Veyron 1A decade after order books opened, the Veyron, one of the most iconic models in the history of the automobile and the first production vehicle to be capable of a 400 km/h top speed, has finally been laid to rest.

 

One of the most impressive feats of engineering (and one of the most expensive, at an average of R20 million per vehicle), the Veyron was set for an original production run of 300 for the coupe models, which the company completed in 2011 – whilst this La Finale is the very last of the additional 150 roadster.

Apparently, a collector in the Middle East had the honour of purchasing the La Finale, which makes use of the recently revised version of the quad-turbo 8,0-litre W16 engine that produces 880 kW and 1 500 N.m of torque.  The 0-100 km/h sprint is dispatched in just 2,6 seconds.

 

The French marque, which was resurrected by the Volkswagen Group in 1998, has managed to churn out various special edition models of the Veyron since production started in 2005, including the Super Sport that reclaimed the mantle of world’s fastest production car with a 431 km/h top speed in 2010.

 

A successor to the Veyron has been in the pipeline for a few years now, but we’ve just managed to see renderings and hear rumours about the astronomical figures it’ll no doubt boast.
