The Jean Bugatti Veyron is one of the rarest Bugattis out there

Bugatti produced a limited run of a car inspired by Jean Bugatti.

The Jean Bugatti Legend Edition is based on a Veyron.

But it carries a very different price tag.

A Veyron itself is pretty rare, with just 450 models in existence.

But this model is even rarer with only three ever produced.

The car pays homage to Ettore Bugatti’s son, Jean.

He was head of Bugatti at just 27 years old, but was tragically killed during a test drive when he was 30.

Jean was responsible for many iconic Bugatti cars, most notably the Type 57SC Atlantic.

Some say this was the world’s first supercar, able to reach 123mph back in 1936.

There is only one of these left in the world, and it’s owned by Ralph Lauren.

The Jean Bugatti model takes inspiration from this legendary vehicle.

It has the same beige and brown interior and the door cards are embroidered with the Atlantic’s profile.

The gear stick has been carved out of the same luxurious material as the 1930s model: rosewood.

The petrol and oil cap features an engraved Jean Bugatti signature.

Of course, the manufacturer added some modern touches too including black wheels with diamond-cut edging and a platinum-covered Bugatti horseshoe.

This is the first time that platinum has been used on the exterior of a Bugatti vehicle.

And this limited edition doesn’t just look pretty: it’s powerful too.

With an 8-liter W16 engine, it generates a huge 1,200 horsepower and 1,500 Nm torque.

It can reach 60mph in just 2.6 seconds.

The combination of exclusivity and power makes these models incredibly expensive.

A ‘regular’ Bugatti Veyron will cost you about $1.3 million.

The Jean Bugatti Legend Edition is a touch more expensive.

One of these is worth upwards of $3.9 million.
