The Bugatti Veyron L'Edition Centenaire in Racing Green Malcolm Campbell Model is a limited-edition supercar that was produced in 2009 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Bugatti's founding. It is named after Sir Malcolm Campbell, a British racing driver who set several world land speed records in Bugatti cars in the 1920s and 1930s.
The L'Edition Centenaire is based on the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, but it features a number of unique upgrades, including a more powerful engine, a revised suspension, and a more aerodynamic body. The car is also finished in a special Racing Green paint color that is reminiscent of the Bugatti cars that Campbell raced.
The L'Edition Centenaire is powered by a quad-turbocharged W16 engine that produces 1,200 horsepower and 1,106 lb-ft of torque. This allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 267 mph.
The car is also equipped with a number of advanced features, such as all-wheel drive, variable ride height, and a carbon fiber monocoque chassis. The interior is trimmed in high-quality materials such as leather, Alcantara, and carbon fiber.
The Bugatti Veyron L'Edition Centenaire is one of the most exclusive and sought-after supercars in the world. Only 20 units were produced, and they are all now worth millions of dollars.
