It’s the end of an era for the Bugatti Veyron. The German-owned, French automaker will show off the very last example of the Bugatti Veyron, which originally hit the scene in 2005 as the Veyron 16.4.
Quickly becoming the new de-facto poster child for the word “fast”, the Veyron has left a mark on the auto industry as a speed demon, a status symbol and a record-breaker. But all good things must come to an end, as Bugatti sells the very last units of the Veyron. And that’s ok, since there will be a successor will more than live up to the Bugatti name called the Chiron.
As part of a lengthy interview with Auto, Motor und Sport focusing on future Bentley products, Bentley and Bugatti chief Wolfgang Dürheimer said the 450th Bugatti Veyron will be present at next month’s Geneva Motor Show. The 450 units of the Veyron was comprised of 300 coupes and 150 open-top models.
Our best guess is that the final Bugatti Veyron will more than likely be of the Grand Sport Vitesse nature, boasting 1,183 horsepower from its massive quad-turbocharged W16 engine. Whoever gets their hands on the final production Veyron will certainly have a collector piece on their hands, despite the supercar’s already-stratospheric price.
No matter what you think of the Bugatti Veyron, there’s no denying that it has become a modern-day supercar icon, running with the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren. But not to worry, as the Veyron’s successor — the Chiron — will more than likely be more than enough for any driver to handle when it makes its debut sometime within the next two years.
Stay tuned to Motrolix as we bring you information and images of the very last Veyron from the 2015 Geneva Auto Show.
