Bugatti Veyron GrandSport Production to Continue Through 2014
With 105 Veyron GrandSports left to be built, a renewed contract makes it clear that the Bugatti Veyron GrandSport will continue until the end of 2014.
The production of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 was completed nearly a year ago, but the GrandSport is left to be sold-out. Since Bugatti’s contract with renowned transmission supplier Ricardo had recently ended, Bugatti had no other choice but to renew its contract with Ricardo in order to get the remaining 105 examples built. It is stipulated that the new contract will expire at end of2014. Once the contract runs out, no one really knows what will happen.
So, for those who would like to buy a new Bugatti — hardly anybody considering its $1.9 million price tag – you only have the choice of the open-top GrandSport and GrandSport Vitesse. With 105 examples left on the shelves, you have plenty of time to consider you purchase.
The Bugatti Veyron GrandSport is powered by an 8.0-liter W-16 engine that develops a total of 1,001 horsepower at 6,000 rpm. Unlike the 252 mph hitting Veyron 16.4, the GrandSport is limited to 217 mph, which is still stratospheric for an open-top for a car.
