Bugatti unveiled a unique creation in 2011: the Veyron Grand Sport L’Or Blanc, a hypercar crafted with exquisite porcelain details, earning its moniker “white gold” due to its dazzling appearance in sunlight.

With a staggering 1,000 horsepower, this remarkable vehicle stands as a testament to Bugatti’s commitment to innovation and luxury.

This unprecedented collaboration between Bugatti and the Royal Porcelain Factory of Berlin, renowned for crafting luxury tea sets, pushes the boundaries of automotive design.

Dr. Stefan Brungs, the former Director of Sales and Marketing at Bugatti, reflects on the unconventional choice of porcelain, stating, “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 realization of exceptional ideas while striving for the utmost in quality and aesthetics.”

The hypercar’s intricate porcelain features include the fuel door, caviar bowl, badge, wheel caps, hubcaps, and interior decor panels, elevating its craftsmanship to unparalleled heights. The rear panel showcases a relief of Rembrandt Bugatti’s iconic dancing elephant, adding a touch of artistic flair to this automotive masterpiece.

Despite its opulent design, the Veyron Grand Sport L’Or Blanc remains a powerhouse under the hood, housing an 8-liter W16 engine capable of producing 1,001 horsepower.

With acceleration from zero to 62mph in a mere 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 253mph, this hypercar offers an exhilarating driving experience unlike any other.

Bugatti has chosen to keep the identity of the individual who commissioned the Veyron Grand Sport L’Or Blanc a mystery, further adding to its aura of exclusivity.

However, the automaker has disclosed that the price tag for this one-of-a-kind masterpiece stands at €1.65 million, or approximately $2.4 million at the time of its unveiling. This staggering price reflects the unparalleled craftsmanship and innovation embodied by the Bugatti brand.
