Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport L’Or Blanc Concept

The world’s newest Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport has fittings made of—get this—hand-built porcelain. Yes, the Grand Sport L’Or Blanc is officially a 407 km/h tea tray. Fresh on the heels of Bugatti’s announcement that they have completely sold out of the original Veyron coupe, this week Bugatti released a one-off special edition that they reckon is the “first motor car to wear the finest porcelain on its body, as well as in its cabin.”

But hold on, teacup aficionados: Bugatti hasn’t created, say, a porcelain multi-link suspension. Porcelain fittings on the car are limited to non-structural pieces: the EB badge on the rear, wheel badges, and the fuel filler cap. Inside, a number of panels have been replaced with porcelain, a number of which carry the relief of a standing elephant as sculpted by Bugatti founder Ettore Bugatti’s brother, Rembrant Bugatti.

The one-off car is also equipped with a “precious” dish at the top of the center console, which can be removed and—get this—become part of a specially designed porcelain picnic set. The set and all of the fittings were designed, built and fitted by German porcelain house KöniglichePorzellan-Manufaktur Berlin (KPM).

No word from Bugatti on if the porcelain fittings have any effect on the Grand Sport’s indicated top speeds of 407 km/h with the top up and 360 km/h with the top down, but Bugatti says the radical, hand-painted blue and white scheme is reminiscent of Italy’s Stelvio Pass, so don’t expect any noticeable change in the Grand Sport’s legendary handling.
