This particular model in the images is called “1 of 1”. The design was created while collaborating with the customer himself. On of the request of the new owner was to include strong links to Bugatti’s history. There are a number of design features that are and will remain exclusive to this car only, such as the tailor-made exclusive black and yellow split, or the radiator grille in which the customer’s initials were laser cut, which was an extremely complex process.
“This Bugatti Veyron “1 of 1” model truly is an iconic car, which has set benchmarks in many respects”, said Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. “In addition to the certainty of owning the world’s fastest production sports car, exclusiveness is extremely important to our customers. This is the reason that we have always placed so much focus on customisation and personalisation at Bugatti.”
