If there's an auto show with an affluent crowd, you can rest assure that Bugatti will pop up with a special edition version of one of its cars.
And by 'special edition', Bugatti usually means a different color combination, which is the case for its newest creation based on the open-top Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse that made it to this week's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in Monterey.
The one-of-a-kind Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse sports a unique Bianco and New Light Blue color scheme inspired by the fabled Type 37A that was built in 1928 and won a multitude of Grand Prix races in its time before it was acquired by Jay Leno.
The upper body of the car including the roof area and air scoops are finished in “Bianco”, while the lower panels (side skirts, front spoiler, radiator grille frame and rear apron with diffusor), the inner surfaces of the wheel rims and the underside of the automatically extending rear spoiler are colored in “New Light Blue.”
The interior of the special edition Bugatti is largely covered in Cognac leather with some hints of New Light Blue.
Power for the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse comes from a 7.9-liter W16 force-fed engine capable of delivering 1,184hp (1,200PS) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of peak torque allowing the car to reach 100km/h (62mph) in 2.6 seconds and a top speed of 410 km/h (255 mph).
This particular Vitesse on show in California costs €1.74 million or about US$2.15 million at the current exchange rates
