Set to be unveiled at Pebble Beach next week.
Bugatti has unveiled the sixth and final “Legends” series model dedicated to company founder Ettore Bugatti. Based on the 254-mph Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the unique design features clear-coated carbon and polished aluminum body panels, paying homage to the original 1932 Type 41 Royale. “Dedicated to Ettore Bugatti’s passion for the unusual,” the limited edition supercar comes with bespoke diamond cut alloys with EB’s signature engraved onto the fuel filler cap.
The cabin comes trimmed in two types of leather with blue exposed carbon accents, while a platinum-coated dancing elephant motif is yet another nod to the Type 41. The sculpture was originally crafted by Ettore’s brother Rembrandt Bugatti and features on the other five Legends models. As with others in the series, the Ettore Bugatti special edition is limited to three units, each priced at 2.35 million Euros. It will debut at Pebble Beach next week alongside its brethren: the Black Bess, Rembrandt Bugatti, Jean-Pierre Wimille, Meo Constantini, and Jean Bugatti.
Bugatti boss Wolfgang Dürheimer said: "Ettore Bugatti always strived for the creation of a total work of art. His ideas and vehicles set the foundation stone for an automobile brand that was lauded then and now as the most valuable in the world. Ettore Bugatti himself is a legend. It was clear from the start that we should dedicate the final Legends model to him personally."
