Founded in 2014, the Supercar Owners Circle (SOC) is a highly exclusive group of hyper- and supercar owners who come together once a year to show off the power of their automobiles. Bugatti owners consider such gatherings as valuable opportunities to express their admiration for the brand and showcase their respect for automotive excellence.
Five Bugattis were in attendance during the Supercar Owners Circle Croatia Weekend from 3-5 September. Beginning with a scenic parade in the nation’s capital, Zagreb, the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, driven by Bugatti’s Officiel and racing legend Andy Wallace, stood out among the vast fleet of globally distinguished automobiles.
Croatia’s mountain passes are famous for their twisting turns, demanding the very best of automobiles that travel on them. The Chiron Pur Sport, designed as the most agile and dynamic Chiron ever made with its high downforce set-up, conquered Croatia’s complex and waving mountain roads with ease, down to the Adriatic Coast. Bugatti owners have already enjoyed part of this beautiful landscape on the Bugatti Grand Tour in 2015. The Chiron Pur Sport is powered by the legendary 8.0-liter W16 engine with 1,500 PS and torque output of 1,600 newton meters. With a 15 per cent shorter transmission ratio, the Chiron Pur Sport takes just 2.3 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h.
Four additional Bugattis are owned by passionate customers of the brand. Leading the group was the Divo, which saw Bugatti return to its roots of coachbuilding with a 21st-century re-imagination of the marque’s masterpieces of old. With its highly striking design, the Divo sets a new standard for coachbuilding in the modern era.
Enhancing Bugatti’s presence throughout the weekend of driving pleasure was a customer-owned Bugatti Chiron Sport, Chiron and Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse joined the event.
