Bugatti has announced plans to introduce their fourth Legend Edition at the Geneva Motor Show.

The company declined to elaborate but previous reports have indicated the car will be named after Elisabeth Junek who was a prominent female racing driver in the early 1920s.

The special edition will be based on the Grand Sport Vitesse which has an 8.0-liter W16 engine that produces 1,200 HP (882 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque. It 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.

In a statement, Bugatti President Dr Wolfgang Schreiber said “The Legends edition is a great success for Bugatti. The response from our customers is amazing. These are automotive works of art, which each tell a part of Bugatti’s history."

Bugatti also confirmed the company has sold all nine models of the previous announced Meo Costantini, Jean-Pierre Wimille and Jean Bugatti Legend Editions. All three were based on the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and carried a sticker price of approximately €2.2 ($3.0 / £1.8) million.
