Supercars and hypercars cost a lot of money, everyone knows that. The most affordable Lamborghini is the Huracan Evo RWD coupe, for example, which starts at around $208,000 – or more if you want to add options.

However, the Bugatti Chiron takes that absurd pricing up a notch. The starting cost for a Chiron starts is somewhere in the millions – that's if you're one of the few who are actually qualified for a build slot. But if you want a Chiron with the Blue Royal Carbon livery, you'd have to dish out an additional $222,500.

 

That's according to GTBoard, which posted a list of options for a Bugatti Chiron on its Facebook page. The list of options posted is for the 273-mph Bugatti Chiron Super Sport that costs $3,825,000 and is limited to just nine slots (all sold, sorry).

The special blue color is the most expensive option, according to the list, but the other enhancements to the W16 supercar aren't cheap either. Sky View, which adds a glass roof for the Chiron, is priced at $62,000 – way more than a brand new 2022 Volkswagen Golf R.

This basically shows the conundrum that these one-percenters are facing. They can either buy a Chiron Super Sport in Blue Royal Carbon livery with Sky View, or settle for a non-paid color option and a normal roof, then get a new Huracan Evo for the spouse and a Golf R for their favorite child. Tough choice.

But of course, we don't think the prices of these options are actually a problem for the buyers of these extremely expensive cars. Especially those wealthy enough to take home a Bugatti. But it's still a fascinating fact for all us non-Bugatti owners.
