2014 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is up for auction

Between 2012 and 2015, Bugatti produced only 92 examples of the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse and one of them, the 2014 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is up for auction.

This car is the 46th produced and was ordered by a Japanese customer who gave up before delivery, so the car ended up in England. It is finished in a combination of black and blue, with blue brake calipers, black magnesium components and stitched seats, which is part of a €375,500 optional equipment package. The current owner bought the car in 2017 and covered it with a paint protection film. In preparation for the auction, the car was serviced in April, which cost more than 30,000 euros.

Inside, the seats are upholstered in Tangerine orange leather with embroidered details on the headrest. Tangerine orange also covers the lower part of the dashboard, door panels and roof, and there is an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel as well as carbon details on the center console.

Under the bonnet is an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine with 1,183 hp (882 kW) @ 6,400 rpm and 1,100 lb-ft (1,500 Nm) @ 3,000–5,000 rpm. That is enough for the car to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.6 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 375 km/h (233 mph). It has only 4,088 km on the odometer.

The auction will take place on June 12th and the estimated value of this Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is £2,000,000 – £2,500,000 GBP.

1981 Lamborghini Countach LP 400 S is for sale

At the beginning of the 70s, Lamborghini started the production of the sports car Countach, and the first model was the LP400. Four years later, it was replaced by the LP400 S model, which is the rarest variant of the Countach. 237 LP 400 S were produced, of which 105 belong to the second production series, and one of them is for sale. It is a 1981 Lamborghini Countach LP 400 S with chassis number 1121296, estimated at $650,000 USD.

This car is finished in attractive Tahiti Blue and is in excellent condition. It is powered by a 3.9-L V12 engine with 350 hp (261 kW) @ 7000 rpm and 302 lb-ft (409 Nm) of torque @ 4500 rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission.

Compared to the LP400 model, the LP400 S has wider fenders for the widest tires available on a production car at the time, 345/35R15 Pirelli P7. A boomerang rear wing was an option, and tests showed it reduced the top speed by at least 16 km/h (10 mph). Despite that, most owners ordered the car with the wing.

The car was delivered as new to Switzerland, and was finished in red over a beige leather interior. After that, the owner painted it in an attractive Tahiti Blue. In 2005, the car changed owners, and it should be noted that the first owner overhauled the engine. The rest of the vehicle remained unrestored and had only 5,000 km on the odometer. After that, it changed several owners, and in 2021 it was bought by the current owner who, in preparation for the sale, had the car serviced and cosmetically refurbished, which cost 71,000 euros.
