With hand-crafted carbon fiber pieces and an LED “V” in the front bumper, the Bugatti Veyron LINEA Vincerò by Mansory was one sweet looking ride. Its tremendous power bursting with 1109hp wasn’t anything to frown upon either. Now, however, the LINEA Vincerò has just gotten a more impressive younger brother and this sibling is packing some serious style.
Following in the Bugatti Veyron LINEA Vincerò’s footsteps is the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 LINEA Vincerò d’Oro, which adds a special golden touch to the vehicle’s styling. It starts off with a carbon fabric with inbuilt copper thread and moves throughout the car with “turbine” design alloy wheels, a curved grill featuring the “Vincerò-V”, door handles, rear view mirror caps, and the fuel tank cap all dressed in a golden glow. Adding to the shimmering state of the Bugatti are gold headlight washer nozzle covers, gold borders around the daytime running LEDs, and gold decorative features on the roof.
We kind of wish we could say that was it, but there’s more. So much more.
Hit the jump for the full story.
Inside the Bugatti , the mood lighting system in the car’s seats, door trims, and dashboard all let out golden rays as they light up the already sparkling gold carbon appliqués as well as the specially embossed leather also in gold. To be honest, the leather actually looks more like crushed velvet in the picture which, ironically, seems more fitting for this chosen style. Gold alloys are also visible on the decorative strips of the door trims and on the center console.
Okay, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is a serious vehicle and adding gold here and there would make it stand out like no other, but we think Mansory may have gone a tad - okay a ton - overboard with the extensive amount of gold they spread throughout the car. Didn’t they ever hear the saying less is more?
Pricing was not released for these strictly limited series, but we can’t imagine a car decked out in this much sparkle is going to come cheap.
With the LINEA Vincerò d’Oro, MANSORY has completed its strictly limited series for the refined Bugatti Veyron 16.4. After the specialist for exclusive luxury vehicles raised the bar for high-performance sports cars by another level in March 2009, MANSORY is now placing the crowning glory on the art of refinement. Using targeted changes, MANSORY first transformed the Bugatti Veyron into the LINEA Vincerò and then, using a special gold-coloured alloy, into the unique LINEA Vincerò d’Oro.
Compared with the standard Veyron, the LINEA Vincerò has received a comprehensive facelift to its front, consisting of modified fenders, a shortened bonnet and a striking front apron. The LED daytime running lights and the stylised letter “V” (paying homage to the name Vincerò) built into the car’s front end are particular highlights of the new design while the newly developed side skirts form a visual and aerodynamic link between the axles. Larger air outlets at the rear and at the sides of the car ensure optimal engine cooling and, with the new diffuser, underscore the vehicle’s vibrant design. MANSORY manufactures almost all the components in the car’s body from ultra-light, high-strength carbon and the autoclave method of hardening under high pressure and high temperatures used during the manufacturing process makes a huge improvement to the quality of the materials. One unique feature of the design of the LINEA Vincerò d’Oro is the carbon fabric with inbuilt copper thread used by MANSORY, the metallic sheen of which really brings out the exceptional nature of this special car.
Other gold-coloured features complete the LINEA Vincerò d’Oro, including the distinctive “turbine” design alloy wheels, the curved grill featuring the stylised “Vincerò-V”, the door handles, the rear view mirror caps and the fuel tank cap. But that’s not all: the headlight washer nozzle covers, the borders around the daytime running LEDs and the decorative features on the roof all shimmer in precious gold too.
The car’s interior has an exclusive look and feel while remaining functional. MANSORY understands the importance of combining luxury and technology with the golden aspirations of this unique car. Traditional workmanship, fine materials and a stylistically confident design combine to create an interior that is fitting for such a classy car. You notice this in particular with the LEDs of the car’s mood lighting system placed in the car’s seats, the door trims and the dashboard. The entire passenger cabin shines in the golden glow of this feel-good lighting which masterfully draws attention to the high-quality carbon appliqués as well as to the specially embossed leather. The airbag steering wheel with inbuilt shift paddles and gilded elements, designed in a new ergonomic style, is both sporty easy to keep a good grip of. Gold alloys can also be found on the decorative strips of the door trims and on the centre console.
