The last Bugatti Veyron may have been produced but that doesn’t mean the whole factory came to a dead stop.
Even quite a reasonable distance away from the uber-car maker’s future model, in the form of the Galibier’s factory version, the Royale begins assembly, the Molsheim based company is very busy.
Working with the one of the two models currently in production, the Grand Sport, they created an “even more special” edition of it.
Imagine that you live in a plain where even the Bugatti Veyron needs something to make it special. You can either get the Grand Sport convertible or the record shattering Super Sport coupe.
Now imagine some more, imagine that even these two models need something to make them stand out.
I’m guessing not all of you believe such a place could exist but, as it turns out, it does. Not only that, Bugatti claim it is right here on Earth where they had to make a unique version of the Grand Sport convertible Veyron.
This incredibly mind numbing beast is the unique Bugatti Veyron “L’Or Blanc” Grand Sport Special. For those of as unaware of the weird naming as me, it turns out it stands for “white gold”.
Don’t get repulsed just yet, the chaps at Bugatti weren’t as foolish as to plate the exterior of their incredible car with such a vulgar material. In actuality, the very special shade and color of the exterior and interior of the Veyron “L’Or Blanc” is obtained courtesy of porcelain.
After all, ceramics are used in car construction materials for some time now, why not explore some of its relatives?
Truth be told, it is very doubtful that a ceramics car is right around the corner or anything. On the even more important side of the story however Bugatti did this as a show stopper and I have to concede here; nobody could walk past it without turning their head or stopping.
Seing a Bugatti Veyron “L’Or Blanc” Grand Sport Special is something you jolt down in your petrolhead diary as a great day. The almost psychedelic design totally describes the technological and presence clout of a Veyron.
Dreaming over however, the harshness of reality strikes us when we read of the asking price this special edition demands. No amount of sugar can make it sound better, it is 2.4 million dollars, roughly the price of a Veyron SS.
