Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport

Bugatti announced pricing on the 2009 Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport. The supercar will go on sale in March 2009 at a price of 1.4 million Euros ($2 million), which was in line with what was expected. It will be limited to only 150 units, with the first 50 of these going exclusively to registered Bugatti customers.

When the roof is closed, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport can match the fixed roof car’s 253 mph top speed, while speeds of up to 223 mph are possible with the targa-type roof off. Should it rain, there is a lightweight temporary roof can be opened up like an umbrella at any time. When this folding roof is in place, the car cannot go above 80 mph.

The first Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport was sold at the Pebble Beach Auction for $2.9 million ($3.19 million after auction fees.)
