Bugatti files for Rembrandt patent
No, not the famous Dutch artist, but Rembrandt Bugatti – the younger brother of carmaker Ettore Bugatti who was named after the painter.
So why do we mention this, you ask? Because one of our readers just alerted us to a patent application with the European Union's Office for Hamonization in the Internal Market. It was filed by Audi's intellectual property office on behalf of its sister company and encompasses the name Rembrandt Bugatti.
Considering the family lineage, we'd guess that this will be one of the next special-edition Veyrons in the Legends series, following the Jean-Pierre Wimille and Jean Bugatti editions, and very well might revive the elephant emblem for what is likely to be a one-off based on the Grand Sport Vitesse. Of course, it could signal a new model altogether, but we wouldn't count on it.
