Bugatti Veyron L’or’ blanc PorcelainBugatti Veyron L’or’ blanc Porcelain version, with body trimmings and cabins fittings of porcelain
We have earlier seen customized Bugatti models in the form of Bugatti Veyron Pur Sung, that came with a 2 tone aluminum and carbon theme, and limited edition Pink Bugatti Veyron used by Japanese street wear Bathing Ape for its promotional activities. Now, the latest addition is the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport with porcelain trimming on its body and even inside the cabin.
Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport L’Or Blanc
World’s first vehicle to feature the finest porcelain on its body, as well as in its cabin
Created with the help of porcelain product manufacturer Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur, this limited edition Bugatti has been made by casting porcelain in the shape of the car’s body. Then a special variety of body paint has been used along with the dual tone blue and white exteriors which have been given a unique ‘in-motion’ styling.
Vehicle aficionados and car lovers, across the world, have already taken a liking to the styling quotient of the vehicle, but have asked questions on the use of delicate ceramics on the body of the world’s quickest convertible. Dr. Stefan Brungs, Director of Sales & Marketing, justifies the innovation by saying,
“But this is what Bugatti stands for: the realization of exceptional ideas whilst striving for the utmost in quality and aesthetics. This allows us to continue Ettore Bugatti’s heritage, who himself loved to experiment with new materials.”
Looking back at some previous examples we earlier shared, it clearly brings forth that this company isn’t new to the idea of using exotic materials for its cars, creating a new wave of design and technology in the automobile world, and adding to the exclusivity of its vehicles such as this one.
This one-off edition of the Veyron Grand Sport will be open for sale at the KPM Workshop in Berlin, Germany for a price tag of $2.39 million. But we all know that irrespective of the price tag, exclusivity will drive automobile lovers towards this vehicle.
Superyacht- Arcadia 85Arcadia 85 super-yacht which has modern amenities but low carbon foot-print.
While the moneyed and uber-rich splurge on luxuries and various customizations of their travelling vehicles, one thing which still has a long way to go is the concept of using eco-friendly technology in these vehicles. For those limited number of people who like a combination of eco-friendly technology and luxury travel, we have earlier covered the Palmer Johnson super yacht and the 006 super yacht, which have been models of eco-friendly luxury cruises, and adding to it is the Arcadia 85 super-yacht that has a negligible carbon footprint without compromising on luxury features.
The Arcadia 85, which is the second model from the yacht maker Edmiston & Company, allows holiday makers to undertake perfectly luxurious cruises, without leaving behind much of a carbon footprint. The yacht measures a total of 85ft in length, with a room to accommodate at least eight people at any given time. To power its battery recharging, air-conditioning, pumping, refrigeration and lighting, solar panels are placed at the rooftop, which generate the clean form of energy to power the functionalities of the boat. The fuel used to propel the engine is also organic in nature, which gives the power to reach a top speed of 18 knots to this boat.
Amenities on board include a spacious saloon in the top deck which is the main sitting area and entertainment area. The décor all around has been done up with a contemporary touch, with electronic sun blinds and floor to ceiling windows for super insulation. Among the “organic” amenities include the delicacies which the chef cooks up, but with organic ingredients, and the toiletry products feature a similar characteristic. For adventure water sports, the yacht has equipment including two seabobs, a PWC, two towable tubes, and snorkeling gear. In order to relax, one can use the full-beam master suite, or VIP stateroom, or even the two twin staterooms. The technical components to power this luxury boat include two Man R6 720HP engines, two Kholer 20KW power generators, a 120,000 BTU Condaria air-conditioning system and the unique Rodriguez Marine stabilizing system which gives the option to stabilize the boat comparable to zero-speed movements.
To hire this super yacht, one would have to shell out $70,172 a week apart from food and amenities.
