Bugatti Legends Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse Jean-Pierre Wimille Edition
As a tribute to Grand Prix racing’s most iconic figures, Bugatti has announced its six-part “Bugatti Legends” limited edition collection. All six designs from the Legends collection are based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grant Sport Vitesse, and the first is a tribute to historic Grand Prix Motor Racing driver and Bugatti’s own Jean-Pierre Wimille, who dominated two 24 Hours of Le Mans wins with Bugatti in 1937 and 1939. The car itself draws inspiration from these specific victories, borrowing design aesthetics from the Bugatti 57G Tank that Wimille drove in 1937, and is finished with a French signature blue clear-coated carbon fiber and light Wimille Bleu paintwork. Powered by an 8.0 liter, W16 quad-turbo engine and capable hitting 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds, the Jean-Pierre Wimille edition is a fitting tribute to the driving legend.
