A dream hypercar with a Toyota engine.
Only 500 Chiron hypercars will be built by Bugatti, with the last vehicles anticipated to depart the factory in Molsheim, France, by the end of this year. Because all 500 Chirons have been sold, no one will be able to purchase a brand new Chiron. Although the used automobile market is a possibility, we understand if you believe spending a few million dollars on a used car is a bad idea. You can always create your ideal car if you can’t afford to buy it.
Of course, that’s an exaggeration, but a group of young Vietnamese inspired us to believe that everybody can possess a Bugatti Chiron. We don’t know if any authentic Chirons have been delivered to customers in Vietnam, but we do know that this imitation is one of the coolest we’ve ever seen. Apart from the Toyota-sourced engine, it was developed from the ground up with no parts from other vehicles.
The video at the top of this page summarises the talented people’s year of hard work. From the very beginning to the moment the Bugatti replica was ready to be driven, these 47 minutes will show you many of the steps through which the project progressed. And, to be honest, we’re blown away by the engineering, the resemblance to the original, and the execution excellence. Simply fantastic work!
These guys are clay royalty, faithfully reproducing the shape of the Chiron both inside and out. The team’s level of ingenuity is also impressive, as evidenced by their use of gaming chairs as sports bucket seats in the cabin. The headlights are aftermarket units, but their design gives the front end the finest Bugatti appearance possible. And the back end is incredible — it’s as close to the original Chiron as one can get.
The project is not finished, as you can see from the video. The inside, which is still in terrible shape, need a lot of work. Seeing how good the team is, however, we have no doubt the cabin will be at least as cool as the exterior. Keep up the awesome job, folks!
