French luxury brand Bugatti is know for it’s line up of luxurious super sports cars like “Bugatti Veyron Super Sport” that are not just some fast sports car but must have if you have nerve or two for cars and millions of dollars lying in your bank a/c. The world takes notes when they releases any new models… and the world went crazy when this beauty called “Chiron” The case is almost the same when a diecast maker breaks a news about these beauties.. Bugatti’s official replication licences were only with premium brands like AUTOart, Minichamps and super high-end resin brands like BBR! Then things begin to change when Raster got 1:18 licence for the “Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse” and now the wind is drifting the favor to the Bburago fans since this Bugatti Chiron in 1:18 showed up Bburago website/facebook page.
Two colors are shown as a part of the teaser and the red finish looks better! The paint finish may get better on the end result when this diecast model hits a proper assembly line in Bburago factory.
- These pics(though pre-production sample) shows some details and they are on par with other Bburago 1:18 models. The body work is nice, the grill work is acceptable and the optics are far better the other models from the 1:18 line up. This Bugatti comes with full opening features as well.
- Expected in two color combinations so you have a option of getting it in Red/Black or Blue/Black. Both the color of these Bugatti Chiron comes with a luxurious interiors finished in beige. The shut line looks ok but we could always do good with bit more tighter lines near the doors! The disappointing part for me in this entire package is the wheels!! The wheels lacks details even for a pre-production model… the chrome finish is a little too much, a machine finish would take this model north.
This blue variant of Bugatti Chiron shows a little bit of more details… like the engine cover details, W16 engine casting and the most important feature here the working spoiler, which doubles as an air brake.
- The rear-end of most Bugattis are plain except for those massive engine covers! But this Bugatti Chiron holds some nice details like the full length chrome strip linking those two rear optics. AUTOart mostly gets a see-tru grills but this being a value for money diecast models comes with just the texture just like the one in the front. I also love the twin exhaust and those nicely detailed air dam. Finally lets come to the pricing part… Just like the Ferrari 1:18 scale models this is expected to be in the same budget level. There is no words from Bburago that this will end up in the “Signature Series” bucket but lets hope it does as this Bugatti Chiron deserves to be made in Signature variant. Will keep you posted on any updates coming. Ciao.
