gtspirit bugattilafinale 5


We are at the Volkswagen Auto Group Night at the Geneva Motor Show 2015 and one of the stars of the show has been unveiled, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale. The title, as you may guess, the name is french for the ‘last one’. The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale marks the end of the 450 Veyron production life.

The final variant of the Veyron looks phenomenal, making the most of the unique and striking shape of the Veyron that we have become so accustomed with. The body combines red carbon fibre, the first time it has featured on a Bugatti, with a number of black gloss elements in addition to the black wheels. The underside of the jaw-dropping rear wing/air brake reads La Finale. It is reported that the car has been purchased by a Middle Eastern customer who had a strong influence over the configuration of the car that is said to pay homage to the very first Veyron.

The interior, as you would expect, also features a number of unique touches. As with the exterior, the interior is also designed to pay homage to the first Veyron, selecting a striking red tone known as “Hot Spur”. This red appears in the arm rests, the instrument panel, the dashboard, the side bolsters and on the steering wheel rim.

Under the unique bodywork and customised interior, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale features the same mechanicals as all other Vitesse models. Consequently, it is powered by a quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine delivering a total of 1200 hp and 1106 lb-ft of torque. As a result, it will be capable of hitting 100 km/ in a mere 2.5 seconds as well as a top speed of 408.84 km/h.

The president of Bugatti Wolfgang Durheimer was discussing the end of the Veyrons producing line saying, “So far no other carmaker has managed to successfully market a product that stands for unique top-class technical performance and pure luxury in a comparable price/volume range An unprecedented chapter in automobile history has reached its climax.”
