This Is The First Bugatti Chiron We've Seen Listed With A Dealer

This is one way to jump the queue.

The first Bugatti Chiron deliveries began at the start of last month, when three models left the French carmaker's Atelier in Molsheim. Up to 70 units are expected to leave Bugatti's production plant this year, with the remaining 200 units that have already been ordered to be rolled out during 2018 and 2019. Those looking to jump the queue will have to rely on dealers, and it appears that German firm Auto Seredin has a Chiron that it claims will be available in the second quarter of 2018.

In its current state, the Chiron is finished in Blanc (white) with French Racing Blue highlights, with 8,000-Euro turquoise carbon and liquid silver wing mirrors, a 15,000-Euro carbon-fiber engine cover, a 50,000-Euro leather and carbon-fiber interior finished in "Gris Rafale" (French for "Gray Burst") with French Racing Blue trim. The distinctive diamond-cut "Caractere" wheels finished in the same blue hue with black calipers are another 63,000-Euro optional extra as are the 25,000-Euro "Comfort" seats. While the Chiron comes priced from 2.4 million Euros, the German dealer is asking for 3.57 million Euros, which is a considerable markup despite the glut of optional extras.

That said, if buyers don't like what the dealer has done with the Chiron, they have the choice to configure it however they please. What they can't change is the Chiron's 8.0-liter, W16 quad-turbocharged engine, rated at 1,500 horsepower and 1,107 lb-ft of torque, or its ability to rocket from 0-62 mph in under 2.6 seconds. It's capable of reaching 310 mph according to its speedometer, but Bugatti has limited it to 261 mph.
