How much would you pay for the first used Bugatti Chiron in the UK?

One of the best feelings a person would experience is driving a brand new car that came straight from the dealership, especially if its something like a Bugatti Chiron that you probably have worked hard for. Also, we are all aware that any car depreciates the moment we take it out for a ride - but not this one.

Finally, the very first “usedBugatti Chiron in the UK has reached the market, and it looks like the previous owner is not going to lose money. But instead, he will earn another £1M ($1.32M) since he first purchased it. The car is currently listed at a specialist supercar dealer Romans International in Surrey, UK.

Today, the black car, which was one of the very first examples delivered in the UK, has a market value of £3.6M ($4.78M). That is £1.1M more than its original £2.5M tag price when it first came out. How lucky is the owner considering that this car has already been used. This example is also one of just 500 examples built for the Bugatti’s whole 10 year lifespan.

Extreme version of Bugatti Chiron might be unveiled at 2019 Geneva Motor Show, says report

When Bugatti took the veil off the Chiron in 2016, it was well expected that the French carmaker would create versions of the sports car. Then, the carmaker unveiled the track-focused Bugatti Chiron Sport at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018. But it seems Bugatti isn't finished yet, as it is reported to be planning to reveal an extreme version of the Chiron at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

According to our sources, Bugatti has plans to build an extreme version of the Chiron that even surpasses the Divo. It seems that a number of VIP customers were given the privilege of getting a good glimpse of the new upcoming version of the Chiron through sketches shown at the unveiling of the Bugatti Divo at Château Saint-Jean. As report, Bugatti described this new extreme version as “a beauty of speed” as well as a “ground-to-ground Missile”.

Chiron’s predecessor, the Bugatti Veyron was gifted with an extreme version that held the record for being the fastest street-legal car for more than seven years – the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport. This version features an engine that can deliver 1,200 PS (1,184 hp or 883 kW) of max output and 1,106 lb.-ft. (1,500 Nm) of peak torque. It managed to achieve a top speed of 267.856 mph (431.072 km/h) to set a new record, only to be broken seven years later.

This Bugatti Chiron 4x4 rendering is a suitable companion for off-road adventures

Nobody would dare take a Bugatti Chiron to the off-road. After all, the power, dynamics and capabilities of the Chiron are designed to challenge the road and even the track, but not the off- road. If a driver tries to drive a Chiron to an off-road path, he or she should be ready to shell out a large amount of money to repair the possible damages that the hypercar may incur during such adventure. In short, the Chiron is ill-equipped to tackle the off-road.

Nevertheless, a well-equipped Bugatti Chiron might be able to take on the off-road challenge. That would be too much to ask, as Bugatti has built itself as a creator of super-fast cars. A Bugatti sports utility vehicle is currently being considered at the carmaker, but transforming the Chiron into an off-road monster is something the carmaker would leave to other hands. Taking that insurmountable task – at least in a rendering is automotive graphic artist Rain Prisk, and the result of his efforts is the Bugatti Chiron 4X4.

Rain Prisk has been rendering images of existing cars and transforming them into something carmakers wouldn’t even think of. Some of this works include a pickup truck version of a Range Rover, a 2005 Ford GT Raptor, and shooting brake version of the Bugatti Divo. His latest work is the Bugatti Chiron 4X4, which is menacingly well-equipped to call the off-road trail its second home.

Bugatti’s telemetry tech remotely monitors your Chiron anywhere in the world

Back in 2004, Bugatti first introduced to us the telemetry system on its road-going production model. This tech debuted with the Veyron, making it the very first in the industry to utilize this kind of system. Now, if you own a Chiron, then you can also benefit from this. So in case you get a flat tire or any such issue, you will be alerted by Bugatti’s “flying doctors” about the specific problem you are currently having in real time.

The telemetry system, if you didn’t know, got its inspiration from Formula 1 and DTM race cars. It relies mostly on mobile radio to monitor the condition of a Veyron and Chiron, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And the only time that telemetry won’t be able to monitor your car is when there is no mobile phone network coverage. Around 14 years after this technology was introduced, it has been greatly improved, and now can monitor 10,000 signals in the case of the more high tech Bugatti Chiron.

