Seven Veyrons and two Chirons are vying for your attention at Goodwood.
With such a diverse selection of cars on display from vintage race cars to a fleet of Ferraris celebrating the Prancing Horse’s 70th anniversary, it’s not easy to stand out at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. Unless, that is, your car has a Bugatti badge. As the manufacturer of some of the most insanely powerful cars in the world, Bugatti needs no introduction. True to form, the French automaker has brought a mind-bending 9,404-horsepower to the prestigious event.
Displayed on 700 square meters of lawn are eight of the finest examples from Bugatti’s recent past. Unsurprisingly, the Veyron is well-represented. Attendees at the festival can marvel at seven Veyrons in the metal including a rarely seen prototype from 2005 and a 2007 aluminum and carbon Pur Sang, both of which pack 1,001-hp. There’s also a 1,200-hp Super Sport World Record Edition, and a Grand Sport Vitesse which holds the record for the fastest roadster. The Veyron’s new successor is also being showcased. For many, this will be the first chance to check out the 1,500-hp Chiron up close. Two examples of the production-ready Chiron are vying for your attention.
One represents the first UK customer example, while the other travelled to Goodwood direct from Bugatti’s Molsheim headquarters where it will tackle the famous hill climb driven by legendary Le Mans winner Andy Wallace. We can’t think of a more fitting celebration of speed than this.
