There was an official release of the all-aluminum Bugatti Pur Sang somewhere in Frankfurt this week, but it wasn't at the official Frankfurt Auto Show. In fact, once it was shown -- presumably, once -- it wasn't seen again. Not much of a loss, really, because you won't be likely to see one either: Bugatti's only making five of them. That's even more exclusive than the edtion-of-twenty Lamborghini Reventon.

The Pur Sang is a standard-issue Bugatti stripped of all of its paint. That means raw aluminum and carbon fiber face the 200+ MPH elements in their naked states. We don't know how it looks in person, but in pics we'd have to say it's the prettiest Bugatti we've seen. Without the two-tone paint job, the car doesn't remind us of a giant Stacy Adams shoe. It's also a couple hundred pounds lighter, not that you were looking to shave weight or tenths off the car.

And heaven only knows how Bugatti will decide who gets the five examples. But of course, if you really wanted one you can always stop by Earl Scheib and have your Bugatti stripped. Since it only costs $99 to put paint on a car, it's probably not much more to take it off. Just an idea. In the mean time, be sure to check out the hi-res gallery of pics.

      Bugatti's web site has much better pix of the Pur Sang. Arguably the most beautiful car ever.

      How long will it be until a blue, white and red stripe are run up the side and 'AA' painted on the rear?

      SMRT, I mean SMART though.

      Good start. They just need to shave off another 1000 or so pounds

      This is what Bugatti should have done from the start... It looks so much better than the painted ones its almost ridiculous...

      I feel bad for anyone who already bought a Bugatti and now has to look at this beauty...

        I couldn't agree more. I'd take one in pink and poop color if that was all it took to own one.

        I don't feel bad for anyone with a Veyron.
      • 7 Years Ago
      That's how a $1,000,000 car should look, beautiful.
