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.

Updated 09/05/2011: The latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage features one of the most impressive Veyrons recently launched on the market: the L’or Blanc. Hit the jump for the video and find out if Jay Leno was impressed by the porcelain elements for exterior and interior design.

Updated 04/30/2012: Bugatti has unveiled a new video presenting the development process behind the Veyron L’or Blanc - the car build to mark the start of a partnership between the Royal Procelain Manufactory Berlin and Bugatti.

I would like to note the very impressive graphics on its platform. Its very interesting but I still prefer the simple Veyron compared to this one.

Its one-of-a-kind design makes it hard for me to look away from it. Bugatti never fail to surprise us with their exquisite concept.

I really like the design and style of Bugatti, very static. They are so stunning and fascinating in both exterior and interior design. It would be really great if it has an impressive
high-powered engine system. I expect to see more tune up versions of this veyron.

I still prepare the simple one. However, I also find it impressive and very artistic on that graphics. Anyway, is it already on the market?

hmm. The Veyron looks aggressive and sporty with its traditional look and no need to add a blue swirl paint on the body. Well, I guess they focus more on the porcelain interior of the car!

I must say that I really love the artistic body paint of this one and its stripe blue-and-white color is absolutely looking great and awesome on it, and for the fact that it is a Bugatti car, I’m expecting it to be powerful.

Now look how unique and techno type this car. I like the painted design of the car, it gives more live and value. Significantly contains great concept and idea. It look precisely perfect not just the design but its overall package.

The style is like a tiger. But I dont know if the performance of this car is like a tiger. I want to watch the performance of this car in live. I hope someday.

Really great design of car. It’s like a tiger if this car is on the road. This car is one of the best car in Bugatti.

I really love the thin whit lines flow over the blue exterior and the porcelain is used for the inlays of the center wheel badges- definitely one of the fastest convertible in the world.

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.

  (466) posted on 09.7.2011

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. 

  (569) posted on 08.26.2011

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

  (594) posted on 08.26.2011

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.

  (501) posted on 08.2.2011

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!

  (302) posted on 07.26.2011

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.
