Bugatti has unveiled the second of six cars in its “Legend” series, this one honoring one-time head of Bugatti, and son of Ettore Bugatti, Gianoberto Carlo Rembrandt Ettore Bugatti, better known as Jean.
Bugatti has announced a special edition of its Veyron hypercar, honoring on of the automaker’s factory drivers and two-time Le Mans winner. The Bugatti Veyron Legend Jean-Pierre Wimille is the first in a series that honors the brand’s history with limited-edition models.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is the world’s fastest production convertible, with a speed record of 254.04 mile per hour set by entrepreneur and race driver Anthony Liu. It will be available as a World Record Car, limited to only eight examples worldwide.
Day one of the 2012 Geneva Motor Show is pretty much over. There was quite a bit of new and exciting sheemetal crossing the stages today, and we made sure to cover as much as we could. This is your spot if you happened to miss any of today’s Swiss stories. We’ll be updating this list as more cars are debuted on day two. Also, look for a finalized version of this list soon.
This is a car for the one percent of the one percent of the one percent. Essentially a topless Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, the Vitesse boasts the same 8.0-liter, 1200-horsepower, 16-cylinder, quad-turbocharged engine as the Super Sport. That car can hit 267 miles per hour (over a very long section of road). We expect the top-speed to fall somewhat with the removal of the roof (we can’t imagine traveling almost one-third the speed of sound without a roof is safe), though.
