Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Sang Bleu

Bugatti Automobiles SAS has chosen the well-known Pebble Beach weekend to present a further highlight, the Bugatti Sang Bleu, an exclusive one-off Grand Sport, honoring the precious heritage of the marque. The model has ventured into new areas. Instead on focusing on the paint, the carmaker concentrates on materials, carbon fiber and aluminum to be more precise, an innovative combination never realized before. The color combination approved for the Pebble Beach car is blue carbon fiber with polished aluminum. The rear air-scoops are tinted in the same night-blue providing a dramatic view from above and thus fluidly integrate into the overall design philosophy of this unique model. The rims are highlighted in a Midnight Blue and Diamond Cut two tone finish. In terms of interior, you should know it has been trimmed in newly developed Gaucho leather which blends with the intriguing and pure exterior materials, in the end, obtaining an elegant and harmonious overall appearance. In its 100th year of existence, Bugatti has been selected to be one of the feature marques at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours dElegance. The founder of Bugatti started the business in the Alsacian town of Molsheim in 1909. Exactly 50 years later, in March 2006, the first Bugatti Veyron built by Bugatti Automobiles SAS was delivered after the Volkswagen Group had acquired the rights of the Bugatti marque in 1998 and started the re-launch of this famous brand. In June 2009, the carmaker started producing the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, the open roadster. Over 20 units have been sold, with first deliveries already started. The Sang Bleu is the latest in a line of centenary Bugatti models which have won worldwide acclaim in 2009.
