Bugatti Veyron L'Or Blanc on the streets of Paris [videos]

This one-off Bugatti Veyron L'Or Blanc ("White Gold") was tracked down and filmed on the streets of Paris. Perhaps not the most exciting footage, but the car is a very special one-of-a-kind Veyron model that most will never see in their lives.

Wearing KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) license plates at the Hotel Plaza Athenee in Paris, the L'Or Blanc is a Veyron Grand Sport defined as the first vehicle to have porcelain elements inside and out.

Created with the assistance of Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur (KPM), the unique exterior panels had the finest porcelain worked into the body panels followed by several precision painters to lay down five layers of clear coat. The complexity of incorporating porcelain required several weeks of testing to determine the rate the porcelain would shrink when cured in a kiln at over 1200 degrees centigrade.

The L'Or Blanc is priced at €1.65 ($2.40 / £1.49) million.

A Hockney BMW is a work of art more for its own sake, rather than like this car. I'm not sure whether this is. This car is more a projection of expense and technology. Then again Damien Hirst encrusted a skull with diamonds and that was pretty cool. But that was about irony. http://www.damienhirst.com/news/2012/skull-at-tate I'm not sure whether this is.

I think this would confirm that you are indeed a MASSIVE cock.

Is this a good looking car? Distinctive yes, but good looking? No.

I think it is a good looking car. And certainly distinctive as you rightly pointed out. I also think the Panamera is good looking too. So perhaps I'm in the minority.

I have finally driven one of these ver easter. Afer having driven a few of its so- called competitors, I never expeced it to be all that it is, tbh. Therein lies the catch- it has no competiors, sure there are many cras that offer performance close to what is feasibly attainable by his car, by an average driver, but none offer the same feeling of confidence while doing so. The fact that it feels like you are in a higher-than-high end Bentley, but it is a car that can do what this does makes its insane price seem more than reasonable. The Blanc, however, would really be a thing of wonder to behold in person.

Overkill! Lots of money does not mean class.

Overkill is not enough when it comes to Bugatti. The brand was historically known to experiment with different materials like blue and green carbon fibers while the rest still use black. Porcelain painting will soon become the new fashion. Or Blanc is simple a work of art.

It's an expensive painting technology and will double up the car's cost. It's too exclusive and costly to become a fashion

Why anybody would want porcelain in their car, I do not know.
