When the new Bugatti Chiron Sport made its debut earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, it was beyond our wildest dreams to be in the presence of one of the fastest, most powerful and most expensive cars in the world.
But dreams, sometimes, do come true and for most of us in the motoring media industry, that dream came true today.
As there are almost boundless possibilities on how to specify the car, the Bugatti Chiron Sport can be as expensive as your net worth allows it to be.
Prices start from a minimum of the 2.65 million Euros (approx. RM12 million) and that’s just a start. A carbon fibre roof, for instance, will set you back another 180,000 Euros (approx. RM 850k) and if your heart desires a new colour for the Chiron, it would be a six-figure job (in Euros of course).
But if you’re in such a fortunate situation to consider one, the Bugatti shopping experience will not be one to disappoint. Word is that it’s uncommon for a prospective buyer to be flown all the way to Bugatti’s headquarters – treated to the all exclusive delights that would mesmerise even the wealthiest of men and women – just for their consideration. Obviously, a test drive wouldn’t be excluded.
When the mind has been overpowered by what the heart wants, a handsome deposit that edges to the million Ringgit mark will be required just to confirm your burning desire to own one of the most exclusive cars man has ever created. Only 500 Chirons (Sport or Sport-less) will ever be made.
Its 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine makes 1,500 hp and 1,600 Nm of torque. 0 to 100 km/h is obliterated in just 2.5 seconds, 0.3 seconds faster than the fastest Porsche 911 ever made – the GT2 RS.
