You lucky soul

I hope you have taken pics of some exotic and rare motorbikes as well. I do see a cafe racer in the background of your first pic along with a Ferrari.

Lovely blue shade on the Zonda. Look at those pedals

Thanks for the kind words guys There are more to come. Here are a few photos from the Parade des Pilotes du Mans (Supercar Parade) during LeMans 2013. It's a pity it rained that day, and cloudy weather prevailed before. The cynosure was Peter Saywell's collection, the custom-built Pagani Zonda PS (in its second form) & Koenigsegg Agera R. Didn't hang around for long after the 918 Spyder was unloaded, had to catch a train. The 911 GT1 was on display at the Michelin stand at the 24h circuit.

Default Bugatti Veyron Legend 'Jean Bugatti' unveiled today

Bugatti has unveiled its second Bugatti Legends car ahead of the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

This is the second vehicle in this six-part edition pays tribute to Jean Bugatti, son of the company founder and creator of the Type 57SC Atlantic.
Production of the second model is strictly limited to a run of three vehicles, as it was with the first in the Bugatti Legend series

Finished entirely in black carbon fiber, the grille surround and EB badges are made of platinum, a first for Bugatti.
The black exterior, even with the use of a precious metal, is much more subdued than what we've grown used to with special edition Bugattis. Sporting a set of diamond cut, twin five-spoke wheels, the Legend Jean Bugatti features the designers signature in Arctic Gray on the gas and oil caps.

Following the inspiration of Bugatti's personal Type 57SC, the Veyron has a two-tone, brown-on-beige cabin, with what might be the coolest door inserts we've ever laid eyes on. Stitched into the leather is the silhouette of a Type 57SC. It is positively striking. Another nod to La Voiture Noire is the rosewood shifter, which so far as we know, is the sole piece of wood on this Veyron. The rest of the cabin looks bathed in what we imagine is some very, very fine leather.

Like the Grand Sport Vitesse Legend Jean-Pierre Wimille that debuted at Pebble, the "Legend Jean Bugatti" limited to just three models, with each retailing for 2.28 million euro, or just a hair over $3 million.

What a beauty. I always wanted to see bugatti in carbon black, and here it is. This may not even see india in its life. 3 million euro is almost 25 crores, and if someone decides to import it may go upto 50Crs.!!! Bugatti being the fastest car in production, what would be it's mileage. I'm just curious.

Leaving a few exceptions, I never really liked the dual-colour combinations on the Bugatti. I always like a single color over the entire vehicle's body.
And this is it, looks just beautiful in that black.

I wonder, are there any previous version Bugattis in India really ?

Hey Harish,
+1 to the black bugatti as you said.

I don't think a person capable of buying bugatti would mind its mileage, but it is around 10 -15 miles per gallon.

Hey Bhargav,

I second your opinion on the color combinations. This works well for bugatti IMO.

I have read of a bugatti spotted at hyderabad. There is a video in the youtube of the same. But not a 100% sure whether its come to stay in India.

A few Veyrons I have seen in Paris. Barring one, they are all special in a way.

- Centennaire Chrome Blue
- Grandsport L'Or Blanc (my absolute fave)
- 16.4 Coupe
- Supersport
- Grandsport Vitesse

I had a shoot at the Koenigsegg factory in Angelholm, Sweden a couple of days ago for my blog. 2 epic days spent in hypercar heaven to say the least. Did an interview with Christian von Koenigsegg, a man so humble, jolly and insightful. A souvenir of the whole thing in Agera #1.
