The company has announced that the special edition is based on the Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse that harnesses power from a 8.0-liter W16 engine, producing 1,200 hp and 1,500 Nm of peak torque.
Mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, the car will get from 0-100 kph in 2.6 seconds, eventually to a top speed of 408.84 kph with the roof down.
Typically, Bugatti’s special editions pay homage to some of the erstwhile members of the company. The previous three models sought to honor Meo Constantini – a racing driver and once the Sporting Director of Bugatti – Jean-Pierre Wimille – A French racing driver with two Le Mans wins under his belt – and Jean Bugatti – third son of the founder Ettore Bugatti.
Three models of each special edition were made and all nine models have been sold out so far, Bugatti confirmed. Each of the special edition models cost $3 million (Rs 18,52,50,000).
