Bugatti Veyron's Grand Sport Vitesse Ettore edition
Unveiled at the 2014 Monterey Car Week
The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Ettore Bugatti Edition is named after the car company's patron Ettore Bugatti, and is based on the 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse – the same W16 engine that powers it from 0-60 in 2.6 seconds, with a top speed of 254 mph.
"Ettore Bugatti always strived for the creation of a total work of art. His ideas and vehicles set the foundation stone for an automobile brand that was lauded then and now as the most valuable in the world," said Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.
Unique touches on this sleek edition include hand-polished, clear-coated aluminum on the hood, front, side panels, and mirrors, while dark-blue carbon fibre panels are used on the rest.
Based on one of the most famous wheel rim designs in automotive history, the diamond-cut rims were specially created for the Ettore and are color-coordinated with a dark-blue finish.
Inside, the interior holds both traditional calf and natural cordovan leather and a platinum-coated dancing elephant on the rear center box that resembles the one used as the hood ornament of Ettore's favoured Type 41 Royale in 1926.
