While we'll see the first Bugatti Chiron review on the new season of Top Gear that just debuted, potential customers will have to wait until the the end of March to get a chance for a test drive. But not knowing what's it like behind the wheel of Bugatti's $2.6 million hypercar hasn't stopped 250 customers from ordering their own.
Of the 250 examples that have already been spoken for, 37 percent of orders came from Europe, followed by North America with 30 percent and the Middle East accounting for 26 percent of orders to date. With the first three customer Chirons on their way to their lucky buyers, the Bugatti Atelier's annual output remains at 70 units, meaning that the remaining 246 orders will keep them busy at least until 2020.

And with half of the Chirons gone, Bugatti will proudly present another customer car built for somebody "from the German-speaking region" at the Geneva Motor Show tomorrow, mostly to show off their new exposed carbon fiber color "Bleu Royal." And royal blue it is.
With this option, Bugatti customers can now choose between a total of eight naked carbon colors including black, grey, turquoise, blue, green, brown, red and now also Bleu Royal. The German-speaker who went for the latter also chose a two-tone interior to max out the Smurf experience, with acres of deep blue and French racing blue leather providing maximum comfort at 261 miles per hour. Bugatti says this buyer even spent one day in Molsheim working on the car. Talk about some high class wrenching.
