2011 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Bleu Nuit
Offered by RM Auctions | New York, New York | November 21, 2013
The Bugatti Veyron is the current king of special edition models. There are seemingly more one-off versions produced by Bugatti for various reasons than there are normal from-the-factory models. So here we have the Bleu Nuit. And it’s the only one like it.
We’ll start with the fact that it is a Veyron 16.4: one of the most intensely engineered vehicles ever built. The engine is an 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 making 987 horsepower. And of course, everyone knows the original Veyron hit 253 mph. The Grand Sport (which is the roadster version) was introduced in 2009. It has a reinforced chassis to make up for the missing roof.
There was a factory one-off in 2010 called the Sang Bleu and the owner to-be of the car offered here liked that car, but wanted some changes. So Volkswagen – err… Bugatti built him a one-off as well, called Bleu Nuit (“Blue Night”). It has dark blue carbon fiber and polished aluminium. It has covered less than 350 miles since delivery.
Only 150 Grand Sport Veyrons were to be built (I think they may still be making them, but are capping it at 150). This is one of many one-of-a-kind Veyrons, but it’s the only one like this and it has a special from-the-factory designation. It could be yours for between $2,000,000-$2,800,000.
