According to reports, the first few units of the Bugatti Chiron are about to hit the streets, but before their much-anticipated reveal happens, the French auto-manufacturing company has allowed soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to get behind the wheel first hand. As Bugatti explained it, the automaker wanted to give "a real champion" the chance to be able to drive first and approve of the1,500-horsepower luxury cruise car before it officially hits the road.
The New Bugatti Chiron
Bugatti even confidently said that even in a garage full of Ferraris, Porsches, Lamborghinis, and a Rolls-Royce, the Chiron will still stand out from the crowd. In a video made by the company, it features a brief look at Ronaldo's impressive collection of cars just before people hear the low rumble of 16-turbocharged cylinders rolls in with test driver Andy Wallace behind the wheel.
According to Autoblog, Wallace is known for winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but he is probably most famous for setting the McLaren F1's top speed record in 1998. Only a few drivers in the world are more than qualified to drive what is believed to be the fastest car ever built to date.
Amazing Bugatti Chiron Commercial Ft. Cristiano Ronaldo
According to a report, right after Ronaldo steps inside, the video then cuts to some clips of the Portuguese player blasting the amazing car around the track. With all this, people are still not sure whether it's really Ronaldo behind the wheel, but several analysts do claim that it is fun to see the Chiron finally seen in action after years of waiting on what it will truly become.
In the end of the video, Wallace then tells Ronaldo that he must make a phone call to Bugatti if whether he wants to keep it. Ronaldo was then seen apologizing to his other cars and picks up his phone.
