Bugatti is set to unveil the first special-edition model from the six-part “Bugatti Legends” collection, one that uses the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse to celebrate the men that shaped its history. The vehicle is dedicated to Jean-Pierre Wimille, winner of two Bugatti victories at the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans. The winning car from 1937 is the inspiration for the design of the Bugatti Legend “Jean-Pierre Wimille” Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, its clear-coated carbon fiber exterior finished in a light Wimille Bleu paint color. No changes were made under the hood, meaning the output from the quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 remains at 1,184 horsepower and 1,106 pound-feet of torque. The 0 – 62 mph sprint time takes 2.6 seconds, with a top speed limited to 233 mph. (We know, however, that it’s capable of hitting 254 mph with the top down, making it the fastest production roadster in the world.) Limited to just three units, this first Bugatti Legend debuts at Pebble Beach in August, with the following five individual editions to arrive over the next twelve months.
