Bugatti Veyron ‘Les Legendes de Bugatti': ‘Ettore Bugatti' edition
It's the last in the 'Legends' line of Veyrons, and fittingly, it honours Bugatti's founder himself, Mr Ettore Bugatti.
As with all other Veyron Legends, the Ettore Veyron is based on the Grand Sport Vitesse, complete with that monster 8.0-litre W16 engine knocking out a very reasonable 1200bhp, a 0-62mph time of 2.6 seconds and a top speed of 254mph. It is of course, the world's fastest production roadster.
That's the inside, but what about the outside? The design, we're told, is inspired by Bugatti's Type 41 of 1932, with a ‘yin-yang' colour split. You'll notice that Bugatti has applied a clear-coated aluminium finish to the bonnet, the entire face, the wings, the doors and indeed, the wing mirrors.
The rear is finished in dark-blue exposed carbon, there are polished, diamond-cut wheels, platinum EB/Bugatti badging at the rear, natural brown calf's leather throughout the interior, alongside natural cordovan leather too. The tanning process for this, we're told, takes six months. Ooh.
Then there are the usual flourishes we've come to expect from these Veyron Legends: a platinum coated dancing elephant (not a real one, thankfully) inset in the cover of the rear centre box, and Ettore's own signature engraved into the tank and oil cap. Just in case you forget, y'know, which name adorns your €2.35 million hypercar.
Bugatti will build just three of these Ettore Veyrons, each costing £1.9 million.
