2014 Bugatti 16/4 Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse ‘Rembrandt Bugatti’
Bugatti is continuing its six-part edition series,
“Les Légendes de Bugatti”, at the Geneva nternational Motor Show (6–16 March) to honour some of the more important people in the ompany’s history. Last year the long-established French brand successfully presented the first three Legends models.
All nine vehicles of these model series have been sold. Now Bugatti is celebrating another high point with its fourth legend – named in honour of Rembrandt Bugatti, brother of company founder Ettore and one of the most important culptors of the early 20thncentury. One of his 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. The Legends model is based on the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.
As with the other Legends models, only three will be manufactured. The “Rembrandt Bugatti” Vitesse costs €2.18 million Euro net.
