From the design to the limited production run, and from the engine and performance to the sticker price, there is nothing ordinary about the Bugatti Chiron.
The Veyron’s successor came out four years ago, and in the meantime, the range has been expanded to include other versions, such as the Chiron Sport, a more track-focused model that costs $3.2 million in the United States, or around $400,000 more than the “regular” Chiron.
Bugattis are, even by hypercar standards, quite expensive, so one needs to be loaded to afford even the lease. How loaded are we talking? Well, how does $358,000 as a downpayment and a whopping $52,196 a month on a 3-year contract, or $65,950 a month for 24 months, sound like? This means that you’ll end up paying a new Porsche Boxster each month and you’ll only be allowed to put 2,500 miles (4,023 km) on it each year, but hey, at least you get free servicing.
What you get in return for paying all that money is a slightly lighter version of the Chiron with stiffer suspension, modified steering and lots of carbon fiber. It is capable of hitting 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.4 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 261 mph (420 km/h). Paired to a seven-speed DCT transmission and four-wheel drive, the quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine pumps out 1,479 HP (1,500 PS / 1,103 kW) and 1,180 lb-ft (1,600 Nm) of torque.
