It turns out there are more wealthy car nuts than
we thought - there's so much demand for the Bugatti Veyron
that the current wait for delivery of the 'bahn-burner is
14-15 months, and Bugatti
is increasing its annual production capacity for the supercar
by 40 percent, from 50 to 70
units, to deal with the backlog. Still not a large number, but when you figure that the car sells for nearly $1.2
million, the extra 20 Veyrons
add up to a significant chunk of change.
Where are they going? To the
speed-starved U.S. market, apparently. The majority of the 14 cars completed so far are going to the U.S., and Bugatti
sees the greatest demand for the rest of the production run also in the U.S., particularly in southern California and
the greater New York area.
With the limited edition Veyron selling out faster than expected, look for a new
Bugatti model to be announced soon.
