Now that the Veyron 16.4 is gone, it’s the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport that gets all the special editions. Check out the magnificent L’Or Blanc.

Built in collaboration with German KPM, this Veyron GS uses porcelain elements for exterior and interior design to create an artistic appearance. Not to mention it is the first car in th world to features porcelain elements, and the first to feature an abstract design!

As part of the exterior design, porcelain is used for the inlays of the centre wheel badges, the fuel filler cap and the oil filler cap as well as the signature “EB” badge at the rear. Their shiny white surface blends in with the brilliant bright finish of the paint suggesting that the car would be coated with a thin layer of porcelain, too.

One cool features of the car is a a fine porcelain dish with edges finished in an exclusive diamond polishing – a technique that has been applied by the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin for the very first time. The precious dish can be removed and is part of a picnic set that was exclusively designed by KPM for the Bugatti car.

Apart from the amazing design, the rest of the car is identical to other Veyron Grand Sports. This is a one-off car for now, but they will gladly make you another one if you hand over 1.65 m EUR.

At first, it seems to be an unusual idea to use porcelain in a car, especially in the world’s fastest convertible,” comments Dr. Stefan Brungs, Director of Sales and Marketing at Bugatti Automobiles. “But this is what Bu- gatti stands for: the realization of exceptional ideas whilst striving for the utmost in quality and aesthetics. This allows us to continue Ettore Bugatti’s heritage, who himself loved to experiment with new materials.”

“The impulse for that partnership came from Rembrandt Bugatti’s renowned elephant,” tells Joerg Woltmann, owner of the Konigliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin (KPM) and car aficionado. “At the beginning, we wanted to integrate the sculpture in our product range, then we thought about the potential for a comprehensive service and finally the synthesis of ideas led us to this outstanding Grand Sport.” Woltmann is enthusiastic about the “L’Or Blanc”. “A number of superlatives are associated with porcelain from the Konigliche Porzellan-Manufak- tur Berlin: one says it has the most beautiful shapes and decors, it has the hardest weight and the whitest tone. Now, it is also the fastest porcelain.
