2011 Bugatti Veyron L'or Blanc

Now that the last unit of the Bugatti Veyron has been sold, the company is shifting its focus to the Grand Sport version with a new special edition. A special edition that, no doubt to overshadow the discontinuation of the Veyron model, has been developed with porcelain manufacturer Königliche Porzellan-Manufatur Berlin (KPM) and is the world’s first motor car to be dressed up in the finest porcelain. Prices for this unique model start at 1.65 million euro, or $2,385,000 at the current exchange rates.

Called the L’Or Blanc, this very special Veyron Grand Sport is a little more psychedelic than elegant with blue swirls painted on the vehicle’s white body. Bugatti designers used a precision tape made of delicate Japanese soft tissue which adheres perfectly to sulfur-containing plasticine. These designers were able to stretch the tape to a certain degree to create the swirls which are up to five meters long. It seems to be rather intricate work for something Austin Powers would drive, but apparently this color technique was chosen because of the way the light reflects on the car’s body.

In addition to the flowing paint job, the Bugatti Veyron L’or Blanc also receives twelve porcelain elements constructed of the finest porcelain at the Berlin based manufacturer. The porcelain is used for the inlays of the center wheel badges, the fuel filler cap, and the oil filler cap, as well as the signature "EB" badge at the rear.

The porcelain has also been used for the interior and can be found on the famous elephant sculpture that stands in an upright standing position. This sculpture was created by Rembrandt Bugatti and adds to the unique nature of the Bugatti Veyron L’or Blanc special edition.

Well, I was impressed with the updates in the details of this vehicle. The blue swirls desing on its body gives a refreshing look on the Veyron. Its kind of sad that we can’t see any production of this vehicle.

Its good to see a modified aerodynamic kit on this car. Hell, I was amazed in the sleeker and sportier version. Well, I guess there’s no reason to be sad for as long as there’s an aftermarket version we could still a production of this vehicle.

The blue swirls on the body of the of the Veyron really is kind of psychedelic! Well, I’m glad to see a newer look for this car. At least, the tuning company doesn’t stick on the two color combination like red-black theme for the paint job.

 The news about for the last unit of the Veyron was sold few months ago. I think there’s any reason to be sad on that thing for I believe that as long as there’s a tuning company, there’s greater chance that we can still see an available version for this car. 

IMO, I like to see this car on different styling. The design of the standard version is not that impressive.

I don’t get on why they have made a styling like this. I prefer that they have boost the figure performance of the car.

I just noticed that Bugatti never made the Veyron more sporty. I’m not saying that I like this version but I think the car look more alive with the zebra type paint job.

Although the production of this vehicle was already inactive. As long as there is an aftermarket company, I bet we could still expect more tuned up version for the Veyron. So, I guess we will not missed it that much!

Yeah , it looks like a Zebra, but it doesn’t matter for those who want to buy. For we all know, Bugatti is very famous especially their Veyron series. If you buy the car, you buy the name.

Looks like Bugatti is really shadowing their famous Veyron. This porcelain version is a dream come true for the one who rides it. Its almost a future car for us.

Well, no matter what color they put on this one, I would still be loving it. After all, this is the Bugatti Veyron, the world’s fastest supercar, that in itself definitely speaks a ton.

OK, I do like the Veyron for its coolness factor, but I really find this paint job on the weird side. What’s all the stripes for? It makes this look more like a zebra.

Heck! why do they need to put a retro-styled art on the body of the Veyron? It doesn’t look good at all and I think you could actually compared this one to the V8 vantage Blanc de Blancs ! I bet Graf Weckerle is responsible for this crap!

It looks like Bugatti really wants to milk the Veyron dry now. But I would say that this one might actually be rather good, I just love those blue stripes that they laid over the white overall color.
