Bugatti has finally sold the 450th and last Veyron model, which is a personalized Grand Sport Vitesse roadster called “La Finale” (French for the last one). The car with chassis number 450 has been bought by a customer from the Middle East and will be on display at the Geneva Motor Show alongside the first Veyron built, chassis number 1.
“In the Veyron, Bugatti has created an automobile icon and established itself as the world’s most exclusive supercar brand,” said 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,” the executive added.
Needless to say, the final Veyron will represent a collector’s item of particular value. The Grand Sport Vitesse “La Finale” is powered by 16-cylinder 8-liter engine producing 1,200PS (1,184hp) and a maximum torque of 1,500 Nm (1,106lb-ft). The car is able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.5 seconds, with a similar model setting a world record speed of 408.84 km/h (254 mph) in 2013.
Since Bugatti started making the Veyron 10 years ago, it built 300 coupes and 150 roadsters. The 1,001PS Veyron 16.4 debuted in 2005, with the open-top version, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, following in 2008. In 2010, the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport with 1,200PS was launched and was then joined by the roadster version, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, in 2012.
We’re looking forward to a replacement now.
