The Bugatti Veyron has had quite the run since it debuted in 2005 with the 1,001 PS 16.4 model. Now here we are, 10 years later, and the final example of the world’s fastest production supercar is set to find its way into a collector’s garage. In true Bugatti fashion, it couldn’t just let this Veyron ride off into the sunset. Instead, it turned the last unit into a one-off special edition dubbed the Grand Sport “La Finale.”
While selling 450 units – 300 coupes and 150 roadsters – in a single decade may not seem like a massive feat, you need to keep in mind that the Veyron was no ordinary supercar. With an average price tag of €2.3 million, the Veyron relied on the mega-wealthy few of the world to decide to lump down such a hefty sum on a car that clearly put function ahead of form with its rolling-jellybean appearance.
About the “La Finale” model, the details remain very scarce, but we do know that it was purchased by a Middle Eastern buyer. We also know that it is a 1,200 PS 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse model that features “La Finale” on its rear wing and a reddish hue. Other that those few details. The rest remains a complete mystery.
Fortunately, we won’t have to wait long to find out what chassis No. 450 has to offer, as Bugatti will display it at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show alongside Chassis No. 1. The Geneva Show kicks off for us media folk on March 3rd, while the public has to wait until March 5th.
Stay tuned for more details.
