The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport L’Or Blanc is being dubbed the world’s most expensive new car, costing the unidentified owner a cool $2.4 million (AU$2.33 million). The super-luxurious Veyron has been specially ordered by a UAE-based business man.
Featuring things like a porcelain caviar tray and a Swarovski crystal-encrusted number plate surround, it’s no wonder the car is attached to such a dramatic price tag. On top of this, the majestic revisions are made to a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport; the fastest drop-top supercar on sale.
Behind the cabin sits the famous 8.0-litre quad-turbocharged W16 engine producing 736kW of power 1250Nm of torque. Top speed is rated similarly to the normal coupe version of the Veyron (around 407km/h), but with the roof down, top speed is limited to 369km/h.
This exclusive one-off edition is something a bit different though. It was created in partnership with Bugatti and German porcelain company, KPM. It features a stunning white interior and a ‘White Gold’ exterior. There’s also a porcelain oil cap, wheel centre caps and a fuel filler cap.
Stefan Brungs, Bugatti’s sales chief, recently spoke about the car but he couldn’t reveal many details about the mysterious owner, only saying that he apparently owns 800 other cars. Brungs said,
“Installing porcelain in the world’s fastest convertible car seems like a pretty odd idea … but Bugatti has made a name for itself by not shying away from extravagant ideas. This is what Bugatti stands for: the realization of exceptional ideas whilst striving for the utmost in quality and aesthetics. This allows us to continue Ettore Bugatti’s heritage, who himself loved to experiment with new materials.”
