Bugatti are continuing on their path of making just about every Bugatti Veyron that comes out of the factory a special edition car, so we get the third in a series of ‘Bugatti Legends’ cars in the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Meo Costantini at the Dubai Motor Show today. The Meo Costantini – named after Ettorio Bugatti’s friend and the one-time head of the Bugatti Race Team – is being built in a three car run, just like the Jean-Pierre Wimille Special Edition Veyron.
Power from the Meo Costantini Veyron is the same as the regular Grand Sport Vitesse – 1200 horses from its 8.0 litre W12 and a 0-62mph of 2.6 seconds and top speed of 253mph – but it gets cosmetic tweaks to suit its association with Meo Costantini.
That means references to the Bugatti Type 35 and a paint job that evokes the racing colours of France with polished clear-coated aluminium contrasting with the Bugatti Dark Blue Sport paint together with a painted illustration of the Targa Florio route on the rear wing.
Inside, Bugatti has given the Meo Costantini a full leather interior with contrasting panels of Gaucho and seats in dark blue with contrast stitching (that’s what Bugatti tell us, but the pictures look to have a black and tan interior), Meo Costantini’s signature on the headrests (as it is on the fuel filler and oil caps), with racing scenes and the Targa Florio race route appearing too.
It’s all very nice, even if Bugatti do want you to part with €2.09 million plus tax for the cosmetic makeover of the Grand Sport Vitesse.
