A special edition that, that no doubt overshadowed the discontinuation of the Veyron model, developed with porcelain manufacturer Königliche Porzellan-Manufatur Berlin (KPM) , the world’s first motor car to be dressed up in the finest porcelain.

Prices for this unique model started at 1.65 million euro, or $2,385,000.

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 When you are revving this ride up with its unique speed key.

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.
