All you need to know about Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport  Lor Blanc the worlds most expensive car.

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport L’Or Blanc is the result of an extraordinary collaboration between Bugatti and the Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin. It is not a series car, it was made only one.

This is the only car in the world that has porcelain on the inside and outside.

You can see the first porcelain signs on the logo which is 100% porcelain. Another spots with porcelains are the rim caps and gas cap. I don’t know if all the pieces are hand made but the logo sure is.

The car has 2 keys. One that you can use as a normal key to start the engine and another one to release all the horses, the speed key. The speed key adjust suspensions and aerodynamics.

L’or Blanc and the dancing elephant 

if you look carefully on the gas cap there is an dancing elephant. Is pretty slim but believe me it’s an elephant.

And it has a nice story. The younger brother of the founder of Bugatti is sculptor and the dancing elephant is one of its sculptures.

This dancing elephant could be found on the late 80’s on the radiator as an ornament.

Bugatti always wanted to combine unusual materials that you don’t see in a car in cars. So this car is kind a legacy.

Exterior 

All the lines on the exterior are painted manual. Don’t ask how much it took to draw lines like those.

A characteristic feature are the two air scoops on the left and right on the bonnet.

Interior

Inside the car we can find porcelain on the left side of console, the ashtray on the top of console and between the backseats there is a huge plate with the dancing elephant.

Bugatti L’Or Blanc – HOW IT’S MADE

The entire Bugatti existence was based on the fusion of art and the automobile. The exterior paint came from observing the craftsmen at KPM hand painting porcelain with great precision and accuracy.

They used longer lines to give speed, tension and grace. Depending on how the porcelain is processed, it behaves differently.

For the L’Or Blanc each production step was specially developed to ensure the highest quality and to realize exceptional shapes. The whole proces took several months. Every part had to pass impact testing and other tests like daily wear.

 Price – $2.4 million

The Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport is completely sold out.

The super-luxurious Veyron L’Or Blanc has been specially ordered by a UAE-based business man.
