Continuing its six-part Legends series, Bugatti has now released a Veyron dedicated to one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century, Rembrandt Bugatti. He was also the brother of company founder Ettore Bugatti.

The "Les Légendes de Bugatti" series honors some of the more important people in the company's history.

One of Rembrandt Bugatti's most significant works is the sculpture of a dancing elephant. It decorates the radiator of the Bugatti Type 41 Royale and became the brand's symbol. As with the other Legends models, only three will be manufactured.

The "Rembrandt Bugatti" is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. Its 8 liter W16 engine achieves an unparalleled torque of 1,106 lb-ft (1,500 Nm) from 1,200 hp at 3,000-5,000 rpm, and can accelerate from 0-60 mph 2.5 seconds. With a maximum speed of 254 mph (408.84 km/h) with the roof down, the Vitesse is the fastest production roadster ever built.

The Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse Rembrandt Bugatti costs 2.18 million euros or $3 million without tax.

"Rembrandt Bugatti was an exceptional sculptor. He represents the strong artistic roots of the Bugatti family, as did his father, Carlo," said Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., at the presentation of the Legends edition. "As vehicle developer and founder of the Bugatti brand, Ettore was also inspired by this artistic heritage. Art is of course one of our three brand values, namely 'Art, Forme, Technique'. This makes Bugatti unique in automotive history, and was the reason we dedicated this striking Legends model to Rembrandt Bugatti."

Exterior Design

The body of the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse Rembrandt Bugatti was designed in the "horizontal split", and is largely composed of bronze-colored clear-coated carbon as a gesture to the artist's favored material. The vehicle's lower half is painted in an elegant light brown, "Noix". The famous Bugatti horseshoe gleams in platinum from the front grille, with platinum also ringing the EB logo at the vehicle's rear. The wheels are painted in dark "Firefinch" and light "Noix" browns, and these colors combine to complete the elegant appearance and set the super sports car off against the asphalt.

In reference to the artist and Legends car's namesake, Rembrandt Bugatti's signature has been lasered onto the petrol and oil cap.

"Rembrandt Bugatti had a special talent for capturing the movement of animals at their most expressive moment," explains Achim Anscheidt, Head Designer at Bugatti. "The patina, the soul and the crafted character of his bronze sculptures guided us to the color and material choices in the Legend car that carries his name."
