Eight Veyron still up for grabs, says Bugatti President

Snapshot: Bugatti planned to sell 450 cars and will bring the new car in 2015.

Are you in the market looking for a new car and have lots of money and we mean seriously a lot of money? The good news for you guys is that, still eight Bugatti Veyrons are up for grabs, which was capped to 450 units. This means Bugatti has not been able to sell all the 450 units since its inception in 2005. Bugatti's president Wolfgang Dürheimer disclosed while shedding some light on the company's upcoming plans.

In an interview given to CAR, Durheimer said that they are not finished selling up all the eight cars and will be revealing some special edition to sell the remaining units. Produced at the Bugatti's factory in Molsheim, eastern France, the car will be out of production by 2015, once all the units are sold and the company will immediately start producing Veyron's successor, allegedly named Chiron.

In a rather surprising move, Bugatti's president went on to specify "there's one crazy American that wants to beat us", clearly referring to Hennessey, who was recently in news to beat the Bugatti Veyron and become the fastest car in the world. Their upcoming Venom F5 will allegedly pack more than 1400 bhp of power which will enable the car to touch a top speed of 466.71 km/h. Dürheimer said "we will have to do our homework and get prepared for the future."

It will be interesting to see what special edition Bugatti will launch to sell the remaining eight cars and how will Chiron tackle the competition from Hennessey Venom.
