[VIDEO] Frankfurt: Bugatti Veyron Sport L’Or Blanc revealed

After presenting it earlier this summer in Berlin, Bugatti decided to take its L’Or Blanc or While Gold to the Frankfurt Motor Show, where it stood beside the drop-top version which is actually the world’s fastest convertible.
“The one-of-a-kind ‘L’Or Blanc” is the world’s first car to feature porcelain in both the body design and the interior. The impressive paintwork, which could pass for a piece of abstract art, is based on the roads of the Stelvio Pass in Italy”, as it is written in an official Bugatti statement.
The automaker says that under its hood the Veyron Sport L’Or Blanc is powered by an 8.0 liter, sixteen-cylinder, quad-turbocharged engine, which is delivering 987 horsepower and 1.250 Nm of torque or 922 lb-ft. Bugatti didn’t say if the added weight has affected the performance because we know that the “standard” model can reach a top speed of 407 km/h or 252 mph.
“In cooperation with the Konigliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin Bugatti turns a totally new page when it comes to creating pieces of automotive art. This is precisely what makes us stand out from other brands. We are not afraid of the extravagant idea to use porcelain in a super sport car. We love taking on new challenges and bringing those ideas to life in keeping with the high quality and aesthetics that Bugatti is known for”, said the President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., Wolfgang Durheimer.
Bugatti didn’t release too much info about its “new” supercar but one thing is for sure: its price – 1.65 million euros / $2.27 million dollars / 1.44 million pounds.
