It really does feel like Andrew Tate could be one of the biggest personalities on YouTube right now. It’s impossible to be on the video platform without seeing his macho clips, and even Logan Paul is acknowledging his fame… by constantly talking about fighting him. So that got us thinking about what kind of car he drives, and it’s not very difficult to find out, since there are so many clips about Bugatti this and Chiron that.
The Bugatti Chiron is a world-famous hypercar, one of the most expensive and fastest vehicles you can buy. You see it all the time on social media and even as a toy, but actually buying a Chiron is a different matter.
To start off, the Chiron is very expensive. It costs from around $3 million, which is significantly more than most Lamborghinis and Ferraris. Even compared to its predecessor, the Veyron, it’s almost three times the price.
The engine partly justifies this, a 16-cylinder marvel of modern engineering with enough power to push the Veyron to 300 mph. Basically, it makes you one of the fastest people on the planet, but it also stands out through its exclusivity.
From 2016 until 2022, Bugatti built just 500 examples of the mid-engined car. That’s it; they’re not going to make any more. By comparison, many Lamborghinis or Ferraris are produced in the thousands.
But Andrew Tate doesn’t have the normal Chiron. He has the Chiron Pur Sport. Revealed in 2020, this model is a handling-oriented version with production limited to just 60 units, and it reportedly costs $3.6 million. The color may look golden but was described by Bugatti themselves as “Copper Carbon” and is produced through the Atelier program.
I don’t think Andrew picked the Pur Sport on purpose. It was probably just the one he could find at the time or the amazing spec just caught his attention. The model comes with numerous updates, including a revised gearbox with closer ratios, the famous 3D-printed titanium exhaust, and a fixed rear spoiler which contribute to a 50 kg/110 lbs weight reduction.
Casinos in Romania?
To improve handling, the Pur Sport has 65% stiffer springs at the front and 33% at the rear, along with additional front and rear carbon fiber anti-roll bars. Despite this, Andrew Tate drives the car in Romania, which doesn’t have the smoothest roads in the world.
In fact, Romania is one of his main talking points, from the fact that the women aren’t overweight to the local policemen who are apparently cheap to bribe. His words, not mine. It’s also where Tate apparently makes a lot of his money in the casino business. According to one of his recent videos, the businesses he owns together with his brother Tristan are worth about $300 million.
Even though they make so much money, it’s not quite clear if Andrew actually bought the car since it’s still sitting on those Dubai license plates, which it probably has from one of those luxury import dealerships in the Middle East.
And another one?
The story is that Tate walked into a Bugatti store in Munich and was turned away. He then emailed somebody with links to his social media accounts, explaining that the Chiron is far better off in the hands of big influences than some sheik who’s going to put it in storage. At least this way, the car is going to be on the streets, and that’s apparently good for the brand.
Word on the street is that Andrew is interested in buying a second Bugatti and he checked out a blue carbon Divo. That ones is about twice as expensive, in case you’re wondering, and you’ll find footage of that at the bottom of this story.
