The production car that set the bar for industry standards, and what human engineering can achieve, has recently seen the assembly of its last unit. For more than a decade, the Bugatti Veyron stretched the limits of what had been thought possible for the manufacturing of a road-legal car, the company finally pulling the plug with the once-off farewell edition, the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse aptly named “La Finale.” This 1200bhp beauty (1184 to be exact), with a world record, top speed of 431.072kmh, was sold to a collector in the Middle East, although no official price has been revealed. Units for previous models sold in excess of $2m. While this may be the end of an era, Bugatti have confirmed it will usher in a successor to the Veyron in due course. You can watch the production assembly of the “La Finale” below.
