The Meo Constantini edition features a two-tone exterior, with he body primarily constructed of carbon fibre.

The wings, doors, the parts behind the doors and corners of the front bumper are rendered in aluminium, while the rest of the body is finished in a blue paintwork.

The silhouette of the historic Targa Florio race course is painted on the underside of the rear wing in “Bugatti Dark Blue Sport.”
