Bugatti has made its 200th Chiron, leaving 300 more to go in its 500 production target.
In 2016, Bugatti showed the world their replacement for the legendary Veyron luxury hypercar at the Geneva Motor Show. It was called the Chiron, and it had an utterly astound 1,479 horsepower from an 8.0-L quad-turbo W16 engine. Zero to sixty was measured at just 2.3 seconds thanks to all-wheel-drive and a quick-shifting 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, and top speed was limited to 261 mph.
We’re pretty sure that the Chiron could go faster if the limiter were ever removed, but Bugatti refuses to take the Chiron’s training wheels off.
That hasn't seemed to stop people from buying the Chiron, as Bugatti celebrates its 200th Chiron produced. And it's a special Chiron too: the Chiron Sport "100 Ans Bugatti" limited edition.
Only 20 100 Ans Bugatti editions will be made, and each will celebrate Bugatti's heritage with the Frech flag's colors on the side mirrors, fuel filler cap, and beneath the active rear wing. On the inside, the same red, white, and blue theme can be seen on the headrests, backs of the seat, and steering wheel.
On the outside, a Steel Blue matte finish covers the carbon fiber bodywork and even the bare carbon is colored the same hue.
"You can't feel anything but pride when you see this 200th Chiron emerge from the factory," said Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann in a statement. "Also, this model marks the celebration of our company history and recalls our French heritage. The different shades of blue used on this Chiron Sport lend it a timeless elegance."
Each Chiron takes 10 months to build and another 8 weeks for final assembly and customization. In 2017, Bugatti made just 70 of these $3 million cars, with 76 made in 2018. The French carmaker expects to make over 80 this year.
And if you’re one of the 0.1% of people capable of affording such a car, Bugatti still has 100 order slots available. Just sayin’.
