With great power come inexplicably large names. The latest special edition Bugatti Veyron is the Black Bess. Belonging to the Bugatti Legends series, the new supercar pays homage to the Type 18 Black Bess. One of the fastest street legal cars of its age, the Type 18 made quite a mark in the pre World War I era.
Veyron Grand Sport Black Bess comes with the standard Veyron 1000hp W16 engine, that takes the supercar from zero to 100 kph (62mph) in just 2.6 seconds, all the way to the top speed of 254mph (408kph) with the roof down.
Paying homage to the legend comes through largely cosmetic changes that don’t forget to reiterate the luxury status of the Black Bess. Exterior of the car is carbon fiber painted black, inlaid with 24 carat gold and gold paint details.
Interiors get a light beige upholstery with red stitching, solid gold inlays, and the steering wheel covered in red leather.
