Bugatti “White Gold” Supercar worth £1.6m Made of Porcelain

I want to write about something special about supercar. Actually, I had written about supercar on my hubs. But I don’t know how this hub seems special to me. The story was begun when I read the local newspaper yesterday. The big headline said “The supercar worth £1.6million made by porcelain”. It’s kind a joke or true. As we know, porcelain usually made for cups or plates. I can’t imagine when the supercar made by porcelain. Wow...this could be amazing concept and luxurious as well. I can’t wait for long and my detective instinct force to search more about this car. I want to know how this car attracted many people, even some people came from another countries to see this car from very close range.

A little history of Bugatti

Bugatti itself was well known for the beauty of it design. Who is the man behind this car? Ettore Bugatti is the man from a family of artists and he produced his first car in 1910 with his own name affixed to the grille. He won for the large number of races. The car was built by Automobiles Ettore Bugatti in Molsheim, near Strasbourg in France. Bugatti was a family business. Unfortunately, the Bugatti company closed its doors after World War II, where many European car companies struggled to survive. But, the luck still belongs to Bugatti. Volkswagen Group, a Germany car maker bought the Bugatti name in 1998. Volkswagen reopened the factory in Molsheim with new and modern facilities. This company promise to live up to Etttore Bugatti's standards. For the first masterpiece, the company built Bugatti Veyron 16.4 as a million-dollar supercar with more than 1000 hp, in 2005.

Bugatti Veyron L’Or Blanc or "White Gold" supercar

Let’s back to the topic. Bugatti Veyron L’Or Blanc is another masterpiece from Bugatti. This car was first presented at the Concours d'Elegance at Pebble Beach in August 2011 and Frankfurt show in September 2011. Bugatti Veyron L’Or Blanc was created in partnership with the Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin (KPM). This company was better known for making high-end tea sets. A burning process at 1200°C was used, completed by the application of five layers of lacquer specific and also the pristine material at various locations in the cabin. The ceramic material touched the dam water exterior details, engine house to rear wing. Some interior detail also got a touch of ceramics, such as: center cluster, door trim sectors and brake pedals. The whole body of the car looks like a beautiful ceramic, a unique blend of blue violet color with shiny white graphic in all ceramic body made this car looks luxurious and unique. Bugatti Veyron L’Or Blanc as a masterpiece and a tribute to the ‘Stelvio Pass’, a legendary stretch of road in Italy.

We can see from the picture inside the hub this car looks shiny and smooth from the outside. The ceramic materials also applied in exterior features, like: badges, filler caps and wheel caps. This car also called as “White Gold” super car as the first automotive application of the use of porcelain. This car was sold to a super-wealthy Saudi Arabian customer. It’s like “unusual idea” for the car use ceramic material. Titanium body, carbon or other metals may have been common in others car, but ceramic is the first applied in the Bugatti Veyron L'Or Blanc. Dr. Stefan Brungs, Director of Sales and Marketing Bugatti Automobiles said that the coating application is an unusual idea, moreover in the world's fastest convertible. Bugatti want to transform a unique idea into beautiful art, he also added.

Wow, the Bugatti Veyron L’Or Blanc is some car, pras, and this is some hub. Absolutely beautiful. I would buy one, of course, except I do not particularly like the oval center of the front of the car. It reminds me of the ill-fated Edsel. But Up on the article, my friend.

Wow! Car collectors would love to have this porcelain one in their garage...of that I am certain. Assuming I could afford it...which I surely cannot, I would be afraid to drive it on the Houston freeways or park it in any kind of a parking lot. Can you imagine what any kind of a repair bill would cost? I know...if you have to ask...you cannot afford it. Haha! Up votes and sharing so that others can drool over this beauty of a car.
