2010 Geneva Motor Show: Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Blue Carbon

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 28, 2010

Bugatti unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show two special editions of is impressive Veyron Grand Sport. One of these models dubbed Royal Dark Blue Special Edition, carries a bonnet, monocoque and rear section made of carbon fibre tinted in a Royal Dark Blue colour that shows off the lustre of the fibre.

The air intakes and the grilles, excepting the highly polished radiator grille, are finished in the same Royal Dark Blue, creating in this way a striking contrast between the central part of the car and the Arctic White side panels.

The inner sides of the rims are also painted in Royal Dark Blue. Regarding the EB logos on the wheels, fuel and oil filler cap, these are still made of polished aluminium as usual.

As you expected, inside the cabin the color scheme is extended and we find the same combination of blue and white.

The dashboard, centre console, seats and interior trim panels are all made of dark blue Indigo Leather, with white stitching on the steering wheel, seats, centre console and gearshift knob making a striking contrast.

If you want to buy the car we have very bad news it already been sold for an impressive 1.75 million euros (ex works).

There are three reasons why the fastest and most powerful convertible today is the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport. The first is that its engine is able to deliver 736 kW (1,001 PS) of power. The second is that maximum torque has been measured at 1,250 Nm. Third, and most telling, is that its electronically limited top speed comes in at 407 km/h.

Indeed it is the best convertible and in a league all on its own. The 16.4 Grand Sport can run up to 360 km/h when opened to the skies. When the top is opened, the driving excitement is complemented by a deep sound unmatched by any other.

When the accelerator is released, the sound made by the inhalation of the air intakes and the mid-mounted 16-cylinder engine is a one-of-a-kind acoustic experience. When the sun is out, the textile canopy is stored in its trunk.

Don’t worry about rain as the same textile canopy acts like an umbrella and can be fitted immediately before any drops even fall. The canopy may be soft but it can remain in place even when the 16.4 Grand Sport reaches 160 km/h. However with the top down, it can accelerate and go up to the maximum 407 km/h.
