The fastest open-topped car in the world. Now available in yellow and carbon fiber.
There are super cars, then there are hyper cars, and then there’s the Bugatti Veyron. No other car is on the same level of technology, engineering, and performance as the Veyron. Plus, its price tag sets it in a league of its own. But, if you buy a car like the Bugatti, it’s not to blend in with the crowd, which is why the French automaker provides customers with an array of outlandish and conspicuous custom-tailored options.
One of these unique, show-stopping color schemes is the yellow and carbon fiber combination that was unveiled on the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport at the 2012 Qatar Motor Show. While many of the automaker’s historic models are known for their striking “Bugatti Blue” exterior color, Ettore Bugatti loved to experiment with different color schemes and combinations to create memorable cars.
That same idea is still ever present today as the automaker offers one of the largest color palettes in the world for customers. Their latest version of the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport that debuted at the 2012 Qatar Motor Show uses two of Ettore’s favorite colors: black and yellow.
The new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport was given a horizontal color split of yellow and visible carbon fiber. The entire top half of the car was painted bright yellow with black carbon fiber framing, while the bottom was left with visible carbon fiber. Even the wheels were given a black finish to match the exposed carbon fiber bottom.
The same combination was carried over in the interior. Both seats were fitted with yellow leather and black stitching along with the doors and lower part of the cabin. The center console contrasts the yellow with bare carbon fiber. The steering wheel, gear shifter, and dashboard are all finished with black leather and yellow stitching. Each door panel features a glossy black finish and black handles and buttons.
Each of the yellow and black Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport models will be available for 1.58 million Euros (+/- $2.08 million). With the top on, the 1,001 horsepower, quad-turbocharged W-16 Grand Sport is capable of reaching a top speed of 252.98 mph (407 km/h) and 217 mph (350 km/h) with the roof removed.
Each of the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sports will be hand built at the Bugatti headquarters in Molsheim, France. Customers can custom tailor their entire car to suit their personal tastes with the help of the Bugatti Design and Engineering teams. Currently, all of the original 300 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Coupes have sold out. Of the 150 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sports to be produced, only 105 orders remain open. The standard Grand Sport model is priced at 1.4 million Euros (+/- $1.85 million).
