The 450th Bugatti Veyron found himself a rich owner after a customer from the Middle East - no surprise here - secured a personalized Grand Vitesse Roadster named La Finale (that's French for the final, by the way). The last Bugatti ever built will be presented side by side with the first Veyron, chassis number 1, in a week's time in Geneva.

The Veyron supercar was produced by Bugatti in 450 units - 300 coupes and 150 roadsters. but this particular model is everything an automotive enthusiast could ever dream of. The classy beast is powered by the soon-to-become-legendary 16-cylinder 8-liter quad-turbo engine which has no inhibition in delivering 1,200 HP and a maximum torque of 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft).

Leaving these figures aside, the "La Finale" Grand Sport Vitesse can shoot from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.5 seconds and after reading this, we're willing to bet that your mind just flashbacked about the 2013 world speed record controversy against the Hennessey Venom GT, which was eventually resolved in the Veyron's favor.

Bugatti Veyron was always a source of controversy, but nonetheless a source of awesomeness. It was named Car of the Decade and received the best car award (2000-2009) by TopGear, but in never stopped impressing. The current Super Sport version is the fastest street-legal production car in the world, while the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse version is the fastest roadster in the world.

It would be a shame not to mention the brilliant design minds behind the Veyron's design. The Veyron's chef designer was Harmut Warkuss, while the exterior was imagined and designed by Jozef Kaban, who also put his signature on the recently-revealed 2015 Skoda Superb.
