Bugatti Automobile S.A.S
Bugatti has revealed yet another special edition version of its iconic Veyron hypercar. Called the '1 of 1', the new model is a bespoke creation, commissioned by a customer in Singapore. It was revealed at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California last weekend.
Stretching the exclusivity of the Veyron special editions somewhat, the 1 of 1 is the 25th uniquely styled Veyron, and the 14th to be based on the convertible Grand Sport variant.
Its black and yellow colour scheme is an homage to classic Bugatti models from the early 20th century, including the Type 44 (pictured above) and Type 55, which were painted in a similar hue on the order of company founder Ettore Bugatti.
Aside from contrasting body panels, this latest special edition Veyron gets black and yellow mesh grilles (with the customer's initials laser-etched into the front mesh) and wheels. Inside, it's rather more than fancy leather colours, with the car's silhouette laser etched into the door trims. The door sills have also been customised with an engraved portrait of the car's owner, which is sure to make the car easy to sell on in future...
However, development work has already begun on the Veyron's replacement, which has been spied in testing. Details are currently thin on the ground, but the new car is likely to feature an even more powerful (1,200bhp+) version of the Veyron's quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine, with a projected top speed of around 270mph.
