The making of the 450th, and final, Bugatti Veyron

When the Bugatti Veyron was first announced as the millennium drew closer, many people were sceptical that the basic parameters could ever work.

With more than 1,000 PS, a top speed in excess of 400 km/h, and acceleration from 0 to 100 in less than three seconds, the doubters thought it simply impossible to produce a super sports car with this level of performance while remaining controllable and drivable.

Bugatti engineers had to push the limits of physics and do things that had never been done before in automotive development. The Veyron is the first and only super sports car designed and built to handle any driving situation at any time in its production configuration. Where other super sports cars and hyper cars require special preparation for individual driving situations, the Veyron automatically adjusts its settings without driver input.

At Geneva International Motor Show 2015 Bugatti was celebrating the Veyron, the fastest production supercar in the world whose performance has captivated more than one fan around the world since its launch in 2005.

The world première of the final and 450th Veyron marked the culmination of an unprecedented chapter in automotive history.  Have a rare insight into the Bugatti production in Molsheim, France, and witness the process of manufacturing the last of its kind, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse ‘La Finale’.
