Visually, the limited-edition Veyron Ettore Bugatti stands out from the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse on which it’s based thanks to a two-tone livery inspired by the Type 41 that wears chassis number 41111. The hood, the fenders, parts of the front bumper and the doors are crafted out of clear-coated hand-polished aluminum, while the rear end’s bodywork is built with dark blue-tinted carbon. Ettore Bugatti’s signature is engraved in the gas cap, and model-specific diamond-cut eight-spoke wheels finish off the look.
The interior is upholstered in two types of brown leather, marking a first for the storied firm. Blue carbon fiber trim on the door panels creates a visual connection with the car’s exterior design, and the cockpit boasts a large, platinum-coated rendition of Bugatti’s famous dancing elephant logo between the seats.
Bugatti has not made any mechanical modifications, meaning the limited-edition Veyron is powered by an 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine that generates 1,183 horsepower and 1,106 pound-feet of torque. The massive engine sends the Veyron from zero to 62 mph in 2.6 seconds and on to a top speed of 254 mph, making it the fastest convertible ever built.
Like the previous members of the highly-exclusive “Les Légendes de Bugatti” family, the Ettore Bugatti edition will be limited to just three examples worldwide. Each one will cost a lofty €2.35 million, a sum that converts to approximately $3.1 million.
The Veyron Legend Ettore Bugatti Edition will greet the public for the first time on August 15th at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. All six limited-edition “Les Légendes de Bugatti” models will be gathered together at the show for the first time ever.
