450 examples later and production has ended.
Our friends at XCAR refer to it as the original hypercar. That couldn’t be more spot-on. Say what you will about the Bugatti Veyron, but it was without question one-of-a-kind. A few competitors came about over the years, but none of them have captured the household name status the Veyron achieved. But now production has ended, with a total of 450 examples built since 2005. Unless you attended a major auto show, chances are slight you happened to see one on the road.
The Veyron will always be special because it reestablished the Bugatti brand, despite being a financial drain for parent company Volkswagen. Although it’s retired, the Veyron has rightly earned its place in automotive history.
