The French automaker Bugatti has owned up that just eight units of iconic Bugatti Veyron are left available with the limited production Veyron to cease from the market
Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Durheimer revealed that just eight examples of the powerful Veyron remain to be sold. He confirmed that Bugatti will “get ready with the pre-series cars to support the launch of the next car,” which means the Veyron’s successor will be seen later this year even though production won’t commence until 2016.
The 300 coupe options had completely sold out by September 2011, and now just the Grand Sport and Vitesse roadster options remain available to purchase. It was back in the earlier half of the last decade that first exclusive vehicles of the Veyron showed up in the market. Initially, in 2005, Bugatti set the number of units that would be built at 300. But due to the amazing reception the supercar got, the production number increased to 450, which also accommodated the open top version Veyron Grand Sports. The current Veyrons offer 1,200 horsepower and a top speed of 255 mph for approximately $2.2 million. Most likely it will take another two or three months for the final eight Bugattis to be purchased, or even quicker than that.
Rumour has it that Veyeron’s successor will be named Chiron, not only because it’s a reference to a creature from Greek mythology but also as a tribute to Bugatti driver Louis Chiron, who has played a key role in shaping the supercars. The new Bugatti supercar will be revealed this year, most likely at latter-half expo such as the Frankfurt Auto Show. The first examples to be built will all be pre-production units; the first customer examples should be rolling off the line sometime in 2016. Wolfgang Durheimer promised that Bugatti will continue to produce the “most luxurious, fastest cars in the world.”
