It’s understandable that Bugatti’s Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Rembrandt Bugatti Edition will get a lot of the love at the Geneva Motor Show . But don’t start thinking that it’s the only Veyron in attendance because Mansory won’t have any of it.
That’s because the Swiss tuner brought its own Veyron to the party, or to be more specific, its new Vivere program for the mighty Bugatti supercar .
This isn’t the first time Bugatti has been the subject of Mansory’s tender love and affection. But unlike its predecessor, the Vincero , the Vivere is, shall we say, a little more comprehensive on the facelift front, even if there’s a conspicuous absence of any sort of engine upgrade.
Maybe Mansory forgot to add one, or it just thought the program was best suited for aesthetic and aerodynamic upgrades only. Either way, it sure does liven up the Veyron , even if "livening up the Veyron" doesn’t necessarily translate to a better program.

Given the nature on how Mansory builds its programs, the Vivere program for the Veyron fits right into the Swiss tuner’s wheelhouse.
Bold, striking and pretty expensive, the program succeeds in adding more luxury to the Veyron. Of particular note are the modified wings, the shortened bonnet and the striking front apron that now includes integrated LED daytime running lights in the front section and a stylized “V” that pays homage to the program’s name.
The kit also has newly developed side skirts, larger air outlets that optimize motor cooling, a new diffuser and two air intakes, all of which combine to create a seamless integration of all these carbon-fiber components. A new set of five-double-spoke design wheels round out the exterior package of Mansory’s Vivere program.
Far more than just giving the Veyron a fancy exterior package, Mansory also worked on the supercar’s interior. Traditional craftsmanship and hand-picked materials are staples of the Swiss tuner’s programs, and in this specific instance, Mansory also added LEDs that provide ambient lighting in the seats, doors and the instrument panel, allowing the whole compartment to glow in the light and accentuate the carbon-fiber applications and black-and-white leather fitted into the seats.

MANSORY are adding to their modified Bugatti Veyron 16.4 range with the VIVERE. After the exclusive luxury car specialist’s presentation of the VINCERO in March 2009, MANSORY dazzle once more with their artistry as a car modifier, and they have transformed the Bugatti Veyron into the strictly limited MANSORY VIVERE with a number of targeted touches.
Compared to its predecessor the VINCERO, the VIVERE has received a comprehensive facelift at the front, consisting of modified wings, a shortened bonnet and a striking front apron. The integrated LED daytime running lights in the front section create a particular accent, and the stylised “V” used pays hommage to the name VIVERE. The newly developed side skirts act as a visual and aerodynamic link between the two axles. Larger air outlets on the flanks of the vehicle and at the rear give optimised motor cooling, and together with the new diffuser and the two air intakes, they underline the transition from roof to bonnet on this powerful car design. MANSORY manufacture almost all the bodywork components from ultra light, highly strong carbon fibre. The hardening process employed, under high pressure and temperature in the autoclave radically improves the material quality.
Further refinements complete the VIVERE: Striking alloy wheels with a five double-spoke design harmonise perfectly with the production tyres, both visually and technically. The interior is exclusive yet functional. MANSORY know just how to combine luxury and engineering with the demands of an exclusive limited edition vehicle, in a harmonious way. Traditional craftsmanship, hand-picked materials and a confident design come together and create a car interior in a class all of its own. In this regard, the LED’s of the ambient lighting system in the seats, door furniture and the instrument panel catch the eye above all. The whole passenger compartment glows in the light from the courtesy lights, setting the high quality carbon fibre applications and the skillfully quilted black and white leather off beautifully. The new, ergonomically designed airbag steering wheel looks sporty with great grip.
