Bugatti shouted “last call!” for Chiron in October 2021. If you haven’t put your name on the list, it’s too late: The French company has announced that, after a record 2021, construction sites have finally been announced. The race-focused Bolide is also sold out.
Like sister companies Porsche and Lamborghini, Bugatti had the most successful year in 2021 since its founding. It has already received 150 orders, which is worth noting that all of its cars have six-figure prices before options come into the equation, and 60 percent of those come from first-time buyers. That number includes about 40 Chiron build slots available by the end of 2021 and 40 units Bolide.
This therefore means that you can no longer order a new Bugatti. Any examples of Divo Was delivered, the one-off La Voiture Noire in the hands of its anonymous owner and delivered EB110 inspired centodieci sold out will start in 2022. However, the company does not take a year off. It plans to build and deliver 80 cars by 2022 while presumably working on writing the next chapter in its long history.
It’s too early to say what will get the torch Chiron. Bugatti merged with Croatia-based Rimac in July 2021. While Rimac is known for building electric cars, the next Bugatti is hypercar won’t necessarily run the battery. Company founder Mate Rimac confirmed that pistons will exist.
“I’m a car guy. We won’t just recycle what we have – not rebuild the Chiron or hybrid Chiron. We are developing a brand new product from the very beginning. Everything, because we think it’s the best way to go. That product will have an internal combustion engine,” Rimac asserts in July 2021. Until then, the fastest (and cheapest) way to get a Bugatti into your garage is order an electric scooter.
