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
