According to the French automaker, the inspiration for the study was “Bugatti’s outstanding history of success in motorsport racing.” The Bugatti Veyron was launched in 2005 with the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport released five years later. In addition to displaying the original concept at Retromobile, Bugatti will have a display wall featuring the original configurations of the 300 Veyron coupes that have been sold.
