It’s heading to auction in January and is expected to sell for close to $2M.
This is the last Bugatti Veyron coupe ever built. And while it will never be as fast or as pretty as the Chiron that replaced it, just 450 examples of the revolutionary supercar were produced in a span of 10 years. Of those 450 examples produced, just 48 of them bore the Super Sport designation – making this one an exceedingly rare find.
A centerpiece at RM Sotheby’s Arizona sale next month, one lucky collector will drive away with this special supercar. Under the hood, it packs a more powerful version of the signature 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine. A total of 1,200-horsepower (894 kilowatts) is at the new owner’s disposal, propelling the car 60 mph (96 kmh) in 2.5 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 257 mph (413 kmh).
Just 400 miles (643 kilometers) have been put on the car since new, 269 of those miles driven by Bugatti engineers as part of the car’s rigorous pre-delivery testing protocol. In its lifetime it’s only had one owner to note, and was regularly serviced at Bugatti dealerships in Miami, Florida, and Beverly Hills, California. In 2015, it was put on display at the Geneva Motor Show alongside the first Veyron coupe ever built, noting the difference a decade makes.
Brand new, this particular example would have cost you around $1.7M. Today, given its rarity, lineage, and the selling price of previous examples at auction, it’s sure to set you back closer to $2M – though, RM Sotheby’s hasn’t given a pre-auction estimate just yet.
Alongside this last Veyron ever built, a number of other exceedingly rare supercars will cross the block, including a Ferrari Enzo, a pair of Lamborghini Countach LP400s and a Porsche 959 Komfort. It will all take place the weekend of January 19-20, 2017, in Arizona.
