The last ever Bugatti Veyron coupe ever built is selling at auction in January with an estimated sale price of £2 million.
When new in 2013, this Super Sport would have cost £1.2 million and was the last of 300 coupes ever made. It comes with the serial number 300 and its chassis number also ends in matching figures.
This particular car was one of eight US-spec Super Sports sold and has been in the original buyer’s hands since. Its history includes being displayed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show alongside the first ever Veyron produced.
Since being sold, this example has covered less than 400 miles. Some 269 of those miles were added when the car was being tested by Bugatti prior to delivery to its first owner. It has since been serviced regularly in Miami and Beverly Hills.
Only 48 Veyron 16.4 Super Sports were made by Bugatti with an extra 199hp that took power to 1200hp. This was achieved with larger turbochargers and two extra fuel pumps to cope with the engine’s demand for petrol.
Another distinguishing feature of the Super Sport is a NACA-style duct on the roof that replaces the usual air intakes.
The Super Sport has a top speed electronically limited to 257mph and it covers 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds.
In the same auction sale by RM Sotheby’s in Arizona is a Ferrari Enzo, a pair of Lamborghini Countach LP400s and a Porsche 959 Komfort. Other lots include a 1996 Porsche 911 GT2, a 1948 Tucker 48 and 1995 Ferrari F50.
