Some of these changes include having the EB logo engraved on the wheel hubs, rear bumper and steering wheel. The one-off coachwork is believed to be the last penned by Bugatti's son, Jean, before his death.

The car will be sold without a reserve price at the high-profile Concours d'Elegance event in Pebble Beach on 15/16 August. American Auction house Gooding and Company is handling the sale.
