The Bugatti Veyron: 8-litre W16 monstrosity, 64 valves, four turbochargers, a total of 10 radiators, various output figures ranging from 1,000 hp to 1,200 hp, blistering 2.6 seconds century sprint, top speed in excess of 400 km/h; some say it’s the greatest car ever made, while Jeremy Clarkson thinks it’s the greatest car we will ever see in our lifetime.
A good ten years and 450 units produced since the first Veyron shook the world, it’s time to bid farewell to the decorated four-wheeled rocket. The 450th Veyron Sport Vitesse La Finale (chassis number 450) has already been sold to a Middle Eastern customer and it will be on display at Geneva alongside the very first Veyron 16.4.

The La Finale signals the end of the current Veyron era, but the end is far out of reach for Bugatti. Sources indicated that the Veyron will be succeeded in 2016, boasting some serious hardware that could make up to 1,500 horsepower and 2,000 Nm of torque. It all seems too good to be true as of now, but didn’t we say that before the Veyron’s conception?
