masterpieces of automobile craftsmanship that are simply unparalleled."
Power in the Chiron comes from an 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine, producing a mammoth 1103kW of power and 1600Nm of torque. Drive is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Officially, the Chiron's road speed is electronically limited to 420km/h - largely as a matter of protecting the tyres against a blowout - and Bugatti promises a 0-100km/h sprint time of "less than" 2.5 seconds.
Bugatti says production of the Chiron is "running at full speed", with around 70 units leaving its factory each year.
A total of 500 Chirons will be manufactured, meaning the French hypercar is already one fifth of its way through its production run.
