2015 Bugatti Veyron Highlights
What makes the Veyron with chassis number 450 really different from the others in the lineup? The fastest production supercar ever has been customized to owner’s wishes. It is configured by a customer but the design concept of “La Finale” takes an inspiration from the appearance of the first Grand Sport Vitesse that was produced in 2005. Its style is considered one of the best examples of timeless car designs. The two-tone color scheme has been popular in Bugatti supercar models since 1920s. The Red&Black exterior mirrors the color scheme of the first Veyron. The final edition features for the first time clear-lacquered red exposed carbon fibre. The development team of the French manufacturer of luxury sports car uses this shade on the carbon-fiber bodyshell for the first time. In previous modifications the colors of the exposed carbon fiber panels were mostly black but there are examples of 6 more variations –intense blue, chocolate-brown, grey, green, violet and turquoise. With this range of colors the car maker has become a leader in offering a variety of exposed carbon fiber color options. The 2015 Bugatti Veyron La Finale has the door panels and side air intakes made from black exposed carbon fibre.
The red&black combination can be seen in the wheels design. The symbol of the Bugatti – the elephant, is featured on these parts of the vehicle. It can also be found on the fuel filling door and oil cap. “La Finale” printed letters are incorporated into the outer part of the supercar.
The leather interior sticks to the same color palette. The armrests, the control panel, the side bolster adjustments and the steering wheel edge are painted in red. Furthermore, red exposed carbon fibre adorns the center tunnel, the center console, the panels for doors and seating shells.
