Following in the footsteps of its previous Pur Sang model, Bugatti has added another ‘special edition’ variant of the Veyron to its lineup and this time ‘round it’s called on French design house Hermes to lend a hand. The result is a supercar with super-exquisite fashion street-cred, but no new performance upgrades.

The latest model is called the ‘Bugatti Veyron Fbg par Hermes’ and it represents the culmination of a partnership that stretches back almost 80 years. Its odd name ‘Fbg par Hermes’ refers to the historic Hermes headquarters on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore (the Fbg being short for faubourg), which used to create custom interiors for many of Ettore Bugatti’s creations during the 1920s.

Leading the work for the Fbg par Hermes was head designer Gabriele Pezzini, whose team has created a traditional two-tone carriage work that celebrates 1924 Bugatti Type 35. Key features are the unique color of the hood, which extends to the interior of the cockpit and re-emerges at the level of the rear wing, eight-spoke polished aluminum wheels with central butterfly wheel locks branded with the letter H and air vents around the edges mimicking Hermes saddle-stitching, and a new grille and fuel-filler cap.

The inner surfaces of the car, including the brushed aluminum dash, have been fitted with calfskin leather, the door handles replaced with Hermes-luggage style units, and a new leather case is installed in the trunk.

The Veyron’s mechanicals have been left untouched, which means the 16.4 engine still produces 1,001hp and 1,250Nm of torque and carries the car to a top speed of 407km/h.

‘Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport debuts at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance’

‘Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport debuts at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance’
Few cars carry as much interest as the Bugatti Veyron, famous for its ultra-high price tag, striking looks and other-worldly speeds. Now, an even more exclusive ‘roofless’ version dubbed the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport has been revealed at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance where the first model will also be put up for auction. In line with previous speculation, the roof must be removed and stowed away manually. Should the weather turn foul, a folding roof stored in the luggage compartment can be opened up like an umbrella and fixed as a temporary measure. Distinguishing the Grand Sport from its coupe sibling is its slightly taller windscreen, new daytime running lights, and of course the lightweight and transparent polycarbonate roof. According to Bugatti’s communication chief, Georges Keller, the roofless ‘targa’ option was the only one available to Bugatti because there was no other solution which could fit with the car’s safety cage. While the roof will be removable, there will be no storage space for it within the car, so the cover will have to be taken off at home. Most low-volume supercars use targa panels because of the low cost of development and to retain the structural integrity of the chassis. With the roof in place, the Grand Sport will reach speeds of up to 252mph (407km/h) just like the coupe. Speeds of up to 224mph (360km/h) are possible with the roof stowed away. The umbrella-like cloth roof limits the Veyron’s top speed to a rather low 81mph (130km/h), however. The Buggatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport will be available from March next year, at a cost of ?1.4 million (USD$2.05 million). Only 150 examples will be produced, with the first 50 going exclusively to registered Bugatti customers. The highly coveted first vehicle to roll off the line will be auctioned for charity at the Pebble Beach Auction.