What the telemetry focuses on in each of these cars would be the key components such as the 8.0 liter quad turbo engine, the seven speed dual clutch automatic gearbox, and even hardware such as the infotainment system and air conditioning. As mentioned earlier, Bugatti has three “flying doctors” that are in charge of the Chirons and Veyrons. One of them is focused on Europe and Russia, the other one in Middle East and Asia Pacific, and one is in charge of North America.

The Bugatti Chiron is probably one of the sportiest cars in the planet, thanks to its overwhelming power output of 1,500 hp and its hypercar design. If there is one car who could claim to be sportier than the Chiron, it is another creation from the French manufacturer – the new Bugatti Chiron Sport.

Bugatti’s formula for creating a sportier version of the Chiron doesn’t entail any increase or boost in power output or torque. The French high-performance carmaker didn’t need to tinker with the quad-turbo, 8.0-liter W16 engine to come up with the Chiron Sport. This means that power ratings for the Chiron Sport remain at 1,500 hp of max output and 1,180 lb.-ft. (1,600 Nm) of peak torque as transmitted to all wheels. Likewise, this means that Chiron Sport could complete a sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 2.4 seconds, and achieve a top speed of up to 260 mph (420 km/h) – the same as the Chiron.

Aside from retaining the superb power and performance of the Chiron, the new Chiron Sport also features the same ease and convenience of driving. Instead of focusing on these elements, Bugatti decided to dramatically improve the handling of the new Chiron Sport and enhance its lateral dynamics on winding roads. To achieve this goal, the new Chiron Sport is fitted with a dynamic handling package and has been made lighter than the original model.

Turn 10 Studios, the developer of Forza Motorsport 7, has just released this month’s collection of downloadable cars for the gamers. This time, it is very different from last month’s downloadable batch that included largely classic vehicles. Because for the month of February, they decided to put emphasis on the modern performance that includes bringing the Bugatti Chiron to the game.

We actually find it very strange that the Forza Motorsport 7’s extensive lineup, with over 700 vehicles, lacks the Chiron, which limits gamers to experience the top batch of hypercars. The Bugatti Chiron here has an 8.0 liter quad turbocharged W16 that enables it to produce 1,479 horsepower (1,102 kilowatts) and 1,190 pound-feet (1,599 Newton metres) of torque.

In fact, it will only take the coupe around 2.5 seconds to hit 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) before hitting the limited top speed of 261 miles per hour (420 kilometers per hour). In real life, not a lot of people get the chance to experience a car this quick, but now, Forza players have the opportunity to enjoy how the Bugatti performs on a track, plus they do not have to worry about totally wrecking the car.

Around a year ago, Renault expanded the Koleos family, starting with the range-topping Initiale Paris. It first made its debut in 2016 during the Paris Motor Show. And today, customers in the UK can now get their hands on them.

The Initiale Paris is offered with a starting price of £36,700 ($49,552) OTR. Deliveries for the said model will begin this spring. Dressed in an exclusive body colour, Amethyst, the SUV also gets a new exterior badging, 19” two tone alloys, and full LED headlights.

As you enter the cabin of the Renault Koleos Initiale Paris, you will no doubt appreciate its heated and ventilated front seats, two-tone Nappa leather interior, heated and cooled front cup holders, ambient lighting, dual-zone climate control, R-Link2 infotainment system with an 8.7” display, 13-speaker Bose sound system, Android Auto and Apple Carplay compatibility, Tom-Tom built in satellite navigation, and an automatic tailgate with key card or sensor for hands-free opening.

It hasn’t been that long since Bugatti introduced the Chiron to the market. In fact, it has only been a little over a year since production of the said model began in late 2016. And already, one owner is already planning to sell his hypercar. So for those of you who are interested, expect to see this 1,479 horsepower (1,102 kilowatt) Chiron at the upcoming RM Sotheby’s Paris auction next year.

This particular model was one of the first 20 Chirons to be delivered to their first owner, when it was brought to him during the second quarter of 2017 as one of the 18 examples delivered. Having said that, this car is pretty much brand new.

