Only eight of the 450 Bugatti Veyrons remained unsold

Article by Christian A., on January 4, 2015

The Bugatti Veyron was introduced back in 2005 and everyone was amazed by its 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine that produced a whooping 1,001 and 1,250 Nm of torque. Due to the impressive amount of power, the Veyron was able to achieve a top speed of 408.47 km/h (253.81 mpg) during test sessions of the Ehra-Lessien test track on 19 April 2005.

Later in 2010, Bugatti introduced the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, a model that used the same W16 engine boosted to 1,200 hp and 1,500 Nm of torque. The Super Sport achieved a top speed of 431.072 km/h (267.856 mph), making it the fastest production car on the market.

Still, the Super Sport has a top speed electronically limited at 415 km/h (258 mph) in order to protect its tyres. As you may know already, Bugatti said that it will produce only 450 units and it appears that its target will be achieved this year when the remaining 8 units will be sold.

Due to its impressive price tag, the Vyeron was not quite a best seller and since the hybrid supercars such as the McLaren P1, LaFerrari or the Porsche 918 Spyder arrived, VW Group had a tough job to sell it.

In fact, since 2010, Bugatti introduced several special editions of the Veyron such as the Sang Bleu, Soleil du Nuit, Grey Carbon, Royal Dark Blue, Sang Blanc, Matte White, L’Or Blanc, Red Edition, Middle East Editions, Wei Long, Bernar Venet, Sang Noir, Grand Sport Vitesse “1 of 1”, Legend Ettore Bugatti, Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Legend Jean Pierre Wimille, Black Bess, Rembrandt Bugatti, Meo Costantini and Jean Bugatti.

One thing is for sure: Bugatti needs to get rid of the remaining Veyrons as it is working hard on the successor, which will arrive in late 2015. What we do know is that the new hypercar from Bugatti will be faster than the Veyron Super Sport and will be able to surpass its acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) of 2.5 seconds.
