Both will be on display during Monterey Car Week.
Monterey Car Week brings together the most wealthy collectors in the world for a variety of automotive events, and this year’s visitors get the unique chance to see Bugatti Chiron and Vision Gran Turismo side by side for the first time anywhere. The pair will be on display together at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering, and you’ll spot the Vision Gran Turismo on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, too.
While Bugatti will display the hypercars as a promotion for the Chiron, the cars no longer technically belong to the company. The automaker just announced on Instagram (below) that it sold both of them to “a car enthusiast and Bugatti lover from Saudi Arabia.” According to Auto Evolution, the customer was Prince Badr bin Saud, grandson of the deceased King Abdullah.
If you’re wondering how the prince has a Chiron when customer deliveries don’t begin until this fall, it’s because he owns the example from the display at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Bugatti only hints at the high price of such exclusivity in its Instagram message. “The customer was awarded the contract after submitting the most convincing bid.”
The pair of hypercars should look stunning even among the other exclusive vehicles at The Quail. The Vision Gran Turismo debuted at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, and the coupe previewed the Chiron’s shape. A video also provided a brief chance to hear the concept’s bellowing engine. The Chiron’s debut came a few months later in Geneva, and the 200 buyers have already ordered one, according to Bugatti.
