With just 500 units of Bugatti’s newest monster hitting the assembly line, capturing one on camera out in the open, is nearly impossible, yet alone four examples.
However, these are not production cars, but prototypes that were on their way to Arjeplog, for winter testing. They were caught on video on the side of the road in a small Swedish village, called As, in Jamtland, in a small convoy with two VW vans appended on both ends.
Promising to reset the boundaries for hypercars, with no less than 1,500 horses coming from an updated W16 engine taken from the Veyron, the Chiron stole the limelight at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
Bugatti claims the Chiron takes just 2.5 seconds to go from naught to 100 km/h (62 mph) and to double that speed in 6.5 seconds, while it reaches 300 km/h (186 mph) in just 13.5 seconds. Keep the right pedal down and the odometer will eventually indicate 420 km/h (260 mph).
The VW-owned brand has managed to sell all 500 examples of the hypercar even before visitors at the Swiss even got a chance to see it live for the first time, despite a hefty price tag of $2.6 million.
