Bugatti has (finally) managed to sell the 450th and final Veyron to a wealthy customer from the Middle East.

Introduced back in 2005, the Bugatti Veyron is at the end of its lifespan after a decade and a ridiculously high number of special editions. The last unit is a Grand Sport Vitesse suitably called "La Finale" which will be showcased next week in Geneva alongside the first Veyron. Unsurprisingly, the final unit was acquired by a customer from the Middle East and most likely the car will come with some badges denoting it's the last ever Veyron.

A successor - likely to be called Chiron - is already in the works and will allegedly get at least two electrically-powered turbochargers boosting total power of the W16 8.0-liter engine to a jaw-dropping 1,500 HP (1,103 kW). Top speed is believed to increase to 288 mph (463.5 km/h) while the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint should take less than two and a half seconds.

The new Bugatti model will probably be previewed towards the end of the year by a concept before being revealed in production form sometime in 2016.
