Rarest Supercars In The World | The Rarest Veyron Jean Bugatti Edition

 

Bugatti Veyron Jean Bugatti Edition

Veyron Jean Bugatti Edition - $3.9 Million

Given that only 150 instances of the wild supercar would ever be produced, the concept of a "limited edition" Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse variant is somewhat absurd. In spite of this, Bugatti continues to create a number of customised or limited-edition variations, such as the 2013 Bugatti Veyron Jean Bugatti Legend Edition, which made its premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

This new Veyron is the second in the "Les Legendes de Bugatti" line of Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse cars, named in honour of Jean Bugatti, the eldest son of Bugatti founder Ettore Bugatti. The series, which will eventually include the Veyron Jean-Pierre Wimille model displayed at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, is intended to pay homage to significant personalities in Bugatti's history.

There is hardly much argument. In the business history of Bugatti, Jean Bugatti was a significant character. He started assisting with the design and engineering of Bugatti automobiles in the 1920s, beginning with the Type 41 Royale roadster. The Type 50, Type 55, and Type 57, notably the illustrious Type 57 Atlantic coupe, were also created by Jean. Although he practically took over the company in 1931, he didn't technically take over the automotive division of Bugatti until he was 27 years old in 1936. He tragically passed unexpectedly in a bizarre accident while testing the Type 57 C Tank, a vehicle that had just won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, at over 125 mph, ending his all too brief career.

The Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, which carries Jean Bugatti's name, is based on "La Voiture Noire," a black, turbocharged Type 57SC Atlantic that Jean previously owned and once drove. That car was more than just a personal vehicle, as Achim Anscheidt claims. Anscheidt said in a prepared statement that it was "his most spectacular work of art," combining "breathtakingly sporting dimensions with flowing, graceful lines."

The Veyron Jean Bugatti Legend Edition lacks paint and is only available in black. Instead, its black colour is a result of carbon fibre body panels that have been clearcoated. Both the big "EB" symbol on the back of the automobile and the distinctive horseshoe grille surround are made of platinum. Although Bugatti has previously employed some exotic materials as trim elements—need we remind you of the Veyron L'Or Blanc's ceramic interior?—the firm claims this is the first time it has added platinum d├ęcor to a Veyron. The diamond-turned wheels with black accents and Jean Bugatti's logo laser-etched onto both the gasoline and oil lids are additional distinctive features.

The interior of the Veyron Jean Bugatti Legend Edition is similarly based on La Voiture Noire. The automobile is totally covered in leather and has the same beige and brown colours as Jean's personal Type 57SC. Dark chocolate brown leather is used to trim the seats, centre console, door panels, and windshield header. A lighter "beige silk" hide is used to trim the extended centre console, outer door trim panels, and door handle recesses. Platinum is also used to create the EB emblem on the steering wheel, however this is scarcely the most distinctive aspect of the design. That distinction most likely belongs to the Type 57SC Atlantic's outline-impersonating embroidery that was applied to the inner door panels.

The Veyron Jean Bugatti Legend Edition is virtually mechanically identical to "regular" Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse cars, just like the other Legends-grade Veyrons. The 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged W-16 engine delivers 1200 horsepower and 1106 lb-ft of torque between 300 and 5000 rpm. The Veyron can go from 0-62 mph in 2.6 seconds with that kind of power. La Voiture Noire was never capable of such speeds, despite having a supercharger installed.

Only three instances of the Veyron Jean Bugatti Legend Edition will be produced, as is the case with each of the "Legends de Bugatti" automobiles. Pricing for the Bugatti Veyron Jean Bugatti Legend Edition in the United States has not yet been disclosed, however it is approximately $3 million before taxes in Europe.
