NEWS AND NOTES
For the first time in three months, I stayed home on Saturday. I enjoyed the day with my Grandson and watched a little football. Sunday, however, was a different story.
The first stop on Sunday was Esoteric Fine Auto Finishing in New Albany, Ohio for the unveiling of the Triple F Collection's newest hypercar, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport.
The unveiling took place from 11 AM to 2 PM. I arrived shortly before 1 PM and the crowd was quite manageable. No idea how crazy it was or wasn't at 11 AM.
Here are a few of the Super Sport's specs:
- 8.0-liter 16-cylinder hand-crafted engine
- 4 turbochargers
- 18 PSI maximum turbo boost
- 7100 rpm redline
- 1,600 horsepower
- A maximum speed of up to 273 mph
- Pricing starts at $4 million
Bugatti plans to build only 60 Super Sports so you might want to order yours now!
The Triple F Collection had a few of its other cars on display. All told I estimated there was about $20 million worth of cars at Esoteric.
Lancaster Car Scene Car-Toberfest
From Esoteric it was off to Outerbelt Brewing in Caroll, Ohio for the Lancaster Car Scene Car-toberfest Car Show.
The event was spread out over the parking lots of Outerbelt Brewing and the Tractor Supply Company (TSC).
Registration was $15 which included a door prize ticket. There was also a 50/50 raffle. Those that parked in the Outerbelt Brewing lot could get food and a craft beer inside the taproom. A food truck was available for those that parked at TSC and didn't want to make the walk to the taproom.
The show registered 142 vehicles with another 30-40 attending that didn't register.
Trophies were presented to the Top 50 cars, trucks, and bikes along with seven "Best Of" category awards and a Best of Show.
The Best of Show honors went to Bob Kraft with a 1955 Chevy 210.
