Few weeks ago we told you that Bugatti will hold private event in the US in an attempt to get rid of unsold Veyrons as its supercar is not quite a best seller. Still, it appears that the French carmaker now owned by the Volkswagen Group wants to prove us we are wrong and announced that all nine vehicles of the three models presented in the “Les Legendes de Bugatti” edition are already sold.
And this is not all, as Bugatti will present a total of six models in this edition, which means it is preparing another nine vehicles, each priced at around €2.2 million. For those who don’t know, Bugatti launched the “Les Légendes de Bugatti” edition last year and the first model to make its debut was paying tribute to Jean-Pierre Wimille, a two-time Le Mans winner for Bugatti.
The second model was unveiled back in September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show was dedicated to the design genius and son of company founder Ettore. The third and latest vehicle shown was named after Meo Costantini, head of the Bugatti factory racing team, and was unveiled in November at the Dubai Motor Show.
Each vehicle is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse a.k.a. the world's fastest production roadster. The fourth model that Bugatti will show will be introduced next week at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and if we listen to the rumors it will be named after Elisabeth Junek, a prominent female racing driver in the early 1920s.
“The Legends edition is a great success for Bugatti. The response from our customers is amazing. These are automotive works of art, which each tell a part of Bugatti’s history,” says Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.
