Bugatti Chiron and its $700,000 paint job


For its over ten year production run, the Bugatti Veyron remained to be, for the most part, the fastest and one of the most powerful vehicles in existence and what some might say was the first proper hypercar of its kind. Now the Veyron didn’t come cheap either back when it was unveiled in the early 2000’s.

It supported a price tag of over US$ 1million at launch, and over the years as more and more variants, and special editions were introduced the price tag just kept increasing. Fast forward to 2018, and we now have its replacement model, the Bugatti Chiron; a 1500bhp hypercar that is soon expected to break the speed record for production cars, and the base model comes in at a cool US$ 2.5million, and that is before you get to the options list.

Choosing a different set of rims, or ordering a bespoke custom interior for your Chiron can cost you upwards of ten’s of thousands of dollars, but what is the most expensive option that you can spec out on your Chiron? Well, it appears that would be the paint job or in this case the lack thereof. One particular Bugatti Chiron was spotted roaming the streets of London with the full exposed exterior carbon body pack, a US$700,000 option that will allow you to run your Chiron without any exterior body paint exposing the lavish Carbon Fibre bodywork of the panels for everyone around you to admire.

To put this number into context, 700k in this current market can buy a brand new highly speced Lamborghini Aventador S for all your race track and flamboyancy needs as well as a Bentley Bentayga that could serve as the perfect daily driver. While the option may be ludicrously expensive, it does help to bring out the aggressive lines of the Chiron even more while looking stunning at the same time. Especially with this example where the owner has accented the car with blue stripes that match the interior upholstery. And we’re sure it surprises no one here to learn that the owner of this particular hyper car is from Qatar.
