Bugatti's Last 1,500-HP Chiron Marks the End of an Era

17 Jan 2024

After eight years of setting the automotive world ablaze, Bugatti has officially announced the end of the road for the Chiron. The last 1,500-horsepower Chiron has rolled off the production line at Bugatti's Molsheim factory, marking the conclusion of a remarkable chapter in the brand's history. However, the saga might not be entirely over, as Bugatti enthusiasts eagerly await what lies ahead.

The Final Model

The Final Model

The spotlight is on the Chiron 1500 PS trim, which Bugatti claims to be the last of its kind. Adorned in the distinctive colors of Nocturne and Copper, this Chiron is far from ordinary. Customized by Bugatti's Sur Measure in-house service, it embodies the epitome of luxury and performance. Despite being labeled the "final" Chiron, it's crucial to clarify that this is merely the last of the base model Chirons, not the conclusion of the Chiron legacy as a whole. 

Bilal Hydrie, a Canadian oil and gas company executive, proudly takes ownership of the final Chiron. Describing himself as an "entrepreneur and risk-taker," Hydrie ordered this exclusive vehicle in November 2021. While he discreetly concealed the pricing details in his social media posts, the revealed digit suggests a price tag surpassing $3,000,000 – a testament to the Chiron's elite status even in its "entry-level" configuration.

As Bugatti bids adieu to the Chiron, speculation is rife about how many more "final" models will roll out of Molsheim before the arrival of the long-awaited successor. With undisclosed numbers of Chiron Pur Sport, Mistral, and Bolide yet to find their owners, the automotive world remains on the edge of its seat, eagerly anticipating the next chapter in Bugatti's illustrious history.

Bugatti's announcement of the last 1,500-HP Chiron marks the end of an era, but the legacy of this iconic hypercar is far from over. As the final Chiron finds its home with Bilal Hydrie, enthusiasts brace themselves for the unveiling of Bugatti's next masterpiece. In the meantime, the anticipation and excitement surrounding the Chiron's successor continue to build, ensuring that Bugatti's legacy of unparalleled performance and luxury will endure for years to come.
