Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Rembrandt: Geneva 2014

Bugatti unveils the latest Veyron special edition, dedicated to Rembrandt Bugatti. Details and live Geneva show pictures here

Unveiling the fourth car in its six-part Legends series, Bugatti has revealed it will be building three cars in tribute to its founder’s brother, Rembrandt Bugatti. The car has been shown for the first time at the 2014 Geneva motor show.

Labelled as ‘one of the most notable and artistically independent sculptors of the early 20th century,’ Rembrandt created detailed animal sculptures, with his often bronze coloured masterpieces now being on show in museums across the world.

The new car that bears his name is painted in bronze as a tribute, though the use of clear-coat allows the carbon bodywork to peer through. It also features his signature on the petrol and oil cap, whilst an image of his famous elephant sculpture is stamped on the centre box between the rear seats.

Aside from that, the car is essentially a standard Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. This means it possesses the same mammoth 1183bhp 8-litre W16 engine, propelling it to 62 in just 2.6secs and on to a top speed of 255mph. But with just three being made, the Rembrant badged Veyron is on sale for an eye-watering 2.18m Euros.
