Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport [w/video]

Getting Intimate With The Supercar On A 479-Mile Road Trip It's nearly impossible to secure seat time in a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport. Not only are they hard to find (production volume in the low hundreds makes the supercar as rare as active members of the Right Said Fred fan club), but the $2 million sticker price dissuades most owners from handing over their sacred keys.

    1392327000

    There may be trouble brewing with the supercar specialists at Bugatti. The French brand shocked the world with the Veyron when it debuted in 2006, but at eight years old, the hypercar may be getting a little stale to its wealthy clientele. What's worse, Bugatti insiders say a replacement is still years away. Bugatti planned an initial run of 300 Veyron ...

    With production of the Veyron coming to an end, all eyes are fixed squarely on Bugatti and what it will do next.
