BUGATTI is concluding its “Les Légendes de Bugatti” family of special editions with the sixth member dedicated to company founder Ettore Bugatti.
In 2013, Bugatti announced that it would create six very special editions of the already very special Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.
As such, the Bugatti Legend “Ettore Bugatti” attempts to reflect the great man’s love of purity and of natural materials.
The exterior features hand-polished, clear-coated aluminum paneling and it will contrast against dark blue exposed carbon fiber.
Inside the cabin is wrapped in two tones of cordovan leather and a platinum coated dancing elephant emblem — a reference to the badge that Bugatti’s brother designed and which features on a number of early cars — takes pride of place between the driver and passenger seat.
As well as exquisite craftsmanship and extreme exclusivity, the car, like all Veyrons, is incredibly fast. A top speed of 409kph (254mph) and a 0-100kph time of 2.6 seconds makes it the fastest convertible in the world.
And, when it is unveiled at Pebble Beach on August 15, it will be alongside the other five Legends in the series.
