Black and Purple Bugatti Chiron Is the Car Of a Sheikh's Wife

Nowadays, even superminis come with plenty of customizable interior and exterior bits, but it's not like anybody will confuse such a four-wheeled urban dweller for a Bugatti Chiron. Speaking of the Molsheim machine, we're here to show you a configuration that stands out for at least two reasons.

The first reason is obvious - one simply needs to glance at this 1,500 horsepower monster for the color scheme of the thing to work its charms. Those purple bits that adorn the black vehicle have also found their way inside the car, where their impact seems to be even greater.

For one thing, the purple piece that can be found inside the toy cover larger areas that those found on the exterior, while the color itself isn't a common one, even in the world of go-fast vehicles.

Then there's the owner of the hypercar. We're talking about Shaykhah Mariam Bint Nasser Al-Ahmad Al-Thani, the wife of Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al-Thani. And now her Instagram account (check it out below) suddenly makes sense.

The Qatar royal family has a history with motor vehicles, from customized hypercars like the one we have here to the motorsport ambitions of the said Sheikh. We'll remind you he owns the Al Anabi Racing team and was the first of his country to drive a Formula One car back in 2015 (the toy in question was the Williams FW31).

Then again, this quad-turbo, W16 Bug isn't the fastest four-wheeled machine the Shaykhah has been inside of. For instance, she's "visited" multiple racecars and we've brought along an example in the form of the second Instagram post below.

Oh and we must also mention that this probably isn't the first Bugatti Chiron in the family, since an example dressed in black and red is a common presence in her photos.
