The structure of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 gave the designers the idea of finishing the car in its pure material configuration – meaning no colour coating. The result is the Bugatti EB 16.4. Veyron “Pur Sang”, a two-tone study of pure materialness showing the car’s true essentials: carbon and aluminium.
The sophisticated monocoque contains all the core structural components, including the W16 engine, the passenger cell, the crash box and the linkagesto the wheels. It is this purpose-driven point that is visible as the centre of the car in clear-coated carbon fibre. The aluminium panelling lends shape and a unique body sculpture to the car, covering the wheels in a muscular and powerful expression by way of elaborately shaped fenders.
The Bugatti EB 16.4 Veyron “Pur Sang” continues the legacy of the classic Bugatti sportscars: the “Atalante”, the Type 55, the Type 41 “Royale” – they all had an unmistakeable and characteristic graphic signature. It is this precise division of performance components and body panelling that makes the EB 16.4. Veyron “Pur Sang” unique in the supercar world.
Only five special pieces of the Bugatti Veyron Pur Sang were produced and we were lucky enough to be offered a car by Bugatti and had very little difficulty finding a home for it. The Pur Sang we sold was delivered to a customer in 2009.
