After a decade of production, scores of bespoke creations, a nearly unrivaled spot at the top of the supercar world and a few variants, the Bugatti Veyron’s run has, at last, come to an end.
The 450th Veyron ever produced, which has been sold to a private customer in the Middle East, will make its public debut at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show as a press release from the French manufacturer announced today. Dubbed “La Finale,” from March 3-15 it will be displayed alongside the first Veyron to roll off of the production line.

A modern interpretation of Bugatti’s founding brand values “Art, Forme, Technique,” the Veyron has an immediately recognizable exterior design housing its undeniably powerful engine. Of the 450 Veyrons produced, the 300 coupes were either the Veyron 16.4, which created 987 hp, or the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport with 1,183 hp. 150 Veyrons were roadsters bearing the name Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport or Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.
As the release explains, “The Bugatti developers were given four goals in the specifications for the supercar: it should transfer more than 1,000 PS onto the road, drive faster than 400 km/h, accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than three seconds and – the biggest challenge – in this configuration still be suitable for driving ‘to the opera’ in comfort and style.”
Without a doubt, they succeeded beyond everyone’s expectations.
