Bugatti has unveiled the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Ettore Bugatti special edition at the Paris Motor Show.

Originally shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, the special edition is the sixth and final member of the "Les Légendes de Bugatti" collection.

Since the car was named after the company's founder, Bugatti pulled out all the stops to create one the most luxurious and exclusive Veyrons ever made. As result, the car has a hand-polished aluminum front end which contrasts with the dark blue exposed carbon fiber rear end. The model also has bespoke alloy wheels and an elegant interior with natural brown calf leather and a platinum-coated dancing elephant emblem.

Like the standard model, the Ettore Bugatti Edition is powered by a quad-turbocharged 8-liter W16 engine that produces 1,200 PS (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 car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 2.6 seconds and hit a top speed of up to 408.84 km/h (253 mph) with its roof down.

Bugatti President Wolfgang Dürheimer also revealed the Veyron is reaching the "finishing straight" as fewer than 20 cars remain available to customers. When the 450th and final Veyron is built Bugatti will start the "next chapter."

Dürheimer was coy on specifics but said “The next Bugatti will, without compromise, again take its position at the very top of the automotive world." He went on to say "The world’s most demanding automobile connoisseurs will continue to find the automotive grail at Bugatti."
