The Bugatti Legends Series is a collection of 6 special edition Grand Sport Veyron Vitesse cars. Each car pays homage to a special person from Bugatti’s history, and just 3 examples of each of the 6 cars exist. One of them, the Meo Costantini car, is already for sale.
Meo Costantini was born in 1889 and embodied the face of the most successful era in Bugatti’s rich racing history. According to Wolfgang Schreiber, President of Bugatti Automobile S.A.S. “Ettore Bugatti’s vehicles from the 1920s stand for lightweight construction and technical aesthetics. When Bugatti created the Type 35, he inspired one of the most successful racing cars of all time. The Vitesse ‘Meo Costantini” is reminiscent of the Type 35.”
The Meo car was the 3rd model released in the 6 car series. It is being advertised with an asking price of $2.7 million, but the price is not the surprising factor—it seems odd that it is being publicly sold rather than invite-only or private. It is a part of perhaps the most special collection of Bugatti cars, after all. The car has been driven approximately 4800 km and does not seem to have made many public appearances with its bright blue and chrome form. Under the shiny shell, the Meo car is mechanically identical to the standard Bugatti Veyron Vitesse convertible, packing an aggressive quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine delivering 1,200 horses. While the Vitesse can nail the 0-60 mile per hour sprint in 2.6 seconds, the sale seems to be taking a touch longer. Which of the 6 Bugatti Legends Series cars was your favorite?
