Bugatti Veyron ‘Les Legendes de Bugatti': ‘Rembrandt' edition
This is the fourth model in the company's six-part paint-and-trim Legends series, and this time it's a tribute to the company founder's brother, Rembrandt Bugatti.
While Ettore was messing around in the garage, his brother was hanging around Antwerp Zoo, where he sculpted exotic animals like elephants, panthers and lions. Seen the dancing bronze elephant on the radiator cap of a Type 41 Royale? That's his work.
Said dancing elephant is the reason why the car has bronze-coloured clear-coated carbon bodywork. There's also Rembrandt's signature lasered on the petrol and oil cap, and the elephant's also stamped into the centre box between the rear seats.
Otherwise, it's a cooking-variety Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. That means an 8.0-litre W16 engine making 1200bhp, which gets it from 0-62mph in 2.6 seconds.
Yours for €2.18m...
