The new special version is was named after Jean-Pierre Wimille, the driver who managed to win in 1937 and 1939 the 24 Hours of Le Mans in a Bugatti Type 57G Tank. On the outside, the model comes with some Le Mans inspired vinyl and some logos of the legend driver signature.

The engine resources are put to the ground via a seven-speed double clutch gearbox.
