First Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Sells for $2.9 million

Earlier we gave you the knitty gritty details about the new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, and we also revealed the very first model was up for auction. We can now tell you this chassis number one has been sold by auctioneers Gooding & Co. for a grand total of $2.9 million. But don't take my word for it, thanks to WCF user Ecnel we can also bring you a video of the entire event.

Bugatti have already announced the official pricing of the Grand Sport will be €1.4 million euros excluding taxes which equates to just over $2 million, therefore a premium of just under $900,000 or around 45% doesn't actually sound that bad.

For more details you can see the unveiling article here, or perhaps check out the high resolution photo gallery here.

Kimbo, I can read, write, and think better than you ever will. Do you have ANY sense of how much $2.9 million is to the average person in the world? How much of that $2.9 million is going to charity? Why not just give that money directly to charity! And by the way, I'm pretty sure that Jeremy Clarkson doesn't like the Bugatti Veyron as much he "says" he does on television... he and other people with an appreciation for engineering know that this car is NOT an engineering achievment. I'd rather have a Porsche 911 than that fancy shopping cart with a jet engine! And another thing, feeling for the poor and having common sense does not mean one qualifies as a communist. In fact, a person with the traits that you yourself exhibit would be considered closer is closer to a communist. Whatever... it's not my money that has been squandered...

Despite of the fact there is a chance to get it for more than on prospective buyer this Buggy still looks to me far more exclusive than Pininfarinas chinese Rolls.

I rather buy Audi RS6 (by B&B). This car might kick this car ass!! $900,000?? Pathetic expensive. Waste your money. Porsche 911 for me. Still the best Super Car.

Do the people who buy these cars not have any heart at all? Can't they be satisfied enough with a Porsche 911 or even a Ferrari 699 GTB?? With all the poverty in the world, how can they be so unfeeling to spend THAT much on a car! And the car isn't even an engineering achievement! Nor is it a classic! Anyone can build an enormous engine to make a car go fast! This is no McLaren F1...

It looks wonderful, but I can't abide those alloys. It would look much better with a different or stock Veyron rim.
