Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess

Bugatti is definitely the highest standard of exclusivity, luxury, elegance, style, extraordinary design and passion. Characterized by unique visions, strong legacy of legendary sports cars and high-precision engineering in development, construction and manufacturing process, the name is transformed into an outstanding automotive brand. All the brand’s values have been set in the Bugatti Veyron, an aesthetic and engineering masterwork which is now being present at the Beijing Auto Show with a special model, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess.

The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess is part of the series of vehicles dedicated to the legend of the Bugatti brand. The supercar is a tribute brought for the Type 18 Black Bess. The legendary vehicle was powered by a 5.0-liter four-cylinder engine that was capable of developing 100 PS (73 kW. Now the Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess is distinguished by a black exterior with 24-carat gold accents on the EB logo and wheel caps.

The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess represents the maximum of elegance provided by the two-tone interior with Beige and Havanna leather upholstery as well as a Crimson red leather steering wheel and hand-painted leather door panel inserts. Other noticeable elements are the rosewood trim, gold accents and "Les Légendes de Bugatti" badges which make sure that the car has its special place in the Bugatti legend series.

The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess is powered by a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine that generates 1,200 PS (882 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque. This works linked to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which allows the awesome supercar to sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 2.6 seconds and to reach a peak speed of 408.84 km/h (253 mph) when it has its roof down. Of course, the spectacular vehicle will come out as a limited edition. And when we say limited, think that only three units will be manufactured. The price is estimated around €2.15 ($2.96 / £1.76) million. And for us the only thing we can do is to admire one of the masterpieces of the automobile world.
