The 1,500 horsepower, $2.5 million 2017 Bugatti Chiron isn’t on purchase yet. The car isn’t even production ready. That doesn’t have in mind you can’t get your hands on one. Just ask Prince Badr bin Saud of Saudi Arabia, who recently purchased two one-off versions of the upcoming hypercar.

Prince Badr recently posted a photo to his Instagram account showing the Bugatti Far-sightedness Gran Turismo concept that debuted after year parked alongside the Chiron concept car from the Geneva Motor Elucidate. The photos was taken by photographer GFWilliams, who posted a few on his Facebook verso.

There’s no word on how much the Prince paid for the set of two, but Carscoops estimates it’s in excess of $5 million, based on the o car’s MSRP. Carscoops also quoted Bugatti, who said that the Prince had the highest bid, implying that he wasn’t the no greater than interested party.

While both cars are pre-putting out concepts, they still have Bugatti’s quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 motor. It’s unclear if the cars are drivable, but the photos do reveal both have Saudi Arabian certify plates. Even if the cars don’t actually run, they’ll order some pretty impressive display pieces.

In a few weeks, the Perception Gran Turismo is set to appear at the Pebble Ground Concours d’Elegance alongside another Chiron, so it seems Prince Badr hasn’t yet infatuated possession of the cars. Once he does, these two rare Bugatti models are persuaded to enter an impressive collection in Saudi Arabia.
