As a line of cars launched from about 20 years, Bugatti Veyron owns a “no age” design along with many years of maintaining the title “King of speed”. The car is named after racer Pierre Veyron who won the 1930 Geneva Grand Prix race with the Bugatti Type 37A. During its 10-year life cycle since the production line was launched in 2005, Veyron has never let car enthusiasts down with cars of high artistic value, along with that is performance outperformed models of that time.
Based on the Veyron version, there are many different versions developed to mark the memorable milestones of the company as well as “please” fastidious customers. In 2013, the last years before the production line of Veyron was stopped, instead of the Bugatti Chiron, the French car brand decided to launch a collection inspired by influencers as well as direct dedication to the formation and development of the Bugatti brand. The collection was launched with 6 models bearing the meaning of gratitude to the legends, one of which is the Veyron Legends Edition – Jean-Pierre Wimille.
Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Jean-Pierre Wimille was developed on the prototype Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse with a limited number of only 3 units worldwide. This version wears Wimille Blue paint combined with dark blue carbon materials gleaming blue. This is a two-tone combination inspired by the French racing car Bugatti 57G Tank. With this car itself, Jean-Pierre Wimille won the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1937.
The rear spoiler of the car as well as the car sculpture board are drawn to mimic the Le Mans track map to recall Wimille’s glorious victory. Accompanying it is his signature on the fuel cap on the side of the car.
The interior compartment of Veyron Vitesse Jean-Pierre Wimille is also coordinated with two similar colors to the exterior with the main light blue leather. The seat backrests are embroidered with his signature and the carbon-material Le Mans racetrack. The steering wheel as well as the gear lever are embroidered with only 3 blue-white-red colors, resembling the French flag color. It can be said that this is a small but meaningful detail and hides the sophistication as well as demonstrates the high skill and long experience of the French carmaker Bugatti.
This Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Jean-Pierre Wimille still uses a massive 8.0-liter W16 engine with four turbochargers. This engine produces a maximum capacity of 1,200 hp and 1,500 Nm of torque. This power helps the convertible car accelerate 0-100 km / h in 2.5 seconds and the maximum speed is limited to 415 km / h.
Currently, the car is for sale at a private dealer in the US. The car just operated on the 1786km and is very new. At $ 2.7 million, this is a really good opportunity to be able to own a car with many meanings.
