World's most expensive car Bugatti Veyron stops production
Bugatti Veyron, one of the fastest cars on the planet has finally sold its 450th and also its last ever car after ten years since its first production.
The final Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse car is aptly named, 'La Finale.'
The Business Insider says Bugatti has confirmed that the last 1,200 horsepower Grand Sport Vitesse Roadster will be displayed at the upcoming 2015 Geneva Motor Show next month.
Volkswagen AG's most exclusive brand, Bugatti Veyron was first introduced back in 2005 as the first vehicle to top the 1,000 horsepower mark and it has been said since then that only 450 units of the Veyron will be produced.

The chief designer of this beauty is Hartmut Warkuss, while the exterior of the car is designed by Jozef Kaban.
So how fast can a Veyron go you wonder?
The Veyron is recognized by the Guinness World Records as the fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a top speed of 431.072 km/h.
Although the world had seen cars that are capable hitting top speed effortlessly such as the McLaren Formula One, but the Veyron is designed to be luxurious and is suitable to be driven outside racing tracks.
“In the Veyron, Bugatti has created an automobile icon and established itself as the world’s most exclusive supercar brand. The Veyron is unique in many respects even ten years after its launch,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, the president of Bugatti.

Rumours have also said that a new replacement for the Veyron is on its way and may appear as early as the end of this year. We think it will definitely be something with even more power, speed and luxury.
