300: The Final Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Sold

The final Bugatti Veyron 16.4 has really been sold. The story of the Bugatti Veyron began one year before it made its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1999. Volkswagen bought the rights to the Bugatti name in 1998 and set itself on a course to build the faster-ever production car. Capable of hitting over 250mph and going from 0-62mph in an incredible 2.5 seconds, the Veyron 16.4 is also one of the most expensive production cars ever.

With a $1.7 million dollar price tag, maintenance alone on the Veyron 16.4 costs a cool $20,000 per year. For example, a set of Michelin tires, which are unique only to the Veyron, run $35,000 per set. The first production car ever to have a full carbon-fiber monocoque, the Bugatti Veyron boasted an 8.0-liter W16 engine which boasted 1,001hp and 922 lb-ft of torque matched to a seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox. 'In the Veyron the Bugatti team has created a vehicle that has already become an icon of automotive history,' said the President of Bugatti, Wolfgang Durheimer.

If you truly need a new Bugatti Veyron and nothing else will do, you can still purchase the open-air Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. At a cost of $285,000 more than the coupe version ($1.99 million dollars total), the world's fastest convertible reaches 223mph with the top down.
