The bronze Rembrandt Bugatti makes world premiere

Bugatti is continuing its six-part edition series, "Les Légendes de Bugatti", at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show to honor the important people in the company's history based around the Veyron supercar. Last year, Buggati successfully presented the first three Legends models. Now, the French automaker revealed its fourth Legend model – the Rembrandt Buggati. Buggati is the brother of company founder Ettore and one of the significant sculptors of the early 20th century.

The body of the Rembrandt Bugatti Legend Vitesse was designed in the “horizontal split” and is composed of bronze-colored clear-coated carbon as a reference to that artist’s favorite material. The vehicle’s lower half has an elegant brown, “Noix”, paint finish. The Bugatti horseshoe shimmers in platinum from the front grill. The wheels of the vehicle are painted in dark “Firefinch” and light “Noix” brown color. The petrol and oil cap of the vehicle has Rembrandt Bugatti’s signature.

The door trim has contrasting colors of “Cognac” and “Coffee” leather. The steering wheel is incorporated with a platinum EB logo. The center console has a bronze-colored clear-coated carbon with the lettering "Les Légendes de Bugatti" and Rembrandt Bugatti's elephant.
