The 2016 Bugatti Chiron will cost almost $750,000 more than the Veyron model it replaces.
Due to make its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March, the Bugatti Chiron was recently shown to potential customers at the company’s Molsheim HQ, which is where it was revealed that the Veyron successor would cost around $2.5 million. Also, that will be the starting base price for the model, meaning the convertible variant and the guaranteed number of limited edition models will also demand a premium.
Power output is expected to top 1,500 metric horsepower, or around 1,479 horsepower as it’s known in the U.S. And despite the hefty price tag, it is being reported that at least 10 clients have already placed deposits.
