Last Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Sold to European Customer

Rumors of the 16C Galibier going into production are intensifying and it was only a matter of time before we said our goodbyes to the car that jump-started the Bugatti brand. Unfortunately, the new model will be a hyper-luxury four-door saloon, and it will not be as fast or as powerful as the car that made the 1,000 hp road car believable.

According to a recent Bugatti statement, the last Veyron 16.4 has been sold to a customer in Europe who will take delivery of his hipercar next fall. This means that millionaires and rappers with more money than common sense will have to find some other place to spend their $1.7 on a single car. Might we suggest the slightly cheaper but equally as exciting new Pagani?

Bugatti only ever built 300 examples over the seven years that the Veyron has been in production, and you can bet the news of last the one being sold will push aftermarket prices to the limit. This will be especially true for the limited edition models, like the Veyron Pur Sang, Hermes and Super Sport.

Fortunately, VW Group will still sell the Grand Sport open-top version, a performance luxury machine with a top speed of 407 km/h with the top down. With the roof removed, it has a maximum speed of 360 km/h, which makes the Grand Sport the fastest convertible in the world.

"In the Veyron the Bugatti team has created a vehicle that has already become an icon of automotive history. Both technologically and in terms of design, the Veyron is still far ahead of its time. The Grand Sport is a further pinnacle of achievement in the open-top sports car segment, and we intend to maintain the same standard in our future Bugatti products," said Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles.
