People who choose cars such as the Bugatti Chiron do so because they want a vehicle that makes a jaw-dropping impact on the roads, and someone in Harare has just parted with close to US$3 million to get the Bugatti Chiron.
The Chiron is the fastest, most powerful, and exclusive production super sports car in Bugatti’s history.
A video has emerged online showing the Chiron, with fluid curves and angrily squinting headlights, driving into Defence House – the headquarters of Zimbabwe’s military in Harare’s CBD.
Disbelieving soldiers manning the entrance are heard on the video first asking each other what they are looking at, before it dawns on them that it is a Bugatti – one of the world’s most expensive cars.
The supercar is for the most well-heeled among us, for whom the average run-of-the-mill supercar may fall short of fulfilling expectations. The Chiron costs almost $3 million, and it’s about as exotic as hypercars get.
The identity of the owner of the supercar remains unknown, nor the purpose of the trip to Defence House, but it comes barely six months after Zanu-PF MP for Gokwe-Nembudziya, Justice Mayor Wadyajena, landed a Lamborghini Urus at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport in Harare.
The Bugatti Chiron is a mid-engine two-seater sports car developed and manufactured in Molsheim, France by French automobile manufacturer Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.
Its sophisticated design, innovative technology, and iconic, performance-oriented form make it a unique masterpiece of art, form and technique, that pushes boundaries beyond imagination.
The successor to the Bugatti Veyron, the Chiron was first shown at the Geneva Motor Show on 1 March 2016.
