Europe seems to be in turmoil, U.S. is getting out of the worst depression but on this side of the Ocean it’s all bling!
A man from the UAE bought the world?s most expensive car. A custom made Bugatti L’Or Blanc ?for an estimated $2.4 million (Dh9 million). The vehicle is a special edition Veyron Grand Sport Bugatti L’Or Blank with porcelain accents, including a caviar tray. The car is painted white with royal blue lines curving along the exterior.
The car was introduced recently in Berlin, Germany.
The L’Or Blank is a joint creation of Volkswagen AG’s supercar brand and KPM, a Berlin-based 248 year old porcelain maker, which traces its roots back to King Frederick the Great of Prussia.
VW purchased Bugatti in 1998 along with the Lamborghini and Bentley to compete with Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW)’s Rolls-Royce. Bugatti, makes about 50 cars a year.
Leaving the bling and other opulent car installations aside, this ?white gold? car is so expensive because of some of its tasty other frills.
The custom-made Bugatti L’Or Blanc sedan includes one-of-a-kind porcelain interiors, including (of all things) a porcelain tray. Obviously fond of caviar, this UAE based businessman insisted on having a porcelain caviar tray installed. It can double up as a caviar tray, when used together with an ice bucket, which is part of a specially-designed picnic set.
There’s more – the vehicle has a white exterior with royal blue lines. It has also been fitted with porcelain wheel badges, fuel caps and oil caps. A panel that depicts an elephant standing on its hind legs, the Bugatti symbol, is mounted between the seats. A scepter, the logo of the porcelain maker – KPM (Konigliche Porzellan-Manufaktur) – given to the company in 1763, is inlaid at the top of the windshield.
The previous most expensive car was the Bugatti 300 Veyron 16.4s costing approximately $1.74 million
There is not much known about the anonymous owner. All that is known is that he has more than 200 cars.
Yeah it seems that a couple of the UAE billionaires would be able to adopt any country in Europe.
