Hi guys, I know the Bugattis Veyron and Chiron by Autoart were made with a very limited number but wondering what's the exact number?. For example, the Murcielago 40th Anniversary were made with only 2000 pieces worldwide, what about the Bugattis?, any idea?, thanks.

It doesn't say it's limited production anywhere specifically from AUTOart, the "certificate" only has the serial number of the model. So I guess all you can do is see what the highest serial number you have seen online...

It's 5000 each (at least, that's what Gateway Global Canada told me)
Me, I got those serial:

Bugatti EB 18.3 Chiron (#4733/5000) blue
Bugatti EB 16.4 Veyron (#1509/5000) titanium/silver

Can someone explain the differences between the two cars and does the models reflect these differences.

I think I know the answer to the later, but thought I would ask anyways :giggle

Bugatti EB 16.4 Veyron Specifications:

The mid-engine Veyron's original power unit was an 18-cylinder but this has been replaced by a 90-degree W-16 which first powered a Veyron prototype in August 2002, displaces an ample 488 cubic inches. Equipped with four turbochargers, this powerplant is now developing a staggering 1200 BPH. It will be detuned to only 1001 horsepower (a mere 987 ponies in U.S. trim) for production. The Veyron will be finished by VW's Audi/ Lamborghini/Bentley entities. Italy will be the source for its carbon-fiber monocoque and body panels.

It's four-wheel-drive system and twin-clutch seven-speed transaxle, which will take the new Bugatti to 155 mph in fourth gear, 193 in fifth, 224 in sixth, and a record-shattering 252 mph in seventh. Redline at 8000 RPM and capable of 0-60 mph in 2.9 sec. Bugatti expects to produce some 300 Veyrons. Orders are already rolling in for this ultimate conversation piece, priced at $1,175,000.

Bugatti EB 18.3 Chiron Specifications:

This 18 cylinder supercar was meant to become the successor to the already legendary EB 110. With it's four-wheel-drive system and it's mid-engine producing 555 Bhp at 6800 rpm, making the top speed of 186 mph. The Chiron was built on a Lamborghini Diablo VT platform, using the exact same four-wheel drive Visco-Traction system.....That's as much info I can get you on the Chiron....sorry!

Does anyone find it unusual that there will be more diecast versions produced than 1:1?

I know that this makes sense when model makers produce cars with a historic significance, but when the die cast production of a new 1:1 exceeds the actual production of the road version, it makes me wonder just what is trying to be accomplished?

Reminds me of "paint scheme of the week" for Nascar diecast, and if you are into a certain driver, the die cast manufacturer has you hooked.

JMHO

:cheers

I would be surprised that someone from that office quoted you those numbers since the actual amount made of each color has never been released to anyone. They are all limited ed. models but I don't think that they all have the same production numbers.
Remember that we need to make on average 10k units just to break even and there are 4 variations of the Veyrons on the market now. So, do the math.
I unfortunatly do not have the overall production numbers and we might never know what they are. But I can tell you that each color has a different production number.
I realize that this does not help you at all with your question but I do not have an acurate answer to give you about the exact production numbers for these.

Like I said.......Global Gateway Canada gave me that answer, so I'm just sayin' what I've been told. It's not my problem if they lied to me by telling me a fictional number. Don't shoot the messenger!!! :scared

Is anyone even sure that there isn't more than 4K units produced :confused

Reading Denis' post, I don find a comfortable validity in those numbers of 5K pieces.
