Meet Sven Bohnhorst, the luckiest man in the world. Why, you ask? Because he gets paid to drive Bugattis around racetracks. Afterwards, he makes changes to the Bugatti and drives it again to see whether he likes it or not. Bohnhorst is a chassis setup engineer at Bugatti, and he does things like tune the steering on cars like the upcoming Chiron Pur Sport. The car that Bugatti limited sales to 60 at a price of 3,000,000 euros, which is about $3,400,000, is his development mule.
Intrigued and curious how Bohnhorst managed to get this position, we asked him how he got the job, what makes the Pur Sport stand out from the standard Chiron and much more.
