Meo Costantini is a version of the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. It belongs to the super special Bugatti Legends family, a six-part special edition series each limited to just three units. So it is fair to say that it’s kind of a big deal seeing one of these up close and personal.

Mechanically, Bugatti Vitesse Meo Costantini is based on the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, powered by a 8-liter W16 engine with 1,500 Nm and 1,200 hp at 3,000-5,000 rpm. It can accelerate from 0-100 km (0-62 mph) in 2.6 seconds. The Vitesse was driven to a top speed of 408.84 km (253 MPH) with the roof down in April 2013, making it the fastest production roadster ever built. The Legend Edition Meo Costantini is priced at €2.09 million.
About the name: Meo Costantini was a close friend of the company’s founder, Ettore Bugatti. He was the head of Bugatti’s factory race team for many years and was also a driver, winning the Targa Florio two times in the Bugatti Type 35, one of the most successful racing cars of all time.
