The French luxury marquee Bugatti at the recent 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and The Quail, not only displayed “Les Légendes de Bugatti” (Bugatti Legends), but also unveiled the Bugatti Capsule Collection for its fashion conscious fans. The tailor-made fashion and accessories pieces for men and women are available exclusively for owners of the limited edition Bugatti Legends “Les Légendes de Bugatti”. Each of the six Bugatti Legends “Les Légendes de Bugatti” is limited to only three units, 18 cars in total.
Each line consists of leather jackets, pants, T-shirts, gloves, belts, hats, scarves and bags. The unique outfits take inspiration from each of the six Bugatti Legends models. They are made from premium materials like buffalo, deer, calf and cordovan leather and precious metals to be as exclusive as the Legends Edition itself.
The Bugatti Legends models include “Jean-Pierre Wimille”, “Jean Bugatti”, “Meo Costantini”, “Rembrandt Bugatti”, “Black Bess”, and “Ettore Bugatti”. Each Legend is based on the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, which sports a 1,183 horsepower, quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 that can launch it to 60 mph from a standstill in just 2.6 seconds.

Celebrating the brand’s first victory at Le Mans 24-hour, the outfit reflects the champion’s feats on the lining of the jacket, which has a stylized drawing of the racetrack and on the unique edition T-shirt with a print of the racing goggles typical of the period.
