Bugatti Veyron Meo Costantini

The Bugatti Veyron Legend Meo Costantini is the third model in the company’s six-part “Les Légendes de Bugatti” series of specially modified Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse cars, dedicated to and inspired by the drivers that helped to establish the company as a top sportscar builder.

A close friend of founder Ettore Bugatti and double Targa Florio champion, Meo Costantini’s legendary status was achieved in the 1920s behind the wheel of a Type 35 Bugatti.

Its wings, doors and the corners of the front bumpers are rendered in hand-polished aluminum, and the remaining body panels sport a specially developed shade of “Bugatti dark Blue Sport” created to reference the classic blue sported not just by Bugatti, but by all French racing cars of the period.

Other unique touches include a silhouette of the Targa Florio race track — where Costantini made his name — on the underside of the car’s airbrake, which is only visible when the car rapidly decelerates. Costantini’s signature has also been laser-etched into the petrol and oil cap covers.

As such, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse that bears his name features several exterior styling cues designed to evoke memories of the Type 35.
