There are about 15 Bugatti Veyron supercars left unsold at the factory, out of the production cap of 450. Bugatti has been dressing up the remaining inventory to make these powerful cars more attractive to (ultra-wealthy) buyers.
Bugatti recently started a new line within the Veyron range called “Les Légendes de Bugatti”, which are fancier versions of the Veyron, usually commemorating something or someone. This line consists of 5 cars and Bugatti will unveil the 6th and last car in the series at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
This limited edition car, the Bugatti Veyron Legend Ettore Bugatti Edition, pays homage to the founder of the Bugatti brand. Only three cars are available with a price of €2.35 or about $3.6 million Canadian. This car is more expensive than Vancouver real estate!
The Ettore Bugatti Edition cars are designed to look like the 1932 Type 1 Royale, the paint scheme certainly is reminiscent of that car. The pain scheme consists of clear-coated hand polished aluminum finish on the front and doors, and blue carbon fiber on the sides and back. The interior is finished in luxurious tan leather and consists of few added badges that let the occupants know this isn’t “just any” Veyron.
If you’re not up to date with your Veyrons, here’s a quick rundown of the car’s stats. The Veyron is powered by an 8.0 liter turbocharged W16 engine, producing 1,184 horsepower (1,200 PS) and 1,106 pound-feet (1,500 Nm) of torque. The Veyron is able to sprint to 100 km/h in just 2.6 seconds with a ridiculously fast top speed of 408.84 km/h.
