A herd of Bugatti Veyrons (photos)

The Bugatti Veyron is a car you rarely see, if ever, but we came across three at the 2009 Geneva auto show. Each of these cars was a special edition variant of the original Veyron launched in 2005.

Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire

For Bugatti's 100th anniversary, the company created the Bleu Centenaire version of the Veyron, and showed it off at the 79th Geneva auto show. As with previous special editions, the Bleu Centenaire is cosmetic, with a custom paint job using a special shade of blue and combining matte and gloss elements.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport

The Grand Sport was launched at Pebble Beach in 2008, and is the open-top version of the Veyron. Rather than a convertible, the top panel is a piece that can be taken off, but can't be stowed in the car due to the lack of room. The windshield of the Grand Sport is also higher than that on the standard Veyron.

Bugatti Veyron Mansory Vincero

As if the Veyron weren't enough straight out of the factory, tuner company Mansory took three of them and added a carbon-fiber body kit, newly designed air intakes, and a custom interior. The $700,000 upgrade to the Veyron also includes custom wheels and a new exhaust system.
