BUGATTI Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse | Black Bess Edition

Bugatti has taken the wraps off the fifth special edition Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse from its “Legends” series, this one paying tribute to the pre-war Type 18 “Black Bess,” at the time the fastest road-legal car. Powering the vehicle was an inline-four 5.0-liter engine, good for a top speed of 100 mph. This penultimate Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse “Legends” model, on the other hand, will carry the same power plant as an ordinary Veyron Vitesse, with the distinguishing characteristics reserved for the exterior and interior aesthetics. Limited to just three units, the car has a carbon fiber body painted in black with 24-carat gold accents, along with a cabin draped in light beige leather upholstery. In addition to gold inlays and a red steering wheel, the door panels feature illustrations of the Type 18 “Black Bess” and the Morane Saulnier Type H, an airplane belonging to Roland Garros, one of only seven people who bought the Black Bess. Bugatti will unveil the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse “Black Bess” starting April 20th at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show.
