Bugatti released photos and details on a new special edition based on the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. We talk about the Jean-Pierre Wimille edition, a limited model which will be built in just 3 units.
As you probably figured it out, this model is dedicated to Jean-Pierre Wimille, a famous driver which managed to win the Le Mans 24 Hours race behind the steering wheel of a Bugatti in 1937 and 1939.
At the exterior, the sports car features a special two-color finish, reminiscent of the 57G Tank, the model which crossed first the finish line in 1937.
Inside, Bugatti offers the same color scheme while under the hood we find the stock 8.0-liter W16 engine producing 1,184 horsepower and 1,500Nm of torque. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h takes 2,6 seconds with a top speed of 408 km/h.
The company released no official pricing figures for the new model but expect a quite steep price tag considering the model’s exclusivity.
