French supercar makers Bugatti have used the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California to unveil the final model in their “Les Légendes de Bugatti” range of special editions created in honour of the manufacturer’s founder Ettore Bugatti.

Last year Bugatti announced that it would create six special editions of the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, all inspired by an iconic figure from the brand’s history.

Each edition would be strictly limited to just three units worldwide and would come with a price tag of $2.35 million.

So we come to the final edition of the six, the Bugatti Legend “Ettore Bugatti”, which is billed as reflecting the eponymous founder’s passion for natural materials. The car’s exterior features hand-polished, clear-coated aluminum panelling, all contrasted against dark blue exposed carbon fibre.

On the interior there is an array of two-toned cordovan leather and a platinum-coated dancing elephant emblem – the latter being a reference to the badge that Bugatti’s brother designed and which features on a number of the brand’s early cars

In terms of performance, the car can reach a hugely impressive top speed of 409kph and boasts a 0-100kph time of 2.6 seconds.
