There Have Been 34 Special Edition Veyrons… So Far

If you think of the Bugatti Veyron, you think of power, speed, and money. But more recently, you think ‘Special Editions’.

400 Veyrons have been built since 2005, 300 of which have been coupés (the Veyron and Super Sport) and the other 100 convertibles (the Grand Sports and Vitesse), with another 50 convertibles due to be built. But out of these 400, 34 have been special editions.

18 are ‘official’ Bugatti specials (although at least another four are due to be made) and another 16 ‘unofficial’ specials have been built over the years.

It’s not that building special edition cars is a particularly bad thing, as the fact that VW started the Veyron programme at all when each car makes a loss of £3,887,051 (a total loss for Bugatti of £1.43 billion) is a fantastic triumph of engineer’s brains over accountant’s books. But nowadays we here the word special thrown about a bit too much, wouldn’t you say? Surely every Veyron is ‘special’, no matter what name it carries?

Here’s the list:
