Although it wouldn’;t be honest to say it stumbled on it, possessing invested unprecedented quantities to develop the Veyron in the first place, Bugatti has undoubtedly arrived at a winning formula with its special editions. Take on the world’;s most expensive and desirable supercars, give it a particular paintjob and name, and presto! You have received a multi-million-dollar prospect on your hands of which collectors just can’;t look to get ample.
If that was the case with earlier special-edition and one-off versions of the Veyron – and there have been several – it certainly applies to the company’;s “Les Legendes de Bugatti” line. The series pays homage to 6 legendary figures from the marque’;s historical past, every single honored with a run of 3 particular versions of the Vitesse roadster accomplished up in their name with a distinctive color scheme within and out. It started with the Jean-Pierre Wimille edition at Pebble Seashore in August and continued with the Jean Bugatti edition in Frankfurt, the Meo Costantini edition in Dubai and the Rembrandt edition (pictured over) at the Geneva Motor Show last week. That leaves 2 much more to go, and now we now what to anticipate – or rather, when to anticipate it.
In correspondence with Autoblog, Bugatti confirmed that it will reveal the fifth model at the Beijing Motor Demonstrate subsequent month, and the sixth and final edition at Pebble Seaside in August. But just what will they be? All indicators look to be pointing toward pioneered female racer Elisabeth Junek for one particular of them – very likely the up coming – but if we had to guess, we’;d suspect that the final edition will honor Ettore Bugatti himself. We’;ll just have to wait to discover out for confident, but whoever Bugatti names them after, you can bet they’;ll all sell out rather speedily.
