[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.

2007 Tokyo Auto Salon - Part 5

We're psyched now that we can finally talk about our favorite vehicles of the 2007 Tokyo Auto Salon: the style wagons. These pimped-out minivans were our favorite part of the 2005 Tokyo Auto Salon, and after the disappointingly small number of VIP vans at the '06 show, we thought that the trend was dead. It turns out that the pimp-wagon scene was just resting, as VIP vans seemed to dominate the 2007 show. So what makes a minivan a "style wagon"? Basically, a style wagon is a VIP-styled minivan. As is the case with VIP sedans, most style wagons have a simple white or black paint scheme (though silver is also acceptable), tasteful aero kits, large chrome wheels and no fender gap. Within the style wagon scene, the main vans of choice seem to be the Honda Odyssey, Nissan Elgrand and the Toyota Estima. Though Americans would look at any of these rides as "just a minivan", the massive size of these vans allows Japanese tuners to let their minds run wild. Though t
