Bugatti unveils unique Grand Sport Vitesse for Lang Lang

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 6, 2013

Bugatti took inspiration from a concert grand piano to build a Grand Sport Vitesse in celebration of the concert by prominent pianist Lang Lang in Molsheim, France. The one-off model is inspired by the Type 57 Atalante and features black-tinted carbon fiber and Blanc Atalante paint meant to imitate piano keys.

This two-tone styling could be seen further in the cabin as the car has white leather door pads with black contrast stitching that is intended to bring to mind "note lines" on sheet music. In addition, the steering wheel has piano black trim and gold-plated accents.

Just like the standard model, the car is equipped with a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine that delivers 1,200 HP (882 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque. It is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, enabling the model to make the zero to 100 km/h sprint in 2.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 408.84 km/h (253 mph) if it has its roof down.
