Here is a sale that reminds us that the French hyperluxe car manufacturer Bugatti continues to fascinate the crowds. Among the highlights of the sale, we can mention the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, a piece sold for almost 4.2 million pounds, or almost 5 million euros. As a reminder, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ is produced by the French manufacturer in only 30 copies. It claims a top speed of 304.775 mph, or 490.49 km/h!

Unlike other Chirons, the body of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ has been lengthened, and its aerodynamics have been optimized to ensure exceptional performance. The balance between air resistance and lift improves performance and stability, even at speeds above 420 km/h. As Andy Wallace so aptly put it, "A completely crazy speed. It's hard to believe that a car can reach such a speed."

In 2019, Bugatti broke a record with the Chiron Super Sport 300+. Never before had a series manufacturer reached such a speed. On August 2, 2019, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ was the first hypersport car to cross the mythical threshold of 300 miles per hour (482.80 km/h). Bugatti also set a new speed record that was certified by the TÜV. Koenigsegg comes with the JESKO. The Swedish manufacturer promises to reach the symbolic bar of 300 mph...

The example offered for sale by Sotheby's is part of an order placed by a British dealer based in London, HR OWEN. The correspondence from the Molsheim factory indicates that the initial order date is December 2019. The delivery to the customer took place in January 2022. The Bugatti was driven sparingly. At the time of sale, the odometer displayed only 1416 miles, 2279 km.

For £4,195,625 excluding VAT (€4,812,530 excluding VAT), the new buyer has bought nothing less than a piece of world automotive history. There is no doubt that he has just made a beautiful investment. A hypercar that will increase in value over time.
