Even if the planned run of 300 Bugatti Veyron coupes ensures that every car will be special, Bugatti still likes to make special editions. But unlike some that are only about appearance, the four cars its brining to Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza in Italy are about celebrating history.
They are called the Bugatti Veyron Centenaire Edition. Each pays tribute to the Pre-WWII Type 35 Grand Prix racers and their drivers. The cars are mechanically similar to a standard Veyron, but it combines polished aluminum wings and doors with a driver’s corresponding national racing color — Jean-Pierre (France - blue), Achille Varzi (Italy - red), Malcolm Campbell (England - green) and Hermann Zu Leininger (Germany - white).
These limited edition cars also include special LED lighting and a special badging featuring the name of the selected race driver. There is no word yet on how limited this special edition will be, but expect to shell out €1.6 million (currently about $2.08 million) per example — about €400,000 more than a “standard” Veyron.
