Bugatti unveiled their lasted addition to the many variations of the Buggatti Veyron at Pebble Peach on August 16th 2013. The Concours d’Elegance event showcased the newest Grand Sport Vitesse Jean-Pierre Wimille Legend Edition.
This particular car was modeled on the original Grand Sport Vitesse, which as everyone knows is obviously the convertible adaptation of the Grand Sport. Paying tribute to Jean-Pierre Wimille, winner of the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1937, the Bugatti is painted over in blue hues replicating the colors of his Bugatti Type 57G Tank racers. The two-tone color scheme is followed up with the interiors, which have contrast stitching. The gear lever and steering are exceptions in red, white and blue commending to Wimille’s nationality.
What makes the car even more unique is the signature of Wimille on the headrest, a silhouette of the Le Mans race circuit engraved into the aluminum center box and “Les Lengendes de Bugatti,” along with Wimille signature on a unique logo on the door sill plates.
This is the first of six-parts Legends edition, “Les Legendes de Bugatti,” that Buggati plans to launch to honor the renowned names that played a fundamental role is the history of the company and helped create the brand. The other six cars will be unveiled one by one over the span of the coming twelve months. Only three examples of each of the six cars are going to be for sale though the prices haven’t been revealed yet.
This Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse was brought out and placed next to the original Tank. The entire body of the car is made from carbon fiber instead of the hand beaten aluminum on Tank. The internals of the car remained unchanged as compared to the Grand Sport with 1,106 lb-ft of torque, quad-turbocharged 8.0L W16 good for 1,200hp with a seven-speed dual-Dutch automatic.
