Click for hi-res gallery of the Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir

If you're thinking about dropping $1.5 million on a set of wheels, would a special edition really tip the scales one way or another? Well, Bugatti evidently thinks so. After having produced the Pur Sang and the Fbg par Hermès editions, the ultra-premium auto marque revealed the Sang Noir last month.

Now, after disgruntled U.S. buyers lost out on the opportunity to buy the Pur Sang when it sold out to an invited group of European customers in Paris, Bugatti has announced that its American clientele will get first crack at the limited run of 15 Sang Noir Veyrons before they're offered elsewhere in the world. And who said holding American citizenship isn't worth what it used to be?

      The Veyron is becoming the Ford Mustang, with a special edition model coming out each month. Way too many... and most people don't care.

      I was initially thinking this car was better in two tone paint, but now I think it looks freakin' awesome in monotone black. It's got a wild enough body that it doesn't need such a bold paint job.

      Further evidence, if any was needed, that this car looks vastly better in solids rather than two-tone schemes.

      Gorgeous.

      First time I read that headline, it said "US buyers get crack first," which you would need to pay that much money for a car

      hate the color of the interior but you gotta love those rims!

      Methinks Bugatti needs to churn out special editions of their car for the sole purpose of moving Veyrons in general. A dealership where I live as a Veyron sitting in its lot.

      3 Words SSC Ultimate Aero... only cost about $500k or so... why spend $1.5 million on Veyron. when you can get a SSC for less. The Veyron is a really nice car and all but id take the SSC over it... But Really i do like both cars so... Yeah...

        At that level, price is irrelevant when it comes to supercars. For quality and reliability, do not bother to compare SSC Ultimate Aero (designed for speed only) to Bugatti Veyron.

      If I got a Veyron, it would have to be a special edition model. Otherwise my friends would mock me.

      "Dude, is that a Veyron? Niiiice"

      "Yeah it's pretty cool"

      "Is it just the base model?"

      "Yeah"

      "...ahh. Well then, cya later."

      If I had 1.5 million and bought it, odds are I would be one of those guys who pulls out of the dealer, floors it, crashes the car and drives back home in my daily driver with bruises. Crack is cheaper. Joking.

      imo, the pur sang and this sang noir are pretty lame

      the pur sang looks ugly, and this one has weird wheels

      the regular one was perfect, and the Hermes edition was pretty nice too.

        I'm with you.
        Über special and Über usless.
        Just another thing that makes one person better than the next. I want to see the guy who gold plates a horse and replaces the bones with diamonds. Then I'll believe that he is in some way more "special" than the guy with the "base" Veyron. Sang noir, faux pas. Veyron, brbavo.

      Pur Sang is still my favorite. Who needs color when you can show off your carbon fiber and aluminum body. yummm
