Bugatti Just Built The 100th Chiron, Has 400 More Models To Go
20 percent of all Bugatti Chirons are now on the roadby Kirby Garlitos, on
Bugatti only plans to build 500 Chirons, and the French automaker just built its 100th Chiron last week. As expected, it commemorated the occasion by throwing a party in its headquarters in Molsheim, France. The 100th Chiron is expected to go to a customer in the Middle East, who dressed up his new hypercar with a number of exclusive touches, ultimately settling for one that comes with a net price tag of €2.85 million, or somewhere around $3.33 million.

Bugatti is probably one of the few automakers in the world that can pull off celebrating the production of its 100th model. That comes with the territory of being one of the most esteemed auto brands in the business. The model in question isn’t just a “standard” Chiron, either. It’s been dressed to the nines by Bugatti at the request of its owner, who we only know as residing in the Arabian Peninsula.
Befitting its status as the 100th production Chiron, this model is dressed entirely in Dark Blue Carbon while also getting a matte finish. It’s a unique long, even by the standards of the Chiron. The exclusive paint finish continues with the Italian Red Bugatti side line, which creates a nice contrast with the Mink Black wheels. As expected, the interior also looks every bit like a Bugatti Chiron. The whole surface area is dressed in premium leather with red serving as the dominant color. The overall look of the 100th Chiron is downright extraordinary, though the word itself could be used to describe the Bugatti Chiron as a whole.

It says a lot about the exclusivity of this particular Chiron when Bugatti’s own president, Stephan Winkelmann, singles it out as one of the best versions of the hypercar Bugatti has created. “I find the 100th Chiron especially pleasing,” he said. “It is dynamic and elegant in equal measure. This car shows that Bugatti produces highly individualized masterpieces of automobile craftsmanship that are simply unparalleled.”
Considering the lengths Bugatti took to appease the owner’s desired specifications for his Chiron; it’s hard to imagine Bugatti not doing the same for all the remaining Chirons that are still going to be built. Who knows, sometime in 2019, we might be back here drooling over the 200th production unit of the Chiron. Considering that it takes Bugatti a year to build 70 units of its prized hypercar, that moment could happen sometime in late 2019. By that time, here’s to hoping that we can see something as incredible as the 200th production model.
