Following the introduction of the Bugatti Veyron16.4 Grand Sport*) on the eve of this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, chassis No.one (to be built in Spring 2009) sold for $ 3.19 million at the Pebble Beach Auction presented by Gooding & Company.
The intense back and forth of the bidders for the highly sought after Grand Sport ended with a hammer price of $2.9 million (before buyer’s premium) bringing in $900,000 over the retail price of the car, all of which Bugatti will donate to the Pebble Beach Company Foundation charity.
The open-top Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, assembled by hand at the company’s headquarters in Molsheim, France will be available from March 2009 at the price of 1.4 million € (excluding tax, duties, transportation and PDI).
Just 150 examples will be made with the first 40 of these going exclusively to registered Bugatti customers.

The values were calculated using the prescribed measurement method (§ 2, numbers 5, 6, 6 per car energy labeling ordinance in its current version). CO2 emissions, which result from the production and provision of fuel or other energy sources are not taken into account in the determination of CO2 emissions pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC. The figures do not refer to a specific vehicle and are not part of the offer, but only serve the purpose of comparing different vehicle types. The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of a vehicle not only depend on the efficient utilization of the fuel by the vehicle, but also on driving style and other non-technical factors. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Notice pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC of each current valid version: For more information on official fuel consumption and the specific official CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be acquired from the "Guide for Fuel Economy, CO2 Emissions and Power Consumption of New Passenger Cars" available at all sales outlets and at DAT German Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Strasse 1, D-73760 Ostfildern – available free of charge or at www.dat.de. Efficiency classes of vehicles are evaluated in terms of CO2 emissions by means of the vehicle's empty weight. Vehicles that correspond to the average are classified as D. Vehicles that are better are graded with A+, A, B or C. Vehicles that are worse than the average are given an E, F or G.
