Only 30 are being built – and this one could be yours.
Bugatti shocked the auto industry when a modified Chiron became the first car to break the 300-mph barrier. To celebrate this monumental achievement, the automaker launched the limited-edition Chiron Super Sport 300+ inspired by the prototype that set the incredible speed record.
Production is limited to 30 units, but despite the high starting price of €3.5 million ($3.9 million), every model has already been sold. Inevitably, it hasn't taken long for someone to take advantage of the Chiron Super Sport's exclusivity.
German dealer Auto Salon Kitzbuhel is selling a build slot via Mobilefor a staggering €4,680,000 ($5,204,610) – that's around $1.3 million more than the original asking price. This isn't the first time someone has tried to flip a limited-edition hypercar for a profit, and it won't be the last. It wasn't long ago when a Koenigsegg Jesko build slot was spotted for sale for around $4 million.
According to the sales listing, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ will be available from November 30. Powering the Super Sport is a 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine uprated to 1,600 horsepower – that's 100 more hp than the regular Chiron.
With this setup, the Chiron Super Sport will sprint from 0-60 mph in just 2.4 seconds and reach an electronically limited top speed of 273.4 mph. It also has an extended and aerodynamically optimized body with air curtains installed at the car's front corners, air outlets on the wheel arches directly behind the front wheels, and a longer rear end that reduces the aerodynamic stall by over 40 percent. As standard, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ is finished in black with orange racing stripes just like the Veyron Super Sport before it.
If you missed out on the initial allocation, this might be your only chance to own the Chiron Super Sport 300+ because Bugatti isn't planning to build any more examples.
