Bugatti Houston recently hosted a test drive event at Carlton Woods Country Club for prospective buyers to have the opportunity to drive the Chiron for the first time. Bugatti sent marketing representatives along with professional driver Butch Leitzinger, who is best known as an ALMS driver with Dyson Racing, but he has also driven for a variety of other teams and race series including Bentley.
Over the two days that the Bugatti team was in Houston, there were only a handful of driving slots available to prospective buyers looking to learn more about the Chiron and configure their very own. Bugatti shipped one of only two manufacture demo Chiron’s in the country. The Chiron that we were sent was Blue Carbon exterior with Italian red leather and equipped with over $377,000 in upgraded options which consisted of the following:
- Full exposed carbon fiber
- Caractere Wheels
- Comfort Seat
- Leather/Carbon interior
As guest arrived for their allotted time with the Chiron, each first visited with the marketing team for an overview of the Chiron and then spent over 45 minutes with Butch as they went for a spin, along with having the chance to get behind the wheel themselves to experience this amazing vehicle.
As you can imagine, the clientele that are interested in owning a Chiron are experienced car collectors owning brands such as Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini to name a few. The Chiron exceeded each and everyone of their expectations. What surprised them most was not only the intense speed, but the ease of driving the Chiron. By putting the Chiron in the autobahn mode, the Chiron is as easy to drive around town, as it is jetting down a racetrack.
