Exterior & Interior
The man behind Bugatti, Ettore Bugatti has always experimented with different color schemes and materials for his extreme cars. He has always preferred painting his cars in two color combinations. The Veyron Grand Sport is no exception and is colored in yellow and black. This interesting combination of yellow and black color is said to be one his all time favorite.
The two colors are split horizontally, with bright yellow covering the top part of the car with black carbon underneath it. The yellow and black theme is not only limited to exteriors, but also runs into the interiors with seats finished in yellow leather and black stitching.
The central console is colored in carbon black. The dashboard, gearshift and steering wheels are covered with black leather and yellow stitching.
Veyron Grand Sport's internal largely remains the same. The car is powered by the quad-turbocharged 8-litre W-16 engine which churns out whopping 1001-horsepower. The car can do 0 to 60 in 2.7 seconds.
The Veyron Grand Sport model would cost $2.05 million, which is more than 10% premium over the out of production original Veyron. The incremental changes are only cosmetic but the one planning to buy this car won't complain about the difference in price.
