Bugatti has revealed the Meo Constantine, the third in its new line of ‘Heroes of Bugatti‘ Veyron Grand Sport Vitesses, at the 2013 Dubai motor show.
This particular model celebrates the life of Bartolomeo ‘Meo’ Costantini, a close friend of company founder Ettore Bugatti, and head of the race team for eight years. Constantine won the Targa Florio two times, behind the wheel of a Bugatti Type 35.

Something new for the Vitesse is the polished aluminium on the front and sides of the car, paying homage to the race-winning Type 35. The outline of the Targa Florio course is painted on the bottom of the rear wing, as well as appearing in the interior of the car.
Constantine’s signature is also laser engraved into the fuel and oil caps. There are also some unique door panels inside, which feature laser engraved images of racing scenes from the racer’s life.
Like the other Legends models just three will be produced, and at €2.09m (about £1.75m) before taxes, it carries a hefty premium over the standard Vitesse.
