We’ve known about this for a couple of weeks, but we gave our word we wouldn’t spoil the party. But the news has now found its way on to the Interweb, so I guess we may as well run with it!
The Blue Centenaire Veyron we saw recently at Geneva is just a glimpse of what the Bugatti Veyron L’Edition Centenaire is about. It will be a limited edition of just four cars to celebrate historical racing drivers. Each car will be liveried in the colours of the drivers’ home country – Blue for France, Red for Italy, British Racing Green for the UK and White for Germany.
But the cars won’t be solid colour, they will, as the Pur Sang did, have polished front wings and doors. In addition, they will have special features like LED lights and bespoke wheels. The headrests will feature the signature of the Racing Driver commemorated – Malcolm Campbell, Hermann Zu Leiningen, Jean-Pierre Wimille and Achille Varzi – and each will come with an engraved plaque.
List price for the Veyron L’Edition Centenaire is €1.4 million, and the cars will be previewd at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Cernobbio, Italy from later this week.
