First let’s look at : Tesla

Tesla is an American automotive and energy company that specializes in electric cars. In fact, Tesla is a global leader is all-electric cars with a mission to race the world’s transition to sustainable energy. Tesla produces cars that run on battery instead of the not-so-environment-friendly gasoline. It’s the company’s commitment to make electric cars fast and affordable, and their unique business model, which make Tesla a strong contender in the electric vehicles (EV) race. Tesla, originally Tesla Motors, was founded in 2003 by two engineers – Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning – who had a passion for electric cars.

Elon Musk joined in later as the Chairman of the Board of Directors in 2004, after investing $6.3 million in stocks during a ‘Series A’ round of investment. The name ‘Tesla’ comes from Nikola Tesla, which was obvious considering he was one of the major pioneers in electricity and the inventor of the first alternating current (AC) motor. In 2008, Tesla launched the Roadster based on their cutting-edge battery system and electric powertrain. It achieved a run of 245 miles on a single charge, which was no less than an achievement for a production electric car.

So how about Bugatti

Bugatti is a French manufacturer of fast, high-performance cars founded by the Italian-born industrial designer Ettore Bugatti. Errore was recognized as one of the most brilliant designers to ever work in the automotive field. From racing machines to sports cars to limousines, Ettore produced a greater range of models than any other single designer has ever done. Bugatti is already known for their exceptionally fast cars. One model of their racing car won over a thousand races in two years.

Bugatti boasts a rich heritage that dates back to the early 1900s. The Bugatti Type 2 was the first four-wheeled prototype built by Ettore Bugatti in 1900 and it was unveiled in 1901. The Bugatti Type 35 was one of the most successful racing cars of all time, which won over 2,000 races between 1924 and 1930. The Type 35 was one the icons of Bugatti’s rich history and one of the forefathers of the current hyper sports car line-up – the Chiron, Chiron Sport, and Divo. The next evolution of the Chiron is the 2021’s Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport which costs a whopping $3.6 million.
