It’s hard to believe that a decade has gone by since the introduction of the mighty Bugatti Veyron. The hypercar that shook the automotive industry consisted of a combination of improbable numbers which, in Super Sport trim, was able to hit a maximum speed of 425 km/h.

Now, the final Veyron (number 450), aptly named the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale, has been sold to a wealthy customer from the Middle East. Before it gets tucked away inside a climate-controlled garage, likely never to be seen again, Bugatti has confirmed that the final Veyron will be displayed at the upcoming 2015 Geneva Motor Show this March.

As one of Bugatti’s most salient chapter draws to a close, word is already circulating that work on the successor to the Veyron is underway. While details remain sketchy, expect the replacement to be powered by an even stronger version of the current 8.0 litre, W16 engine – with two electrically-operated turbochargers helping to produce a power figure in excess of 1,500 hp.
