Used Bugatti Chiron could net owner $2.1m profit

A supercar owner could be set to cash in a cool $2.1 million profit when he sells his near-new Bugatti Chiron.
While simply driving the majority of new cars off the dealership floor can wipe thousands off their value, the Chiron has soared from a brand new list price of $4.7 million, to an estimated resale value of $6.8 million.
The Bugatti, limited to a production run of 500 units over the next 10 years, is now being advertised as the 'UK's first used Chiron' by Romans International, a car dealer specialising in supercars. This particular Chiron was one of the first models to arrive in the UK only four months ago, and in that time has clocked up 1,000 miles (1609km).
The first owner also opted for a few pricey extras. A leather and carbon interior pack is fitted at an eye-watering $100,500, and carbon fibre seats for nearly $30,000.
But it's not just the new price or extras that have made this Chiron soar in value, Tom Jaconelli, Director of Romans International, says the waiting list for a new Bugatti is playing into the current owners hands.
“Although the Chiron is not yet sold out, if you place an order today you will be waiting at least three or four years before the car could be built and delivered," said Jaconelli.
"So we are offering the chance to ‘jump the queue,’ but of course there is a hefty premium to pay for this privilege."
“We often see the world’s most beautiful and expensive cars in our showroom but the Bugatti Chiron is the ultimate, it’s the most desirable car in the world today and we’re thrilled to have the first example openly for sale on the market.”
Romans International say that this year they've already sold a Maserati MC12 and a pair of Ferrari LaFerraris, with all three of those supercars approaching prices of $5.7m each - but they expect their latest listing to fetch far more.
The Chiron is now listed online, with the dealer accepting 'expressions of interest' with price on application.
