Special edition Bugatti's are on the rise once again, and this time around they are commemorating its heroes. The six special Veyron 16.4 versions are a mystical line-up starting with the 2013 Bugatti Veyron Jean-Pierre Wimille.
This masterpiece pays homage to the 24 hours Le Man's two-time winner: Jean Pierre Wimille. In 1937, he won the championship driving a Bugatti 57G Tank with Robert Benoist as his co-driver.
Two years later, he bagged the same trophy with the 57C Tank driving with Pierre Veyron. He is a kingpin in the history of Bugatti supercars and will be forever remembered for his contribution in the creation of the French legend.

Exterior & Interior
The exterior veneer compliments flawlessly the interior theme. As Chief designer of Bugatti, Achim Anscheidt puts it; all the fine details of the car pay tribute to the legend themselves. That said; the Bugatti Veyron Jean-Pierre Wimille that sparkles a lustrous blue coat is authentically Jean-Pierre inspired. This color scheme is distinct for the six models, each coming with an exclusive color code representing a theme that the icon preferred.
This lineup of Bugatti models is unlike any other, and is expected to become a collectors dream. The cars come from a place where engineers put their hearts, craftsmanship and years of experience into each vehicle.
