The Bugatti Veyron is dead. The very last hand-assembled, quad-turbo W-16 engine has been built. The top speed runs have gone down in the history books—254.04 mph, a Guinness Book world record. The comparisons to newer, more exotic supercars from Italy and from Germany have all been conducted.
How could it not? Here was an engineering flight of fancy, a moonshot project blessed with unlimited funding and the permission to lose money on every superhero-powerful car produced by a team with the backing of the world's most powerful automotive conglomerate.
Astounding hypercars are still being built, but the Veyron, like the McLaren F1 that came more than a decade before it, is still the genre-defining übermachine.
