With its appearance at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed in the South of England, Bugatti is more than doing justice to its status as the manufacturer of the ultimate super sports car. With eight vehicles from its recent past, the French luxury brand is bringing as many as 9,404 horsepower onto the lawn at Goodwood House near Chichester (West Sussex) this weekend.
The cars include six Veyron 16.4, one of which is a pre-series car from 2005, a fantastic Veyron 16.4 Pur Sang from 2007 (both 1001 HP), a 1,200 HP Super Sport from the World Record Edition (2010) and the 1,200 HP Grand Sport Vitesse, which took the world speed record for production roadsters in 2013. However the crowning highlight of the presentation is the new 1,500 HP Chiron1. Two examples of the world’s most powerful, fastest, most exclusive and most luxurious production super sports car are on show at Goodwood, the first customer vehicle for the United Kingdom and a Chiron which has travelled to Goodwood direct from Bugatti’s headquarters in Molsheim to thrill visitors on the legendary hill climb – piloted by British racing driver and Le Mans winner Andy Wallace. The Goodwood Festival of Speed is being held from 29 June to 2 July 2017.
