Rembrandt Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse debuts in Geneva

Bugatti has unveiled the fourth Legend Edition of the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, which honours Rembrandt Bugatti – brother of company founder Ettore Bugatti.

Rembrandt Bugatti wasn’t just a brother of Ettore, but also a very talented sculptor and is regarded as one of the most notable and artistically independent sculptors of the early 20th century. He became famous through his animal sculptures, and cast a large part of his work in bronze, which as you can see is the major theme of the Rembrandt Bugatti is a two-tone brown and bronze colour scheme.

The exterior features bronze clear-coated carbon fibre, with the lower part of the vehicle finished in a lighter brown, while platinum look is on the Bugatti horseshoe and EB logo at the rear.

The interior is finished with a light brown “Cognac” leather upholstery and elephant symbol on various places.

The Rembrandt Bugatti is the fourth of six limited Legend Edition models and is based on the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse roadster, following the already sold Jean-Pierre Wimillie, Jean Bugatti and Meo Costantini editions that debuted last year.

The Rembrandt Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is priced at 2.18M EUR (£1.8M) and limited to three units like previous Legend models.

Power comes from a 1183bhp 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16, enabling it to accelerate from 0-62mph in just 2.6 seconds all the way to a top speed of 255mph.

Two more Legend Editions will follow later this year, the last honouring the old man Ettore himself.
