Bugatti will make a Veyron in honour of famous racers
Bugatti will make a Veyron in honour of famous racers

Bugatti has presented a Targu Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse in a special Jean-Pierre Wimille edition. There will be six models in Les Légendes de Bugatti series, each one of which would be dedicated to a famous racer from the brand’s history. 

 Monstrous engine equipped with four turbochargers and the most complicated cooling system that exists today transmits traction with the 7-speed robotic transmission. With such a power unit, completed with all-wheel drive, Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.6 seconds. It’s really difficult to say how many special version were there based on Bugatti Veyron. But such fabulously expensive roadsters (a coupe version is not being produced since summer of 2011) need to be sold somehow, so at least another six special versions will be made in the nearest future, all of which for the Les Légendes de Bugatti series. Each model will be dedicated to the outstanding riders involved in the glorious past of the French brand. The first Veyron from this series is already made and is dedicated to a Vitesse Legend, Jean-Pierre Wimille. Jean-Pierre has won the 1937 and 1939 legendary “24 Hours of Le Mans” race as a Bugatti 57G Tank and 57C Tank pilot. So it is clear now why was this first model based on Bugatti 57G Tank body. 

New model has its doors, front truck lid, fenders and side mirrors painted in blue color called Light Wimille Bleu. Other exterior panels are made of lacquered dark blue carbon fiber and the interior has the same color scheme. 

As for thw technical characteristics of new Veyron with such long name, there aren’t any. In general, this is the same Grand Sport Vitesse that has recently set a speed record for two-seated open cars. This model managed to gain the 408.84 km/hour speed at the Era-Lessin track this April. Bugatti managers decided not to frighten potential buyers with scary prices just yet, but it was revealed that only three copies of special edition of Jean-Pierre Wimille will be built.
