Seems like a tad too expensive, right?
Yet that’s exactly the amount Bugatti is charging for this fashion accessory. In fairness to Bugatti, the belt does come with some nifty technological workings, particularly the use of equipment normally reserved for Swiss matches as integral components of its mechanism. On top of that, it’s been finished in three different, albeit all expensive finishes: white gold, rose gold, and a still-to-be-determined third series run.
The belt also has smoked sapphire crystals and over 100 handcrafted parts made from stainless steel, solid gold, and titanium. Needless to say, a ton of work was done by Roland Iten to turn this belt into a true showcase piece of wealth and deep pockets.
There are only 44 units available, although at the cost of one, we doubt if these belts will sell like ice cream on a hot summer day.

Bugatti unveiled the Veyron 16.4 in 2005. The Veyron’s first update came in 2009 when Bugatti revealed the Grand Sport version, and the latest came in 2011 when the Super Sport debuted.
The 16.4 version is powered by a monstrous 8.0-liter, W-16 engine that delivers a total of 987 horsepower. This amount of power was enough to sprint the car from 0 to 62 mph in 2.5 seconds, 124 mph in 7.3 and 186 mph in 16.7. Top speed went up to 252 mph - a speed that could be hit in just under a minute!
