As with all Legends Editions of the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, just three examples of the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Rembrandt Bugatti have been created. Despite the rarity, Munich based exotic dealer Semco Cars actually had two of the three sitting in its dealership!
The art world views Rembrandt Bugatti, known commonly as Rembrandt, as one of the most notable and artistically independent sculptors of the early 20th century. His fame was achieved through his animal sculptures and cast a large part of his work in bronze. The pieces are now on display in several of the most prestigious collections and museums across the globe for the public to admire. In the same way that Ettore saw automobile creation as an artistic process, Rembrandt Bugatti’s rise to stardom was based on his extraordinary artistic talent and his formidable ability to manipulate and sculpt many different materials and surfaces that still stuns critics to this very day.
The body of the “Rembrandt Bugatti” Legend Vitesse was designed with the “horizontal split” that we have seen on the Vitesse a numnber of times before. This example is largely composed of bronze-coloured clear-coated carbon as a gesture to the artist’s favoured material. The vehicle’s lower half is painted in an elegant and mellow light shade of brown, “Noix” that works very well with the aforementioned color.
Because the car is based around the standard Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, it features the same impressive 8.0-litre W16 engine delivering 1200 hp and 1500 Nm of torque from 3000-5000 rpm.
