Priced from $5-million USD and limited to 99-units worldwide, the Bugatti W16 Mistral, based on the Chiron, is touted as the ultimate roadster. Power comes from the same engine found in the Chiron Super Sport 300+, an 8.0L W16 generating 1,578 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission, enabling it to hit 60 mph in just 2.2-seconds.
Inside, you won’t find too much of a difference between the Mistral and the Chiron Super Sport 300+, including the luxurious leathers, lightweight titanium and aluminum accents that have been milled from a single block—but. Some upgrades you will see are woven-leather door panels and an amber insert in the gear shifter housing Rembrandt Bugatti’s iconic “dancing elephant” sculpture. Despite the price tag, all 99-units have already been sold, which means anyone looking to purchase one will have to look on the secondary market once deliveries begin.

We know the W16 Mistral will always have significance in the story of Bugatti, marking the last time that perhaps the greatest ever automotive powertrain is used in a roadgoing production car. We, as a design team, felt enormous pressure to deliver styling that immediately conveyed this landmark moment, drawing inspiration from some of the most beautiful roadsters in Bugatti history,” said Achim Anscheidt, Bugatti Design Director.
