Bugatti Veyron ‘Les Legendes de Bugatti': Jean Bugatti edition
Second in the special run of six Grand Sport Vitesses honours Ettore Bugatti's eldest son Jean, creater of the rather stunning 57SC Atlantic, which this car loosely references.
Again, no mechanical changes underneath - you won't mind with 1200bhp, a 0-62mph time of 2.6 seconds and top speed of 254mph - but you get platinium Bugatti horseshoe logos, clear-coated carbon fibre bodywork, black wheels with diamond cut edging, and Jean's signature lasered onto the petrol and oil caps.
Inside, the 57SC Atlantic's profile is embroidered on the door cards, and the colour scheme is a fetching beige and brown in keeping with that original car's history. There's also a rosewood gearstick. Nice.
