Bugatti to team up with Bentley to build Rolls-Royce competitor

Bugatti is one of the most prestigious badges in the automotive industry. If one doesn’t have at least $3 million to throw around, then one shouldn’t even think of entering a Bugatti showroom. The first unit of the brands latest creation, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, sold for $3.19 million – exceeding the roadster’s sticker price of $2.05 million.

Only 150 units of the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport will be produced, 50 of which has already been sold to existing Bugatti customers who apparently have another $3 million to throw around. So what’s next for the exclusive luxury brand that caters to a very elite demographic?
