So the journey of Bugatti Veyron ends here. Bugatti has officially declared that it has sold its 450th and final unit of Veyron to a customer in the Middle East and it will be showcased at Geneva Motor Show in March along with the very first Veyron ever built.

Titled as ‘La Finale’, this open-topped monster comes in shape of Grand Sport Vitesse. The 16-cylinder quad-turbocharged engine in this powerful automobile generates a whopping 1,187 hp. Jumping from rest to 62 mph and hitting a top speed of 268 mph, the Veyron Super Sport is said to be the second fastest car in the world after the 270-mph Hennessey Venom GT.

With a life of total 10 years, the first Veyron was revealed in 2005 boasting 987 hp which was further upgraded to 1,187 hp in the year 2010 as company unveiled Super Sport. The French automaker sells each car for around $2.6 million, and by selling 450 of these open-topped monsters, the company is said to have generated a revenue of approximately $1.2 billion.

The news about second-generation Veyron is also rife as it was caught being tested at the Nurburgring. It’s obvious the successor Veyron would be lighter in weight generating unimaginable power  (rumors say around 1,500bhp) using advanced hybrid technology.
