A savvy supercar owner is set to cash in with a cool £1 million profit when he sells his nearly new, 1,000-mile Bugatti Chiron – the first ‘used’ example to be offered in the UK.
While simply driving the majority of new cars off the forecourt can wipe thousands off their value, the 261mph supercar has bucked the trend and soared in value to £3.6 million – an increase of £1.1 million over its list price of £2.5 million.
On sale at specialist supercar dealer Romans International in Surrey, the Bugatti Chiron is the most powerful, the fastest, the most luxurious and the most exclusive production super sports car. The black Chiron is one of the very first ones to be delivered in the UK with Bugatti set to build 500 examples over the next 10 years.
If the Bugatti wasn’t special enough already, its owner ticked the options for a leather and carbon interior at an eye-popping £53,000 and carbon fibre seats for nearly £16,000 – the latter the price of a new, near top-of-the range Ford Fiesta.
So that makes a new Bugatti a rekitive bargain and if you place an order today you will be waiting at least three or four years before the car is built and delivered. Hence the reason why such a used example is retailing more than cost of a new Chiron.
