Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire

By Nauman Farooq

 

One of the most highly anticipated premieres for this year’s Geneva Motor Show was for the latest version of the Bugatti Veyron.

 

It is called the Bleu Centenaire, and marks the brands 100th birthday.

 

However, many were expecting this version to be a lighter, faster version of this already super fast supercar, but unfortunately that is not the case.

This new edition is nothing more than a new paint job with some even more exclusive interior trimming options.

 

So while it might not be any faster than a normal Veyron, it is hard not to be impressed by a car that produces 1001 hp from its quad-turbo, 16-cylinder engine, and can top 407 km/h.

 

Bugatti, which is owned by the VW Group, produces the Veyron at a specially built factory in Molsheim, France. Each Veyron takes over 500 hours to complete and prices start at $1,624,000 (Euros 1-million).

 

Unfortunately, if you live in Canada, you cannot have a Veyron, as they are not street-legal here.
