Bugatti has released a special insider peek into the elaborate Veyron L’or Blanc, an artisan masterpiece with porcelain accents. This one-off Bugatti Veyron kicks out 1,001 horses housed in a mix of aluminum and carbon fiber, finished off with the same swirl techniques employed by artists at German porcelain designer Konigleche Porzellan-Manfuatur Berlin (KPM).
The Bugatti Veyron L’or Blanc: An artistic interpretation. This video provides the background story into the development of the unique L’or Blanc
The exterior swirling on the L’or Blanc depicts the diligent attention to detail employed by those skilled in working with porcelain. Bugatti founder Ettore Bugatti greatly relished using and experimenting with new materials, so this model certainly stays true to brand heritage.
The video says that the Veyron L’or Blanc illustrates the birthplace of beauty and perfection, offering porcelain in a completely new context. The attention to detail and grace demonstrate the complexity of porcelain and the skill required to master its use. They share that porcelain is a very particular medium that can shrink considerably. Whether the luxury material is cast, molded or thrown—it will behave differently each time. For these reasons, it took months to create the pieces used in the Bugatti L’or Blanc, and they fit perfectly into the vehicle. They have been made to stand the test of time and gentle use, and will look fantastic for a long time before needing replaced.
Jewelry and functionality: Porcelain graces this very special one-off Veyron
Fine details of the porcelain Bugatti Veyron include the wheel center caps, fuel cap and several interior trims. Each piece was hand crafted by experts at KPM. The only existing L’or Blanc is spoken for, though another Bugatti with KPM porcelain accents did attend the 2012 Beijing Auto Show. That model has likely been sold, though it does show a potentially budding relationship between the maker of hypercars and the artisan porcelain company.
