A Rare Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Could Sell for $3.2 Million

If you can’t bear to bide the short few weeks until Bugatti is set to unveil its next hypercar, you’re in luck. A striking example of one of its earlier models is about to go up for grabs.

RM Sotheby’s will auction off a striking 2014 Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse during its Cliveden House sales event in Berkshire, an hour’s drive from London, England, next week. The stylish speed machine is a fully loaded example of what was once the world’s fastest convertible.

The Veyron, Bugatti’s first modern-day hypercar, debuted in concept form at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1999. The model wouldn’t go into production for six more years, but when it did it was an able spiritual successor to cars including the Type 35 and Type 55 “Atlantic.” Its design combines a head-turningly curvaceous body with a boundary-pushing W-16 engine. The automaker went on to build 450 Veyrons over the next ten years, only 92 of which were examples of the vehicle’s final variant, the targa-top Grand Sport Vitesse.

There are some rather outlandish Veyrons out there, but this example is about as tasteful as they come. Chassis No. VF9SV25244M795046 features a two-tone finish that combines blue- and black-tinted exposed carbon fiber and rides on gloss black wheels. The color combination is bold—especially because the exposed carbon gives the vehicle an almost iridescent quality—but it really works here. The car’s Tangerine leather interior is just as eye-catching, broken up only by black accents and even more exposed carbon-fiber trim. The listing says the car has over $400,000 worth of factory add-ons, too.

Like every other Grand Sport Vitesse, this example is powered by a mid-mounted quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 that produces 1,167 hp and 1,100 ft lbs of torque. Thanks to all that power, the car can rocket from zero to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds and to a top speed of 255 mph, which briefly made it the world’s fastest open-top production car (the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder beat its record in 2016). The example up for sale has had just two owners, who’ve put just 2,538 miles on the car over the past decade.

This Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is scheduled to cross the block on Wednesday, June 12. Unsurprisingly, considering its appearance and condition, RM Sotheby’s has quite high expectations for the vehicle, which it expects to sell for between $2.55 million and $3.2 million.
