“A Bugatti is already a work of art in itself, one that transports both its beholder and its driver into new dimensions of reality.” – Bernar Venet
The Bugatti Veyron, an exclusive beauty in itself, produces a very limited number of special edition models each year, and now the latest rarity from Bugatti has been released – the Veyron Grand Sport Venet.
Bugatti bills its latest masterpiece as the “fastest artwork ever.”
As one of the world’s fastest cars, this version features the artwork of French conceptual artist Bernar Venet. Venet’s artwork graces the exterior and inside cabin of the Veyron.
With Art Basel Miami Beach happening this week, Bugatti wanted to showcase something special. Venet, a New York based artist, was approached by Bugatti to create his mathematics and science inspired art on the special edition Veyron.
Actual Bugatti Mathematic and scientific formulas, used when developing the Veyron, flow across the cars front and flanks over a rusted orange and black ombre finish. The inside cabin gets the same treatment with a wave of formulas on the door panels and the rusted look on the dash panels and leather trim.
The Veyron Grand Sport Venet is of course based on the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport.
The special edition Grand Sport Venet boasts an “1,001-horsepower rating for its quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 engine and a top speed of 252 mph. Of course, with its removable roof detached, top speed is limited to 224 mph, and with its umbrella-like temporary cloth roof fitted top speed drops to just 81 mph.”
Interested in seeing the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Venet in person? The car will be displayed during Art Basel Miami Beach at the Rubell Family Collection from December 5 to 9.
