Rare Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport Crashes Into Toyota Corolla

Crash / Comments

Only 60 examples are entering production.

With customer deliveries of the track-focused Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport now underway, we're starting to see some examples hit the road. Only 60 examples are rolling off the production line, and one of them has already been involved in an unfortunate accident. This wasn't a customer car, however. According to an Instagram post by krn_speed, the Chiron Pur Sport involved in the accident was a Bugatti-owned demo car being driven across the US for media events and test drives for prospective customers.

Details about the accident are scarce, but photos and a video show the aftermath of the accident, which happened in St.Louis, Missouri on either April 1 or April 2.

Allegedly, the Chiron Pur Sport was being taken on a test drive by a client who got overexcited by the Chiron's colossal power.

The Chiron Pur Sport was reportedly being driven over the speed limit on a highway, which is easy to do when you have 1,500 horsepower to play with. After the driver lost control and failed to stop in time for traffic in front, the two-tone grey and black Chiron Pur Sport rear-ended a Toyota Corolla. Photos shared on social media and a video recorded by a passer-by show the two cars stopped by the side of the road as police attend to the accident to find out what happened.

Luckily, nobody was hurt in the collision, but the Corolla's rear bumper was badly dented. The good news is that the damage to the Chiron Pur Sport is relatively minor. But since it costs around $3.5 million, it won't be cheap to repair. While the Chiron Pur Sport doesn't look like it suffered any major damage, grass and debris that got stuck to the front bumper caused around $200,000 worth of damage to the carbon fiber, but these details have not been verified.
