Bugatti has unveiled the sixth special edition Veyron released as part of its Legends series. As the final car released in celebration of the marque’s illustrious history and key heroes, it bears the name of the company founder, Ettore Bugatti.
Featuring a clear-coated carbon and hand-polished aluminum body, the sixth Legends car harks back to the legendary Type 41 Bugatti. Adding to the exterior’s theatre is a set of bespoke colour coordinated diamond cut alloy wheels.

Inside, the Veyron Ettore Bugatti is laced with two types of leather (a first for the carmaker), and features exposed blue carbon accents and an aluminum coated dancing elephant motif – much like the fifth Legends car, the Vitesse Rembrandt.
Based on the Grand Vitesse, the Veyron Ettore Bugatti harnesses the same 1183bhp 8-litre W16 engine, enabling it to thrust from 0-62 in just 2.6secs and on to a top speed of 255mph. Just three will be produced, each commanding a mammoth £1.87million price tag.
The car will be presented to the public on 15 August at Pebble beach Concours d’Elegance, where it will sit alongside the five other members of the Legends series, Jean-Pierre Wimille, Meo Costantini, Black Bess, Jean Bugatti, Rembrandt Bugatti, Ettore Bugatti.
