If you were hoping to snag one of the coolest-looking cars ever made, you’re now out of luck. That is, unless, you find one of the 450 Bugatti Veyron owners willing to part with their super-exclusive automobile.

Volkswagen AG just sold the 450th and last of the high-end Bugatti roadsters, according to Bloomberg. The final Veyron, sold last weekend, is an open-top model and is called “La Finale.” It has 1,200 horsepower and will be shown next week at the Geneva Motor Show.

All told, the Veyron sold sat an average cost of 2.3 million euros each ($2.6 million). The final car was sold to a customer in the Middle East, but around half of the Veyrons were sold in Europe, while a quarter went to the United States.

Volkswagen purchased the Bugatti brand, a classic French sports car manufacturer, in 1998. The Super Sport model is considered the fastest street-legal production car in the world, per the Guinness Book of World Records.
