The Bleu Centenaire wasn’t the only limited edition Veyron on the floor at the Geneva Motor Show.
While Bugatti has created a wide array of individualization programs for its supercar, German tuner Mansory saw fit to create its own and displayed a revised version of the Veyron dubbed the Linea Vincero.
Unlike the other Veyron models, the Vincero comes with a power upgrade, up to 1109 bhp and 967 lb-ft torque, thanks to an upgraded cooling system and exhaust system.
Exterior modifications include a new front fascia, smaller hood, striking front apron, newly developed side skirts, a diffuser, larger air outlets and new forged wheels.

Rolls Royce officially unveiled its 200EX concept in Geneva this week as the precursor to the fourth model in its lineup and the first not based on the immense Phantom.
The 200EX is just a concept but this fall the production version will be revealed with a proper name, one likely to start with Silver.
The styling is quintessential Rolls, pulling all the best cues from the Phantom and Drophead Coupe and fitting them into a decidedly smaller package.
The Geneva Motor Show is one of the 5 major auto shows in the world, the only one in Europe that takes place every year, always in early springtime.
Rolf Studer, General Manager of the Show, said: “We know it is of key importance to offer automobile manufacturers an attractive platform which guarantees them an opportunity to efficiently present and communicate to the rest of the world.
Every year we welcome some 10,000 media representatives and more than 700,000 visitors, of which 37% come from more than 110 countries.“
This year, the 79th edition will open to public from March 5 to March 15, but there are already shows and exhibition for press.
We have selected for you some luxury car models.

Two new performance machines were just announced in South Africa in the past weeks.
Earlier we saw the covers come off the oddly-named Barnard supercar, an ominous, all-black Le Mans style racer with the heart of a Porsche. Today we have the first details about the Perana Z-One.
Zagato, a design and engineering services company located just outside of Milan, has teamed up with South Africa’s Perana Performance Group to build this sweet looking car which will be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show next month.
