PARIS, France - Bugatti will celebrate the sale of its final Veyron, the most powerful and fastest production super sports car yet, at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

The Veyron, launched in 2005, was limited to 450 units. Now, February 2015, the automaker has confirmed that all 450 have been sold and Bugatti will unveil its last Veyron - the 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse "La Finale“

VEYRON 'LA FINALE'

The 'La Finale', sporting chassis number 450, will be on display alongside the first Veyron 16.4, which left Bugatti's workshop in Molsheim, France in 2005.

The automaker said: "All 450 Veyron are sold. A huge success for the brand. So far no other carmaker has managed to successfully market a product that stands for unique top-class technical performance and pure luxury in a comparable price/volume range."

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the current Super Sport version of the Veyron is the fastest street-legal production car yet with a top speed of 431km/h. The Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is the fastest roadster in the world, reaching an averaged top speed of 408.84 km/h.
