Bugatti Revives the Legendary Type 8 “Black Bess”

Luxury car company Bugatti revives the legendary Type 8 “Black Bess” as part of its exclusive six-part “Les Légendes de Bugatti” series. Famed as the fastest road vehicle of its time, the super sports car returns reimagined in a highly limited run of three with a retail price of a whooping €2.15 million.

As with all Legend cars, the “Black Bess” is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Vitesse. Its 1,200 PS, 8-liter W16 engines engine provides an unchallenged torque of 1,500 Nm at 3,000-5,000 rpm, with an acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 2.6 seconds.

This truly exceptional car can be seen alongside its historical counterpart at Auto China Beijing 2014, taking place from April 21 to 29 in the China International Exhibition Centre in Beijing.
