The 10-year barnstorming adventure that is the Bugatti Veyron has come to an end – the 450th and final car, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse “La Finale,” concludes production of the supercar. Number 450 has already found a buyer, but is bringing the curtain down for the car in Geneva. The car is on display alongside the first Veyron at the Swiss show.

The last of the 450 Veyron supercars (300 coupés and 150 open-tops) features a carbon bodywork design based on chassis number one in the traditional Bugatti two-tone colour scheme.

For the “La Finale”, the front wing panels, the doors and the areas between the doors and the side air intakes are done in black exposed carbon fibre, while other parts of the outer shell are in red exposed carbon fibre. For the first time in a Veyron, the air scoops and intercooler cover have been painted black.

The car also gets its name incorporated into the outer shell – “La Finale” lettering, in bright Italian Red, is found under the right front headlight and also on the underside of the rear wing. The EB logo and the 16.4 designator have also been done in Italian Red.

As with the exterior, the interior of the final car also pays tribute to the first Veyron. It’s upholstered entirely in leather in a light beige colour known as Silk. Leather also features on the centre seat panels, the footwell, the headliner, the cowling and the rear wall.

Contrast is provided by a striking red tone known as Hot Spur, which dresses up the arm rests, the instrument panel, the dashboard, the side bolsters and the steering wheel rim. Red exposed carbon fibre is also present, on the centre tunnel, on the inserts in the centre console, on the door panels and seat shells.

The “La Finale” also gets a Bugatti elephant insert, located on the rear panel between the seats. The elephant was cast in bronze, given a black patina and then worked into the red exposed carbon fibre cover as an insert, complete with black “450/450” lettering to denote the edition.

No change in output numbers, the 8.0 litre W16 engine here continuing on with 1,200 PS and 1,500 Nm, and performance figures include a 0-100 km/h time of 2.6 seconds and a 410 km/h top speed.

The Veyron 16.4 was launched in 2005, with the the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, with 1,001 PS, coming about in 2008. In 2010, the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport arrived, taking output up to 1,200 PS. The roadster version, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, completed things in 2012. Its 1,500 hp successor is due out next year.
