Bugatti Veyron Ettore Bugatti Legend Edition Shown at the Paris Motor Show

The massively impressive Bugatti Veyron isn't just the poster car of the 21st century, but also a great looking beast, especially when it's exterior is hand-polished aluminum. The sixth model in the "Les Legendes de Bugatti" series of limited edition vehicles is automotive eye candy with a touch of history.

As it happens, the most special Veyron to date is an homage to the brand's founder and inspiration - the one and only Ettore Bugatti. An element such as the contrasting aluminum and dark-blue exterior renders this 1,200 horsepower monster as one of the most elegant Veyron variants we ever laid our eyes upon.

Underpinned by the goodies one might find on the 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, the Ettore Bugatti Legend limited edition is powered by the same 8-liter quad-turbo W16 powerhouse that happens to deliver a whopping 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) to all four wheels.

A stylistic feature that connects this car to the vintage Type 35 racing Bugatti is represented by the superb wheels, which look similar in design and color combo to the ones fitted to the most successful racing model in the brand's 105-year existence. Anything else that is worth highlighting about it?

Why yes, there is! The brown calf and cordovan leather that's jacketing much of the hypercar's cabin need to go through a tanning process that takes six months. In addition to the ultra luxurious and creamy leather, the interior is further beautified by an enigmatic relief of a dancing elephant and door sills adorned with Ettore Bugatti's portrait and signature.

The most special edition of the most special hypercar in the world will be made in only three copies. Don't dare to ask about the sticker price of it. Instead, just remember it as the fastest ever road-legal production roadster. Great way to bring a homage to the man that started the Bugatti story, huh?
