The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Jean Pierre Wimille Legend Edition has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
If there would have been a competition on what carmaker provides the longest names for its vehicles than Bugatti would definitely win, as this isn’t the first time when the company is using such a long name for one of its models. The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Jean Pierre Wimille Legend Edition is named, of course, after Jean-Pierre Wimille, and it has been inspired by the Bugatti Type 57G Tank, which Wimille used to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans, back in 1937.
The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Jean Pierre Wimille Legend Edition is coming with a two-tone interior, with leather upholstery, embroidered headrests, blue carbon fiber trim, special “Les Legendes de Bugatti” badging and some other tweaks. Power is provided by the same 8-liter quad-turbo W16 engine, which is producing a total output of 1,200 HP (882 kW) and 1,500 Nm of torque (1,106 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint is done in just 2.6 seconds and top speed stands at 408.84 km/h (253 mph), with the roof down. No pricing details have been announced yet.
