The Bugatti Veyron has officially been sold out.
Ten years after the first Bugatti Veyron 16.4 burst onto the automotive stage, the French maker of super cars has announced that it has sold the very last Veyron, a circumstance that is sure to send prices of secondhand Veyrons skyrocketing. The price has not been revealed but, according to one Bugatti dealer, Veyrons are sold at an average price of $2.6 million. By our calculations, Bugatti customers have spent approximately $1,125,000,000 or $1.1-billion, on the 450 Veyrons ever produced.
In typical Bugatti fashion the very last Veyron, a Grand Sport Vitesse “La Finale”, isn’t a run-of-the-mill Veyron, if that’s not a contradiction in terms. This very vehicle was on display at the Geneva Motor show until being sent to its buyer, reportedly from the Middle East.
And while the Veyron has officially reached the end of its lifecycle, Bugatti is already hard at work on a replacement model, with the Volkswagen Group-owned firm currently testing a variety of possible powertrains. Rumors suggest that the Veyron replacement will be called Chiron and will feature an engine with up to 25 percent more power than that of the Veyron’s. Whatever its output, you can be sure that Bugatti will aim to dethrone the new breed of hypercars like the Pagani Huayra and Koenigsegg One:1, and we can’t wait to see it.
