There are fast cars, and then there’s the Bugatti Chriron Super Sport300+. This hypercar from France was the first to be clocked at a top speed of a model produced by the manufacturer.
Three wealthy UK customers are now able to purchase the super-exclusive car. Only 30 were produced.
HR Owen Bugatti London took delivery of UK orders this week. The photo shows the trio in formation at the dealer’s workshop.
With each priced at around €3.5million before taxes (around £4million inclusive of VAT and delivery charges), pictured is a staggering haul of £12million-worth of lightning-fast vehicles.
£10.5m of new motors: These three Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ hypercars have arrived to be delivered to UK customers. Each one costs at least a whopping £4million each before taking into account optional extras and personalised features
In 2019, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ became the first production car to surpass 300mph. Official Bugatti Test Pilot Andy Wallace was behind the wheel.
Soon after the announcement, Chiron Super Sport 300+ was made available in 30 limited editions. Only 10% of them have arrived in London.
HR Owen has confirmed that three of the cars, representing 10% of the restricted production run, were for customers located in the capital or South of England.
The Chiron Super Sport 300+ was upgraded to meet world records.
It means that only 30 hypercars, which are world records-setting models, were produced by French brands. This makes the UK model 10% of total production
They were delivered in London to the UK Bugatti dealer, HR Owen. Then they were presented to their owners in London and South of England.
The Bugatti Chiron Supersport 300+ is a £4million version of the standard hypercar with the extended carbon bodywork and upgraded exhaust system from the record-smashing example
Bugatti confirmed that only 30 Chiron Super Sport 300+ Road Cars will ever be produced. Three examples of this car have been delivered to the UK.
The interiors of customer cars are more extravagant and include a passenger’s seat as well as the choice for no roll cage. The laser-guide ride height system is gone and the electronic speed limiter will be installed.
The car’s sleek bodywork was changed to have a longer tail. This allowed air to flow smoothly over it, helping to keep the car stable at high speeds. With the new design and vertical exhaust pipes, the diffusor was 32% larger. It also increased downforce.
The legendary eight-litre W16 engine was upgraded with reinforced pistons, larger turbochargers and an oil pump capable of operating at higher pressures, to deliver a total of 1,578bhp, which is 99bhp more than a ‘standard’ Chiron.
Bugatti’s Chiron hypercar was modified and tuned by Briton Andy Wallace. It reached a top speed of 309.77 mph on a track in Germany, beating its previous record of almost 27 mph.
The Guinness Book of World Records stated that Bugatti’s speed record of 300mph was not recognized by them due to an injunction within the rules.
The rule stipulates that land speed records are only admissible if they were set within one hour of eachother on the same course. Bugatti did not do this.
Unique paintwork is what makes the Chiron Super Sport 300+ stand out. The Super Sport 300+ has a longer tail body than Super Sport. However, it is painted in black carbon fiber and features a Jet Orange stripe that runs through its centre.
The carbon continues to seep into the engine cover and windscreen wiper.
Further flourishes are included in the design of the Bugatti 300+, which includes a Bugatti Macaron logo that is made out genuine silver, black enamel, strong magnesium alloy wheels, finished with a unique colour called “Nocturne”, and a Bugatti Macaron logo.
Bugatti’s Molsheim, France headquarters are building the Chiron Super Sport 300+ models that were sold out.
It must be the average of both the fastest speeds in each direction on the same track to achieve the record speed. Bugatti said it was only going in one direction.
Due to safety concerns, the car manufacturer said that it could not use the VW track in either direction. The track has been modified by decades of cars racing around in clockwise directions.
Bugatti explained in 2019 that running in an opposite direction to the grain would cause tires to heat up.
