Can you guess the lucky megastar?
We have been assured that the Bugatti Chiron, despite the problems with Volkswagen, is still on track to hit production and make its official debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Of course there’s a lot of time between now and March 2016. When it comes to limited edition supercars, the companies that make them don’t exactly wait to start taking orders. Case in point: Dutch DJ Afrojack has reportedly already put in his order for the all-new Chiron, having purchased his after a private viewing recently held in London.
If you speak Dutch then this interview of Afrojack, where he talks about the Chiron preview, is worth a watch. Should you not speak Dutch then you’re out of luck. Join the club.
The fact that Bugatti is already taking down orders means the Chiron must be close to ready. We’ve already heard rumblings that the Chiron will look like a less bonkers version of the GT concept, a fact we’re more than okay with. When it comes to power there could be up to 1,500 horses and a top speed of 286 mph from a hybrid W16 engine complete with electric turbochargers. As for the price, well it’s probably going to be astronomical given the tech, performance and limited production run. Afrojack—and others on the pre-sale list—care to confirm or deny these power figures and would you mind letting us know a ballpark estimate of the supercar’s cost?
