2009 Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire
This year's Geneva Motor Show had plenty of surprises and a wealth of breathtaking new automobiles on display, but it also had its share of disappointments. Bugatti, for example, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. But instead of marking the occasion in the grand style we expected, Bugatti simply slapped a fresh coat of paint on an existing Veyron and blew out the hundred candles on its cake. Called the Bleu Centenaire, the special Veyron is differentiated from its "ordinary" counterparts (if you could apply the term to a seven-figure supercar) by a special French Racing Blue paintjob in tone-on-tone matte and glossy finish, complemented by special wheels. Only one will be made, but then just about every Veyron to roll out of Bugatti's Molsheim factory is different from every other.
