Bugatti has released a set of photos taking us inside its Molsheim, France factory where its all-new Chiron is being built.
Right now, 12 of the new super sports cars are in production, with a total of 70 cars planned for this year. In total, Bugatti plans to build 500 of these cars, though production could be increased if there is enough demand.
It takes roughly six months from the start of production to delivery. Each Chiron is unique, designed by its owner with the help of a designer from Bugatti. There are tons of choices, including 23 different exterior colors, eight carbon fiber finishes, 30 stitching options, 18 carpet choices and even 11 different seat belt colors. On top of all those choices, Bugatti will match any color you bring them.
To build the carbon fiber monocoque alone, it takes a Bugatti technician about four weeks, as the body shell can be up to eight layers thick.
As a refresher, this machine makes 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, coming from a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16. Top speed is limited to 261 miles an hour, though it’s likely that Bugatti will eventually take the restrictions off and see how fast this car can really go.
Not surprisingly, the Chiron is going to sell for about $2.6 million.
