Bugatti Chiron is capable of reaching the top speed of 280 km/h, but it’s electronically limited to 261 mph due to safety limitations, especially tires. No tire company manufactured the tire which can resist such fast speeds for a longer time.
Production of Bugatti Chiron
Bugatti produced only 60 units of Bugatti Chiron in 2016 offering an astonishing price of $2.6 million each. Out of them, half of them were reserved before the release of this supercar by paying an advance deposit of €200,000 before their purchase
Bugatti manufactured Chiron at a small factory in Molsheim, France. The production was a sophisticated process because just 20 employees assembled it by hand from more than 1,800 parts.
