The Bugatti Veyron is officially out of production.Bugatti has sold the last-ever example of its Veyron supercar. Bugatti will display the last Veyron, No. 450 in the car's production run, at next month's Geneva Motor Show.Launched a decade ago, Bugatti has finally reached its planned 450 unit production run of the Veyron supercar. The final Veyron, known as the Grand Sport Vitesse "La Finale," has been sold to a collector in the Middle East.
"In the Veyron, Bugatti has created an automobile icon and established itself as the world's most exclusive supercar brand," says Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. "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."
As the perfect bookend, chassis No. 450 will be displayed next to chassis No. 1 at the Geneva show.
Launched as a 1,000 horsepower coupe in 2005, Bugatti went on to introduce open-top and even higher-performance versions of the Veyron over the last decade. The Veyron was capable of accelerating from 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and hitting a top speed in excess of 248mph.
Although 2015 marks the end of the line for the Veyron, it won't be Bugatti's last crack at a super high-end sports car. The company is currently working on a Bugatti successor that will likely be called the Chiron.
