Three special-edition models launched at the Dubai motor show
16 December 2009

Bugatti has launched three new Veyron models exclusively for the Middle Eastern market.

The Bugatti Veyron Nocturne coupe will be limited to just five units. Special features include a polished aluminium bonnet, galvanised side windows, polished custom alloy wheels and polished aluminium upper body parts at the rear.

Inside, it gets a black nano-coated magnesium dashboard, and its centre console is finished in galvanised platinum. Each unit will cost 1.65 million euro (£1.47m).

Bugatti has also created two unique models for individual customers. The 1.45m euro (£1.29m) Sang d'Argent is a coupe and it gets a silver metallic paint job, the wheels from the open-top Veyron Grand Sport, polished aluminium doors and a silver air intake on the roof.

The 1.55m euro (£1.38m) open-top Soleil de Nuit completes the trio of special editions. It is finished in Black Blue metallic paint and polished aluminium, and comes with a burnt orange interior.

Our Verdict

Bugatti Veyron
The world doesn't need a car like the Bugatti Veyron, but the fact it exists at all is reason for celebration

The Bugatti Veyron redefines what's possible in a road car, but does it justify its eye-watering price?

That polished aluminium bonnet will be fun in the bright desert sun ...

I am getting tired of Bugatti constantly releasing "special editions" or "limited editions" of the Veyron. I love the Veyron and I've been a Bugatti enthusiast since before the EB110 of the early 90's. But all these limited models are starting to get a bit tacky. The last one they released was the one-off Grand Sport Sang Bleu at a cost of €1.9m plus taxes. The standard Veyron is €1.2m plus taxes and the Grand Sport €1.4m plus taxes. Half a million euros extra to Bugatti for a few extras on the Sang Bleu - no wonder they keep "churning" out limited editions...

Reminds me of Leica's snakeskin covered cameras. A wonderful object of the highest quality desecrated for those with more money than taste.

The Veyron must be catching up with the classic Mini for number of special editions by now! Wonder how many the Sultan of Brunei has now, because doesn't he usually buy (at least) one of everything?

These are cars for the seriously rich, what does it matter to us?, surely we can admire the workmanship that goes into these cars,of course we can't afford them,but isn't it just nice to admire their form, the attention too detail,and if we're ever lucky enough to see one on the move, we should enjoy the moment.

Those windows should galvanise opinion. How does one see out?

16 December 2009

I trust this form of galvanising doen't involve the application of a layer of zinc by dipping the glass into a molten bath of zinc @600 degrees C.

Maybe they have used it for the bodywork - Galvanised sheet steel is commonly used in automotive manufacture to enhance corrosion performance of exterior body panels of some models....

17 December 2009

Doh. I didn't know that ;)

17 December 2009

They probably do mean galvanised, but it is an effect from a holographic treatment, rather than actual galvanising. I guess in this application it would be so one could see out, but not in.

The intention is to give the effect of galv. steel though.

17 December 2009

Like this. I think you'll agree that the effect is well worth it. NOT!

    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
