Its looks have polarised opinions since international debut in 2003, but the Bugatti Veyron's status as one of the most significant models in supercar history is unquestionable.

All things have an ending however, and after seven years and a number of special edition variants, the $2.5 million dollar Veyron 16.4 hardtop has hit its promised limit of just 300 cars.

If you need a refresher, the Veyron is powered by an 8.0 litre W16 engine, blessed with not one, not two, but four turbochargers. Power is rated at 736kW in its regular trim, and 883kW in the Super Sport version.

The Veyron's top speed is a confirmed 408.47km/h, and 431.072km/h for the Super Sport. The 0-100km/h sprint is covered in a properly neck-snapping 2.46 seconds, and 240km/h is reached in just 9.8 seconds.

Buyers that have held out until the last minute are still in with a chance: Volkswagen says there is still a supply of the Veyron Grand Sport convertible, although specific numbers and details have not been released.

What's next from Bugatti? Reports in recent months suggest the Volkswagen sub-brand's Galibier concept is destined for production, bringing around 600kW to a four-door coupe package. Time will tell.
