Bugatti is continuing its six-part edition series, “Les Légendes de Bugatti”, at the Geneva International Motor Show to honor some of the more important people in the company’s history. Last year the long-established French brand successfully presented the first three Legends models. All nine vehicles of these model series have been sold. Now Bugatti is celebrating another high point with its fourth legend – named in honor of Rembrandt Bugatti, brother of company founder Ettore and one of the most important sculptors of the early 20th century. As with the other Legends models, only three will be manufactured
The Legends edition
The “Rembrandt Bugatti” is the fourth Legend from the brand. To launch the “Les Légendes de Bugatti” edition last year, Bugatti presented “Jean-Pierre Wimille” at California’s Pebble Beach, “Jean Bugatti” at the IAA in Frankfurt and “Meo Costantini” at the Dubai Motor Show. All nine vehicles of these three Legends have been sold. “The Legends edition is a great success for Bugatti. The response from our customers is amazing,” said Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.
The “Rembrandt Bugatti” is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. Its 8 litre W16 engine achieves an unparalleled torque of 1,500 Nm from 1,200 PS at 3,000–5,000 rpm, and can accelerate from 0–100 km in 2.6 seconds. With a maximum speed of 408.84 km/h with the roof down, the Vitesse is the fastest production roadster ever built.
In short, Rembrandt Bugatti is a super sports car that fuses beauty and elegance with great dynamics and sporting appeal. The “Rembrandt Bugatti” Vitesse costs €2.18 million Euro net and the three model series of the Legends edition have already been sold. Bugatti will present the fifth Legends model at the Auto China 2014 in Beijing taking place in April.
