The Last Bugatti Veyron

Bugatti is preparing to show off its final Veyron at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Car number 450 will make its debut early next month.

While this may be a surprise to those who don’t follow the car world closely–all is going as planned. Bugatti only ever planned to produce a total of 450 cars–300 coupes and 150 convertible Gran Sports.

According to Motor Authority the “run of 300 coupes ran out years ago,” and it’s believed that the car showing up in Geneva will be a Gran Sport. That’s right–that’s the one that costs right around $2.25 million.

This is not  the end of the car that is considered to be a work of art as well as an amazing piece of machinery. No. According to the interview with Bugatti head, Wolfgang Dürheimer (who also heads up Bentley) in Auto Motor und Sport, the line will be shut down to prepare for a new –likely hybrid–faster–and more fascinating car from Bugatti.

In fact, Digital Trends speculates that it will be “another supercar, possibly called Chiron, possibly boasting 1,500 hp, and possibly with a hybrid powertrain.”

While, over at Top Gear, they report that Bugatti wont build a SuperVeyron because it would confuse the carmaker’s customers.

If you were hoping to get your hands on it-don’t get your hopes up–it’s likely that this car is sold before it’s even shown, much like the  the Bugatti  Les Légendes Veyron Vitesse that showed up this year in Pebble Beach.

From Bugatti.
From Bugatti.

HT to the guys at Motor Authority for the lead.
