Bugatti has sold the final Veyron 16.4 model of the 300-car production run, marking the end of a chapter in the manufacturer’s history.
Introduced seven years ago, the prestige car has been a huge hit with thrill-seeking motorists, thanks to its 8.0-litre 16 cylinder quad-turbocharged engine, which produces 987 bhp and accelerates the car to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds.
The last million-pound Veyron has been purchased by a European driver and will be delivered later this year.
Among the 300 Bugatti Veyron cars produced are limited edition models including the Veyron Pur Sang, Veyron fbg par Hermes and Veyron Super Sport, all taking motoring to the excess.
The hypercars are only driven by the most wealthy; aside from the price tag, the Veyron is also known for its huge running costs.
An annual service is around £12,000, with a new set of unique Michelin tyres costing in the region of £22,000.
But drivers do get a lot for their money.
The Veyron can top 250 mph and in July 2010, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport broke the landspeed world record for production cars, reaching 268 mph at the Volkswagen Group grounds near Wolfsburg.
Speed-loving motorists with money to splash need not worry, as they can still get their hands on the Veyron Grand Sport, which will remain in production until 150 models have been sold.
Priced at £1.25 million, the world’s fastest convertible can do 250 mph with the top in place, or 223 mph with the roof down. There is no confirmation on how many are left, so potential buyers should make their move soon.
There is also the production version of the Galibier 16C concept, a super-luxury car due to hit the roads in 2013-14, to keep speed-seekers happy.
