The Bugatti Chiron He has been with us for six years. Personally, This is offensive to me. I thought Veyron’s successor was four years old at most, but time moves differently now. All of the 500 examples Bugatti initially planned to build have been talked about for a long time, but you wouldn’t expect the world record-chasing automaker to let the ultimate W16 marvel quietly fade away, did you? Meet the Mistral Convertible.
Bugatti plans to make 99 of these Chiron-based convertibles to end the series’ run, and that’s an important detail because Bugatti has never made a Chiron without a roof, despite many orders. “Mistral” is an apt nickname, because it’s also the name for “a strong, cold northwest wind blowing across the Rhone Valley and southern France,” according to Wikipedia. It is my land that we used to call the wind.
The Mistral is powered by the 1.577-horsepower W16-branded eight-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged version, just as the track-focused Bolide and Chiron Super Sport 300+. Bugatti will seek to break the 2013 record for the world’s fastest production roadster with the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, which clocked 254.04 mph. The company expects to beat that by about 7 mph.
Talking to Auto recordBugatti design director Achim Anscheidt said Mistral’s legacy as the brand’s ultimate W16 legacy. Legal way The machine was inherent in its design:
“We were pressured to create something so precious and valuable in a collector’s garage. It’s not just a fashion statement: “Oh, let’s do a roadster!” Or worse, “Let’s just take Chiron and chop it up,” which would have looked bad. It weighs us in with the responsibility that this He’s the last of his kind in this generation and how is that going to sit in those groups,” Anashidt told Autoblog.
I’ve never felt any particular way about the Chiron’s exterior, but the Mistral is a nice evolution of it, borrowing some cues from a few Bugatti limited-running models, like the aforementioned Bolide and La Voiture Noire. It proves that this design works in Convertible silhouette – though, maybe Barchetta It’s the perfect term, because Mistral will come with a temporary cap for “emergency situations,” As Anschedt told Autoblog. This is not a big problem. If you can afford one of these for $5 million and plan on letting it see the sun, you can probably set aside a second Bugatti for rainy days, too.
