Bugatti’s next special edition will be unveiled during 2019 Monterey Car Week, the automaker confirmed to Road and Track in a statement made on Tuesday.
Since launching the Chiron two years ago, Bugatti has added special coach-built versions of the 1,480-horsepower hypercar built in extremely small runs. In the case of the La Voiture Noire unveiled earlier this year, we’re talking just one car.
It was during the 2018 Monterey Car Week that Bugatti showed off the Divo, which Bugatti is building in a run of 40 cars. It isn’t clear how many examples of the new special edition will be built, but it’s expected that there will be more than one, and no doubt some of the build slots have already been sold.
Bugatti design chief Frank Heyl in June said the company is building the special cars to meet growing demand from mega-wealthy car lovers. He said there were hundreds of buyers looking to take home a special Bugatti, and most of them already own one or more of the French marque’s cars.
To meet this demand, Bugatti plans to introduce two special editions each year.
This year’s Monterey Car Week runs the week starting August 11. It concludes on August 18 with the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. For our complete coverage on the event, head to our dedicated hub.
