First and Last Bugatti Veyron Built Share the Stage in Geneva

The Geneva Motor Show marks the end of a glorious era for the Bugatti brand, which has produced the 450th and last Veyron model.

Called “La Finale,” the highly-customized Grand Sport Vitesse model is on display in Geneva alongside the first-ever Veyron built, which left the factory in 2005. The fact that these two cars are showcased side by side shows how little the Veyron has changed during 10 years of production, during which 300 coupes and 150 roadsters were built.

The Veyron “La Finale” pays tribute to chassis no. 1, from which it sources the black and red color scheme. The devil is in the details though, as the 450th Veyron built combines black and red exposed carbon fiber, the latter used for the first time on a vehicle, according to Bugatti. The car also sports a series of custom features including “La Finale” lettering under the right front headlight and on the underside of the rear wing, or the the Bugatti elephant featured on the hubcaps and in the cabin.

The Grand Sport Vitesse “La Finale” is powered by the 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.

The 1,001PS Bugatti Veyron 16.4 debuted in 2005, followed in 2008 by the open-top version, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport. In 2010, the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport with 1,200PS was launched and was joined two years later by the roadster version, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.
