The Beijing Motor Show continues as Bugatti has taken the wraps off the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess.

Designed to honor the Type 18 Black Bess, which featured a 5.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produced 100 PS (73 kW), the Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess has a black exterior with 24-carat gold accents on the EB logo and wheel caps.

The two-tone interior features Beige and Havanna leather upholstery as well as a Crimson red leather steering wheel and hand-painted leather door panel inserts. Other highlights include rosewood trim, gold accents and "Les Légendes de Bugatti" badging.

Like the standard model, the Black Bess is powered by a quad-turbocharged 8.0-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 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 and pricing starts at €2.15 ($2.96 / £1.76) million.
