Over the course of 10 years, Bugatti built 450 units of its powerful Veyron, 300 coupes, and 150 roadsters. Among these 450 units and between these 10 years (2005-2015), Bugatti built dozens of special Editions based on the Veyron, here we picked up 5 with a true meaning behind them, and not only a color scheme different than the usual with a bespoke interior. Let’s to the list.
5- Bugatti Veyron 16.4 L’Edition Centenaire
The Bugatti Centenaire Villa d’Este Limited edition is an homage to the golden age of motorsport in the first half of the last century. As such, it’s clearly reminiscent of the historic Bugatti Type 35 thoroughbred racing car.
Based on the 1001hp Bugatti Veyron 16.4, L’Edition Centenaire is limited in just 4 units, each one with a unique finish which symbolizes one of the great European racing nations of the 1920s, as well as pays tribute to four drivers of the Bugatti history. They are Jean-Pierre Wimille from France (Blue finish), Achille Varzi from Italy (Dark Red finish), Malcolm Campbell from United Kingdom (Dark Green finish) and Hermann Zu Leiningen from Germany (Beige finish).
4- Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Bleu Centenaire
Such as L’Edition Centenaire, Bleu Centenaire is also based on the 1001hp Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Coupé. This special model takes up the traditional Bugatti two-tone-specification, but, instead of two distinct colors, the Centenaire is a unique combination of a “sprintblue matt” and “sprintblue gloss”.
Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S created just one of the Bleu Centenaire and, as the name suggests, this special edition celebrates the hundred-year-old history of the company.
3- Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car (WRC)
The Bugatti Veyron Vitesse is, basically, an open top version of the Veyron SS. With its 8.0-liter quad turbocharged W16 engine developing 1200 hp, the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse could reach an amazing top speed and be the fastest roadster in the world.
On April 11, 2013, Bugatti took its Vitesse to VW’s 12-mile ring in Ehra-Lessien, Germany, and with the top down achieved a top speed of 408.84 km/h (254.04 mph) becoming officially the World’s Fastest Open-Top Production Car.
To celebrate the title of the fastest roadster in the world, Bugatti created the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car (WRC) — by the way, this was the car that set the speed record at that day–, a two-tone orange and black colorings limited in just eight units.
2- Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition (WRE)
As everybody knows, the Bugatti Veyron SS is the current World’s Fastest Production Car with a top speed of 431.072 km/h (267.856 mph). The Veyron SS WRE is an exposed carbon fiber with orange details special edition limited to just 5 units in commemoration to the speed record broken.
1- Les Légendes De Bugatti
The first place is not just a special edition, but a special series instead. Bugatti has a rich history and with the Bugatti Legends, the French luxury marque celebrates some heroes (legends) who helped to make its history as great as we know today.
Les Légendes de Bugatti honors Six legends in the history of Bugatti, and each one of this six legends are limited in just 3 cars which are based on the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse.
They are: Jean-Pierre Wimille Legend Edition in two-tone blue based on Type 57 G tank honoring the French driver Jean-Pierre Wimille; Jean Bugatti Legend Edition completely in black based on Type 57 SC Atlantic paying tribute to Jean Bugatti, the oldest son of Bugatti’s founder Ettore Bugatti; Meo Costantini Legend Edition with a blue and aluminium color scheme, inspired by Type 35, homages the Italian aviator and racing car drive Meo Costantini; Rembrandt Bugatti Legend Edition in bronze and brown pays tribute to the Italian sculptor and Ettore Bugatti’s younger brother Rembrandt Bugatti; Black Bless Legend Edition completely in black with 24-carat gold accents honors and is inspired by Type 18 “Black Bess”; The last legend is in tribute to the company founder and automotive pioneer Ettore Bugatti. Inspired by Type 41 Royale it has a hand polished aluminium and dark blue color scheme.
In addition to these 5, it is worth mentioning the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse La Finale which marked the end of Veyron. This is it, this is our pick for the “Top 5 Bugatti Veyron Special Editions”. Do you agree with our list? or is there another one you put on this list too? Leave your comment.
