Bugatti Veryon Grand Sport selling at Pebble Beach a Bugatti setting auction record

It was a great weekend for the Bugatti models at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. And the first Veyron Grand Sport 16.4 Bugatti, debuted at the show, with a hammer cost of 2.9 million Dollars at the Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach auction. Although the ultimate cost will be confirmed at a later time, this could really mean that it's likely as much as 850,000 Dollars (the excess of the MSRP for Veyron) will be donated to charity - Pebble Beach Company Foundation.

The greatest changes for Veyron topless - stiffening that carbon fiber body modifying the windshield angle. The auto now includes also new LED headlamps, new alloy wheels plus a rear view camera. The total production for the Veyron Grand Sport is at 150 says Bugatti.

If Veyron Grand Sport was Bugatti to steal the hearts of everyone, then the Bugatti Type 57C Atalante Coupe 1939 stole the wallets. So the classic Bugatti is setting a brand new Pebble Beach record for Gooding & Company’s Saturday auction - 7.92 million Dollars. The vehicle is one of 95 57Cs made during the run that's from 1937 to 1940. The CC Supercharged Inline Eight-Cylinder Engine 3,257 is rated for 160 BHP At 5,000 RPM.
