The new model pays tribute to Meo Costantini, head of the Bugatti factory race team (1927-1935), two-time Targa Florio winner in a Bugatti Type 35 and a close friend to Ettore Bugatti.

Limited to only three examples, just like the previous “Les Legendes de Bugatti” Veyrons, the Meo Costantini edition comes in a Bugatti Dark Blue Sport and polished aluminum exterior and features “silhoutte” of the historic Targa Florio race course on the underside of the rear wing. Inside, the supercar has a custom leather trim with blue stitching, Meo Costantini’s signature embroidered in the seats, an aluminum plate depicting the Targa Florio track and laser-engraved “racing scenes and vintage car motifs on the doors”.

No changes have been made under the hood, which means power is provided by the familiar W16 8.0-liter quad-turbo rated at 1,200 HP and 1,106 lb-ft of torque. The mill enables the vehicle to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standing start in 2.6 seconds and a top speed of 253 mph (408 km/h). The Bugatti Veyron Meo Costantini edition cost €2.09 ($2.81 / £1.76) million before taxes.

“Meo Costantini embodies the most successful era in Bugatti’s racing history,” says Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. “Ettore Bugatti’s vehicles from the 1920s stand for light-weight construction and technical aesthetics. When Bugatti created the Type 35, he inspired one of the most successful racing cars of all time. The Vitesse ‘Meo Costantini’ is reminiscent of the type 35.”
