La Maison Bugatti Paris hosted a customer drive event in Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay. French passionates tested the Chiron Sport and Chiron Pur Sport on the premises of the former monastery. Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay is located at the heart of the forest of Rambouillet around 50 kilometers southwest of Paris. Parts of the complex were built in the 11th century as a Cistercian abbey, but now, it is one of the world’s most beautiful hotels.
We are delighted to share, with an authentic simplicity, this passion that keeps us together. La Maison Bugatti Paris has the purpose to create special experiences, that bring people to live the French Art de vivre. The Chiron Sport and Pur Sport are extraordinary vehicles, with superlative performances, a real dream that links together all the automotive passions. Since its creation in 1947, the family Group has developed a representative network of roughly twenty automotive brands throughout France and has carried on the historical tradition and presence of sports cars brands in Paris metropolitan region. – Edouard Schumacher, CEO of Groupe Schumacher and LS Group
The test drives in Paris kicked off a Bugatti Road Show for the Chiron Sport and Pur Sport in Europe.
For myself personally, it’s a particular pleasure to be part of this Bugatti Paris event and showcase the Chiron Sport and Chiron Pur Sport to our customers. After long abstinence and merely digital presentations, aficionados of our brand finally have the chance here to test and experience the two hyper sports cars. Customers need to be able to see, drive and feel Bugatti vehicles so they can internalize their unique and special character. – Guy Caquelin, Regional Director Europe at Bugatti