It has only been driven less than 621 miles (1,000 kilometers), and half of that number comes from test drives by the manufacturer. The auction house estimates that this car could sell for about 3.2 million to 3.6 million euros ($3.8 to $4.3 million). While that is quite a huge increase over the $3 million MSRP, it’s an awesome opportunity for any collector of rare models.

French high-performance car maker Bugatti Automobiles commenced deliveries of its 1,500-hp Bugatti Chiron super sports car in March 2017. While the demand for the Chiron hypercar is high, its production nature limits the number of examples assembled and delivered each year. Good news though as the company was able to reach its delivery target for 2017 – 70 examples of the Bugatti Chiron were sent to customers around the world.

Ordering and purchasing a new Bugatti Chiron is one thing, while getting to drive it is another. Wolfgang Durheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles, remarked that the French carmaker is aiming to keep the waiting times for the customers as short as possible. So far, only 70 customers who ordered the Chiron have received their supercars.

When Bugatti commenced delivery of the Chiron in March 2017, the carmaker has already taken more than 200 orders. As of December 2017, the orders have ballooned to more than 300 examples. Bugatti revealed that 43 percent of orders were from customers in Europe while 26 percent were from North America, which includes the United States and Canada. Around 23 percent of the orders were from the Middle East while the remaining 8 percent were from the Asia-Pacific region.

We have some good news for Mazda MX-5 Miata owners in the United Kingdom. The automaker recently announced an upgrade for the model which they call the Z-Sport model. Sales will begin on March 1 next year, but Mazda will limit production to only 300 units.

What’s included in the Z-Sport Edition, you ask? Well, it will give your good old Miata a beautiful Deep Cherry fabric roof, 17-inch black finished BBS wheels, and a Machine Grey Metallic body. The cabin will then be dressed in Sand coloured leather upholstery, and of course, the Z Sport logo will be present on the floor mats and door sills. To represent that the car is one of 300 examples only, it comes with a numbered plaque on the dashboard that displays its production number.

The Deep Cherry Red roof makes a beautiful contrast to the rest of the body’s darker paint and black wheels. The interior is a mix of two tone light beige and black that makes it look sexy. Lucky for UK customers, they get to own this stylish edition.

Those in the United Kingdom may now order a new version of Skoda’s sports utility vehicle – the new Skoda Kodiaq Sportline. It will be slotted between SE L and Edition versions of the Kodiaq, and will have a starting price of £32,685 in the UK. It is now available to order, with first deliveries expected in February 2018.

As its name indicates, the Sportline trim just makes the Skoda Kodiaq look sportier. Featuring the same engine lineup as the Kodiaq, the Kodiaq Sportline is as powerful as its regular version. Most of the changes implemented involved sportier tweaks, although in terms of traction and safety performance the new Skoda Kodiaq is better because it comes standard with an all-wheel drive system. This technology allows the Kodiaq Sportline to be suitable even in rough terrain, a capability boosted by the fact that its ground clearance is higher than a regular Kodiaq (194 mm vs. 187 mm).

To differentiate the Kodiaq Sportline from the regular Kodiaq, the new version comes with a number of black design features -- grille, roof rails, wing mirror housings, and side window trims. Its protective side trims are specified in body color while its front and rear bumpers have been tweaked. Furthermore, the Kodiaq Sportline features a tinted rear window and rear side windows. Its profile is also marked by short overhangs and specially designed 19-inch alloy wheels (20-inch wheels are available).

With so many rims available in the market today, it’s quite the challenge to tell which one would look best on your car. How much more if you plan to match them to a Bugatti Chiron? Many owners of these 1500 hp monsters would usually prefer the manufacturer-supplied wheels over those that come from the aftermarket specialists. To some, the many choices out there can make the task overwhelming.

It’s good to know there exists a handful of Bugatti Chiron owners who are brave enough to take the less traveled road. Take for example, the owner of this Bugatti who decided to find a new set of Forgiato Tecnica rims instead of settling for the Chiron’s stock alloy wheels.

We have no way of knowing what the size of these wheels really are, but let’s just say they fit those tires that already came with the Chiron from scratch. The stock Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires are made especially for the Chiron’s powerful road potentials so keeping it stable under any road condition is imperative to its performance. In case the owner preferred another set of high performance tires, then we have to assume these must be the better ones. The stock comes in the sizes of 11x20 for the front and 14x21 for the rear.

