Rumour of another collaboration

  1. Hermes and Bugatti

    Source: http://www.carblog.co.za/2008/02/11/special-edition-bugatti-veyron-at-geneva/

    Rumors say that Bugatti is going to come with a special edition of the Veyron at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show. They’ve teamed up with the French saddle maker Hermès to bring back the relationship between Emile Hermès and Ettore Bugatti from the `20s. Considering all these I’d bet my horses that it’s going to be come with a modified interior designed by the Paris based company and some minor exterior mods.
    I expect it to sell out in days if not hours after they announce it, just like the Pur Sang.

  2. Wasn't the Bolide originally called the Bugatti due to this relationship?
     
  3. :choochoo:...oh beaumonde :drool::nuts: i'm imagining the smell of this new car....
     
  4. This is amazing.
     
  5. Yes , I think the Bolide was named after the Bugatti!!
    But the Veyron!!!
    Super charged car, super charged bag?????
    You got my attention!!!
     
  6. ^^^Yes, the Bolide was originally named the Bugatti, but the company was going to sue, so Hermes changed its name.
     
  7. Why would you sue. I wouldnt think an Hermes bag named after them would hurt their image, ya know? but whatever.

  9. Bugatti Veyron Fbg par Hermès to come in new four colors

    This unique version of the Bugatti Veyron Fbg par Hermès was first launched in Geneva in complimentary tones of ebony and étoupe and ebony and brick.
    In order to give the customer a wider range of options Hermès and Bugatti have developed four new colours schemes in line with the heritage and the values of the two houses.
    Therefore, the Bugatti Veyron Fbg par Hermès is now also available in these exclusive combinations : “indigo blue and vermilion”, “indigo blue and lime green”, “black and garance red” and “Prussian blue and blue jean”.
    The fascination exerted by this sports coupé, capable of reaching 407 km/h, is due in large part to its unique alliance of the very finest motor-racing technology with comfortable handling for everyday driving.

    The 16-cylinder “W” configuration engine is fed by four turbochargers and features 64 valves, generating 1001 horsepower at 6000 rpm. The engine draws on its 8-litre displacement to deliver a maximum torque of 1250 Newton-metres between 2200 and 5500 rpm. With full-time all-wheel drive, the car’s phenomenal power produces breath-takingly dynamic handling, with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 2.5 seconds. The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 benefits from aeronautical and aerospace technologies, making it the fastest production car ever made. The car also features a braking system designed to deliver unprecedented powers of deceleration, establishing a new industry benchmark. The carbon-fibre discs provide brake pressure of up to 180 bars, combined with eight-piston monobloc callipers and titanium pistons fitted with fine steel heads and ceramic heat protectors. Apply the brakes at speeds above 200 km/h, and the rear wing acts as an airbrake, positioning itself at an angle of 113 degrees in less than 0.4 seconds, augmenting the Bugatti Veyron’s already impressive stopping power. The airbrake increases negative lift at the rear of the car to 300 kg, enhancing the braking torque on the rear axle. At 400 km/h, emergency braking will bring the sports car to a complete halt in less than 10 seconds.

    This exceptional car is priced at 1.55 million Euros (not including taxes) and is available at the end of 2008.

  14. Love the color combination! An absolutely amazing car.

    FYI they had the non-H version at the Grand Opening of Monticello Raceway...unfortunately as it was a "donated car for display" I did not have the opportunity to put it through its paces.
