Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse celebrates the music of Lang Lang
Lang Lang has inspired the design of a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse
. The car was presented by the world famous pianist at an event that took place last month at Chateau St. Jean in California, and features a color scheme that mimics the black and white keys of a piano as well as the two-tone finish of an original Bugatti Type 57 Atalante.
Inside, the black and white theme is continued and two identical panels are featured. These bare the signature of the talented musician. They also reveal the name of this latest special edition, the La Maison Pur Sang.
It’s not clear if the car is still available for sale or whether a wealthy individual has already snapped it up. The latter is likely to be the case, as these special edition Bugattis are barely seen in showrooms.
What is clear is that this latest special edition is based on Bugatti’s open-top Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. This means it comes powered by a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16, rated at 1,184 horsepower and 1,106 pound-feet of torque. Top speed is limited to 233 mph, though we know the car is capable of hitting 254 mph
--with its top down. The 0-62 mph run takes 2.6 seconds._______________________________________Follow Motor Authority on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
