This already exclusive variant is made even rarer courtesy of exposed carbon fiber bodywork.
When discussing automotive icons of the past two decades, the Bugatti Chiron and its predecessor, the Veyron, are certainly up there as engineering feats. First seen in 2005, the Veyron is still one of the world's fastest cars, courtesy of the awe-inspiring 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged W16 motor. This didn't stop the high-end carmaker from bestowing several enhancements over the years, culminating in the exquisite Grand Sport and ultimately, the Grand Sport Vitesse.
The open-topped variant is a truly special car and, as such, commands big money. An exquisitely finished example has just rolled onto the high-end vehicle market, offered by Romans International. Already a rare vehicle, this particular variant is even more exclusive. Of the 450 Veyrons ever produced, just 92 are believed to be the Grand Sport Vitesse. This 2015 model is said to be even more exclusive, sporting the desirable exposed carbon fiber exterior.
At first glance, the Grand Sport Vitesse appears to be painted in a glossy black but, upon closer inspection, the two-tone blue/black exposed carbon fiber shines beautifully. While there's nothing subtle about a Veyron, this one comes rather close. That's not to say it's a shrinking violet. The black-painted alloy wheels, while demure, hide a set of blue brake calipers.
If that's still not enough for you, the vividly-trimmed interior will certainly pique your interest. The conservative may shy away from an orange interior but, when applied to this carbon fiber goddess, it works exceptionally well. The dashboard and center console gain a more sensible color, livened up by the piano black trim inlays. A classy analog clock takes pride of place, positioned above the air vents.
With just 4,027 kilometers (2,502 miles) recorded on the odometer, this very special Veyron has covered an average of just 357 miles a year since new. With the low mileage, desirable body style, and extremely rare spec, we won't be surprised if this particular example sells for millions. Sadly, we don't know what it's listed at; Roman's currently as it advertised as POA (price on application). Still, we're guessing many collectors would do just about anything to get their hands on this 1,184-horsepower beauty.
This elegant hypercar isn't the only irresistible Bugatti to come up for sale in recent weeks. Musician Post Malone decided to sell his white-on-white Chiron with just 583 miles on the clock. While both will certainly exchange hands for a pretty penny, they're veritable bargains compared to what people are asking for the special Centodieci. In fact, one Tokyo dealer listed the build slot for $14 million. Insanity.
