Bugatti made history in 2005 with the first Veyron 16.4 – a car that broke performance records while paving the way for the cars of the future. Recently, the famous automaker revealed that it just sold its 400th Veyron and that it would only manufacture 50 more of these stunning beauties, which means that the production era of the Bugatti Veyron will soon come to an end.
The 400th Veyron was actually the third and final member of the special Jean-Pierre Wimille edition, which is in turn the first special edition of the Bugatti Legends line – a fantastic collection of Veyron automobiles that are being made honoring the brand’s most famous individuals. The Bugatti Veyron will always be remembered as one of the fastest production cars in existence, and even though cars will always be getting faster and faster, the Veyron will always be the first car ever to break the 248mph barrier.
Last but not least, it’s worth noting that the Veyron was not made to score a profit. It is a well-known fact that Bugatti never actually makes a profit whenever a Veyron is sold but barely recovers the money it invested in the production process. The final 50 Veyrons will definitely take some time to make, but we are pretty sure that as the years go by, the model will become a highly coveted and valuable classic.
