Bugatti is saying that Veyron production started last week, after six years of setbacks and nearly $400 million in investment (an amount not likely to be recovered by selling 300 cars). Don't expect to see production versions of the Veyron at the Frankfort or Detroit shows, as Bugatti views the half-million dollar price tag of participating in such as event to be cost prohibitative. Given the economics of the whole program, that seems a bit penny-wise and pound-foolish to us. Now that the first fasteners are getting turned on the 250 MPH supercar, talk is already turning towards a second model. This would be a front-engine four-seater of some sort.
