Bugatti’s 400th Chiron Leaves French Factory

400 down, 100 Chirons to go as Bugatti hits milestone

  • Chiron production is now 80 percent complete

  • 400th car finished in bare carbon with a green tint


With a boutique exotic car like the Bugatti Chiron, it’s hard to know just how many vehicles have left the factory. Not anymore, because Bugatti is celebrating and telling us exactly how many it has crafted. This is the 400th Bugatti Chiron, which is about the number of Ford F-Series pickups that company builds in three hours.

Bugatti proudly proclaims that none of its cars will be exactly like any other, so how is car 400 specced out? It’s finished in visible carbon fibre with a green clearcoat. So it looks green from afar but is bare carbon up close. Yes, it’s a really cool effect.

The car wears Super Sport wheels and has the cover for its W16 engine finished in “Nocturne.” Some of the exterior detailing, like the Horseshoe grille and EB logo wheel covers are coloured in “Fierce,” whatever that means.

Matching the inside to the outside, the car gets a mix of green and beluga black leather, with black anodized parts.

During the run of 400 cars, Bugatti has made nine different special editions. Sport models, anniversary models, and even 20 that honoured the French Air Force. Bugatti says it still plans to build 500 total Chirons before it moves on to other things, and we expect more special editions to come.

Car 500 won’t mark the end of the W16 hypercar, though. Bugatti says that the Mistral roadster and track-only Bolide will keep it alive for at least a bit longer.
