Bugatti Veyron 'Black Bess' edition revealed

Bugatti has unveiled its latest special edition model, the 'Black Bess' edition ahead of the Beijing motor show reveal.

Bugatti has launched the fifth special edition Veyron Vitesse model in the six-part ‘Legends of Bugatti’ series: the ‘Black Bess’. Named after the legendary Bugatti Type 18 ‘Black Bess’ model from 1913.

The Veyron Black Bess features a black paint-scheme with gold pin striping, black wheels, a cream interior as well as a red steering wheel – just like the original Black Bess. Originally driven by French aviation pioneer Roland Garros, the original Black Bess was named after the famous racehorse.

Like all of the other Legends models, it is based on the standard Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, which means it features the same 1183bhp engine as the ‘standard’ model. The Grand Sport Vitesse is still officially the fastest convertible money can buy – topping out at 254mph.

Limited to three units, like the rest of the Legends series, the Black Bess edition will cost £1.8million. The model will be on show at the Beijing motor show next week.