Bugatti is no longer the automaker that carries the fastest street legal production model after the Chiron was overtaken by no other than the Koenigsegg Agera RS. The new champion posted an average speed of 277.9 miles per hour (444.6 kilometers per hour) after doing two runs going in opposite directions as part of the Guinness’ requirements. It was Niklas Lilja, Koenigsegg’s factory driver, who was behind the Agera’s wheel when he broke the record at Pahrump, Nevada. All the figures were recorded and verified by Racelogic during the run last Saturday.

A couple of months ago, Koenigsegg was already talking about taking the crown from the Bugatti, which had Chiron’s 0-240-0 record. Drive Tribe had provided some of the details of the record-breaking feat. It reported that Agera RS was in Nevada, where it was put through a number of tests on a closed section of a road somewhere between Las Vegas and Pahrump. To make this possible, the Swedish automaker had to get permission from the Nevada Department of Transportation so they could close the particular road for the high-speed run.

In 2010, an unrestricted Bugatti Veyron Super Sport made a record of 267.81 miles per hour (431 kilometers per hour) at Volkswagen Group’s Ehra-Lessien test track. It was driven by Pierre Henri Raphanel, who was the automaker’s official test driver. It wasn’t long after that moment that a road-legal production model, which was the Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition, was launched. However, it had an electronic top speed limiter that lets it do just up to 258 miles per hour (145 kph) to preserve the integrity of the tires.

Have you ever wondered what you can you buy with $9,365 in your pocket? Well, you have quite a lot of options. In fact, you can even purchase a used vehicle and perhaps modify it to build a super fast car. On the other hand, you can get this scale model of the Bugatti Chiron’s powertrain.

This 1:4 scale model of Chiron’s 8.0 liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine and seven-speed dual clutch transmission is created and built by Amalgam. The real powertrain, on the other hand, measures 18 inches long and nine inches high.

You are probably wondering what makes it so expensive. Well, Amalgam claims that they took 2500 hours just to design everything, and that does not even include building it. Building each example took them around 220 hours using a total of 1,040 individual pieces.

South Korean carmaker Kia will try to follow up the success of its Sportage compact sports utility vehicle by introducing a smaller SUV (subcompact) in the United Kingdom in the guise of the new 2018 Kia Stonic. The new Stonic – Kia’s first entry into the B-SUV segment – will be available in the UK for as a low as £16,295 starting October 23, 2017.

Underpinned by the same platform used on the latest iteration of the Kia Rio, the new Kia Stonic will be available in two different trim grades (Stonic 2 and Stonic First Edition) and three different engines (a 1.4-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine, a 1.0-liter T-GDi turbocharged petrol unit and a 1.6-liter CRDi turbodiesel).

The Kia Stonic 2 trim could be powered by any of three available engines, with the version having the 1.4-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine (with output of 98 PS or 97hp) under its hood serving as the entry-level model. This base model – featuring a starting price of £16,295—is provided as standard with bi-function projection headlights, LED daytime running lights, cornering lights, electrically adjustable heated side mirrors, rear parking sensors, roof rails and 17-inch alloy wheels. It is also provided with 3.5-inch supervision cluster, multi-function steering wheel, a six-speaker sound system and all-round electric windows as well as remote locking, Bluetooth with music streaming and 60:40 split rear seats.

Motorists in the United Kingdom who intend to purchase the new 2018 Hyundai Kona subcompact sports utility vehicle could start placing their orders on November 2, 2017.

Marked by Hyundai to target new customers and lure those preferring the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur, the new Hyundai Kona is slated to follow its cousin – the Kia Stonic compact SUV – into showrooms in the UK in the next few weeks. It will be available in the UK in five trims, with each higher trim more or less building on their respective lower trim. Two engines are available, although the higher-end mill is reserved for the top-end model of the Kona.

Lurking at the bottom of the range is the Hyundai Kona S – the base trim – with a starting price of £16,195 ($21,514). It is powered by a compact turbocharged 1.0-liter T-GDi petrol engine that could deliver 120 PS (118 hp) of max output and 172 Nm of peak torque. Returning emissions of as low as 117 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer, this highly efficient small capacity engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.

