Bugatti unveils Veyron Grand Sport L'Or Blanc

The fastest convertible in the world. Now with bits of porcelain.

This is a Bugatti Veyron with porcelain bits on it. Yep, we've had chrome-effect R8s, snakeskin-shod Escaladeswide-mouth Cayennes, but now there's this - the crockery-spec Grand Sport L'Or Blanc (White Gold to you and I).

Built in conjunction with Bugatti and chinasmiths, Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur (Royal Porcelain Manufactory Berlin) it was unveiled at a premiere ceremony in Berlin at the KPM workshops.

And according to Bugatti, the fastest production convertible in the world is the first car ever to wear porcelain inside and out. Which could be because people don't want bits of sculpted bog in their car.

Nevertheless, the wheel centres, fuel and oil filler caps, EB badge on the rump, centre console surround and rear interior centre trim are all rendered from china. Some even have relief elephants in them.

You might have also noticed the bad-trip paintwork, which has been applied to mimic the reflections from studio lights on a normal Veyron.

Tempted by a Grand Sport L'Or Blanc (or GLOB, as we prefer)? It'll cost you £1.48m (that's 59 new Golf GTIs) and there's only one in the world. Be quick.
