The final Bugatti Veyron Super Sport coupe is being sold at auction next month and is expected to fetch £2million
13 December 2016

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.

Our Verdict

Bugatti Veyron
The world doesn't need a car like the Bugatti Veyron, but the fact it exists at all is reason for celebration

The Bugatti Veyron redefines what's possible in a road car, but does it justify its eye-watering price?

If you can afford £2m+ why have a secondhand Veyron, surely you just slap down your deposit on a Chiron.

If your a billionaire collector numpty then wouldn't you already have or had a Veyron.

I get prices increase due to demand or rarety (F40's Mac F1's Fezza 250's etc.) but is the Veyron in that class.

It's not the prettiest thing in the world, it's not a track munching handling god, it's not particulary rare compaired to others.

What made it special was the performance and the seeming effortlessness of it.

It's an engineering marvel of that there is no doubt but now that's all being surpassed in everyway by it's new sibling, why would you not have a Chiron.

Maybe they want multiple Veyrons for their different properties around the world? If you are in LA one day and London the next wouldn't it be easier than transporting the car across the world with you? Maybe they just want to collect them. If a Ferrari collector brought an Enzo would he or she be a numpty because it isnt a LaFerrari? These aren't Vauxhall Astras. They were special when new and this specialness carries on when they get replaced with newer models.

According to Bugatti, a typical Bugatti buyer has 84 cars, 3 jets and a yacht. They aren't thinking in terms of distributing their cash or spending it in a efficient manner because money is no object. A couple of Chirons here, and couple of Veyrons there it doesn't mean anything to them. They arent giving up their annual package holiday to scrape together a PCP deposit for a Vauxhall VXR.

They have rather sensibly waited until the new year to auction it so that any potential buyers can scrape together their Christmas card money to put towards it.
