Bugatti, according to its officials, has delivered the 100th Chiron to a Middle East customer. With this, the car maker is one-fifth of the way through the planned 500-car production run. The 1,479 hp in the Chiron comes from an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W-16 that also makes 1,180 lb-ft of
torque, which comes on at just 2,000 rpm. Shifting duties for the two-seat Chiron are handled by a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and power is sent to all four wheels, said an automobile media report.
The automaker says that the exterior of the car consists entirely of a matte-finished dark blue carbon fiber save for the “Italian red” accents. The wheels are a hue called “mink black,” while the interior is a well-matched red-on-black. According to Bugatti, this specific example separated its Middle Eastern patron from 2.85 million Euros—$3.33 million at today’s exchange rates.
