The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess has been officially introduced during the 2014 Beijing Motor Show.
The model in question has been designed to honor the Type 10 Black Bess, which came with a four-cylinder 5.0 liter engine, which was goof for 100 PS (73 kW). Bugatti says that the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess is taking its power from the same engine as the standard hypercar, the 8.0 liter W16 quad turbocharged unit, which is rated at 1,200 HP (882 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
The 0 to 100 km/h sprint in the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess takes just 2.6 seconds and top speed of the vehicle, with its roof down, stands at an impressive 408.84 km/h (253 mph). The limited edition hypercar has a black exterior with 24-carat golf accents, on the wheel caps and on the EB logo, and a two-tone interior with Havanna and Beige leather upholstery, along with hand painted leather door panel inserts, Crimson red leather steering wheel, rosewood trim and others. A total of three units will be put into production and each one will cost 2,15 million euros.
