Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Legend 'Jean Bugatti' revealed

Bugatti has unveiled its second Bugatti Legends car ahead of its public debut at this week’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

Like the first Legends edition, which was unveiled last month at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the new car is based on the 1183bhp Grand Sport Vitesse, and honors another great man who has shaped Bugatti’s history – Jean Bugatti.

Jean Bugatti was the oldest son of founder Ettore Bugatti. Jean was a great designer and one of his best known works is the Type 57SC Atlantic, one of the most expensive vehicles ever made.

The latest Bugatti Legends car is based on Jean’s personal Type 57SC La Voiture Noire (The Black Car).

The “Jean Bugatti” Legend model is finished entirely in black carbon fibre with the grille surround and EB badges made of platinum, a first for Bugatti. There is also designers signature in Arctic Gray on the petrol and oil caps.

Wheels are diamond cut with a twin five-spoke design.

Interior boasts a two-tone, brown-on-beige colour scheme and eye-catching embroidery on the doors and the cover of the rear storage compartment.

Like the Grand Sport Vitesse Legend “Jean-Pierre Wimille” that debuted last month, the Legend “Jean Bugatti” is limited to just three models, with each priced at 2.28 million euros plus taxes (£1.92 million).
