Tucked away in a large, nondescript building, along a quiet stretch in the not-as-gritty-as-it-used-to-be Manhattan neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, sits an absolute artistic masterpiece. It’s kept under wraps and must be unveiled, like a Michelangelo at Sotheby’s—only this statue is constructed out of carbon fiber and has recently broken the unholy speed of 300 miles per hour. Manhattan Motorcars is the temporary home of a $4 million Bugatti Chiron Sport, the 110th-anniversary version festooned with French flags in the side mirrors, spoiler, and cockpit seats in honor of the manufacturer’s Gallic heritage. It’s one of only two of the vehicles delivered to the United States and will soon be picked up and presumably driven into New York City traffic by a new owner destined to be the envy of the automobile-loving world.
“The Chiron is a hell of a machine, incredible craftsmanship. I’m glad we had it on our floor,” says Brian Miller, owner of Manhattan Motorcars—the 150,000-square-foot high-end go-to dealership for movie stars, captains of industry, or anyone else who has the means to plunk down $411,285 for a Bentley Mulsanne.
