A Frankfurt Motor Show isn’t complete without an appearance of sort from one of the kings of super cars, Bugatti. Thankfully the boys from Molsheim didn’t disappoint, after showing up and displaying the super-duper rare Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Sang Bleu special edition, to commemorate the brand’s 100th anniversary.
Bugatti has had a history of producing one-off special editions of their celebrated super car, the Veyron and the Sang Bleu is the latest example. Just like all other special-edition Veyrons out in the world, the Sang Bleu has been locked and loaded with one of the most powerful performance engines in the world. The car is powered by a mighty quad-turbocharged W16 engine with a maximum output of 746 kW (1001 HP) and 1 250 N.m of torque. In terms of speed, the Sang Bleu’s speedometer will climb to an eye-watering 407 km/h.
As far as the exterior goes, the Sang Bleu features a shimmering royal blue and chrome silver paint job, with matching two-tone white and royal blue wheels, making the Sang Bleu stand out from the other, more ‘common’ Veyron’s out on the streets.
And if standing out is what turns you on, then you’ll be pleased to learn that the Veyron Sang Bleu is so limited that only one was ever built. The one you’re seeing at Frankfurt is the only one of its kind on the planet and unfortunately for those who’re reaching for their wallets – the car has already been sold for a staggering USD2.7 million!
