Given the way news has been coming from Brazil, you’d be forgiven for thinking the wheels in attendance at the Sao Paulo motor show were all of the small, practical and affordable variety. But with the car market there being one of the biggest on the globe, we’re sure even something as lavish as this one will find homes (or mansions, or palaces).

Bugatti certainly thinks so. You’re looking at the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Rafale, a one-off which marks the introduction of the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse (the car on which it’s based, and itself a Grand Sport with the engine from the Super Sport) in Brazil. The special edition gets its name from that colour, ‘Gris Rafale’ – or Gray Burst in French – which is complemented by blue carbon accents on the roof area, air scoops, air brake and some parts of the back . The interior reverses the colour combo, getting blue leather and gray stitching.

Engine’s the same 8.0 litre W16 with four turbos that produces 1,200 hp at 6,400 rpm and 1,500 Nm of torque between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm. The fastest open-top production car in the world takes 2.6 seconds to get from a standstill to 100 km/h and is capable of 410 km/h. In handling mode, the car is limited to 375 km/h. Those are some otherworldly figures, I’m sure you’ll agree.

But none so otherworldly as the price. Now, the regular Vitesse already costs a bank-breaking €1.69 million (RM6.69 million); so how much do you think you’d have to fork out for one in a special colour? The answer’s €1.9 million (RM7.5 million).
