As I’m sure you know by now, Bugatti recently managed to sell the 450th Veyron and thus concluded the production of the world’s most astounding motor vehicle to date. The final Veyron, called Bugatti Vitesse La Finale, is currently on display alongside chassis number one of the Veyron 16.4 before being delivered to its owner.
As is the case with pretty much every single Veyron that left company’s factory in Molsheim over the past ten years, Bugatti Vitesse La Finale is a one-off in the sense that is features a unique paint scheme chosen by the customer, in this case exposed red carbon fiber. But it a little bit more unique than the other 449 units, as it features “La Finale” lettering on its rear wing and on the headrests.
Mechanically, the car is the same as every other Vitesse, which is a 1,200 horsepower, four-wheel-drive monster with the ability to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under three seconds and reach a roof-down top speed of over 410 km/h.
“When designing the “La Finale”, the designers sought inspiration from the first Veyron in order to provide a visual conclusion to the success story of this super sports car,” says Bugatti’s chief designer Achim Anscheidt. “Although both vehicles have a black and red colour scheme, chassis numbers one and 450 still have their own individual character which we have identified visually. Ultimately, every Veyron is unique.” The owner of the Grand Sport Vitesse “La Finale” also had a say in the design of the vehicle.