It can be recalled that the 32-year old football champ gifted himself with his very own Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse after winning the UEFA Euro Cup in 2016. Fast forward to the present, Cristiano Ronaldo has recently showed off his brand new Bugatti Chiron hypercar after Real Madrid’s win over Borussia Dortmund. Seen from his official Instagram account, the football superstar posted a video while taking his son for a ride on board this highly exotic machine.

While the video was captured just as the two were leaving the driveway, another post shows a picture of the hypercar still parked in front of the building. The video, with a caption that reads; “new animal in the building Bugatti Chiron” has currently earned over 16 million views after it was posted only four days ago.

Ronaldo spent nearly 2.4 million euros just to get his hands on the new 1,500hp, 1,180lb-ft Chiron, a limited production hypercar with only 500 units. That’s about 3 million USD, equivalent to about £1.85 million. Either way, the footballer’s hypercar features a two-tone grey black finish, thus, showing his taste is more subdued unlike the first Chiron that came to the US dressed up in a yellow and black combo.

We first saw the Galibier Concept eight years ago when Bugatti unveiled it. But today, it seems like they still have not given up on the development of an ultra-luxury sedan.

Wolfgang Durheimer, president of Bugatti, said in an interview with Automotive News that the four-door model "is not dead". Though he did not elaborate on this statement, he said that by 2018, its future will be determined by the Volkswagen Group executives.

If the automaker's plan pushes through, we can expect to see this model by 2024, and this model may actually replace the current Chiron, considering what Durheimer said will be a "one-model brand" for the future.

Guests at the luxurious Salon Privé supercar exhibit witnessed the return of legendary manufacturer Automobili Turismo e Sport as it holds the ATS GT’s official premiere last Thursday, August 31st. Presented at the event is the limited-run Italian supercar that drew inspiration from the first ATS 2500 GT of the early 60s. Carrying a $1.15 million price tag with only 12 units to be built, the new ATS GT Launch Edition is the company’s first production after being out in the limelight for more than fifty years.

ATS, or Automobili Turismo e Sport was first established in 1961 by Giotto Bizzarrini and Carlo Chiti together with some prominent members of the Scuderia Ferrari team. As former team members, its initial motivation was to beat Ferrari both when it comes to building track ready and road-going sports cars. Unfortunately, the stint only lasted for about two years and the company eventually gave up after releasing the ATS 2500 GT in 1963.

Moving on, the fabled company makes a pleasant comeback with the new ATS GT. Designed by ATS’ chief designer Emanuele Bomboi, each handmade GT supercar will be employing the most highly advanced lightweight engineering with materials consisting mostly of carbon fiber. Its design inspiration, the ATS 2500 GT, was a small coupe developed by co-founders Bizzarrini and Chiti and was built by Allemano according to the instructions of its designer, Franco Scaglione some fifty years ago.

There is no disputing that the Bugatti Chiron is a beautiful monster. Much-awaited and much-hyped, this hypercar was described by Bugatti as the most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car in the world, beating its likewise monstrous stable mate, the Bugatti Veyron. However, there is also one aspect that the Chiron is better at than the Veyron 16.4 – its fuel economy.

Yes, while the Chiron is over 50 percent more powerful than the Veyron -- their quad-turbo, 8.0-liter W16 engine producing outputs of 1,500 hp and 987 hp respectively, it nonetheless travels more miles per gallon on the combined cycle. That means the Chiron essentially consumes less fuel when on the go. Letting numbers do the talking, the Bugatti Chiron has been rated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to deliver 11 mpg on the combined cycle. This means that on the combined cycle, the Chiron has a better fuel economy than the Veyron, which is rated at 10 mpg.

In terms of highway fuel economy, the Veyron is slightly better than the Chiron. A gallon of fuel allows the Veyron to travel 15 miles and the Chiron for 14 miles – on the highway. On the other hand, the Chiron has better fuel economy on the city than the Veyron. The Chiron has been EPA-rated to return 9 mpg on the city, while the Veyron was estimated to be able to travel 8 miles on a gallon of fuel.
