Bugatti Still Has About 100 Chirons Left, New Buyers Will Have To Wait Until 2022

Bugatti has revealed that less than 100 units of the Chiron hypercar are still available for sale.

The French car manufacturer unveiled the successor to the iconic Veyron back at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016, and in the three years since, has delivered a touch over 180 examples. According to Car and Driver, 46 of them reside in North America, while a further three years of production has already been accounted for.

“This means that less than 100 out of the 500 units are still available,” Bugatti communications director Tim Bravo commented.

What this means is that anyone who places an order for one of these 100 remaining Chiron models won’t take delivery of their hypercar until 2022 at the earliest. Buying a vehicle like this isn’t just expensive but, evidently, also requires a lot of patience.

According to Bugatti North American marketing manager Cedric Davy, Chiron buyers typically spend $350,000 on optional extras – not that surprising, really, considering its pricing that, in the U.S., starts at $2,998,000 and rises to $3,260,000 for the limited-edition Chiron Sport.

Bugatti presented the Chiron Sport at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show and, according to Bravo, it is currently building more Sport models than “regular” Chirons. Both use a quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine pumping out 1500 hp, but the Sport features new aerodynamic elements as well as tweaked suspension and torque-vectoring systems aimed at crisper handling.

Based on what happened with the Veyron, it is likely that a number of the remaining 100 Chiron models will be limited-editions.

    Hard pass. Even if I was a billionaire, a Chiron would not be in my dream garage. You could get a McLaren 720S or Ferrari Pista for what typical buyers spend on optional extra’s in a Chiron and either of them would be a more engaging drive.

      If you were a billionaire and you didn’t like the looks of it then I would understand. If you were a billionaire, you wouldn’t be thinking in terms of value because you can afford all three. And would know that the Chiron would be a good investment compared to the other two. And you would want something others can’t have to stand apart from everyone else.

    Reading how exorbitantly high price of these kind of ultra expensive hypercars, I remember a joke with my friends when we talk about things that we will never be able to afford: “Even if you live until 100 years old, then you die, then you live again to live for another 100 years, then you die again and live again for another century, and repeat it 10 times, you still can’t afford it at your 10th life…” LOL….

    So yeah, I just need to be happy with what I have now, instead of being unhappy with what I don’t have. 😂😂
