Congratulations, and a toast with a pair of champagne glasses, to Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. for selling 220 of their ultra-exotic Veyron 16.4 models. With 132 examples sitting safely in customer garages worldwide (except for this one...doh!), and 88 more on firm order, Bugatti is moving closer to the end of its reported 300-car production run.

We told you last year that demand has been strong for the 16-cylinder quad-turbo model. With deposits on the $1.4 million cars quickly pushing the waiting list to over a year, Bugatti increased production last July to bring the wait to under twelve months. Simply being otherworldly drivers isn't necessarily enough, either. With customers showing more interest in "special" cars, the factory is authorizing an "individualisation programme" to meet those requests. These days, if the "standard" Bugatti just doesn't do it for you, there is always the Bugatti Veyron Pur Sang with its polished aluminum body and unpainted carbon fiber. Not plush enough? Then try the opulent Bugatti Veyron Fbg Hermes for some exclusivity. Or, maybe you'd prefer the Bugatti Pegaso Edition instead?

Regardless of which Veyron floats your boat, if you're considering adding yourself to the lucky list of 220, do yourself a favor and check out the Bugatti online configurator before you march into one of the 32 sales locations around the world. Their available 'exterior color' palette is quite overwhelming, so you may want to take a few minutes to mull over it before you commit.

      I'd like to see the Veyron pace a nascar 'race', and then win it.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I thought the point of a pace car is so that others can keep up with it?

        Haha that would be quite a spectacle indeed (or, heck, a one-make race)

      Phenomenal car yes, but I do wonder how fast can it get around TG track?

      Man, I really need to marry the daughter of one of these guys...

      This is the ultimate Drag Race between a 1000 HP Bugatti Veyron and a Eurofighter.

      The two will start side-by-side from a standstill. The car will go one mile, slow down enough to turn around on a full-width runway, then come back the one mile.

      The fighter will take off as quickly as possible, go straight UP one mile, turn around and come back down to about 100 feet off the deck to fly parallel to the car to attempt to cross the finish line first.

      Check it out:

      can someone please tell me what makes the Pegaso and Hermes "special edition"? Is it really just the custom stickers and embroidery?
      • 7 Years Ago
      They only sold 220 of these things? I feel privileged; I just saw one in Ginza last week.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I hope they find a way to keep building Veyrons forever. Don't stop at 300.

      And then get going on that little aluminium roadster that was predicted about a year ago. A hundred grand. A real lightweight Bugatti.

      How, many, f'ing times, will I have, to say this.

      Whilst the Veyron is a phenomenal engineering showcase, it's a shame that it's become a "luxury" item in the same category as platinum iPods and diamond-encrusted mobile phones.

      I think the fact that the McLaren F1's special editions were to do with Le Mans whilst Bugatti's are to do with Hermès tells you all you need to know...

        They are different types of cars though. Veyron was meant to be the ultimate Grand Tourer from the jump. If they wanted it to be a race car for the road they would have made it into that.

        With that said I need to win the Lottery FAST
