Final Legends Edition Veyron, the "Ettore Bugatti" edition revealed

Last summer, Bugatti unveiled the Jean-Pierre Wimille edition, the first of a six series of special editions called Les Légendes de Bugatti. Shortly after ‘Jean Bugatti‘ was introduced, followed by Legend “Meo Costantini”, “Rembrandt” and “Black Bess” Legends Edition this April.

It was believed the sixth and final edition is dedicated to Elisabeth Junek – a female Czech racing driver from the 1920s, but despite different reports and even spy shots, the final Legend model is actually dedicated to Ettore Bugatti, the founder of the company.

Just like other “Les Legendes” series models, the final Ettore Bugatti edition is based on the Grand Sport Vitesse, powered by a 1183bhp 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16, enabling it to accelerate from 0-62mph in just 2.6 seconds, while the top speed is 255mph.

Just three cars will be built, each priced at 2.35M EUR (£1.86M).

The Ettore Bugatti edition features a clear-coated carbon and hand-polished aluminium blue body, paying homage to the 1932 Type 41 Royale. All this rides on colour-coordinated unique diamond-cut alloy wheels.

The signature of Ettore Bugatti is engraved into the tank and oil cap and painted in silver.

For the interior, Bugatti is using two types of leather for the first time combining natural brown (Brun Cavalier) throughout the vehicle interior, while those parts that are typically touched by hand like the steering wheel rim, gear lever, door handles, centre console armrest, door handle recesses and some of the switches are all finished in natural cordovan leather.

Bugatti will be presenting all six models of the Legends Edition on Friday, August 15 at “The Quail” and on Sunday, August 17 at the “Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance”.
