At the upcoming Monterey Car Week in California, Bugatti will unveil the
sixth and final Legends model, the Ettore Bugatti.
The "Ettore Bugatti" Legend is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, as are all the other Legends. The super sports car is powered by a 1,200 hp, 8-liter W16 engine that transmits an unequalled 1,106 lb-ft (1,500 Nm) at 3,000 to 5,000 rpm to the tarmac and rockets it from zero to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. With a maximum speed of 254 mph (408.84 km/h) with the roof down, the Vitesse is the world's fastest production roadster ever built.
As with the five previous Legends, only three of the final Legends model will be produced. It costs $3 million without taxes.
One year ago, Bugatti launched the exclusive model series during the Monterey Car Week at the well-known automotive events "The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering" and "Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance" with the first Legend. This year, the crowning conclusion will be held on August 15 at the same location with the world première of the company's sixth Legend. It honors Ettore Bugatti, founder and patron of the brand, and is based on the historical model Type 41 Royale.
"Ettore Bugatti is our 'patron'. His demand that an automobile be a perfect harmony of technology and aesthetics still applies to us today. Ettore Bugatti always strived for the creation of a total work of art. His ideas and vehicles set the foundation stone for an automobile brand that was lauded then and now as the most valuable in the world. Ettore Bugatti himself is a legend. It was clear from the start that we should dedicate the final Legends model to him personally," said Wolfgang Durheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.
One-off presentation of all six Legends at Pebble Beach Alongside the world première of the Ettore Bugatti Legend, for the first and only time, Bugatti will be presenting all six models of the Legends Edition on Friday, August 15 at "The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering" and also on Sunday, August 17 at the "Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance".
