It’s been quite some time since Bugatti has unveiled any other car at these motor shows that isn’t a Veyron, opting instead to keep churning out special editions of their $2 million-dollar ride. While the variety leaves a lot to be desired, we don’t really have a problem with it because it’s, well, the Veyron.
So when they revealed today two special edition Veyron Grand Sport models at the Geneva Motor Show, none of us are complaining. The first of these two one-off Veyron Grand Sport models is the Royal Dark Blue, which if you’re curious to know, already has an owner who paid an impressive 1.75 million euros for the supercar.
The Royal Dark Blue Veyron Grand Sport features a carbon fiber made bonnet with a monocoque and rear section that’s painted in Royal Dark Blue, the same color as the air intakes and most of the grilles with the exception of the highly polished radiator grille. The central part of the car is painted in Arctic White.
On the interior, the dashboard, center console, seats and interior trim panels are all made of dark blue Indigo Leather, while the steering wheel, seats, center console and gearshift knob are painted in white.
Press release after the jump.
On the first of the two Grand Sport models exhibited in Geneva, the bonnet, monocoque and rear section are made of carbon fibre tinted in a Royal Dark Blue colour that shows off the lustre of the fibre. Air intakes and all grilles (except the highly polished radiator grille) are likewise finished in Royal Dark Blue, creating a striking contrast between the central part of the car and the Arctic White side panels. The inner sides of the horseshoe-shaped spokes in the wheel rims are also painted Royal Dark Blue. The EB logos on the wheels, and fuel and oil filler cap are still made of polished aluminium as usual. The characteristic Bugatti two-tone colour scheme thus extends down to the last detail.
The combination of blue and white is also found inside the cabin. The dashboard, centre console, seats and interior trim panels are all made of dark blue Indigo Leather, with white stitching on the steering wheel, seats, centre console and gearshift knob making a striking contrast. The quilting pattern gives the vehicle’s interior a dynamic look in keeping with its performance. The car has already been sold for 1.75 million euros (ex works).
