During the highly anticipated motor show, all three units of the unique Rembrandt Bugatti have been sold to customers in the Middle East and the US, for €2.18 million (approximately US$3,026,300). The “Les Légendes de Bugatti” series is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. Each limited edition (of only three units) is created to honor important personalities from the company’s history.
“Rembrandt Bugatti was an exceptional sculptor. He represents the strong artistic roots of the Bugatti family, as did his father, Carlo…As vehicle developer and founder of the Bugatti brand, Ettore was also inspired by this artistic heritage. Art is of course one of our three brand values, namely ‘Art, Forme, Technique’. This makes Bugatti unique in automotive history, and was the reason we dedicated this striking Legends model to Rembrandt Bugatti.” said Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., at the presentation of the latest “Les Légendes de Bugatti” edition.
The Rembrandt Bugatti model proudly sports Rembrandt Bugatti’s famous elephant sculpture, the hood ornament of the Type 41 Royale and today is the symbol for both the brand and the Legends edition, while the exterior sports Rembrandt Bugatti’s signature that has been lasered onto the petrol and oil cap.
