The Geneva Motor Show is right around the corner and a new report is indicating Bugatti will unveil a new Grand Sport Vitesse Legend Edition in Switzerland.

According to GT Spirit, the model is named after Elisabeth Junek who was a prominent female racer in the early 1920s. She came close to winning the 1928 Targa Florio but a defective brake caused her to lose the lead and come in fifth.

Speculation suggests that particular car, a Type 35B, will spawn the inspiration for the Grand Sport Vitesse Legend Elisabeth Junek Edition. This likely means we can expect a "Bugatti Blue" exterior and some other special touches.

Like the standard model, the Elisabeth Junek Edition will be powered by an 8.0-liter W16 engine that produces 1,200 HP (882 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque. The engine will be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which will enable the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 408.84 km/h (253 mph) with its roof down.
