Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 Grand Sport - Brown Carbon Fiber

from Bugatti Press Release

Quote:
The classic Grand Sport, a sports car with an elegant, artistic orientation, will, of course, remain in the range. Following the success of the L’Or Blanc (created in cooperation with Berlin-based porcelain makers Königlichen Porzellan-Manufaktur), Bugatti is currently working on further unusual ways to individualize the Grand Sport. In Geneva, the world’s most exclusive car manufacturer is presenting a version of the roadster in visible carbon fibre in a brownish finish for the first time. One challenge for the production is to give the visible carbon a transparent gleam while allowing the colour to radiate vibrantly in a certain light. On the Grand Sport presented in Geneva, the carbon parts made in the new colour “Brown” (lids, rear end, front spoiler and side skirting) shimmer in an almost bronze shade depending on how the light falls. To create a contrast, the side parts on this Grand Sport, right up to the rear air intakes, are made from polished aluminium. The interior of the sports car, with “Gaucho” coloured leather and dark stitching (colour “Coffee”), complements the exterior. It costs 1.79 million euros.
It looks rather like sh$t.

Near the middle of the middle of middle England.
Polished aluminium and brown? I guess you could call this a ...Polished Turd.

I can't believe there are that many rich people out there to buy so many versions of the Veyron.

I thought they stopped making them!

No the problem is like they said on T.G a few years ago. Volkswagen realized they sold this car at a loss and now they keep dreamimg up special versions to make up the money. Honestly why else would anyone make so many special versions of a car?

What do we care? It's always been a silly car made for the über-wealthy, this one probably to match the 2nd wife's $45,000 Hermès handbag.

Merde est le nouveau noir...

How can they be the world's most exclusive car company when they outsell the likes of Pagani, Koenigsegg and Spyker?

Exactly, they cost more, they sell more, they're more exclusive.

Marketeering logic. Not to be confused with reality.

I don’t want to be this person because I love the car. And I don’t have a problem with Audi wanting to recoup their money. Although I too thought they were only making a few. But the original and perhaps a few others were perfect. I don’t like the gilding of the lily here. It detracts in some way. Albeit from something that is of no real consequence to me.

They've got to be running out of colors so maybe it will end sometime soon unless they start going crazy with pearlescent paint. I predict they'll make a purple one and then be done
