Building a car by hand can take some time, more so if you’re making one of the world’s fastest cars like the Bugatti Chiron. Well, after more than two years since it was first shown at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the French carmaker has announced that is has produced its 100th unit of the successor to the Veyron. Only 500 Chirons will ever be made.

UPDATE: There’s now a much, much cheaper version of the Chiron if you don’t mind a few shortcomings.

This particular Chiron you see here will go a customer in the Middle East who paid about 2.85 million euros (RM13,275,745) for it. Naturally, it features a few personalised touches that are done according to the customer’s specifications, which were submitted during visits to the L‘Atelier at Bugatti’s French headquarters in Molsheim, Alsace.

According to the car’s builders, the exterior of the car consists entirely of dark blue carbon that comes in a matte blue finish for the first time. To create some contrast, the side line is painted bright Italian red, while the wheels are finished in mink black.

As for the full-leather interior, red is the dominant colour of choice. The engine remains unchanged, with the 8.0 litre quad-turbo W16 unit producing 1,500 PS and 1,600 Nm of torque, which is good for an electronically-limited top speed of 420 km/h – Bugatti has yet to set an unrestricted top speed test.

“I find the 100th Chiron especially pleasing. It is dynamic and elegant in equal measure. This car shows that Bugatti produces highly individualized masterpieces of automobile craftsmanship that are simply unparalleled,” said Stephan Winkelmann, president of Bugatti.

Even after delivery, the owner of this Chiron will continue to be supported by the carmaker thanks to the car’s real-time telemetry system and a team of three “flying doctors.” The former supports two-way communication, allowing data to be transmitted from the Bugatti to the customer service centre and vice versa. Even an issue such as a slightly underinflated tyre can be picked up and reported.
