When it comes to extreme hypercars like the Bugatti Veyron, the terms ‘limited edition’ or ‘special edition’ can indicate a one-off. The one-off Bugatti Veyron L’or Blanc, that radical porcelain lady, has inspired the creation of two other one-off versions: The Bugatti Veyron Le Saphir and the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse L’or Rouge. Tragically, none of the three are for sale–and likely will not be very often as they are coveted collector pieces.
Imagine the novelty of having such a rare one-off Bugatti Veyron in your collection. Automobiles like these rarely change hands, it is typically a death-do-us-part arrangement. The Bugatti Veyron Le Saphir Bleu was crafted in 2012 and is a super sport. The Bugatti Veyron SS held the title as fastest production car for many years before losing it to the aggressive Hennessey Venom GT. While there are other Super Sport Veyrons in the world, Le Saphir is the only one in existence with its color combination. It is an obvious nod to the mesmerizing swirls from the porcelain L’or Blanc, but with its own twist.
The Bugatti Veyron L’or Blanc completely captivated the automotive industry upon its unveil. The hand-painted detailing and extravagant and unprecedented use of fine porcelain culminated into quite a lovely machine.
The exterior of the Bugatti Le Saphir Bleu employs the same mix of carbon fiber and aluminum, but without the special porcelain touches. It would seem that perk is reserved only for the Blanc. Overall, the beast produces approximately 1,100 horses, which could effectively transform those lovely waves into a blur at high speeds. Will there be more swirly girls rolling out?
