► 450 models of going hyper-fast
► Middle East buyer for final Vitesse
Bugatti has confirmed it has sold the final Veyron. A total of 450 Bugs were manufactured in Alsace, France – 300 coupes and latterly 150 roadsters.
Chassis number 450 was a Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale and went to an unnamed Middle East customer, Bugatti has confirmed.
The last Veyron will be shown at the 2015 Geneva motor show in March, alongside #001.
Bugatti Veyron: a life in numbers
The Veyron has been in continuous production for 10 years, and never ceased to amaze with its extraordinary roster of numbers. It’s worth reflecting on the dizzying digits once more:
Veyron 16.4 16 cylinders, 987bhp
Veyron 16.4 Super Sport 1184hp
The Supersport produced a fulsome 1106lb ft, explaining why it hit 62mph in just 2.5 seconds and set a world record top speed of 268mph.
‘In the Veyron, Bugatti has created an automobile icon and established itself as the world’s most exclusive supercar brand,’ said Wolfgang Duerheimer, president of Bugatti Automobiles.
‘So far no other carmaker has managed to successfully market a product that stands for unique top-class technical performance and pure luxury in a comparable price/volume range. An unprecedented chapter in automobile history has reached its climax.’
Life after Veyron
Needless, to say Volkswagen is busy developing a successor to the Veyron.
Well, they would, wouldn’t they? The average transaction price of each Veyron sold was €2.3 million, after all…
