Bugatti Veyron production comes to an end

With 300 orders in the books, Bugatti has ceased production of its incredible Veyron 16.4.

After a seven-year production run, Bugatti has sold its final Veyron 16.4 model. Bugatti originally set out to sell 300 examples of the Veyron, and the French automaker has reportedly hit that magical number.

Bugatti sold just five units of the Veyron during its initial 2005 production year, but sales climbed as high as 81 units in 2007. Bugatti had sold a grand total of 291 Veyrons at the end of 2010, with the final 9 examples spoken for during the first six months of 2011.

Despite hitting its original target, Bugatti says its convertible Veyron Grand Sport "remains available to automotive connoisseurs." It remains unknown if Bugatti simply has a surplus of Grand Sport models or if the automaker will continue to produce the drop top beyond its 300 unit target.

Whatever the case, the Veyron will go down as one of the most incredible cars in automotive history, featuring a quad-turbocharged 16-cylinder engine, 1,001 horsepower and a price tag well into the seven figure range. The Veyron Supersport was even more bonkers, sporting 1,200 horsepower and a slimmer waistline.

Delivery of the final Bugatti Veyron is scheduled for this fall to an unknown European buyer.
