Special edition Bugatti Veyron at Qatar

Bugatti pulls the wraps off another special edition Veyron Grand Sport supercar at the 2012 Qatar motor show

Bugatti grabbed plenty of attention at the 2012 Qatar motor show by showing its latest special edition Veyron Grand Sport. The latest unique Veyron’s striking yellow and black colour scheme is echoed in its glossy black wheels and yellow brake calipers, as well as the interior, where the seats, dashboard and centre console are all wrapped in lurid yellow leather. That colourful interior will be on display to passers-by too, as this is the world’s fastest convertible. The top speed is unchanged from the regular Grand Sport’s 252mph, as is the W16 quad-turbo engine’s prodigious 1001bhp power output. Bugatti Veyron production is approaching its end, with the last order for the coupe placed in June 2011. The order books stay open for the Grand Sport however, with 105 slots in the 150-strong production run still available. Special editions of the 1.4 million euro Grand Sport are intended to drum up interest in the Middle East, where the notion of an more exclusive (and expensive!) Veyron holds even more appeal. Incidentally, this black and yellow special edition costs 180,000 euros more than its base car (1.58m euros), but that’s hardly likely to be a decisive price difference to prospective owners. Click here for a gallery of every special edition Bugatti Veyron
