Bugatti hopes to sell between 1,000 and 1,500 units of the super-luxe sedan over the course of its lifetime, roughly triple the number of Veyron coupes and Grand Sport convertibles Bugatti built since 2004. We are taking into consideration various scenarios, from 500, to even 1,000 or 1,500 units produced, Dürheimer was quoted as saying by the aforementioned source.
