When Bugatti revealed the Jean-Pierre Wimille edition Veyron Vitesse at Pebble Beach last month, the automaker promised it would be just the first in a series of new special editions to follow in the Legends series. And now the Alsatian automaker has announced that it will be bringing the second to Frankfurt this week.

Bugatti hasn't revealed much about which figure from its illustrious history the next Legend special will honor, or what color scheme will set it apart from any "ordinary" Veyron. But we do know that, as with the rest of the series, it will be based on the Vitesse model, which combines the best attributes of the Super Sport and Grand Sport models into the world's fastest roadster. We'll have more for you in just a few days, so watch this space as we pack our bags for Germany.

      I don't normally fall asleep at my desk, but when I do, it's because Bugatti is releasing a new special edition.

      Yawn. When is Bugatti finally going to produce a car other than the Veyron?

      I'm sorry, but if I am buying a car over a million dollars, I want to pick the colors myself. I can't believe this Legends thing actually works.

      Oh, joy. Yet ANOTHER iteration of a design that essentially dates back to 1999... Am I the only person that feel the Veyron is a dead horse that's been beaten beyond belief? Yes, I'm well aware of how incredibly awesome it is, but that doesn't change the fact that it's incredibly dated.

        Get used to it - they are going to keep building them until 2015. And everyone who wants one has already bought one, realized it was fun for a bit, then sold it again. So it will require increasing amounts of PR to get the remaining ones sold. The drawn out production is going to make for a sad end to a generally impressive machine. I think they should just be classy and stop the production.

        @Tangotx, I take it you've never heard of the SSC Tuatara. It does (or in this case, will do) with 8 cylinders what the Veyron does with 16. That is, assuming you're talking about top speed performance... which is about the only thing the Veyron is the "pinnacle" of. And if that's the case, look no farther than the Hennessy Venom GT, which already took that title from the Veyron back in April. Again, with 8 cylinders. So yeah, as I said before... dated. Next you're going to try to tell me how nimble a track car it is, right? Please, go down that path. Haha! It's actually not bad when considering just how heavy it is, but there are just better options (if performance is your goal) that have come about since.

        Dated really? What other auto has reached the pinnacle this one has? It could sit on it's A** for years and still be advanced

      They should have just done a limited run of the veyron to insure it's legacy instead of practically mass producing them. Now its grandeur seems so diluted.

        Mass produced? They are making less than 500 of them(I can't remember if its 350 or 450).

          Yeah, because Pagani hasn't done an endless run of 'special edition' Zondas either...
