A success story of Bugatti Chiron
It has been a great year for Bugatti, as 70 units of the Chiron have been delivered to consumers across the world, helping the Molsheim-based automaker reach their target.
Over 300 units of the hypercar have been promoted until now, regardless of a price in excess of $2.5 million. As Bugatti has announced that it will restrict production to 500 units, this means that there are 200 still left for potential consumers.
“It is a remarkable success for the whole Bugatti group that we have already reached the target of 70 vehicles in the first whole year of production of the Chiron”, stated the brand’s CEO, Wolfgang Durheimer. “This outstanding performance is specifically important because we aim to keep the waiting times for our consumers as short as possible.”
Europe, where 43 percent of orders were registered, is Bugatti’s biggest market, after the United States and Canada with 26 percent. An additional 23 percent have come from the Middle East, whereas the Asia-Pacific region represents 8 percent.
Unveiled in the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the successor of the Veyron includes a 1,500 PS (1,479 hp) and 1,600 Nm (1,180lb-ft) 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine. It requires less than 2.5 sec to sprint from naught to 100km/h (62mph), though its top speed has yet to be revealed.
