Saudi Prince Buys Bugatti Chiron And Vision Gran Turismo Concept
A Saudi Prince has just been announced as the buyer of the Bugatti Chiron, the one-off Vision Gran Turismo Concept car unveiled last year.
Prince Badr bin Saud is said to be worth upwards of $21 billion so obviously had the money to purchase these unique creations. Bugatti confirmed that Saud submitted “the most convincing bid” to buy the pair, inevitably a figure well in excess of $5 million.
We know that both the Chiron show car from this year’s Geneva Motor Show and the Vision Gran Turismo concept car from Frankfurt 2015 run and are installed with the firm’s staple quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine. Beyond that however, their performance capabilities are unknown.
The extent of Saud’s car collection isn’t known but we’d expect these two to be joining dozens of other exclusively and valuable automobiles and that will line up to the hypercar in Saud’s car colletion.
Just yesterday, it was confirmed that the Chiron and Vision Gran Turismo concept will be displayed together for the first time at next month’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
