Bugatti continues to pay tribute to legendary figures in their history with another special edition Veyron, which is the third of the six part series. While the first paid tribute to Jean-Pierre Wimille and the second remembered Jean Bugatti, the third recalls the impact that Meo Constantini had on the luxury car brand. Constantini is most remembered for his time racing Bugattis in the 1920s before going on to manage the factory racing team. His two victories behind the wheel of a Bugatti Type 35 at the Targa Florio have gone down in history as one of the most successful racing pairings in history, which were also topped off with several grand prix victories. Like the previous tribute models, the Constantini is based on the Vitesse roadster with its 1,200 hp, 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W16 engine that earns a 2.6-second 0-62 time and a 253-mile-per-hour top speed. Its exterior sees a mix of French Racing blue for the carbon fiber while the aluminum is left exposed, but polished and clear-coated. The map of the Targa Florio route is painted beneath the rear wing and is also imprinted in between the seats, while Costantini's signature is etched into the fuel cap and embroidered into the headrests. Not satisfied to end there, Bugatti also coated the interior with cognac and dark blue leather with light blue stitching with racing scenes laser-etched into the leather. The Costantini edition is up for sale at €2.09 million,
