Don’t worry, because Bugatti has a new one out that should give you more reason to part with $2.7 million.
This time around, Bugatti is paying homage to Rembrandt Bugatti, the brother of founder Ettore Bugatti and considered as one of the most famous sculptors of the 20th century.
The Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Rembrandt Bugatti Edition distinguishes itself with a bronze clear-coated carbon exterior — a tip of the hat to the preferred material Rembrandt Bugatti used in many of his sculptures. Just below it on the lower area of the car, a light brown shade was used to make the two-tone finish pop more than it already does.
This is a Veyron after all, and even the minimal attempts at "popping-out" the color can be construed as unnecessary, but for the price customers have to pay and the uber-limited nature of the supercar — it’s limited to three units — these types of things distinguish it from other Veyrons.
Aside from the colors, you might also notice that the Bugatti horseshoe and the EB logo on the back of the car were given a platinum look, and the oil cap features a laser etching of Rembradnt’s signature. Rounding out the exterior aesthetics of this Veyron are alloy wheels that have been painted in two shades of brown — "Firefinch" and "Light Noix" — visually complementing the rustic bronze color of the supercar.
Moving inside, Bugatti’s choice of leather for the cabin is a light brown "Cognac" leather upholstery with the dancing elephant ornament on the rear center box. Apparently, Rembrandt Bugatti loved sculpting elephants and this particular one was also used as the hood ornament for the Bugatti Type 41 Royale.
Other features of note on the interior include a platinum EB logo on the steering wheel, the same bronze clear-coated carbon finish on the center console and braided leather for the door trims.
With the arrival of the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, Bugatti’s Legends Series now adds up to four released models with only two left to be showcased at a later date.
