Celebrating 100 years of making you hate your middle-class, middle-income life, Bugatti has unveiled the limited edition Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire. Usually we’d develop an instant hate for a performance vehicle finished in any type of fruity shade, (we’re looking at you, BMW Leguna Seca Blue) but we’re willing to let this one slide in much the same way you would overlook a zit on Heidi Klum.
Although many of us were expecting Bugatti’s 100th Anniversary edition to wrestle even more horses under the hood, the Veyron Bleu Centenaire is no more or less powerful than its fellow Veyron variants. Maintaining its title as the fastest production car in the world, the Veyron Blue Centenaire is powered Bugatti’s record-breaking 8.0L quad-turbocharged W16 engine and still churns out a whopping 1,001 PS/987 horsepower. All of the Veyron’s impressive track times still apply as well, meaning the Bleu Centenaire is capable of sprinting from 1-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in a mere 2.45 seconds while still maxing out at a top speed of 408.47 km/h (253.8 mph).
We don’t want to be a buzzkill, so we’ll spare you the brutal pricing details.
