Bugatti announced in Geneva that the final Veyron has been manufactured. In 2005 Bugatti announced the company would build 450 Veyrons for public sale. This month, March 2015, the final car had been rolled out.
The V16 longitudinal mid-engine cranked out an impressive 1200 horsepower. The original Veyron had a top speed of 252.97 mph. Guinness World Records as the fastest street-legal production car in the world.
The Veyron's chief designer was Hartmut Warkuss, and the exterior was designed by Jozef Kabaň of Volkswagen, with much of the engineering work being conducted under the guidance of engineering chief Wolfgang Schreiber.
The Veyron EB 16.4 is named in honour of Pierre Veyron, a Bugatti development engineer, test driver and company race driver who, with co-driver Jean-Pierre Wimille, won the 1939 24 hours of Le Mans while driving a Bugatti. The "EB" refers to Bugatti founder Ettore Bugatti
