The Bugatti Legend Meo Constantini, which is a tribute to the Bugatti Type 35, just made a show at the Dubai international Motor Show.
The Meo Constantini edition is based on the Veyton 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse and will be limited to only three cars, priced at €2.09 million each ($2.82 million), excluding taxes and transport.
Technically, it is identical with the Bugatti Veyron16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, which means it’s powered by an 8-liter W16 engine producing 1,200hp and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque. The roadster accelerates to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.6 seconds and can reach a top speed of 409 km/h (253 mph) with the top down.
