Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Venet Special Edition smiles from Geneva image

Bugatti has revealed a new special edition of the Veyron, named the Grand Sport Venet, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The fastest ever road-going car couldn’t stay aside from one of the most important automotive events on the Old Continent this year, the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, and the VW-owned brand has pulled the wraps off a new special edition of the hypercar. The new Bugatti model is named the Veyron Grand Sport Venet Special Edition and it has been developed in collaboration with Bernar Venet, the famous French artist. The hypercar in question has been described as being “the fastest artwork ever”.

“A Bugatti is already a work of art in itself, one that transports both its beholder and its driver into new dimensions of reality. I realized how I could translate my passion for mathematical equations and scientific treatises into three-dimensional form”, said Bernar Venet.

The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Venet Special Edition isn’t a stranger to the public and the model has already been unveiled a few months ago. The Veyron Grand Sport Venet is powered by a quad turbocharged W16 engine, producing 1001 HP (736 kW) and 1,250 Nm of torque (922 lb-ft), allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 407 km/h.
