If Santa is planning to surprise someone with a Bugatti Veyron this year, he had certainly better hurry! Just 50 Bugatti Veyron examples remain, and no more will be created (so they say). Clever marketing ploy, or saddest news ever?
Bugatti is in its final lap with the Veyron series. Where will the last 50 units end up?
The Veyron that we know today lit up the supercar scene when production began in 2005. The brand announced that there would be a run of 300 coupes and 150 roadsters, and all but 50 of the roadsters are officially sold. Yes, it takes that long to sell hundreds of million-plus dollar hypercars.
Bugatti sells 400th Veyron, which means only 50 roadsters remain. We have seen them in nearly every color combination under the sun, the final 50 shall be bittersweet.
The special 400th Bugatti Veyron created was the Jean-Pierre Wimille edition. There have been seemingly countless ‘special edition Veyrons’ over the years, and I have loved and accepted each and every one of them tirelessly. The Bugatti Legend Series is the latest example, a series of six special editions that are being revealed in true strip-tease fashion. So far, only three of the six Legend cars have been unveiled: The Jean-Pierre Wimille, the Jean Bugatti and the Meo Costantini. Follow links for further details on each of those cars.
Fun fact: It took around 8 years to produce 400 Bugatti Veyron supercars.
Who can forget the lavish one-off Veyron L’or Blanc?
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse emerged in 2012 and is the current fastest production roadster in the world with a top speed of 254.04 blistering miles per hour. The fastest coupe would be the Veyron Super Sport, of course. The Veyron will be a tough act to follow, I hope they have planned for that. By the time the final 50 Bugatti Veyrons are made and given homes, they will no doubt be taunting us with a successor.
