The French manufacturer of luxury high performance cars, Bugatti has finally released the sixth and latest model in its acclaimed mega series Les Légendes de Bugatti. This beautiful special version of Veyron is especially dedicated to someone really important for the company and that is its founder, Ettore Bugatti.
The ultra-exclusive Bugatti Veyron Ettore Bugatti was presented at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, along with the other five vehicles that make up this amazing series: first we have the Black Bess model, then follows the Rembrandt Bugatti, after that comes Jean-Pierre Wimille while the last ones were Meo Constantini and Jean Bugatti. This year, the world premiere of the sixth Legend of the company was held at the same location of the previous model.
The Ettore Bugatti Veyron design was modeled on Type 41 Royale, one of the finest creations of Bugatti. From the chassis (No. 41111), to the outer two-tone paint, Bugatti’s tribute to Type 41 has been a total success. Bugatti used cargalvanized aluminum for front and side panels of its mega car, including the hood, bases and mirror caps, the exterior door handles, the corners of the bumpers, fenders and doors. In fact, this is a first for the brand to do a such thing.
For the interior, two types of leather are being used for the first time too, which are combined with carbon accessories in blue and exposed a pattern, the aluminum figure of a dancing elephant – another tribute to the Type 41 Royale. The figure, which is also present in the other 5 special editions of the Bugatti was actually sculpted by Rembrandt Bugatti, Ettore’s brother, an artist with an inclination to represent wildlife in his works.
The Ettore Bugatti has the powerful Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse as its base model, meaning that it is powered by a powerful engine W16 8l, capable of producing 1,184 horsepower and 1,500 Nm of torque. The new model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h (62 mph) in 2.6 seconds. The Grand Sport Vitesse legend has a top speed of 408.84 km / h (254 mph) that is of course with the roof down, earning the title of the fastest production roadster in the world.
The price of the latest model of Bugatti which, like the rest of the Legends, is limited to three units is € 2.35 million (approx. $ 3.14 million).
