Bugatti previously announced that it is to produce a limited run of six special edition Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse models, which will be known as the Legend Editions – commemorating six key figures in the company’s history. The model will be the latest in a long line of special edition Bugatti Veyrons.

This new special edition Veyron takes its inspiration from Jean Bugatti’s most famous creation - Type 57SC Atlantic. The Atlantic is one of the most expensive cars in the world, with the last one reportedly selling for more than 25million US dollars.

Under the skin, nothing has changed, with the same 1183bhp engine as the ‘standard’ model. After an unrestricted run at the Ehra-Lessien test facility in Germany, the Grand Sport Vitesse is now officially the fastest convertible money can buy – topping out at 254mph.

A number of special paint and trim changes have taken place, including bare black carbon fibre body panels, with badges on the front and rear finished in platinum. It also includes Jean Bugatti’s signature lasered into the petrol and oil caps. A Silhouette of the Bugatti Atlantic can also be seen on the car’s centre cubbyhole cover.

Limited to three vehicles, it will cost €2.28million euros (around £1.92million) plus taxes and other local charges.
