VAUGHAN, ON, July 18, 2017 /CNW/ - If knowledgeable car enthusiasts thought they spotted the rarest, fastest and most exclusive sports car in the world prowling the roads around Toronto recently, it was no mirage: The spectacular new Bugatti Chiron made a special visit to Grand Touring Automobiles this week.
The Grand Touring Uptown facility hosted one of just two stops in Canada for the Chiron's first visit to this country, an exclusive opportunity for a very select group of dedicated and discerning enthusiasts to experience what many experts are calling the most powerful, the fastest and the most sophisticated sporting car in history.
The sensational buzz around the Chiron has made it the focus of attention in the sporting car world and the subject of fawning magazine stories since the car first debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March of 2016. Interest goes far beyond its dramatic design and for a car landing in Canada, the base price is $3.093USD. Its 420 km/h top speed, breathtaking acceleration (0 to 100km/h in less than 3 seconds) and seemingly impossible engine output figures (1,479 hp/1,180 lb.-ft. of torque) propel the car to the pinnacle of automotive performance before it turns a wheel.
"Everything about the Bugatti Chiron is simply sensational," explains Grand Touring Automobiles president and chief executive officer Paul Cummings. "Providing an opportunity for our customers to see and experience this automobile in an exclusive, private program tailored to their schedule was just something we had to do for them. The Chiron is just that extraordinary."
Two dozen Grand Touring Automobile customers enjoyed a private viewing of the car and the opportunity to drive it with the company's professional driver. The program tailored the intimate events to the guests' schedule and hosted an elegant Yorkville reception for the car and customers.
Grand Touring Automobiles has already sold three of the very few Bugatti Chirons allocated to Canada. "Only a handful of these cars will be sold in this area," Cummings says, "but the mystique of the Bugatti brand and the rare opportunity to experience this truly remarkable automobile makes its visit here the kind of event we simply need to share with our customers."
