Production of the Chiron at the brand’s headquarters in Molsheim started in the autumn of 2016. The first vehicles were delivered in March this year, while the first American Chiron landed at Pebble Beach in August. Being Bugatti's second most important market after Europe, America gets VW's best for $2.998 million including shipping, duties, taxes and charges.
The first US Chiron features a two-tone yellow and black color scheme inside and out, rolling on Bugatti's "Claissique" wheels.
Currently, the brand has more than 300 orders, 43 percent of which came from Europe, 26 percent from North America (USA and Canada) and 23 percent from the Middle East. The Asia-Pacific region accounts for the remaining eight percent.
The Chiron is limited to 500 units, and while the first seventy were finished under Wolfgang Dürheimer's supervision, the rest will be Stephan Winkelmann's responsibility. The former Lamborghini and Audi Sport boss starts at Molsheim in January.
