It is a sign of the affluent times in which we live that Bugatti, have in the space of just two years managed to sell 220 Veyron supercars. Priced at $US1.4 million the Veyron is one of the world?s more expensive toys.
Currently, 132 examples of the 407km/h supercar have been delivered with another 88 more being on order, which leaves only 80 remaining from the supposed 300 unit production run.
Bugatti increased Veyron production last year to better meet demand, bringing the wait on a new one down to under 12 months...
Regular folk probably think the Veyron is individual enough but there is customer demand for tailor made Veyrons, which has resulted in the Bugatti offering an "individualisation programme".
Then of course there are the limited edition cars that are reported to rise significantly in value the moment the new owner takes the keys, in stark contrast to the average Commodore. The Veyron Pur Sang in its polished aluminium glory and the recently revealed Bugatti Veyron Fbg Hermes for some exclusivity.
The big question is, will Bugatti stop at just 300 Veyrons, or will they be tempted to let the good times continue to roll?
