It’s always a pleasure to talk about anything related to Bugatti and today we’re delighted to show you the latest in the Italian supercar manufacture’s Legends range: the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess, named after the Bugatti Type 18, released over 100 years ago (which was named Black Bess after a famous race horse of the time).
The new model is powered by a 1,200 PS 8.0-liter W16 engine that outputs 1,500 Nm of torque between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm. It can go from 0 to 62 mph at a lightning-fast pace, in just 2.6 seconds and has a top speed of over 250 mph (or 408 km/h) with the roof down.
The Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Black Bess scores just as high in the aesthetics department, its black exterior finish featuring various parts coated in 24kt gold. As for the interior, it comes with hand-painted leather-upholstery and Crimson leather covered steering wheel.
Only three Veyron Vitesse Black Bess supercars will ever be built, each of them priced at about $3 million.
