Bugatti has officially unveiled the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Jean-Pierre Wimille Legend Edition at Pebble Beach.

Named after Jean-Pierre Wimille, the special edition has a two-tone exterior that draws inspiration from the Bugatti Type 57G Tank which Wimille used to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1937. The model also has Le Mans-inspired graphics and lasered logos of Jean-Pierre Wimille's signature.

The two-tone interior features Bleu Wimille and Lake Blue leather upholstery with light blue contrast stitching. There's also embroidered headrests, blue carbon fiber trim and special “Les Légendes de Bugatti” badging.

Like the standard model, the JPW Edition is powered by a quad-turbocharged 8-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 model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 2.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 408.84 km/h (253 mph) with its roof down.

Production will be limited to three units but there's no word on pricing.
