Nearing 2014 Bugatti started to introduce the special edition models of the standard Veyron. These cars came with a W16 engine, which is two V8 engines together. These edition Bugattis can do the 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and have 1,200hp. These cars did not have sophisticated or hard names, but rather they were friends or family of Ettore Bugatti, Founder of Bugatti.
The names for all these special Bugattis are Jean-Pierre Wimille, Jean Bugatti, Meo Costantini, Rembrandt Bugatti, Black Bess, and Ettore Bugatti. Each one of these models were produced in only 3 units, totaling for 18 special edition Bugattis for the entire world.
Starting with the original family, Ettore Bugatti, Rembrandt Bugatti, and Jean Bugatti. Ettore Bugatti was the founder of Bugatti, so modern day Bugatti decided to honor him with his own car. This car has a blue and silver trim that makes it look futuristic. Rembrandt Bugatti was Ettore Bugatti’s brother and a world renowned sculptor, who was most famous for his sculptors of animals. Most famously, on an older Bugatti model, he sculpted an elephant, which became the new logo for the brand. The car in his name is covered in brown carbon fiber. Lastly, Jean Bugatti. Jean Bugatti was the eldest sibling in the Bugatti Family and helped Ettore Bugatti design some of his cars. His edition car is black.
Now for the next three, Jean-Pierre Wimille, Meo Costantini, and Black Bess. Jean-Pierre Wimille was an employee for Bugatti and was a factory test driver. He proved a skillful driver and would eventually win the first race for the brand at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1937. His car is blue and black. Meo Costantini was a friend of Bugatti and was the lead factory director. His car is blue and silver. Lastly, Black Bess was in honor of the first supercar that was ever made legal on the roads. This edition veyron is painted in black with gold highlights.
The Veyrons are quite special. As if a Bugatti was not interesting enough, now they added history to it. Though when this car came out, it was not cheap. It cost about a half million dollars more than the standard Bugatti Veyron. The Veyron editions are a unique way to tie history into a car.
