Love ’em or hate ’em, it’s impossible to ignore Mansory. Whatever you think of their style, the quality of their work is undeniable. So Mansory’s cars are not cheap. And this one-off Bugatti Chiron, which Mansory has just put on the market, is extremely not cheap. Like £3.8 million not cheap.
The Chiron in question was built for this year’s Geneva Motor Show, where it proved as controversial as ever. It’s called Centuria for reasons that aren’t entirely clear.
Understandably, Mansory left the 8.0-litre, twin-turbo W16 engine well alone, so the Centuria basically has a dress-up pack of exterior and interior add-ons.
The additions include a reprofiled front apron, side skirts and rear bumper, all made from “crushed” carbonfibre. Various bits of the standard bodywork – including the rear spoiler – have been remade in crushed carbon, as well.
Inside, the Centuria has been retrimmed in several shades of blue, with extremely intricate detailing.
A set of one-off Centuria wheels measuring 20in at the front and 21in at the back finish it off.
The Chiron is among the most expensive cars currently on sale, with a list price of around £2 million – depending on how nuts the buyer goes with the options list. Mansory has put the Centuria on the market for EUR 4,250,000 – just under £3.8 million.
Even at that price, we’re sure Mansory will have little trouble selling it on. Whether or not that’s a good thing, we leave for you to decide.
