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.
