A Saudi Prince Just Bought A Chiron And The Bugatti Vision GT Concept


We don't even want to know the total cost.

A Saudi Arabian prince has struck gearhead gold, buying both the Bugatti Chiron and the one-of Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concept car, with the automaker announcing the sale on Instagram. In case you were wondering the lucky and very wealthy royal is Prince Badr bin Saud, whose fortune was estimated to be in the range of $21 billion. Now when you have that much money you're not content with just any old Chiron. No, Saud wanted the Chiron that was shown off at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

Such a special request likely came with a special price, although we doubt an extra hundred thousand (or a few million) was an impediment to the prince's pursuit. The base price for a Chiron is $2.6 million. The base price for a one-off Bugatti designed for a video game is...well we have no idea. As expected Bugatti didn't release any details regarding the total cost of both cars. What we do know is that both the Chiron (although maybe not Saud's Chiron) and the Vision GT concept will be at Pebble Beach for the 2016 Concours d'Elegance. No word if the prince will be lurking in the crowd to watch over his prized possession but we wouldn't fault him if he was.
