Bugatti Veyron Specials Revealed

Luxury Cars: A Few weeks ago we revealed to you the fact that Bugatti will bring four special models at this year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este. Today the four vehicles were revealed and according to the manufacturer these pay homage to Ettore Bugatti's Type 35 Grand Prix. For those who don't know, the Type 35 Grand Prix was by far the most successful racing model. The unmistakable radiator grille and eight-spoke aluminum wheels of the Type 35 have become defining features of the Bugatti automobile. In its day, the Grand Prix was also well ahead of its time in terms of engineering ingenuity. The Bugatti Veyron Specials were built in order to mark the 100th anniversary of the brand, featuring the racing colors of the respective countries: blue for France, red for Italy, green for England and white for Germany. Each of the four Veyron Specials is named after a Bugatti race-car driver of the 1920s and 30s. Jean-Pierre Wimille has given the blue Veyron its name, Achille Varzi the red one, Malcolm Campbell the green one and Hermann zu Leiningen the white Veyron.

"We have put a lot of effort into translating colour and material, the defining characteristics of our historic role models, into the designs of the modern-day Veyrons," said Alasdair Stewart, Director Sales & Marketing at Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. "We have taken extreme care to match the original colours of the original race cars, exterior and interior."
