I am in mourning.
I received this from a reader today.
Bugatti Sells 450th and Last Veyron
It’s the end of an era
(Bloomberg) — Volkswagen AG sold the 450th and final Bugatti Veyron, marking the end of one of the most exclusive supercars ever built.
The last Veyron is an open-top Grand Sport Vitesse variant, which boasts 1,200 horsepower. The car, called La Finale, will be on display next week at the Geneva Motor Show. The 450 Veyrons were sold for an average price of about 2.3 million euros ($2.6 million) each, Molsheim, France-based Bugatti said Monday in a statement.
After buying the Bugatti brand in 1998, Volkswagen revived the carmaker, which was originally founded by designer Ettore Bugatti. The goal was to develop a vehicle both powerful enough to drive faster than 400 kilometers (249 miles) per hour as well as stylish and comfortable enough for a trip to the opera. The Veyron was first presented in 2005 and is part of Volkswagen’s effort to show it can compete on all levels of the auto industry.
I guess I’ll have to watched the used market.
Meanwhile, I wonder if I should put wind deflectors on my VW.
