Auto baron Herb Chambers plans to show off a car today that definitely lacks a rebate â€” a $1.7 million Bugatti thatâ€™s one of just 300 such cars in existence.
Chambers will wheel out his personal Bugatti Veyron 16.4 at Herb Chambers Porsche/Audi of Burlington as part of the dealerâ€™s â€œCars and Coffeeâ€ series, where local collectors display their rides.
â€œI always wanted a Bugatti â€” so when I got the opportunity to buy one, I did,â€ said Chambers, who purchased his vehicle directly from Volkswagen-owned Bugattiâ€™s French factory six months ago.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 features a 1,000-horsepower quad-turbocharged engine that can go 235 mph.
Thatâ€™s just 15 mph slower than the modelâ€™s sister Bugatti Super Sport, the worldâ€™s fastest production car.
Chambersâ€™ Bugatti is one of roughly two-dozen super-premium models in his personal car collection, which also includes a $4 million McLaren F-1 and a $1.2 million Ferrari Daytona Spyder.
The auto baron often displays vehicles in his collection at his free â€œCars and Coffeeâ€ events, which also feature some two-dozen new cars from Chambersâ€™ dealerships and as many as 150 vehicles that other local collectors bring.
â€œItâ€™s all about getting (auto enthusiasts) together and giving them a chance to talk about their cars and see all of our different production vehicles,â€ Chambers said.
â€œCars and Coffeeâ€ will take place from 7 to 10 a.m. today, with Red Sox slugger Kevin Youkilis on hand from 8 to 9 a.m., at Herb Chambers Porsche/Audi, 62 Cambridge St., Burlington.
