Want to Go 300 MPH for $4 Million?
Bugatti recently broke the 300 mph barrier that many people thought was impossible due to tire technology limitations. The company hit almost 305 mph in an orange and black Chiron. Seeing an opportunity to make some serious money off the accomplishment, Bugatti thought it best to sell the car that managed to make the run.
Well, not the exact car. That car was technically a prototype, but it will now enter production. The vehicle’s name is the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. Bugatti will make only 30 of the vehicles and slap a well-warranted $3.9 million price tag on them. Bugatti offered the car to its top clientele and the 30 build slots sold out immediately. The company will now build those cars and deliveries should begin in 2021, according to GTSpirit.
The car will be “visually based on the record-breaking car,” according to Jalopnik. It won’t be the exact spec as the prototype that made the 300 mph run. With that said, the car will receive a 100 hp bump. That will make the total for the vehicle be 1,600 hp.
Jalopnik reported that the cars will not be electronically limited to 261 mph as the regular Chiron is. It’s unclear at this time if there’s an electronic limiter at all. In terms of styling, the company has a vehicle that is very much like the actual prototype in the looks department. We would also expect much of the aerodynamic tweaks used in the prototype to appear here.
