2015 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is up for auction

At the 2012 Geneva Motor Show Bugatti revealed the targa top version of the Veyron Super Sport, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. It is a limited edition that was produced until 2015 and only 92 cars left the factory. One of them, the 2015 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is up for auction.

This rare car is powered by a quad-turbo W-16 engine with 1,200 hp (882 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 1,100 lb⋅ft (1,500 N⋅m) at 3,000–5,000 rpm. That’s enough power to propel the car to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.6 seconds with a top speed of 254 mph (410 km/h), making it the fastest roadster in the world at the time. To ensure that the car can handle the massive power, Bugatti’s engineers strengthened the chassis.

The car is finished in light blue with contrasting blue carbon fiber trim, and in order to make it stand out from other examples, the owner decorated it with details inspired by the movies “Transformers”. The same theme continues in the interior of the car with matching two-tone blue and black leather with Bugatti’s Sport Comfort seats and blue contrasting stitching throughout. A Transformers logo is inlaid between the seats.

This Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse has been well maintained and is in mint condition with 5,163 km on the odometer. In August 2022, the car was sent to Bugatti Munich for an annual service. It should also be noted that the current owner elected to enroll his car in Bugatti’s Passport Tranquillité program in December 2022 for a two-year duration, ending in December 2024. This is a pre-paid comprehensive service program that includes the appropriate annual services for the car . This program remains tied to the car rather than the owner, and the next service will be free of charge if undertaken prior to August 31, 2024.

The auction will take place from 1-3 May 2024 and the car is currently located in Madrid.
