2012 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport ‘Wei Long’ is up for auction

Between 2009 and 2015, Bugatti produced the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport model, the targa top version of the Bugatti Veyron EB. Only 58 examples of this model were produced, and in celebration of the Chinese New Year (Year of the Dragon) Bugatti produced a unique example of this car, the 2012 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport ‘Wei Long’ which is now up for auction.

The car is finished in Porcelain White with brushed aluminum and gloss-black trim elements. In addition to the standard equipment found on every Veyron Grand Sport, this example is equipped with dragon heads carved into porcelain inserts on the oil and fuel filler caps, and special 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels with a diamond finish and red accents.

The beautiful cockpit is covered with Italian Red leather and there are Chinese inscriptions on the headrest. There are also diamond-quilted inserts on the seats and center console, embossed ‘EB’ crests on the seat backs, a body-coloured center console inlay, and swathes of brushed aluminum trim.

Under the hood is a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine with 987 hp (736 kW) and 922 lb-ft (1,250 Nm) of torque. That is quite enough for the car to accelerate from 0-100km/h (62 mph) in less than 2.7 seconds, 0-200km/h in 7.3 seconds, with a top speed of 407km/h (253mph). Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission with paddle shift.

The car is in pretty good condition with only 8,428 km on the odometer. It comes with the original red leather-bound key presentation box, an EEC certificate of conformity, a photocopy of the original Swiss registration, a copy of the Monaco registration card in the seller’s name, UK MOT certificates, one Contrôle Technique certificate from Monaco dated April 2023, the original stamped service book and owner’s operating guide, a battery charger, a Bugatti-branded car cover, and a selection of maintenance invoices.

The auction ends on February 18 and the highest bid at the time of writing was €900,500.
