Bare carbon fiber, chrome, French racing blue...Bugatti's done just about everything to the Veyron but plate it in gold. Oops, look like we spoke to soon, as our favorite Orwelian supercar has proven once again that all Veyrons are special, but some are more special than others.

Like the gold-plated Rolls-Royce Phantom DHC, this gilded Bugatti was ordered for delivery to the Middle East. But unlike the myriad Veyrons in the United Arab Emirates, this one has been purchased by a Kuwaiti customer just up the Persian Gulf coast, who reportedly actually drives it in between the occasional $10,000 detailing jobs and storage in a climate-controlled chamber.

Generally speaking, we're not big fans of this particular brand of wretched excess, but as far as gold-plated, seven-figure supercars go, the gold-and-tan combination is relatively tasteful.

      What does a $10,000 detailing job get me, and where do I get it?

        For $10,000, they better wash my undercarriage.

      I want to see someone plate their Veyron with another, melted-down Veyron. That would basically be the biggest FU they could ever give the world.

      See, this underscores my argument that there's no point in making a new McLaren F1. If they do, some person in the Middle East will gold-plate it or chrome it.

      Reading about another Veyron with gold plated this, velvet that, carbon fiber etc. makes me want to read about the 2010 Camaro.

      I was going to yell something about the unbalance of wealth and that we should stop depending on them for oil, but I just realized that this happens everywhere. forget socialism, capitalism, and everything else. it's the problem of that person, not a economy type or ethnicity.

      greedy bastard.

      Any verification from an independent source if that color is indeed, gold plate? It looks like a fairly naff gold n' tan paint scheme to me.
