by on Apr.16, 2019

The Bugatti Chiron ans 110 Bugatti is one of 20. The limited edition racer marks the company's 110th anniversary.

If a 25-year anniversary is silver and 50 years is gold, what’s 110? Bugatti!

Perhaps more precisely the limited-edition Chiron Sport “110 ans Bugatti,” the specialty $4 million racer to commemorate the founding of the company in 1909 by Ettore Bugatti as well as the country where the company was created. The car is designed to “serve as inspiration for a company that follows its founder’s spirit.”

The limited-edition Chiron Sport “110 Ans Bugatti” also emphasizes the company’s French heritage with an exterior livery, if you will, in the tricolor, “Le Bleu-Blanc-Rouge.” That scheme rolls over to some parts of the interior as well. Just 20 of the cars will be built. (more…)

The New York International Auto Show will see dozens of new model introductions this year.

There’s been plenty of talk about the end of the auto show era, and we’ve certainly seen a lot of manufacturers step back from the lavish previews that were the norm in decades past. That said, this year’s New York International Auto Show looks to be a major event, with close to three dozen vehicles making either their North American or global debut.

There’s something for everyone’s taste and budget, from the new, entry-level Nissan Versa all the way up to the special edition Bugatti Chiron Sport “110 ans Bugatti,” a hypercar expected to go for somewhere around $4 million. No surprise, there’s a particular focus on sport- and crossover-utility vehicles, reflecting the ongoing shift in the U.S. market.

The Pininfarina is one of an assortment of 1,000+ hp models that debuted in Geneva.

This month’s Geneva Motor Show brought the debut of dozens of new models, from little city cars all the way up to mega-million dollar exotics. It also brought several new entries into one of the automotive industry’s most exotic clubs: vehicles topping 1,000 horsepower.

It’s been 14 years since the original Bugatti Veyron 16.4 captured a spot in the Guinness World Records by becoming the first model to deliver four-figure power. With the debut of models like the Aston Martin AM-RB 003, Hispano Suiza Carmen, Koenigsegg Jesko and Pinfarina Battista in Geneva last week the number of models topping the 1,000 hp mark is now over a dozen, with several other models reportedly in the works.

As you’d expect, the price tag for these products is equally astronomical. A special one-off version of the Bugatti Chiron last week was announced at $19 million. But, if you have the cash and access to a long stretch of pavement, here’s what you might want to check out:

Bugatti Reveals 1,500-Horsepower, $5.78-Million Divo

For folks who think the Chiron just isn’t quick enough.

by on Aug.24, 2018

The Bugatti Divo is a 1,500-horsepower beast that costs a mere $5.78 million.

While it may boast a top speed of 261 mph, there apparently are people – very, very wealthy people – who think the Bugatti Chiron isn’t fast enough.

So, for those folks, the French arm of the Volkswagen Group is rolling out the Bugatti Divo, all $5.78 million of it. The ultra-exclusive hypercar is making its debut this weekend on the Monterey Peninsula, ahead of the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The Last Word!

The 1,500 horsepower Divo isn’t a ground-up project, starting out as a Chiron that has been fed plenty of steroids. But it is lighter and boasts far better handling, Bugatti officials promise, especially during aggressive cornering maneuvers. On a straight road, however, it actually loses a bit of speed, topping out at a mere 236 mph. (more…)
