So, when you decide to purchase a new piece of technology or a new car, you probably make it a point to test it for yourself before actually committing to your purchase and signing on the dotted line, right? Well, for most of us, that’s the smart thing to do. Hell, I couldn’t buy a $3,000 winter beater without giving it a long drive to make sure it’s worthy of my ownership. Plus, it helps to tell you whether or not the car is worth the hype. But, when it comes to those with deep pockets and a love for supercars, apparently things go a little differently as shown by the fact that someone just ordered the 250th Bugatti Chiron. This means that half of the models planned for production have officially been spoken for.
That’s good news for Bugatti and the Chiron, but what does it tell us about those with excessive amounts of money to spend? Well, they certainly don’t have commitment or trust issues. After all, all 250 of those who have bit the bullet and signed up for Bugatti’s next four-wheeled rocket, never test drove the car. And for the record, Bugatti is proud of this, as expressed by Wolfgang Durheimer, the President of Bugatti, when he said, “The fact that we have already taken orders for half of the Chiron series even without test drives so far bears witness to the great confidence of our customers in our brand and its strong aura.”
But, that story will change soon as, by the end of March, the Bugatti is planning a central test-drive event where those already on the list and other prospective customers will have the chance to get behind the wheel. But still, we’re talking about a $2.4 million car. The price in itself should be enough to prove that the car will be top notch – we all know that you get what you pay for – I just don’t think I could commit to such a large purchase without knowing how comfortable the car is, or how it drives, among other things. But, to each their own, I guess.
