Bugatti is ready to introduce its fifth special edition Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, this one called “Black Bess”. It is part of the company’s “Legends” series and this particular limited-run model pays homage to the Type 18 Black Bess, one of the company’s models with which Ettore Bugatti triumphed in 1912 in the Monte Ventoux hill climb. The vehicle was powered by an inline four-cylinder 5.0-liter engine delivering 100 PS which granted the Black Bess with a remarkable top speed of 100 mph (161 km/h).
This Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Black Bess will be limited to three units and all will have a black carbon fiber body featuring gold accents. On the inside there’s a light beige leather upholstery together with red Crimson leather on the steering wheel and Havanna leather on the door trim panel, cowl panel, dashboard and dash panel.
It will be exhibited to the public later this month at the Beijing Motor Show in China.
