The last Bugatti Veyron Super Sport will be auctioned next month with an estimated starting price of £2 million. Although RM Sotheby hasn’t given the auction price as of now, a Super Sport would’ve cost at least £1.2 million in 2013. A brand new Veyron would’ve cost over 1.7 million today.
Since there were only 300 coupes made under Bugatti’s “Super Sport 300”, each model is considered a rare find. The last one, which will be sold at the auction would’ve had the number “300” stamped on its chassis. The Super Sport being sold is still under the possession of its first owner. There were a total of 8 US-specified models sold when it was initially released. The last Bugatti Veyron Super Sport was also showcased at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show together with the first ever Bugatti Veyron.
Ever since the owner bought it, the Super Sport has run about less than 400 miles. Out of this, around 269 miles were accumulated during test runs before delivery. The original owner has also brought it to Beverly Hills and Miami for regular maintenance.
Boasting a top speed of 257 mph, the Super Sport also runs a 0-62 mph under 2.5 seconds. Incidentally, Bugatti has built only 48 units of Veyron 16.4 Super Sports with additional 199 hp from the standard 1200 hp. This was made possible by adding two more fuel pumps and larger turbochargers to handle the massive engine’s fuel requirements.
To reduce drag, the Super Sport also features a “NACA duct” on the roof instead of the typical air scoop design. The Super Sport 300 stands on a wheelbase measuring 106.7 inches. It also features a four-wheel carbon ceramic disk brakes with rear airbrake, a front and rear double wishbone suspension and a 7-speed dual clutch semi-automatic transmission.
Bugatti as we know, has now replaced the Veyron with the Chiron. But that doesn’t stop the French marque to come up with special edition models just like the Venet Veyron. As though a Bugatti Veyron is not already a one of kind masterpiece, French sculptor Bernar Venet made it even more unique.
The upcoming auction by RM Sotheby’s in Arizona will also have a 1995 Ferrari F50, a 1948 Tucker 48, a 1996 Porsche 911 GT2, a Porsche 959 Komfort, 2 Lamborghini Countach LP400s and a Ferrari Enzo. Consider this as your final call to purchase the special Bugatti Veyron Super Sport 300.
