Update: Bugatti adds more combinations for Veyron Fbg par HermèsEnlarge Photo
Hermès and Bugatti have now developed four new color schemes that draw inspiration from previous works delivered by the two companies. The color options include ‘Indigo Blue and Vermilion,’ ‘Indigo blue and Lime Green,’ ‘Black and Garance Red,’ and ‘Prussian Blue and Blue Jean.’ The new models are priced at €1.55 million without taxes (approximately $2.77 million) and will be available at the end of the year.
Original: 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 Hermès’ and it represents the culmination of a partnership that stretches back almost 80 years. Its odd name ‘Fbg par Hermès’ refers to the historic Hermès headquarters on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré (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 Hermès 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 Hermès 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 Hermès-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. The new model will go on sale towards the end of the year and will be priced from €1.55 million without taxes.
