The Veyron resurrected a brand and destroyed records when it launched in 2005, but now it is no more.
Re-launching the Bugatti name under the stewardship of Volkswagen, no expense was spared in creating a supercar that was truly super.
Never awing audiences with its style or impressing journalists with finesse, it was instead an engineering project that, above all else, demanded respect.
With 16-cylinders and four turbochargers the Veyron arrived with an outrageous 987 hp and later was offered with a 1,187 hp version.

The original car boasted a top speed of 252.97 mph while a Super Sport model later topped that with a Guinness World Record of 267.856 mph record.
Now the final of the 450 Veyrons has been sold, reportedly to a customer in the Middle East. Called “La Finale” it will officially be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
With an average transaction price of roughly $2.6 million per car, total sales for the limited run of just 450 units generated revenue of almost $1.2 billion.
