For the first time in eight years, Bugatti will be appearing at the IAA. To mark the occasion, Bugatti has brought a spectacular piece of automotive artwork: The Grand Sport “L’Or Blanc”, a one off vehicle created in collaboration with the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin (KPM), a historic porcelain company based in the German capital.
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 on the Stelvio Pass in Italy.
The “L’Or Blanc,” with its blue and white paintwork and the second red Grand Sport reflect Bugatti’s Tricolore concept for the IAA. However, these are just two examples from the diverse range of options available to Bugatti customers in the next few years. With the polycarbonate panorama roof open, the Grand Sport has a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph), while with the roof closed it can hit a maximum speed of 407 km/h (253 mph), not only making it the fastest convertible in the world but also the fastest super sports car authorised for use on public roads. So far, 42 orders have been placed from the limited run of 150 1001 hp roadster, which means there are still 108 available for any interested customers.
