Bugatti Legend Jean-Pierre Wimille Edition based on Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse debuts


Bugatti’s legendary World Record Car is all set to make history again. This time, the luxury car manufacturer is all set to “celebrate its heroes”. And in celebratory spirits is launching six special Legend Editions of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, named after six key figures from the Bugatti annals, who have contributed in shaping its history. The exclusive edition “Les Légendes de Bugatti” (Bugatti Legends) have chosen its first Legend as Jean-Pierre Wimille, who garnered two victories for Bugatti at the Le Mans: one in 1937 in a 57G Tank and the other in 1939 in a 57C Tank.
