Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse 'Legend Jean-Pierre Wimille'
Bugatti is celebrating another milestone today after selling its 400th Veyron, meaning just fifty remain up for grabs.

The car, one of the three Jean-Pierre Wimille editions from the company’s ‘Les Legendes de Bugatti’ range, has gone to a lucky customer in the Middle East who had to part with €2.13 million to get his name on the log book.

Based on the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the special variant is finished in blue clear-coated carbon fibre and light Wimille Bleu paintwork as a nod to Wimille’s victorious Type 57G tank-bodied racer and features that elephantine 8.0-litre W16 from the 431 km/h Super Sport, which develops 895 kW (1,200 hp) and 1,500 Nm of torque, rather than the usual 746 kW (1,001 hp) and 1,250 Nm seen in the regular open-topped model.

“With the Veyron, Bugatti has established itself as the most exclusive and most luxurious super sports car brand in the world. The Veyron is a unique success story and sets a high standard for the future of Bugatti,” said the President of Bugatti Automobiles Dr Wolfgang Schreiber.
