A rare $5 million Bugatti makes a scene in public
Automotive YouTuber Shmee150 is currently documenting Europe’s most elusive cars on his grand tour of the continent. Launching the final chapter of his adventure, he stood in front of his Lamborghini Huracán STO. With a purple wrap, this track-focused Lamborghini is certainly eye-catching. Behind it is its daily driver Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, a more comfortable and subtle show of wealth. Scattered around a dealership in Munich are Alpina XB7s, G Wagons and the hugely successful GR Yaris. Almost any gearhead would gladly accept one of these items into their personal collections. A model from this Munich dealer blows everything else away. A Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, the pinnacle of hypercars.
The Chiron is a real eye-catcher wherever it goes.
Where is the Chiron?
Last month, Shmee found a batch of Lamborghini Venenos and Bugatti Divos. In comparison to the Chiron Super Sport 300+, these seem remarkably common. Essentially the fastest and rarest model of the newer Chiron Super Sport, the 300+ is the rarest and newest Chiron model. Only 30 must leave the doors of the French manufacturer. The nameplate refers to the car’s ability to reach that top speed of 300 mph. According to Bugatti, they are “the first manufacturer to break the seemingly unbreakable 300 mph barrier”. This brought the fight firmly to the Koenigsegg Jesko.
Now in Munich on his big road trip, he ends up at the SEMCO dealership on the outskirts of Munich. According to SEMCO, they “sell exceptional luxury vehicles that exceed even your wildest dreams.” A bold claim, but when you load up their website you’re greeted with an image of a Bugatti Veyron and then a P1. This reflects their stock, which currently includes three Bugattis. They also sell Keoninsegg, Mercedes, Pagani, Porsche and Lamborghini.
However, this dealership will not sell you a base spec high mileage Gallardo or Porsche 911 Carrera. Their Porsche stock at the time of writing includes two 918s and various GT cars. The dealership also offers a range of tuning, body kits and customization for these luxury brands.
How does the public react to a Bugatti?
As the centerpiece of the collection, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ sits in a central dealership location, albeit behind an Aventador. The Chiron Super Sport 300+ has a bold livery that casts an ominous shade of black as its main character. Enhanced with orange accents, the Chiron comes to life. Apart from this livery, the design remains largely the same as a standard Bugatti. Not a word that is frequently used to describe the brand’s vehicles. Sitting in the back are four exhaust pipes, an appropriate number for the W16 engine that sits behind the driver.
Already the envy of gearheads the world over, Shmee follows the Chiron as it hits German roads. Heading into central Munich, it’s not reckless driving. The dealer park the Chiron in the center of Munich. While many car enthusiasts will turn their heads for almost anything that isn’t a sedan or SUV, the whole street is turning to the Chiron Super Sport 300+. Even those not indoctrinated in the car church know that this car is quite special. A collection of Porsche 911s and Ferraris join Shmee’s Lamborghini and Chiron along Maximilianstraße, a scenic road through Munich’s Old Town.
