What the pics on these pages show you is yet another special edition of the might Bugatti Veyron. The latest limited-edition Veyron is called as the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse Jean-Pierre Wimille and we won’t be surprised to know if this is the longest name for any car on sale in the world.
Bugatti has announced that only three of these cars will be ever made the latest special edition model of the Veyron is the first of six “Bugatti Legends” exclusive editions that are coming our way. The first Legend model is dedicated to Jean-Pierre Wimille, two-time Le Mans 24 Hours winner, whose weapon of choice for these races was a Bugatti.
The latest special edition of the hypercar is based on the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and comes with a color scheme inspired from that of the Bugatti’s 1937 Le Mans-winning model- 57G Tank.
Powering the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse Jean-Pierre Wimille (try to say that in one breath!) is the same monstrous 8.0-liter W16 engine that powers the regular Grand Sport Vitesse (if at all you can use terms like regular for a Veyron). This engine has a max power of 1,200 PS and has 1,500 Nm of torque. The car can dismiss 100kmph from standstill in merely 2.6 seconds (!!) and has a top speed of 408.84 kmph. It may be noted that the Vitesse holds the official fastest production roadster in the world record.
The first car in the Bugatti Legend series will make its public debut at the U.S. Pebble Beach weekend on August 16.
