Feature Flick: How to Build the Bugatti Veyron La Finale
Watch the end of an era being built.
With the final Bugatti Veyron out of the factory and on its way to a new owner, an era comes to a close. The Bugatti Veyron left an indelible mark on the automotive landscape, a technological marvel that, as a whole package, has yet to be eclipsed. To give the Veyron the sendoff it so desperately deserves, Bugatti released a special edition Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse called the La Finale, commemorating the 450th and final model sold. To give fans a peek behind what it takes to build the La Finale, Bugatti produced this video following the progress of the La Finale as it moved through the spotless Bugatti workshop in Molsheim, France.
The video begins with the La Finale as a bare chassis with bolted-on components, with a group of mechanics and technicians mating the multiple subframes with into one cohesive unit. We are treated to close-up shots of the Veyron's 1200-hp, 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine and 7-speed dual-clutch transmission exposed for all to see, before they are bolted to the main monocoque.
The Bugatti Veyron La Finale is then hand-assembled with an assortment of polished carbon fiber body trim pieces, lovingly fixed to the bare carbon fiber chassis. The Bugatti Veyron La Finale caries a deep, garnet-red hue, with exposed carbon fiber body panels. Final touches, including interior construction and final polishing are then carried out, along with inspection.
Take a look at the video below, and enjoy the final Bugatti Veyron before we get more information on its eventual successor, the Chiron.
