| |
Continuing its centenary celebrations, Bugatti presented four special edition Veyrons at this weekend's Concorso d'Eleganza in Italy. These one off models pay homage to Bugatti's Type 35 Grand Prix racing car that won almost 2,000 races between 1924 and 1934. Each of the four Veyron Specials is named after a Bugatti race-car driver of the 1920s and 30s, and bears the racing colors of their respective country.

"We have taken extreme care to match the original colours of the original race cars, exterior and interior."
