Bugatti has officially debuted the first of its five "Legends" cars, which pay tribute to six of the most revered figures in the French manufacturer's pre-war history. The first, which we detailed a few weeks back, is dedicated to Bugatti's longest-serving test driver, Jean-Pierre Wimille, and is based on the world's fastest convertible - the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.

Fittingly, it's finished in a paint scheme reminiscent of Wimille's own racer, a 1939 Bugatti Type 57C Tank, which was also on hand for the Monterey debut. Bearing blue carbon fiber and Wimille Bleu paint, it looked striking under the bright blue skies of Monterey. The powertrain, a quad-turbocharged, 16-cylinder monster, will remain unchanged for the Legend cars.

We've got a pair of galleries of the latest limited edition Veyron - up top, we have live shots of the first Legend car, while the bottom are images direct from Bugatti that show the car alongside Wimille's own Type 57C Tank, along with some cool historical images. Check 'em out.

      If my math is correct, this is the 28th time Bugatti has released a special edition Veyron. FFS, build a new car already.

      The Bugatti of today shares nothing in common with the cars from it's glory years. Bugatti's used to be some of the most beautiful cars but everytime I see a Veyron I'm shocked at how lazy and uninspiring the design is.

        Nobody does beautiful these days (well maybe Aston& Jag). Most cars are designed to be either brutal or weird; sometimes brutal and weird together. But never beautiful like the older stuff.

          Audi does beautiful. For the simple fact you did not mention Audi makes your post nonsense.

      Isn't ever Veyron a 100% custom commission, thereby making them all special editions?

      I'm gonna have to jump on the bandwagon as well and say that this shouldn't be "news" anymore. Bugatti is the equivalent of a celebrity in People's magazine: every time they put on something new, it's "news". I understand the car is a beast, but c'mon... can we get another CAR instead of another "edition"?

      My goodness how far beyond over is this car already?! Move on Bugatti - painting it different colors does not equal a new model. Bored to tears with seeing this thing anymore.

      A "Legend" in their own mind.

      Instead of making this decidedly ugly "edition" they really need to make a concept of the sketch in the backdrop. I can see some beautiful potential in that and honestly, Veyron "editions" are getting tired. A few baubles and a different yet same paint scheme is getting old.

      Move on (Bugatti). Nothing new to see here (from Bugatti).
