Not that a lot of you are going to be in the market for a two-seater priced in the general vicinity of $2 million, but the Bugatti Veyron has reached the end of the line:
[T]he luxury brand, owned by Volkswagen, announced it has sold its 400th Veyron — and it will sell only 50 more.
Of the 400 purchased so far, 300 were the Veyron 16.4 or 16.4 Super Sport, both coupes. The Super Sport is the fastest production car ever made.
Bugatti won’t make any more of either car, so new owners will have to settle for the roadster Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport and 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.
“Settle for.” Yeah, right.
Then again, the Veyron went into production in 2005, so it’s taken eight years to sell 400 — which means the clearance sale will probably last a year.
That price is approximate: it’s invariably quoted in euros, and it does not include Federal gas-guzzler tax. (Miles per gallon: city, 8; highway, 14; high-speed runs, somewhere around 2. That last estimate is not even slightly recognized by the EPA.)
And now that I think of it, didn’t they originally plan on 300 of these?
