Last week Bugatti showed first impressions of their latest version of the Veyron. At the 2009 Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este this weekend four new colours were unveiled following the heritage of the brand back to the beginning of the 20th century.

Before the second World War four race drivers drove the Bugatti Type 35 during several Grand-Prix races. These drivers were Jean-Pierre Wimille (Frankrijk, 1908-1949), Achille Varzi (Italie, 1904-1948), Malcolm Campbell (Engeland, 1885-1949) and Hermann Zu Leiningen (Duitsland, 1901-1971). In honour of these four men Bugatti unveiled the new Centenaire in four new colours: Bleu (French), Rosso (Italian), Reinweiss (German) and British racing green (Britain).
