Geneva Motor Show: Bugatti's 4th Legend Edition
Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Rembrandt Bugatti
Bugatti has unveiled its 4th Special Edition model—Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Rembrandt Bugatti—at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show. This Special Edition honors Rembrandt Bugatti, known commonly as Rembrandt, a very notable and artistically independent sculptor of the early 20th century.
The company has announced that the special edition is based on the Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse that harnesses power from an 8 litre W16 engine, producing 1,200 hp and 1,500 Nm of peak torque.
Mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, the car will get from 0-100 km/h in 2.6 seconds, eventually to a top speed of 408.84 km/h with the roof down.
Bugatti’s Legend Editions
Typically, Bugatti’s special editions pay homage to some of the erstwhile members of the company. The previous three models sought to honor Meo Constantini, a racing driver and once the Sporting Director of Bugatti; Jean-Pierre Wimille, a French racing driver with two Le Mans wins under his belt; and Jean Bugatti, third son of the founder Ettore Bugatti.
Three models of each special edition were made and all nine models have been already sold out, Bugatti confirmed. Each of the special edition models cost $3 million (Rs 18.45 crore approx).
