Bearing blue carbon fiber and Wimille Bleu paint, it looked striking under the bright blue skies of Monterey. The powertrain, a quad-turbocharged, 16-cylinder monster, will remain unchanged for the Legend cars.<br /><br />We've got a pair of galleries of the latest limited edition Veyron - up top, we have live shots of the first Legend car, while the bottom are images direct from Bugatti that show the car alongside Wimille's own Type 57C Tank, along with some cool historical images.
