As with the Transformers that inspired its one-of-a-kind paint job, this 2014 Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse is more than meets the eye.

Meant seen but also heard, but this special incarnation of the Bugatti Vitesse is powered by a quad-turbo W-16 engine mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission capable of producing 1,100 pound-feet of torque.

Able to go from 0-60 miles per hour in 2.6 seconds, 0-120 in 7.1 seconds and 0-180 in 16 seconds, this 1,200 horsepower Vitesse only has about 500 miles on its odometer, the majority of which were driven during testing.

The top car in the Bugatti Veyron bloodline, the Vitesse was the model that was used to set the record for the world’s fastest open-top production sports car with a speed of 254.04 MPH.

One of the very last of the Veyron’s 92-model production run, this particular Autobot-inspired automobile was commissioned with a contrasting blue livery that’s detailed to display the logo from Transformers atop its carbon-fiber bodywork.

As if Decepticons and gearheads weren’t going to be targeting it enough already, That work is offset by a black undercarriage boasting diamond-cut wheels and a set of clear-glass taillights.

The two-tone theme is featured inside the Vitesse as well as out, as is the Transformers logo, which is inlayed between the seats of the convertible two-seater.

Powerful, rare and on the market, this unique 2015 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse will be crossing the block in early May at RM Sotheby’s Monaco auction.

Although no price estimates have been given, the car was previously listed for about $2 million last year when it surfaced in California.

Maybe Mark Wahlberg – who was forbidden from touching the Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse that was used in “Transformers: Age of Extinction” – will make a bid on it.
