Just when we were expecting a mightier and more powerful Veyron that could take the fight to beat SSC Aero TT’s top speed record (the Bugatti held it earlier), Bugatti has launched an updated version with better interiors and the trademark Blue colour named the Bleu Centenaire. The paint scheme is a mixture of Matte Blue and Gloss Blue.
So what does the Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire have in store for buyers?
- Bugatti Blue in gloss (Sprint Blue) and matte finish (Sprint Blue matt)
- Roof-trim and ORVM’s (outer rear view mirrors) made of polished aluminium
- New alloy wheel design with red brake calipers
- radiator grille meshing in reflective type paint
- Stunning Snowbeige colour leather
- LED Lights, Park Distance Control and rearview camera
Mechanically, the Bugatti Veyron Centenaire is exactly the same as the normal Veyron which means you get the same delightful 987bhp and 8.0l W16. Acceleration, top speed and dynamics remain unaltered.
|Building on the marque’s core values of « Art – Forme – Technique » , Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. has created the Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire, a unique model to celebrate the hundred year old history of the company. This special model takes up the traditional Bugatti two-tone-specification, but portrays it in one rather than two colours: in the most known light shaded Bugatti blue. The Centenaire’s unique combination of a « sprintblue matt » and « sprintblue gloss » hence offers a new impression of the two-tone-scheme known so far with parts of the engine also covered in this traditional Bugatti Blue.
The roof-trim-stripes and the exterior rearview mirrors are of polished, anodised aluminium. A special wheel design has been added – enhanced by a bright red brake-capillar. The grills at the front and at the side air intakes are in « mirror shine ».
The interior of the Centenaire is fitted in a special «snowbeige» leather with quilting on the seats. The central console is covered in the same leather. New LED lights, Park Distance Control and a rearview camera have become part of the standard equipment for all Bugatti Veyrons from this year onwards. The Bleu Centenaire shares all performance characteristics of other Veyron models performance-, acceleration- and deceleration characteristics which have been highly praised ever since the Bugatti Veyron first appeared on the scene. The car will cost 1,35 Million Euro exclusive taxes and transportation.
