400th Bugatti Veyron sold since its debut in 2005 - just 50 left

Bugatti Veyron was launched in 2005 as a coupe limited to just 300 units – the Veyron 16.4 with 987bhp and the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport with 1,183bhp are both now sold out.

The coupe was followed by an additional 150 roadsters ( Grand Sport and Vitesse), of which 100 have now been sold, raising the total Veyrons sold to 400 units and leaving just 50 examples of the roadster left to buy.

With the current rate of 50 cars sold a year we can expect the last Veyron to roll off the assembly line in late 2014 or in early 2015.

The 400th Veyron is a Grand Sport Vitesse “Jean-Pierre Wimille” special edition.

This specific car destined to a customer in Middle-East is the third and final Vitesse “Jean-Pierre Wimille” in the exclusive six-part edition “Les Légendes de Bugatti”.

The Legend Edition “Jean-Pierre Wimille” is priced at €2.13 million, plus taxes and transport.

Based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, the Jean-Pierre Wimille edition uses a 1183bhp 8.0-litre quad turbo W16, goo for a sprint from 0-62mph in just 2.6 seconds and from 0-124mph in only 7.1 seconds.

Three more of these three-unit special editions part of the Les Legendes de Bugatti are to follow out of the remaining 50 cars. One of the three is reportedly to be named after Rembrandt Bugatti, designer of the company’s elephant hood ornament.

Since April this year the Grand Sport Vitesse is the fastest roadster in the world with a record of 408.84 km/h (254mph) driven with the roof off. The Veyron 16.4 Super Sport holds the fastest production car record of 431.072 km/h (267.8mph) since 2010.
