The final Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 is sold
Last week we had a chance to get a good look at the 2007 Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 owned by Ken Lingenfelter at the EyesOn Design show and even if you’re not a fan of the Veyron’s distinct styling, the car is marvel of engineering and being in its presence is a great experience for any gearhead. Bugatti introduced the Veyron in 2003 with the intention of production just 300 examples of the $1.7 million dollar supercar and with the selling of the 300th Veyron – the only way that you can get ahold of a hardtop Bugatti is to see one pop up on the used car market.
Since being introduced, the 1,001 metric horsepower (987hp in US standards) Veyron has set a variety of records including the most powerful production car ever made and with a top speed of 253.81mph, it held the record for the highest top speed until it was bested by the Veyron Super Sport which turned out a speed of 267.85mph. The Veyron can rocket from 0-62mph in just 2.46 seconds and when moving at top speed, the 16 cylinder quad turbo engine yields an impressively bad 3 miles per gallon. However, the odds are good that if you have the coin to buy one of the most amazing cars in the history of the automobile – you aren’t too worried about your fuel economy. When you are experiencing the rush of going 250+ mph, I can't imagine that fuel economy ever crosses your mind.
The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 was one of the most amazing vehicles the motoring world had seen when it was introduced and even though other supercars from around the world have stepped up, the mighty Veyron has remained one of the most well-respected cars in the high performance world. The company and parent brand Volkswagen Auto Group have both been quiet about what is next but rumors suggest that Bugatti may offer the Galiber sedan, based on the architecture of the Porsche Panamera.
