Bugatti Launch £1.48 million Supercar With Porcelain Features

French supercar makers Bugatti have created a unique version of their flagship Bugatti Veyron, complete with porcelain elements, claiming it to be the world’s first vehicle to feature the ceramic material.

Unveiled last Thursday in Berlin, Germany, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport L’Or Blanc features porcelain in seven locations, including the wheel centres, fuel and oil filler caps, and a large “EB” badge on the back.

Arguably the stand-out feature is a porcelain dish in the centre console, which can serve as a caviar tray.

The car, which will be showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, was designed in collaboration with German company Royal Procelain Manufactory Berlin.

Dr. Stefan Brungs, Director of Sales and Marketing at Bugatti Automobiles, said: “At first, it seems to be an unusual idea to use porcelain in a car, especially in the world’s fastest convertible.”

“But this is what Bugatti stands for: the realisation of exceptional ideas whilst striving for the utmost in quality and aesthetics.”

Bugatti built the first Veyron 16.4 in 2005 and the last of 300 models of the limited series was sold last week.

The Grand Sport L’Or Blanc will be priced at €1.65 million (£1.48m).
