The L’Or Blanc is finished in white and blue, and it was based on the Grand Sport. This Shanghai car is obviously black on red, and based on the much faster Grand Sport Vitesse.
So what is this Veyron? It is possible that Bugatti has commissioned it especially for a very wealthy Chinese client. It is also possible that this wealthy client had the job done himself in China. Chinese car buyers, of any kind, are perfectly able to do this sort of thing, to any kind of vehicle.
It is certainly a job very well done.
Power Talk! The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is powered by the engine from the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport; a quad-turbocharged 8.0 liter W16 with 1200 hp and 1500nm, good for a 375km/h top speed and a 0-100 in 2.6 seconds. The black stripes on this particular car will make it faster still.
