Pursuitist reveals the Bugatti 16.4 Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse ‘Jean-Pierre Wimille’ Edition.
Bugatti will reveal a special “Jean-Pierre Wimille” edition of its Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance taking place August 16-18 in Monterey, California. The extremely limited edition, consisting of just three models, is intended as an homage to the French champion driver, who won the Le Mans 24 Hour Race twice in the 1930s behind the wheel of a Bugatti.
This exceptional vehicle sports a unique blue exterior, with colors similar to those of the Bugattis driven by Wimille at Le Mans. This limited edition is the first of six new series dedicated to “Bugatti Legends,” celebrating the storied drivers who shaped the brand’s history. All of the Legend models will be unveiled within the coming year.
