Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Venet announced

Bugatti has teamed up with French artist Bernar Venet for a special edition of the Veyron Grand Sport.

Bugatti has teamed up with French artist Bernar Venet for yet another special edition of the Veyron in Grand Sport guise.

Located in New York, the conceptual artist was asked by Bugatti to come up with something truly special for this week's Art Basel Miami Beach. Running across the vehicle's front fascia and over its flanks are many mathematic and scientific formulas that Bugatti's engineers used while creating the supercar. These formulas are spread over a rusted metal-like finish to give the Veyron a special look.

This theme continues inside where the leather trim and dashboard panels have a rusted look, while the door panels have been covered by bright orange formulas.

Power comes from the familiar W16 8.0-liter turbo engine with 1,001 hp (746 kW) that ensures a top speed of 252 mph (405 km/h). With the roof off, top speed is limited to 224 mph (360 km/h), while with the temporary umbrella-like cloth roof it can reach only 81 mph (130 km/h).
