New Bugatti at Pebble Beach

A new Bugatti "Few Off" will be presented at Pebble Beach.



The information comes from the same source that told me about the Divo (so very reliable).

I wouldn't really say they have "problems" selling Chiron (unlike Veyron).

But I understand your point of view.

They have... several ppl that had an allocation did not go further and also several new ones are at dealers ready to go ... not a good sign for a 3m Limited Production car ...

I have heard other "Type" of stories, but I do not doubt your word.

its way way out of my budget ... But I could have gotten one within a week last year if I wanted ... car stood at official dealer and was ready to sell with delivery miles and that was not a singular instance but happens every few months ... don't believe all they say... the cars do sell yes, but its not like there are long waiting lists for the non LE ones ...

3m Euro is a lot of money, especially for a car that will very likely lose 25-50% over the next few years

Bugattis don't have good demand as evidence by their bad residuals. You could walk into a dealer today and spec a Chiron with no issues at all other than a bit of a wait.

I totally believe you, what I can tell you is that at Bugatti they don't care about sales (these days) the order book is full until the 4th quarter of 2022 or even the beginning of 2023.

well, there are orders in the sense of allocations and other orders by real customers ... I don't think anyone walking into a Bugatti dealer today is likely to wait more than 1 year for an individual spec ... also are you sure this does not also include predictions for a likely roadster of the Chiron ? not sure if any is planed ...

There should not be a roadster version of the Chiron.

Seems highly unlikely. No one with millions of dollars to spend on a Bugatti is going to wait 3-4 years for their car to show up.

You can already find used/unsold ones too, so anyone in their right mind would just buy one currently available and have it repainted/upholstered.

Buying a Chiron with expected delivery in 2022 would be like buying a Veyron with expected deliver after no one wanted the coupe anymore and everyone moved to the Gran Sport.

And yet, it is the truth, Chiron is always extremely desired.

Look at the "110 Ans" edition, the 20 copies are sold directly.

There is also the example of Chiron Sport, since its announcement, more than half of the Chiron ordered since then are Chiron Sport.

The same applies to the "Sky View" option.

I could talk about the Divo, which instantly sold for €5m, but it doesn't directly concern the Chiron series.

And I guarantee you that it will be the same for the next one.

All this to say that Bugatti has no "problem" to sell.
