The Bugatti Veyron supercar has had a long and phenomenally successful run…aside from the financials. Now just 8 Veyrons remain available to order from the 450 unit production run that began way back in 2005. The brand was initially going to build just 300, but bumped that number up to 450 to make way for the convertible Bugatti Veyron Grand Sports and such.
All of the 8 Bugatti Veyrons left to order are coupes. Every single convertible Bugatti Veyron that will ever be built has already been sold. Many are hoping the final few Veyrons sell rather quickly, so that the Bugatti factory in Molsheim, France will be freed up to finally create the Veyron’s mysterious successor. Rumors have been circulating for quite some time about the Bugatti Veyron successor, with many settling their bets on a superhybrid with even more power. Because so many angles have been tossed around and nixed, it will be a surprise indeed when it eventually emerges in concept form.
Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer revealed the news of how few units remain in recent interviews about the forward direction of the company.
Veyron sales for the first 442 spanned over a decade at an average rate of roughly one per week, indicating that it could take a few more months to unload the last of the nice ladies. Does anyone else imagine they will suddenly become ‘Special Editions’ should orders not roll in? “The final fleet” edition or something similar.
To end on a positive note, it seems that Bugatti may be up for future challenges after all, as Dürheimer recently stated that they will continue to build the “Most luxurious, fastest cars in the world” and that there is a “Crazy American” out to claim a record. Was he referring to John Hennessey or Jerod Shelby of SSC? I, for one, cannot wait to find out, though they are going to need more horses to play with Hennessey Performance in the future.
