Bugatti Veyron Legend Jean Bugatti: second special edition revealed

The Bugatti Veyron Legend Jean Bugatti has been unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show. The second car in a six-model ‘Legend’ series, and following the ‘Jean-Pierre Wimille’ edition revealed last August, the Bugatti Veyron Legend Jean Bugatti shares the same specifications as the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, meaning a quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine sends 882kW and 1500Nm to all four wheels.
