The third limited edition model in the ‘Les L?gendes de Bugatti’ series has been unveiled at the Dubai motor show this week and it is set to boast a whopping £1.8 million price tag as well distinctive paintwork and interior trim.

The model is entitled the Grand Sport Vitesse Meo Costantini and it pays homage to the former head of the Bugatti racing team and close friend of Ettore Bugatti, Meo Costantini.

Only three units will be produced and each will come with the familiarly potent W16, 8-litre quad-turbo engine that kicks out 1200bhp that can rocket the work-of-art-on-wheels to an astonishing 253mph.

The Meo Costantini can be singled out by the many references to the Bugatti Type 35 racing car of the 1920s, including a painted configuration of the Targa Florio race course on the underside of the rear wing.

The striking exterior hue is also a nod to the classic racing colours of France, while the hand-made interior features bespoke blue stitching across the leather trim and Meo Costantini's signature embroidered into the seats.

Unsurprisingly, we lack Bugatti Veyrons in our classified listings but you could opt for the next best thing: a Bentley Continental GT… it does have a W12 engine after all.
