Although I've covered some Bugatti Chiron models before here on Autotrader Find, this is (in my opinion) the best one yet -- largely because it's finished in the car's classic colors, boasting the black-and-blue exterior Bugatti used to show the vehicle before its official launch. Unfortunately, as desirable as the colors might make it seem, there's a problem: This Chiron is currently offered for $4 million.

Admittedly, that's not really a problem if you're in the market for a Chiron, as that's about what they're going for. But it's a problem if, say, you don't have $4 million to spend on an automobile and instead your budget is closer to roughly 10 percent of that. Then you'll never be able to experience 1,500 horsepower and a top speed of 261 miles per hour.

One unusual thing about the listing for this particular Chiron is that it's offered in West Hollywood, California, by a private seller. I'm normally skeptical of private-seller supercar offerings, largely because there are the occasional scams, and because photographs can be gathered from anywhere for some attention-seeking person to make it look like they have an expensive car. But the listing for this Chiron shows 18 photos, all taken in the same place, and it provides a VIN for additional legitimacy.

Speaking of the VIN, the Carfax report is unusual, showing only one event: a sale listing from O'Gara Coach, the Bugatti dealership in Beverly Hills, from October. It appears the current owner bought the Chiron and never drove it -- perhaps instead intending to flip it for a profit, as the current MSRP is somewhere below $3 million.

But regardless of the exact circumstances, here's your chance to buy one of the ultimate cars ever made.
