Bugatti has introduced the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse special edition at the Paris Motor Show.

Originally unveiled at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, the one-off model draws inspiration from the 1928 Type 37A which is owned by Jay Leno. As such, it has Bianco and New Light Blue exterior which is contrasted by a Cognac leather interior.

Like the standard model, power is provided by a quad-turbocharged 7.9-liter W16 engine that produces 1,200 HP (882 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which enables the roadster to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.6 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 410 km/h (255 mph).

Despite being shown in Paris, the car has already been sold for $2.5 (€1.9 / £1.5) million.
