With production of the Bugatti Chiron hitting 200 earlier this year and only a small fraction of those being in the Chiron Sport spec, not only most of us will never get close to one, but we probably won’t even see it during our daily commutes.
Thus, unless we win the lottery or inherit a huge amount of money from an uncle we did not know we had, it remains out of reach for us mortals.
