Following the Jean Bugatti and Jean-Pierre Wimille special editions, the Legend “Meo Costantini” special edition is also based on the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, packing a 1183bhp 8.0-litre W16 quad-turbo engine with 1,500 Nm of torque, good for a 0-62mph sprint in 2.6 seconds, while the top speed is 253 mph (408 km/h).

Meo Costantini who was a close friend of the Ettore Bugatti, was also head of the Bugatti factory race team for several years and won the Targa Florio twice in a Type 35.

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.”

Meo Constantini’s signature is laser-engraved into the aluminium tank and oil caps and painted in silver.

The special Meo Constantini edition will be limited to three units and is priced at 2.09M EUR (£1,75M) plus tax.
