Bugatti is building just 60 examples of the Chiron Pur Sport and unfortunately, one of those rare examples was recently involved in a minor collision in the U.S.
A video and photos recently emerged on social media showing a two-tone black and grey Chiron Pur Sport parked on the side of the road alongside a Toyota Corolla resting on a patch of grass next to the road. It quickly emerged that the Chiron Pur Sport in question is a demo car currently at Bugatti St. Louis and also appears to have been the same car driven and reviewed by journalists in recent weeks.
According to reports, the rare French hypercar was on a test drive at the time and while neither Bugatti itself nor the dealer are commenting on the incident, an Instagram user claims to know exactly what happened.
According to KRN Speed, the Chiron Pur Sport is said to have hit the Toyota from behind. The incident appears to have happened on either April 1 or April 2 and it is claimed the driver of the Bugatti was speeding at the time.
Interestingly, the hypercar appears largely free of damage in the video and photos but, according to KRN Speed, that’s not actually the case. In fact, the front end of the Chiron Pur Sport is said to have suffered damage to its precious carbon fiber valued at upwards of $200,000, although that figure remains unconfirmed. Damage sustained to the Corolla appears limited to a large dent on the rear bumper.
