Auto baron Herb Chambers plans to show off a car today that definitely lacks a rebate Ã¢â‚¬â€ a $1.7 million Bugatti thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 dealerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“Cars and CoffeeÃ¢â‚¬Â series, where local collectors display their rides.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I always wanted a Bugatti Ã¢â‚¬â€ so when I got the opportunity to buy one, I did,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Chambers, who purchased his vehicle directly from Volkswagen-owned BugattiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s French factory six months ago.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 features a 1,000-horsepower quad-turbocharged engine that can go 235 mph.
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just 15 mph slower than the modelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sister Bugatti Super Sport, the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fastest production car.
ChambersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ 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 Ã¢â‚¬Å“Cars and CoffeeÃ¢â‚¬Â events, which also feature some two-dozen new cars from ChambersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ dealerships and as many as 150 vehicles that other local collectors bring.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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,Ã¢â‚¬Â Chambers said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Cars and CoffeeÃ¢â‚¬Â 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.
