The final Legend Edition series Bugatti Veyron has been unveiled as the Etttore Bugatti, which is named after the French firm’s founder. Like the five Legends models before it, only three will be produced.
Based on the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the Veyron Ettore Bugatti boasts a hand-polished aluminum and clear-coat carbon body to commemorate the legendary 1932 Type 41 Royale. The alloy wheels are also based on those of another Bugatti icon, the Type 35 racecar.
For the first time ever, the manufacturer used two types of leather in the Veyron’s upholstery. The first is the traditional calf’s leather in Brun Cavalier (brown), and the second natural cordovan leather. Another Legend Edition icon that’s been fitted to the Ettore Bugatti is the dancing elephant motif originally designed and sculpted by Ettore’s brother , Rembrandt.
The Veyron Ettore Bugatti boasts a price tag in excess of R33 million. It will be on display next week at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance alongside its special-edition brethren, the Jean Bugatti, Meo Constantini, Jean-Pierre Wilmille, Rembrand Bugatti and Black Bess.
