Bugatti says the car on show at Geneva has been produced for a customer from Switzerland, and there are eight carbon colours available to choose for the Chiron.

So far all examples of the cars have been sold without any customers having driven the car and deliveries for the first orders are expected over the next few days, according to Bugatti. Chiron buyers will be invited to an exclusive test drive event at the end of March.

The Chiron is powered by a 1479bhp quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 and can reach 62mph from a standstill in less than 2.5sec with a maximum top speed of 261mph.

It costs almost £2million, there are still 250 units available and Bugatti says it will be strictly limited to 500 models.

I can't wait until we get to the special edition made from platinum, polished to a mirror like shine by celestial angels rocketed in from Venus.

Meanwhile, down at dingleydell, under the widdleydumb-dumb tree

... the VW group was telling even bigger, fatter lies about half the 500 cars being sold. Seems to be a bit of a 'grey' area of interpretation over an order being placed and a car being sold...
