Bugatti Delivers 70 Chirons This Year
That’s a total of 105,000 horsepower!by Kirby, on
2017 has been a landmark year for Bugatti. It started it off by launching the 1,500-horsepower Chiron at the Geneva Motor Show, ushering in a new era of hypercar awesomeness to the world. For the rest of the year, the French automaker focused on producing the hypercar with the goal of delivering the first batch of models before the year ended. It took some time, but Bugatti has finally achieved its goal for the year by delivering 70 Chirons to the waiting arms of their owners.
With 70 cars already delivered, Bugatti now has at least 230 orders to take care of.
With 70 cars already delivered, Bugatti now has at least 230 orders to take care of. That total is based on reports that the French automaker has over 300 orders of the hypercar on the docket. If it keeps up its current production pace, the company’s factory in Molsheim, France will have its lights on for the next four years.
The 300 confirmed orders for the Chiron also means that more than half of Bugatti’s planned volume for the hypercar is accounted for. The company plans to limit production to just 500 units, so a little mathematical exercise reveals that there are around 200 or so Chirons left that are still unaccounted for. At the pace it’s selling, it’s safe to say that the Chiron will sell out a lot faster than its predecessor, the Veyron. The latter had a 10-year life cycle and included a host of special edition models. It’s unclear if Bugatti has a similar strategy for the Chiron, but by the pace it’s been selling the car, it wouldn’t be surprising if we see fewer special edition Chirons compared to the Veyron.
North America comes in second with 26 percent while the Middle East isn’t far behind with 23 percent.
Bugatti shouldn’t have any concerns selling the Chiron in all corners of the world. In fact, the automaker revealed that from the orders it has received so far, four of the world’s biggest automotive regions are present. Leading the way is Europe, which has accounted for 43 percent of all Chiron orders so far. North America comes in second with 26 percent while the Middle East isn’t far behind with 23 percent. The Asia-Pacific region accounts for the remaining eight percent.
