BEIJING — The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse Legend Black Bess is priced at $2.97 million, making it one of the most expensive and exclusive cars on the planet.

It debuted at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show.

The Black Bess Vitesse Legend model is limited to a run of three vehicles.

"Of the four Legend models already presented, all 12 vehicles have been sold," said Bugatti in a statement.

With most of the Legend models, Bugatti commemorated "the names that have shaped its history." But the Black Bess is inspired by a car. Black Bess, which was named after an English racehorse, was the name of a Bugatti Type 18 owned by French aviator Roland Garros. The original vehicle is now in a museum in the Netherlands.

The contemporary version features a black exterior and body components coated in 24-carat gold. The cabin includes sketches of the historic Type 18 Black Bess and Garros' airplane, a Morane Saulnier Type H. These sketches have been hand-painted onto the leather.

Power comes from a 1,183-horsepower quad-turbocharged W16 engine.

Edmunds says: Just a little something for car shoppers to dream about as they consider more everyday cars.
