Following a teaser image released by Bugatti on the social networking site Facebook, the second of the Bugatti Legends has been officially unveiled. The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse ‘Jean Bugatti’ commemorates the eldest son of Ettore Bugatti, one of those responsible for shaping the Bugatti brand.
The latest Bugatti Legend references the Type 57SC Atlantic La Voiture Noire, the famous creation from Jean Bugatti and the car he drove himself.
The body of the Jean Bugatti is constructed entirely from naked carbon fibre and the horseshoe grille and Bugatti logo made from platinum. It features black diamond-cut alloy wheels and the signature of Jean Bugatti has been lasered onto the petrol and oil cap, which are both painted Arctic grey.
The interior is trimmed in the same brown and beige leather featured in the original Type 57SC Atlantic. The seats, centre console, instrument panel, dash panel, steering wheel, door trim panels and windscreen crossmember are all trimmed in chocolate brown. The silhouette of the Type 57SC is stitched into the door cards and rear storage compartment cover of the Bugatti Legend using contrasting beige silk thread.
Like the first the Bugatti Legend, the Jean-Pierre Wimile Veyron, this second Bugatti Legend will use the same 1184bhp 8.0-litre W16 engine, used in the 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. Just three of each special edition will be built.
