For any Bugatti lover, this is the most teary-eyed moment of their lives.
The fastest production car in the world, the Veyron is now bidding adieu to us. Citing production costs and dwindling profits, Bugatti had earlier announced wrapping up its production with the 450th and final Veyron that has been showcased at the Geneva Motor Show.
Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S said, “The Veyron is a showcase for technology, design and art – in keeping with the Bugatti brand’s values of ’Art, Forme, Technique’.”
Bugatti Veyron History
- A similar Bugatti Veyron 16.4 ‘Grand Sport Vitesse’ driven Chinese racing driver Anthony Liu became the fastest open-top production sports car in the world, clocking in a top-speed of 408.84 km/h (254.04 mph) at the Volkswagen Group’s proving grounds in Ehra-Lessien.
- Volkswagen is the owner of the ‘Bugatti’ brand name.
- This car is entirely built by hand and costs $2.7M for the ‘Supersport’ version and roofless ‘Grand Sport’ costs about $3.5M making it the most expensive production car in the world.
New Car Details
- The final version is named as the ‘Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale’. It has 1,200 horsepower under its hood.
- The car derives its monstrous raw power from an 8-litre, W16 engine. It produces an unparalleled level of maximum torque of about 1,500 Nm.
- It can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 2.6 seconds with a top-speed of 410 km/h.
- The exteriors are similar to any Veyron model with a red and black carbon-fibrepaintjob and dark-red wheels.
- The front wing panels, side intakes and doors are all made of black carbon-fibre. The rest of the body is made of a deep-red carbon-fibre, which no previous Veyron ever sported.
- The interiors have a breath taking cream and scarlet leather finish with a special commemorative La Finale badge.
- The luxury supercar will be soon delivered to a Middle-Eastern customer.
The Veyron successor, rumored to be called the Chiron will get two electric-charged turbochargers that would power the 8 liter W16 power plant propelling the car. The engine’s output should be around 1500HP which would make its top speed to around 460+ km/h!
It isn’t easy for a Bugatti lover to bid adieu to this supercar that touched the 1200 bhp mark. For a car that empties its 100 liter fuel tank in just 15 minutes when driven at its top speed, this car is the epitome of luxury. No other car has 16 cylinders, your car has a maximum of 4!
Farewell to the car that helped supercar drivers dream bigger!
