Recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records, the Bugatti Veyron is the fastest street-legal production car in the entire world. For many, the Veyron is the ultimate supercar: it’s blistering fast, extremely luxurious, expensive, and it looks really good. Developed by Volkswagen and produced by Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. in France, the Veyron has been the king of supercars ever since it first came out in 2005. Unfortunately the last Veyron that was ever made was debuted at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show recently. In total, 450 Veyrons were produced and they came in many different flavors and versions. So we are going to look at the top ten Bugatti Veyron models of all time.

10. The FBG Par Hermes Veyron
This particular Veyron was produced in 2008 in collaboration with the fashion label Hermes. The car was obviously extremely luxurious and stylish, and it was a favorite at the time. This Veyron featured new eight-spoked wheels withe the Hermes “H” in the center. The grille of the Veyron was made from many H’s and this Veyron had a price tag of $2.3 million making it a bit more than the standard version.

9. The Black Bess Legends Edition Veyron
This modified Grand Sport Vitesse Veyron was unveiled in 2014 as part of Buggati’s “Legends Edition” series. This Veyron took design influences from the Bugatti Type 18 Black Bess of yesteryear, and is certainly an attractive vehicle. Aside from the design, this Veyron has a 8.0 liter W16 engine that produced a crazy 1,184hp. Only three of these Black Bess Veyron’s were produced and they were priced at nearly $3 million dollars.

8. The Veyron Bleu Centenaire
Released in 2009 to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the brand, this Bugatti is another one of our favorite models. This model was based on the first Veyron’s that came out in 2005. While this particular version wasn’t anymore powerful than the other Veyrons of the time, Bugatti managed to shave off 200 pounds of extra weight from this model so it performed a whole lot better. The exterior features matte-blue paint with white detail work and the interior is made from snow-colored leather.

1. The World Record Edition
As the name somewhat suggests, the World Record Edition Veyron is the fastest Veyron that Bugatti has ever made and the fastest production car of all time, which is why we have it at number one. Based on the Super Sport Veyron, Bugatti only produced just five of these amazing vehicles. For a long time it was the fastest car in terms of acceleration, only recently to be beat out by the Porsche 918 and the LaFerrari. The car can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 2.4 seconds and has a top speed of 267.8mph which means it is still the fastest street legal production car that has ever been made in terms of top speed.
