With the Veyron, Bugatti set a precedent for building roofless hypercars, but it seems that's changing with the new 1500-horsepower Chiron.
, at least. Bugatti sales and marketing head Dr. Stefan Brungs spoke with the British car site and said that neither a convertible nor a roadster version of the Chiron would be offered. Considering that the Veyron was offered without a roof as both the Grand Sport and Grand Sport Vitesse, this news comes as a bit of a surprise.
While the company could always change its mind in a few years, at least for now, it appears the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder will get to keep its title as the world's fastest convertible. When the Venom GT made its record 265-mph run back in April, we speculated that the "inevitable" Chiron roadster might be the car to eventually beat it.
Turns out, we were wrong. Really wrong. And now we're left to mourn the T-top Chiron that never was.
