Many manufacturers are bringing out special edition models recently and car makers, Bugatti, have unveiled a special edition Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse model dubbed 'Lang Lang' in honour of classical music star pianist Lang Lang.

The Bugatti Veyron Lang Lang specs

 

The Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the special edition model is based on has a top speed of 254mph. It's powered by a more powerful version of Bugatti's eight-litre W16 engine, generating 1,184 brake horse power and 1,500Nm of torque. The vehicle has a claimed 0-62mph time of 2.6 seconds.

 

The Bugatti Veyron Lang Lang styling and technically

 

The new special edition model's styling was inspired by a grand piano which is why the exterior is finished in black and white. The black elements are exposed carbon fibre, while the white colour is called Blanc Atalante. For an extra touch of luxury, the EB logo at the rear and EB tags on the fuel and oil caps are plated with 24 carat gold. Black Sang Noir diamond-cut rims complete the look.

 

Inside, the model is dominated by the keyboard theme, with seats, roof liner and footwells covered in black leather. In contrast, the bolsters of the seats, steering wheel and gear selector feature white stitching, while the doors are covered in white leather overlayed with black stitched lines intended to resemble a musical stave.

 

Added touches include a piano-black finish to the EB logo on the white rear centre storage box, and a gold plated EB logo and ring on the steering wheel. Lang Lang's signature is also incorporated into the car's footwell, as he signed the car after giving a concert at Bugatti's factory in Molsheim, France.

 

Other Bugatti models due this year

 

The Lang Lang special edition is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, however it does not form part of the Bugatti Legends series. The Legends series is to feature six specials which commemorate people who have played a significant role in Bugatti's history, so far three have been revealed; Le Mans winner Jean-Pierre Wimille, former Bugatti racing chief Meo Constantini and Jean Bugatti son of the firm's founder.
