2009 Geneva Motor Show – 100th Anniversary Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire
You can’t have a successful international auto show without including the Big Dog, the Bugatti Veyron. This year marks the company’s 100 year anniversary and so something special was in order. For the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, the Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire has been released. This is a limited edition, aka one-off model, painted in Bugatti’s signature blue with several unique attributes. The car appears to be mono-chrome but actually follows the company’s traditional two-tone approach by incorporating a “sprintblue matt” and “sprintblue gloss” finish.
Other external niceties on the Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire include a front mesh grill and side air intakes with a mirror shine finish, anodized-aluminum rearview mirrors and roof-trim-stripes, special Centenaire wheels and red brake calipers with Bugatti written across. The interior is rather regal with snowbeige leather covering the seats and center console.
The Bugatti’s powerplant remains unchanged. The monster 8.0-liter 16 cyclinder quad-turbocharged engine putting out 1001 hp needs no tweakage. The company does however debut some new features such as LED lighting, a rearview camera and parking assistance in the form of distance control. The Bugatti Veyron Blue Centenaire starts at 1,35 Million Euros.
