Bugatti Sells the 400th Veyron; Only 50 Units Remain
The Bugatti Veyron was unveiled in 2005 and since then, a total of 400 units were produced. Considering that only 450 units were supposed to be produced, that means that only 50 units are left. So, if you plan to buy a Veyron, you had better get to writing a big check soon.
The 400th Veyron produced was a Grand Sport Vitesse "Jean-Pierre Wimille" edition specially developed for a customer in the Middle East who paid €2.13 million for it — $2.9 million at the current exchange rates, excluding taxes and transport. With this unit, the Vitesse "Jean-Pierre Wimille" special edition is officially sold out.
From all the 450 units, 300 were coupes and 150 units were roadsters. The roadster model has only sold 100 units so far, so that mean all the 50 remaining units are roadster models — more precisely, Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse and other variants.
"With the Veyron, Bugatti has established itself as the most exclusive and most luxurious super sports car brand in the world. The Veyron is a unique success story and sets a high standard for the future of Bugatti,’ said Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S with this occasion.

The special-edition Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse "Jean-Pierre Wimille" Edition made its world debut in August at California’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It is one of six "Bugatti Legend" models that pay tribute to Jean-Pierre Wimille — a racecar driver that brought two Le Mans victories to Bugatti.
The model was inspired by the Bugatti 57G Tank that won the Le Mans in 1937 and features a two-tone paint job that combines blue clear-coated carbon fiber and a light Wimille Bleu.
