Bugatti Veyron “Bleu” Centenaire Spotted in Monaco

After so many years on the market and hundreds of color combinations, it’s easy to look at any Bugatti Veyron as just another million-dollar car.
But when the numbers don’t speak for themselves, the company’s rich heritage does. For Bugatti’s 100-year anniversary, they unveiled no less than four special cars under the Centenaire Edition name.

These payed homage to France, Italy, the UK and Germany, and each car had a chrome+color paintjob that identified it. This one is the so-called Bleu Centenaire, which honors Jean-Pierre Wimille from France.

It’s been spotted a few times on the streets of Monaco by Shmee150, who put together this video montage.

The rest of the car is basically the same as any 16.4 Veyron, so the owner is driving around in an insanely-high power - 1001 horsepower (736 kW), 922 lb-ft (1250 Nm) of torque. The 0-100 acceleration is done in 3.2 seconds, with maximum speed going as much as 253 mph (407 km/h).

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
