Rembrandt Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Sold Out!
Bugatti achieved unsurpassed success at the Geneva Motor Show and has disclosed that this is due to the fact that all three cars of the "Rembrandt Bugatti" Legend are already sold out. The price of this limited-edition Vitesse is 2.18 million Euros.
"Rembrandt Bugatti" is the fourth model of the six-part edition "Les Légendes de Bugatti" or "Bugatti Legends". The bran has designed and created them with the aim to pay homage to the important personalities from its company history. All six models are to be based on the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse and are strictly limited to three vehicles. The next legend will be presented at Auto China in one month.
Rembrandt Bugatti was brother of company founder Ettore and one of the most important sculptors. He became famous with a sculpture of a dancing elephant, which can be seen on the radiator of the Bugatti Type 41 Royale and which later became the brand's symbol.
Rembrandt Bugatti is equipped with 8 litre W16 engine which achieves an unparalleled torque of 1,500 Nm (1107 lb-ft) and 1,200 hp (882 kW) at 3,000–5,000 rpm. It can effortlessly accelerate from 0–100 km in only 2.6 seconds on its way to a maximum speed of 408.84 km/h with the roof down. This makes the Vitesse the fastest production roadster ever built.
The body of this supersports car was designed in the "horizontal split", and is largely composed of bronze-coloured clear-coated carbon. The lower half of the vehicle is painted in an elegant light brown - "Noix". The famous Bugatti horseshoe gleams in platinum from the front grille, with platinum also ringing the EB logo at the rear.
The Legend runs on wheels in dark "Firefinch" and light "Noix" browns. In reference to the artist and Legends car's namesake, Rembrandt Bugatti's signature has been lasered onto the petrol and oil cap.
Inside, the same elegant and harmonious treatment is applied. This Vitesse is entirely upholstered with leather in light brown "Cognac". The rear centre box between the seats has a new provocative design. It sports Rembrandt Bugatti's famous elephant sculpture. The elephant was cast in bronze and worked as an insert into the cover.
The latter is made of bronze-coloured clear-coated carbon. The door trim features braided leather in the colours of "Cognac" and "Coffee". Platinum is also to be found in the interior onto the EB logo on the steering wheel.
The insert of bronze-coloured clear-coated carbon on the extended centre console with the lettering "Les Légendes de Bugatti" and Rembrandt Bugatti's elephant, the door sill plates displaying the sculptor's portrait and signature are also unique features for this Bugatti Legend.
