If you’ve been diligently saving your lunch money and tax refunds to buy an uber-exclusive Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, I’ve got some bad news for you. Production of the $2.3 million supercar has sold out, and Bugatti won’t be making any more examples. The final production count was five of the black and orange “World Record Edition” Veyron, which was a little tacky for my own (highly refined) taste, plus another 25 of the ordinary Super Sport edition. This means that at least 30 people in the world have a serious car jones and more disposable income that you and I can ever hope to achieve. On the plus side, it’s likely that at least one owner is stepping up from a “base model” Veyron, which should give you the ability to bargain on the selling price if you can settle for a basic Veyron (just like everyone else owns).
The SuperSport maintains a Bugatti tradition of naming for their final production version automobiles. In the case of the Veyron, 16.4 Super Sport buyers got a bump to 1,200 horsepower and an electronically limited top speed of 257 miles per hour. That’s slower than the Bugatti Super Sport’s world record top speed of 268 miles per hour, but necessary to ensure the tires don’t fly apart at speeds above 257 miles per hour. Blame it on the lawyers, who seem to suck the fun out of everything these days.
