Bugatti opened a showroom at La Rascasse

Monaco and its streets are home to one of the most interesting and perhaps the most difficult races in Formula 1, and it is considered the jewel of the F1 calendar. This place is very important for Bugatti, for which it has good memories, and now the company has opened a showroom in this location.

Bugatti, which achieved victory in the first Monaco Grand Prix in 1929, competed with the Type 35B car driven by William Charles Frederick Grover. Louis Chiron, the Bugatti driver after whom the Chiron model was named, was also born in Monaco in 1899. He won the same race (Monaco Grand Prix) 32 years later, and although Bugatti is not currently in Formula 1, the brand has returned to one of its “spiritual homes”.

The salon is located in the legendary La Rascasse, and the Bugatti W16 Mistral has a central position in the salon. During the opening, guests could also see unique cars such as La Voiture Noire, one of ten Centodieci hypercars produced in honor of the EB110 model, the Divo and the hand-painted Chiron Pur Sport known as the Gran Prix.

Bugatti Mistral is powered by a centrally located turbocharged 8-liter W16 engine with 1,600 hp (1,177 kW) and 1,180 lb-ft (1,600 Nm) of torque. The same engine powers the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. It reaches 62 mph (100 km / h) in just 2.4 seconds, 124 mph (200 km / h) in 5.8 seconds, and 186 mph (300 km / h) in about 12 seconds. The top speed that the Bugatti Mistral can reach is electronically limited to 273 mph (440 km / h). Power is transmitted to all wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
