THE BLACKBOOK is highly privileged to have options access to 3 very special cars that represent the pinnacle of their respective classes. Although most enthusiasts will agree that these cars are really in a class by themselves.
Big shoes to fill
In 2005, Bugatti redefined the supercar category with the debut of the Veyron. Some auto pundits would say that this marked the beginning of the hypercar era. With a top speed of 253 miles per hour and an original starting price of $1.7 million, super just doesn’t do the machine justice.
Fast forward to 2016 and Bugatti’s long awaited replacement will start to roll out of French workshops as early as October 2016. The Chiron makes a radical styling statement but still screams Bugatti. The 8 liter, 16 cylinder powerplant carries over from the Veyron but horsepower in the Chiron explodes to almost 1500 from the Veyron’s still astonishing 1001.
Four turbochargers, a high performance carbon fiber body and all wheel drive propel the Chiron from 0 to 100 km/h in an outstanding 2.4 seconds and tops out at an electronically limited 261 mph.
THE BLACKBOOK has access to 2 of these fine examples with deliveries available in October 2016 or January to March 2017. The machines can be configured to the prospective owner’s specs and can be delivered worldwide. Scroll down to send a confidential inquiry.
Three Pedals and No Turbo…Best Porsche Ever
The iconic 911 silhouette has not changed much since its debut in 1963. Since then, Porsche fans have witnessed the fast evolution of the 911 from a practical and personal sports car to a track ready, highly tuned race car. This version of the 911 embraces and champions Porsche’s intriguing racing and track history. The R in 911-R quietly stands for ‘racing’ but the subtlety ends at the nameplate.
Porsche already had supercar level performance in the GT3 and and GT3 RS but Porsche enthusiasts bemoaned the lack of a true manual gearbox on those cars. Porsche heeded the wants of its customers and unleashed the 6 speed, fully manual 911-R.
The massive tail of the GT3 car was deleted in the name of saving weight and certain body panels were crafted in carbon fiber. The 911-R comes in at a track ready 3020 lbs and considering it is powered by a naturally aspirated, 4.0 liter 6 cylinder boxer engine that produces 500 horsepower, the 911-R makes ever day driving a track experience.
THE BLACKBOOK is proud to have access to a car that can be delivered in the first three months of 2017. For more information, please scroll down and complete the secure form.
