The cars have been delivered to their affluent buyers in a show of flames and fireworks.
A couple of weeks ago, Bugatti announced that the first examples of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ were completed and would be heading out to their respective owners shortly. The Bugatti brand is very popular in America, despite the exorbitant costs associated with ownership, so it makes sense that the first customers to receive their deliveries are based in the US.
As a 'Bugatti Service Partner of Excellence,' Miller Motorcars had the privilege of delivering the vehicles, but not before the company put on a stunning unboxing show. Check it out in the video below to see what the lucky buyers are in for.
The owners of these vehicles took delivery in Greenwich, Connecticut, at Bugatti of Greenwich, a division of Miller Motorcars. The dealer's marketing manager Rick Ruiz tells Motor Authority that only one of the buyers will be keeping their special edition in the state, with the other buying residing elsewhere. Not that it matters - just 30 examples of these astounding technological and engineering marvels will be produced, so it's highly unlikely that you'll spot one on your daily commute, regardless of where you live. That said, Ruiz says that eight examples in total will be US cars, so you might catch one at a concours event or a cars and coffee meet at some point. We only wish we could experience the elation these buyers felt after ordering their vehicles in September 2019 and receiving them now, two years on.
Like all other current Bugatti products, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ is motivated by an enormous 8.0-liter W16 engine with four turbochargers. In this application, the power plant produces 1,577 horsepower, making a 0-60 time of just 2.4 seconds light work. Unlike the record-setting one-off model that achieved 300 mph, production cars are limited to 273.4 mph, but some reports claim that owners have been invited to join Bugatti test driver Andy Wallace at Ehra-Lessien, where the record was set. Here, the limiter can be removed and owners can be coached one-on-one as they explore the limits of the fastest production Bugatti yet.
