Not surprisingly, it was one of the first Chirons delivered worldwide.
Only 500 are slated for production and Bugatti doesn’t seem to be having too much trouble finding buyers. 2017 proved to be a very good year with 70 Chirons delivered. But there’s already at least one owner who wants to part with their car, hence it heading to RM Sotheby’s Paris auction next month. This particular Bugatti Chiron is finished in the same color and paint scheme as the display model shown at the official premiere in Geneva back in 2016.
The two-tone Atlantic Blue over French Racing Blue livery exterior and brown leather with contrast quilt stitched interior is absolutely stunning, especially in the flesh. Some of this car’s options include a carbon fiber steering wheel and Maritime Blue brake calipers. Delivered to its first owner only last April and one of the first Chirons delivered worldwide, it has just 621 miles on its odometer. At least some of those miles, however, are test mileage performed by the factory before it was shipped out. Buying a brand Bugatti Chiron today costs at least 2.4 million euros, and that’s without any extras. RM Auctions estimates this Chiron will bring in somewhere between 3.2 million and 3.6 million euros.
We doubt the current owner would be willing to sell the car at a loss, so there’s likely some profit here. How come? Because there’s a new Chiron wait list, and those with the means will be willing to pay a premium to drive the hypercar home on the day of the auction.
