As we say goodbye to the legendary 8.0L Quad-Turbocharged W16, a very lucky collector is looking to secure Bugatti’s most famous example.
With new guidelines and regulations throughout the automotive industry, brands are faced with the sad future of discontinuing the production of traditional high-horsepower mechanical engines. While the EV market has proved its worth with state-of-the-art technology that shatters current performance figures, collectors and enthusiasts can agree that there’s nothing quite like the sound of a roaring quad-turbocharged W16. In collaboration with the auction specialists at RM Sotheby’s, the hypercar pioneers at Bugatti are prepping to auction off the last available Chiron powered by its legendary W16 engine this week. The Bugatti Chiron Profilée stands aside other recent milestones such as the W16 Mistral, Bolide, and all variations of the iconic Chiron.

The Profilée showcases itself as the only one to exist without plans to ever recreate another, making it one of the most desirable examples in Bugatti’s modern history. The inspiration behind the exclusive build comes as a response to customer demand, requesting something more radical than the Chiron Sport yet less extreme than the Chiron Pur Sport. The car recently arrived at Paris’s famous Carrousel du Louvre, where it will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s – Lot 177/200. Capturing the attention of eager collectors looking to secure a piece of automotive history, bidding for the one-of-a-kind Bugatti Profilée is set to begin at 10 AM EST on February 1st.
