Bugatti Grand Sport in carbon fiber – Click above for high-res image gallery

Over the past few years Bugatti has released numerous versions of its Veyron supercar, but the Grand Sport model hasn't been out enough to get too many variations. Bugatti released the Sang Bleu version this past summer in Monterey, but that's about it. In addition to the the pair of Grand Sports we drove, those are the only color combinations we've seen for the drop-top Bugatti.

That is, of course, until we hit the show floor here in Geneva. Bugatti has brought out a brand new Grand Sport finished in carbon fiber covered in clearcoat and polished aluminum. Other than the wheels, which we're not huge fans of, the car is completely stunning to look at. If we somehow had the cash to buy and maintain a Bugatti, the carbon fiber finish would be the first option we would check off. You can see all of our live photos of the car in the high-res gallery below. And try to keep the drool from puddling on your keyboard.

      The chrome is a bit much, but I like where they were trying to go.

        When the F will people stop calling the polished aluminum parts of the Veyron "chrome"?

        They're polished aluminum STRUCTURAL elements!

        By chrome I meant the look. I don't mind the aluminum, but please don't polish it to the point of being obnoxious.

      These to new versions seem to have standard Audi rearview mirror casings!
      Untill now the Veyron had unique ones. What a shame for such an expensive car.

      I absolutely love the Bugatti interior. This center stack is simple and straightforward. Pity the nav is the rear view mirror though. I'm sure I could have that removed for a simple mirror though. Automakers take notes.

        ...and Audi owns Lamborghini but that doesn't automatically fire the designers at Lambo. Yeah quality was tightened up, which is a good thing but the Lambo flair wasn't affected. If you wanna talk ownership or sharing designers, maybe some Bugatti interior designers need to head to the Audi interior designer camp and show them a thing or two. Ownership has nothing to do with the interior designs in this case. There is no Audi in the Bugatti interior or VW for that matter.

        Automakers take note, mnmlist is giving suggestions.

        You do know VW, owns Bugatti AND Audi right?

        Get a life dude , ur a d-bag ! ..... if u have one of these cars then i would understand but u probably don't. so stop ur bitching and go in ur corolla and stfu !

        This is how you do a simple straightforward interior, Audi. And the Bugatti can be classified as luxury tourer because its too heavy to be a serious track car. The Bugatti is in the same vein as an Aston Martin DB9 but much faster so and a comparison with a top of the line A8 is justified. I guess you really do have to pay more to get less, but when we're talking this kind of money, who's counting?

      Too bad you can't post pics in a comment...

      Anyway, with the chrome it is now officially the Bentley Hunaudieres:

        Chrome polished whatever. Its shiny metal, and chrome is a euphemism firmly entrenched in American English dialect. If I was making a presentation to an engineering group, then I'd care.

        One is a decorative coating, one is a functional, structural element of this car. That is the difference. The carbon fiber isn't decoration on this car either. It makes a difference.

        That picture makes me cry inside.

      Pure porn, looks good.
      • 4 Years Ago
      This is the 1st time I have looked at a carbon fiber body panel and didn't think it looked hideous. They've finished it very well.

      I've loved the Veyron from first sight of concepts in 2003. The red and black version are still my favorite. I wouldn't turn this one down though.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Nice. Short of winning the lottery, I doubt I'll ever be able to own a Veyron (& even if I could pony up the asking price, I wouldn't be prepared to spend that much to maintain it) but Lord knows I sure would love to drive one... even once.
