Parmigiani Fleurier and Bugatti are celebrating their 10-year partnership and the French company’s latest supercar, the Chiron, has visited the watchmaker’s headquarters. This is actually the first time we have a chance to take a look at the vehicle after the auto show in Geneva in a less glamorous environment.
We are not here to judge, but the Chiron looks ever prettier under the sunlight in the Val de Travers, home of Parmigiani Fleurier in Switzerland. The standard color scheme combining light and dark blue hues with black alloy wheels looks possibly like the best choice of all paint schemes.
Bugatti has already announced “interest has been exceptional” so far as the company has received 180 pre-orders for the model with deposits of $250,000 (€200,000). This comes as a natural thing, keeping in mind the Chiron comes with an upgraded W16 8.0-liter engine with four turbochargers. This unit generates a massive 1,500 horsepower (1,103 kilowatts) at 6,700 rpm and 1,181 pound-feet (1,600 newton meters) of torque between 2,000 – 6,000 rpm.
Only 500 will be the fortunate owners of the supercar as Bugatti is planning a limited production with around 65 units to be made every year from now until 2024. Deliveries will kick off this fall and Veyron owners will be the first to get the Chiron.
