Indeed the Veyron is a toy, a collectible and for sure there is nobody who buys a Bugatti just because he needs a car. The price of 1,000,000 Euros ex VAT suggests this clearly. And, by the way, Volkswagen lose more money with each car they sell since the Veyron's price doesn't even meet the costs of production, let alone the costs of development. After all the Veyron is more than simply a faster or more powerful vehicle. It is a masterpiece in engineering.
