2015 Geneva Motor Show: Final Bugatti Veyron To Be Presented

Written By:

The Geneva Motor Show is a much awaited event for auto enthusiasts as well as for carmakers. What makes the 2015 show even more special is the cars that are headed there to be displayed.

Apart from the Ferrari's and the Honda NSX, there will be a very special contender this time. The very last Bugatti Veyron.

Bugatti initially planned to build just 450 units of the Veyron, the world's fastest car. 300 hardtop versions and 150 open-top Grand Sport versions. Although the hard top versions sold years ago, there were 8 open top Veyrons that were still available to customers.

That was enough to make buyers go crazy and within a short period, 7 sold and one left, that will be showcased at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. There is a high possibility that this car is sold and belongs to a customer.

Powering this car is a 8.0-litre W16 engine with four turbochargers that delivers 1200 hp at 6400 rpm and a humungous 1500 Nm of torque between 3000 to 5000 rpm.

The sucessor, although that will take a few years will be faster and rumours say that it will have the existing Veyron's 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine, but upgraded to deliver 1500 hp. The car will also use hybrid technology and a gearbox mounted electric motor.
