Bugatti Chiron Profilée was sold for €9,792,500 at RM Sotheby’s Paris auction, excluding VAT, making the final price higher. This makes the Chiron Profilee the most expensive car ever sold at an auction.
The Bugatti Chiron Profilée was planned as a limited-edition, but it was not produced due to the 500 unit allocation for the Chiron being filled before the Profilée. The Chiron Profilée is designed to be stiffer than the Pur Sport, offering a more dynamic driving experience. It features a fixed rear wing and has a top speed limit of 380 km/h. The engine’s redline has also been increased to 6900 RPM. The 8-lt W16 engine produces 1500 hp.
There is a rumor regarding the Bugatti W16 engine that it is based on either a VW VR engine or an Audi V8. The truth is unknown. However, it is certain that the buyer of the Chiron now possesses the last W16 engine ever built by Bugatti.
