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.
