Molsheim/Goodwood, June 24, 2016.

The venue for its first public appearance in the United Kingdom could hardly be more appropriate for the Bugatti Chiron1. The motto of this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed is “Full Throttle - The Endless Pursuit of Power”. The Bugatti super sports car with 1,500 PS and a top speed of 420 km/h limited for road use is being presented at the legendary hill climb – piloted by British racing driver and Le Mans winner Andy Wallace. The Goodwood Festival of Speed is being held from June 23 to 26, 2016.
“As the most powerful and fastest production super sports car in the world, the Chiron embodies the motto of this year’s event like no other car in its class,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. “We are pleased to be able to present the Chiron at this highly traditional event as its UK premiere and would like to thank Lord March for his hospitality.” Andy Wallace, who has been an official Bugatti driver since 2011, will pilot the Chiron at the Goodwood hill climb this weekend. The former British racing driver and Le Mans legend is looking forward to the occasion. “It is a great honour for me to drive this exceptional vehicle at such a fantastic event, especially since this will be its premiere in my home country. I’m sure this will be a highlight of the festival.”
Bugatti is currently preparing for the start of series production of the 1,500 PS Chiron at the company’s headquarters in Molsheim, Alsace. The super sports car is to be produced in a limited series of 500 vehicles. More than 200 customers have already ordered their Chiron and the first vehicle is due to be delivered to a customer in the autumn of 2016.
Since 1993, the Goodwood Festival of Speed has been one of the international highlights in the calendar for motorsports enthusiasts and fans of racing cars of all vintages. Every year in June, about 200,000 visitors flock to Goodwood House to the north of Chichester (West Sussex). The highlight of the event is the famous hill climb; the vehicles entering this event drive over a 1.16 mile (1.86 km) course with nine bends over the hill at Goodwood. The 23rd Festival of Speed is being held from June 23 to 26, 2016. The Bugatti stand is near to the Supercar Paddock.
1 Near-production vehicle – not subject to Directive 1999/94/EC, as a general operating permit has not yet been issued

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016:
Lord March drives the Bugatti Chiron

At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed Lord March, host of the legendary motor sports event, could not resist the opportunity to drive the Bugatti Chiron1 up the famous ”Hill Climb“ track. More than 55,000 enthused spectators saw him drive on the narrow 1.16 mile (1.866 kilometres) course on Sunday accompanied by British race driver and Le Mans winner Andy Wallace. Lord March said after the Chiron drive: "In terms of an overall automotive experience that was at the very top. Unbelievable power, yet unbelievably drivable – a full rush for all the senses.”
