Most people might associate Bumblebee with the Camaro, thanks to the Transformers movie franchise, but the Bumblebee from the original was a Volkswagen Beetle. What if the Autobot decided to ditch American and return to its German origins, but in a much more potent form. Maybe, it will look like this Bugatti Chiron decked out in yellow and black. A YouTube channel that goes by the name ‘Supercars on the streets’ has uploaded a video of this rare Chiron grabbing everyone’s attention in Monaco. You know the hypercar is truly special when it turns heads at Monaco, especially when it is accompanied by several other Chirons and Veyrons. The video is from September 2019 – a time when coronavirus was an unheard term and facemasks were restricted to just operation theaters.
The Chiron in the video is owned by American businessman Hezy Shaked and the hypercar’s Californian license plate will tell you that it is named ‘Hellbee.’ In fact, it was the first Chiron to be delivered to a customer in the US. Just about everything on the Hellbee is finished in yellow and black, except for the aluminum trim parts in the cabin. Hezy Shaked is a known Bugatti fan. Not only does he own the Hellbee, but also previously owned a Bugatti Veyron Vitesse L’Or Rouge and the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo – a concept car by the French hypercar manufacturer. His crazy car collection also includes a Lamborghini Centenario Roadster – interestingly, also featuring the same yellow and black paint scheme. As far as the Hellbee goes, the hood a unique wrap job, and everything else is completely stock. The $3 million hypercar is powered by a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 that pumps out 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque. It can do the 0-62mph sprint in just 2.3 seconds and the top speed is limited to 261mph.
