While it wouldn't be fair to say it stumbled upon it, having invested unprecedented amounts to develop the Veyron in the first place, Bugatti has certainly arrived at a winning formula with its special editions. Take on the world's most expensive and desirable supercars, give it a special paintjob and name, and presto! You've got a multi-million-dollar prospect on your hands of which collectors just can't seem to get enough.

If that was the case with previous special-edition and one-off versions of the Veyron – and there have been many – it certainly applies to the company's "Les Legendes de Bugatti" line. The series pays homage to six legendary figures from the marque's history, each honored with a run of three special versions of the Vitesse roadster done up in their name with a unique color scheme inside and out. It started with the Jean-Pierre Wimille edition at Pebble Beach in August and continued with the Jean Bugatti edition in Frankfurt, the Meo Costantini edition in Dubai and the Rembrandt edition (pictured above) at the Geneva Motor Show last week. That leaves two more to go, and now we now what to expect - or rather, when to expect it.

In correspondence with Autoblog, Bugatti confirmed that it will reveal the fifth model at the Beijing Motor Show next month, and the sixth and final version at Pebble Beach in August. But just what will they be? All signs seem to be pointing toward pioneered female racer Elisabeth Junek for one of them – likely the next – but if we had to guess, we'd suspect that the final version will honor Ettore Bugatti himself. We'll just have to wait to find out for sure, but whoever Bugatti names them after, you can bet they'll all sell out rather quickly.

      Buggatti keeps saying that this will be the final edition car, and this will be the final edition car. I say yeah right next thing you know we might see another edition somewhere down the road. I say kill the damn thing already it's like the iphone it's over rated.

      If they want to find a way to push the rest of the cars off the lot, just bump the final set to 1250-1300hp. Given it has all the latest titanium/forged component, pushing up an additional 4-8% in power is nothing it can't handle, and its decrease in reliability will never be noticed because it owner will at most push it to that limit once or twice in its lifetime.

      As the Legends edition ends, Bugatti will announce the Exclusive edition with 5 more cars..... please just retire the car.

      I love that they continue to do "Special Editions". Anything over yet another grey/black/silver 4 door look-a-like that, sadly, we mere mortals have been brainwashed into thinking is a hot-looking thing.

      With all that chocolate paint, this should be the Willy Wonka edition.

      Bugatti is like that one episode of The Simpsons where Marge keeps altering her one same Chanel dress to try to look different each time she goes out.
