The 300-unit Bugatti Veyron production is going to end very soon as approximately 50 cars are still waiting for a buyer to take them home, according to Bugatti's spokesman. This means that 250 models were already distributed to the whole word, despite the fact that recent speculations show that production of this popular model may be stopped sooner than we expect. For instance, GlobalMotors said that a special edition blue Veyron had chassis number 297, which means that approximately 3 models are still available in the whole series.

However, there's still one major question related to this sad news. As you probably know, Bugatti also rolled out several different Veyrons, including Sang Noir, Grand Sports and Pur Sang. Well, nobody knows for sure if all these models are included in the 300-unit limited production. In case they are, production may end very soon and the 297th chassis may be real.

What's interesting is that Bugatti will also produce 150 Grand Sports starting March this year so the whole equation is far more complex than we first thought.

Bugatti Veyron was officially presented to the general public in 2005 as the fastest production car in the world, being capable of reaching a maximum speed of 408.47 km/h (253.8 mph).

“For years, the Bugatti engineers had worked diligently in order to push the 400 km/h boundary. No wind tunnel can simulate this velocity, which is why after each of a long series of improvements, the different ground clearance levels and the modifications of the rear fenders, spoiler and underbody were tested separately on high-speed test ranges. This ambition and diligence paid off, as the official speed measurement proves,” Bugatti said in 2005 when the company rolled out the Veyron.

So, until Bugatti releases an official statement regarding the Veyron production, keep your eyes pilled on autoevolution and we promise to bring you the news as soon as they happen.
