Bugatti has just built its 100th Chiron – and it's quite special!
A Middle Eastern owner has paid €2.85million for the latest example, which features a unique carbon-fibre finish
Production of the Bugatti Chiron has now hit 100 cars since starting in late 2016, with a €2.85million example delivered to a customer in the Middle East.
One of 70 built per year at Bugatti’s Molsheim headquarters in Alsace, with the finally tally for the Chiron expected to end with 500 cars, the 100th is destined for the Arabian Peninsula.

Last year, the 1479bhp Chiron set a record-breaking 0-400-0km/h time of just 41.96 seconds at the Volkswagen Group’s Ehra-Lessien circuit with former Formula 1 driver Juan Pablo Montoya behind the wheel.
In terms of specification, the 100th car’s bodywork is made up entirely of dark blue carbon-fibre and, for the first time, is presented in a matt finish. That is offset by the Italian red highlights on the side and a set of black wheels. The leather interior, meanwhile, is mainly red.
As RM Sotheby’s Paris Sale earlier in the year, a sub-1000km, Slovakian-registered Chiron sold for a record €3.32million.
Stephan Winkelmann, president of Bugatti Automobiles, said: ‘I find the 100th Chiron especially pleasing. It is dynamic and elegant in equal measure. This car shows that Bugatti produces highly individualized masterpieces of automobile craftsmanship that are simply unparalleled.’
The Chiron’s production is now ‘running at full-speed’, with the order books described as ‘well-filled’.
Spectators will get an opportunity to see a Chiron, plus its Veyron and EB110 forerunners, at the Prescott Hill Climb this weekend (May 26/27) as part of the 12th annual La Vie en Bleu pageant of French motoring excellence.
