Bugatti Veyron nearing absolute retirement

Bugatti Veyron nearing absolute retirement

It’s style never appealed to all but there was no denying its raw power and now the Bugatti Veyron is looking down the barrel of retirement. It tool seven years and a gang of special edition variants but the Veyron 16.4 hardtop has now reached its promised limit of just 300 cars.

The model will continue for a limited time in Veyron Grand Sport convertible form but for now hardtop production is over.

In 2003 the Veyron stormed on to the hyper car scene and was unmatched in terms of aggression and absolute power. Powered by a 8.0 litre W16 engine, which is force fed by four turbochargers the Veyron produces 736kW in regular form and 883kW in Super Sport trim.

The Veyron’s top speed is a confirmed 408.47km/h, and 431.072km/h for the Super Sport. The 0-100km/h sprint is dispatched in a terrifying 2.46 seconds, and after 10 seconds you’d be already pulling 240km/h.

So what is Bugatti going to dazzle us with next? There are rumours of production for its Galibier concept which would see a 600kW mill dropped into a four-door coupe body. It could be exciting but for now Bugatti is keeping mum about future projects.
