Bugatti just sold two extremely rare concept cars to the the highest bidder.
The purchaser, Instagram user b14, is said to be a member of Saudi Arabia’s Saud ruling family. Bugatti sold him the actual Chiron that was presented to the world at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show alongside the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo Concept, a car created purely for the fantasy world of the Gran Turismo racing video game.
The price surrendered for the pair of cars is unknown, though Bugatti did say that the buyer submitted “the most convincing bid,” also implying that there may have been others bidding for the chance to take home these two rare cars.
Photographer GFWilliams posted photos of the two cars on Facebook, each one fit with a Saudi Arabian license plate. The Bugatti Gran Turismo Concept will be on display at the upcoming Pebble Beach Councours d’Elegance, so assumably the owner won’t take possession of the car until after that. A Chiron will also be shown during Monterey Car Week, though it wasn’t clear if it is the Geneva show car.
Neither of these two cars were designed to actually operate on the road, but they are apparently both fit with the brand’s quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine.
