Chiron Profilée auction was finally held, marking the last opportunity to purchase a new Bugatti car powered by the legendary W16 engine, direct from the Molsheim Atelier. The Chiron Profilée was one of the most sought-after lots, attracting considerable attention from bidders and car enthusiasts alike.
The Power of a Legend
With just one Chiron Profilée set to exist, the bidding was intense, both in person and over the phone. Hendrik Malinowski, Managing Director of Bugatti Automobiles, stated: "Bidders clearly recognized the importance and value of the Chiron Profilée, with an intense rivalry and a price that places this car firmly into the history books." The sale of the Chiron Profilée was a testament to the power of the legendary W16 engine and the prestige of the Bugatti brand.
A Unique Piece of Automotive History
Marcus Görig, Car Specialist at RM Sotheby's, spoke of the occasion: "With numerous bidders in the room and on the telephones, there was a real sense of history being made, and we congratulate the new custodian of the Chiron Profilée on their extremely special acquisition." The Chiron Profilée is an exceptional piece of automotive history, with its name inspired by one of Jean Bugatti's first creations, the Type 46 model known as the Surprofilee.
Unmatched Performance and Design
According to Bugatti, the Chiron Profilée is the fastest-accelerating Chiron model, capable of reaching 100 kilometers per hour in just 2.3 seconds and 200 kph in 5.5 seconds. With a top speed of 236 miles per hour, it is faster than the Pur Sport but not as fast as some other Bugatti models.
The Chiron Profilée features a 1,500 PS powertrain and a quad-turbo V8 engine, but what sets it apart is its unique design and details.
A Masterpiece of Craftsmanship
The Chiron Profilée boasts an integrated fixed rear wing that provides exceptional stability at high speeds and helps cool the W16 engine.
It is the first Chiron to be sold with a woven leather interior and an Argent Atlantique exterior, making it a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. The horseshoe-style wheels, inspired by the famous Bugatti grille, were designed and manufactured specifically for this model.
The Chiron Profilée is a true masterpiece of automotive engineering and design. With a record-breaking sale price, it is now a part of automotive history and will forever be remembered as one of the most exceptional Bugatti models ever produced.
