Remember back in the olden days when you’d order something off the so-called Interweb and it would take so long to arrive that you would forget you’d ever bought it? Well, that’s probably what’s happening to eight very rich people in different corners of the globe right now…

That’s because back in 2019, they put down a deposit (or more likely paid the circa £4m asking price in full) for a Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, and eight of the planned 30 cars are now ready for delivery. Result.

It’s been two years of testing and development for the longtail Chiron, with its 8.0-litre, quad-turbo W16 engine kicking out 1,578bhp to break the 300mph barrier. Bugatti says that a new thermal management system was needed for the engine and gearbox of the 300+, as well as new software for the powertrain and the turbochargers in particular. 

Got an order in for one of the remaining 22 examples? Drop us a line if you’ll let TG have a go in it…
