Bugatti Have A Very Different Method Of Recalling Their Cars!
When a manufacturer recalls one of their models, the process is normally very simple. Owners will receive a letter in the post, instructing them to go to their local dealer to get the problem sorted. With a model worth over £2 million, Bugatti have chosen to be a little different.
The Bugatti Chiron is powered by an 8.0L quad-turbo charged W16 engine, producing 1,479BHP, a 0-60MPH time of 2.4 seconds and a top speed limited to 261MPH.
The company announced a recall of 47 Chiron models last week, stating that 1% of the models possibly had bad welds in the seat recliner brackets. This 1% represents less than half of one Chiron model! Not only will Bugatti customers receive a letter, but will also be contacted by Bugatti's "Flying Doctors", via phone and email to arrange an appointment to have their vehicle inspected.
The Flying Doctors will then retrieve the model from it's owner, before transporting the Chiron in an enclosed truck to the nearest Bugatti dealer. If the vehicle is found with an improper weld, the entire seating assembly will be replaced.
