What this is, is a special edition version of the regular Bugatti Veyron Vitesse. It is made to celebrate a new world record the company has just bagged. The record happens to be a Veyron Vitesse driven by Chinese driver Anthony Liu who managed to hit a top speed of 252.04mph (408.84km/h). He drove the Veyron around VW’s track at Ehra-Lessien.

Exterior wise, the WRC edition sports a new orange and black dual paint scheme. It also has a specially developed roof spoiler to provide better stability at higher speeds.
