Bugatti has taken a second model to the annual Beijing Motor Show. Next to the local release of the fastest convertible on the planet, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, Bugatti released a second new model, an one-off called the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Wei Long 2012.
The one-off Grand Sport model “Wei Long 2012” was developed together with the Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur Berlin and has been fitted with dragon relief sculptures of the finest porcelain both on the body and in the cabin endowing the car with deep Chinese cultural heritage. The special model pays homage to the year of the dragon.
The use of porcelain is not new to the Veyron, the one-off L’Or Blanc received the same treatment. This special edition introduced last year was recently sold to a Saudi Arabian owner and spotted by our friend Alexsmolik in Paris.
The dragon sculptures are visible on the oil and fuel cap. Its white polished exterior is combined with a carmine red interior. The headrests are embroidered with the Chinese “Dragon” character, and the handcrafted 100% silk floor mats are embossed with Chinese “Dragon” character. The center piece has a white porcelain dragon relief. This one-off model will cost 1.58 million euros.
