Bidding adieu to the Bugatti Veyron
It has been 10 years since the Bugatti Veyron entered our lives, and after making 450 of these masterpieces, the company has ended the production. Bugatti Veyron made its way into the automotive space way before it began production. The car was the brainchild of Bugatti, and was under development since 1996, when VW bought over the company.
The final design was agreed upon in 2001, four years before the car hit production. Its claim to fame was that it was the fastest production road car, and only 300 of them would ever be made. The company finished selling its 300th car in 2011, and due to insane demand, commissioned 150 more roadsters for production.
The Bugatti Veyron is an epitome of luxury and technology, and has a disgustingly huge price tag (2.6 million $, you’d have to be super rich to buy one of these). The legendary car comes with 4 turbocharges, and 1000bhp from the factory. Obviously after market treatment could drastically change those numbers, but you’d have to be very brave (and rich to try doing that).
The final roadster, called the Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale, was sold to an individual in the middle-east (where’d you find most of the expensive cars in the world). The final car will be displayed at the upcoming Geneva show, before making its way to the owner’s garage, or personal racetrack (you never know).
The car has its unique stamp, with LA Finale painted on the double spoiler. Bugatti is not the only one which will be stopping productions of its classics, even Pagani ended up selling all the Huayra’s it intended to build.
These cars are collectors items, and look as fancy as they drive. They are expensive to own and maintain, and you’d have to have more than a lot of money to buy these cars. You’d need passion, and there’s not enough money in the world that can give you that.
Here’s bidding adieu to a masterpiece, which even though might not make it to our garages, made a huge impact on our hearts (and desktops wallpapers, and room posters).
