Yes, chassis number 001.
It was in 2006 when Bugatti unveiled its now iconic Veyron and changed the world of hypercars forever. A total of 300 coupes and 150 roadsters were built by the time production ended earlier this year. And now Veyron chassis number 001 is hitting the auction block next month at Pebble Beach. Finished in two-tone red and black with a beige interior and sport seats, the combination hearkens back to classic Bugatti color schemes.
Veyron 001 was first delivered to a US customer on the East Coast and later arrived in Beverly Hills, California. When the final production Veyron was unveiled for the 2015 Geneva Auto show, Bugatti actually flew 001 to its Molsheim, France, headquarters for the occasion. Both cars were then put on display at Geneva to celebrate 10 years of Veyron production. But now this 2006 Veyron 16.4 is back stateside to find a new owner. RM Auctions estimates that it’ll sell for somewhere between $1,800,000 to $2,400,000, but we’re predicting it’ll go for even more. Photos courtesy of RM Auctions.
