Bugatti Veyron by Mansory Linea Vincero d'Oro – Click above for high-res image gallery

We know what you've been thinking: All the Bugatti Veyron needs is a little more flash. Are we good, or are we good? Anathematic as the thought might be to some, there are others on this planet who are always looking for another way to show off their wealth, instead of hiding it in offshore accounts. And for those flashy few, there is Mansory.

Along with such gaudy monstrosities as the Pepto-pink Bentley and the Polo Sport-on-acid Porsche Panamera, Mansory has modified the Veyron with the Linea Vincero range of accessories, including a full aero kit (in case the Volkswagen empire hadn't invested enough in getting the Veyron's aerodynamics just right) and highly polished carbon-fiber body panels that include copper threads interwoven into the material for even more flash. The Vincero d'Oro, unbelievably, upgrades with gold brightwork on the wheels, V-shaped grille, door handles, mirror housings, fuel filler cap, headlight washer nozzles, headlight surrounds and roof. Naturally, the interior has been subjected to the gilded treatment as well.

The good news is that Mansory has only created the one example. The bad news is that they'll gladly perform the same on any existing Veyron. It's at times like these we're glad we don't live in Dubai. Details in the press release after the jump, high-resolution images in the gallery below.

LINEA Vincerò d'Oro –
The ultimate Bugatti Veyron 16.4 from MANSORY remains one of a kind

With the LINEA Vincerò d'Oro, MANSORY has completed its strictly limited series for the refined Bugatti Veyron 16.4. After the specialist for exclusive luxury vehicles raised the bar for high-performance sports cars by another level in March 2009, MANSORY is now placing the crowning glory on the art of refinement. Using targeted changes, MANSORY first transformed the Bugatti Veyron into the LINEA Vincerò and then, using a special gold-coloured alloy, into the unique LINEA Vincerò d'Oro.

Compared with the standard Veyron, the LINEA Vincerò has received a comprehensive facelift to its front, consisting of modified fenders, a shortened bonnet and a striking front apron. The LED daytime running lights and the stylised letter "V" (paying homage to the name Vincerò) built into the car's front end are particular highlights of the new design while the newly developed side skirts form a visual and aerodynamic link between the axles. Larger air outlets at the rear and at the sides of the car ensure optimal engine cooling and, with the new diffuser, underscore the vehicle's vibrant design. MANSORY manufactures almost all the components in the car's body from ultra-light, high-strength carbon and the autoclave method of hardening under high pressure and high temperatures used during the manufacturing process makes a huge improvement to the quality of the materials. One unique feature of the design of the LINEA Vincerò d'Oro is the carbon fabric with inbuilt copper thread used by MANSORY, the metallic sheen of which really brings out the exceptional nature of this special car.

Other gold-coloured features complete the LINEA Vincerò d'Oro, including the distinctive "turbine" design alloy wheels, the curved grill featuring the stylised "Vincerò-V", the door handles, the rear view mirror caps and the fuel tank cap. But that's not all: the headlight washer nozzle covers, the borders around the daytime running LEDs and the decorative features on the roof all shimmer in precious gold too.

The car's interior has an exclusive look and feel while remaining functional. MANSORY understands the importance of combining luxury and technology with the golden aspirations of this unique car. Traditional workmanship, fine materials and a stylistically confident design combine to create an interior that is fitting for such a classy car. You notice this in particular with the LEDs of the car's mood lighting system placed in the car's seats, the door trims and the dashboard. The entire passenger cabin shines in the golden glow of this feel-good lighting which masterfully draws attention to the high-quality carbon appliqués as well as to the specially embossed leather. The airbag steering wheel with inbuilt shift paddles and gilded elements, designed in a new ergonomic style, is both sporty easy to keep a good grip of. Gold alloys can also be found on the decorative strips of the door trims and on the centre console.

The Mansory Cooperation GmbH solely offers proprietary developed modification accessories under the name LINEA Vincerò. They do not market entire automobiles and also do not sell any such vehicles.

      I just died a little inside. In most cases legit aftermarket tuners' aero kits do improve things. But I highly doubt that Mansory's kit improves the Veyrons drag coefficient or it's downforce. VW pretty much did all that can be done the first time around.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Not really true, they veyron was designed aesthetically before it was made to go 253. Thats one of the reasons its such an impressive car as they didn't compromise the styling to make it fast. They made it fast in spite of the rather ornate body work.

      Rather tame for a Mansory car.
      • 4 Years Ago
      MAN! I'm SORrY those people continue to perpetrate (defacate) their
      poor taste on innocent automobiles! Somebody should stop them NOW!

      Mansory makes custom cars catered to what the buyer wants they don't make the cars so a few people on Autoblog can love it.

      First time I read that title, I thought it was the Vincent D'Onofrio edition.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I thought of Guillermo del Toro myself. For a moment I thought a Hellboy Veyron badass! lol
      • 4 Years Ago
      Dear god, my eyes... my eeeeeeyyyyyeeessssss!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Ok, the car is ridiculous. But . . swap that gold for a matte aluminum or stainless against the carbon fiber, and this would be my favorite interpretation of ridiculous.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Though I agree with the swap for silver, this is the first time I ever thought Gold wheels and accents actually looked good on a car!

        • 4 Years Ago
        I am with you, the gold is nasty, but some nice brushed metal would just make it great. I don't dig the LED's all around the dash.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @Wujuboy: because everything they touch turns into an expensive turd, pas de touche'
        • 4 Years Ago
        Brushed aluminum against the CF would be phenomenal. Gold makes it look like something out of a hole in a wall middle eastern restaurant
        • 4 Years Ago
        I would like it in matte black.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @Jesse: You are absolutely right! Same exact design with bare aluminum instead of gold would be a real looker.
        • 4 Years Ago
        "the only thing i like about this company is the self-irony they showcased by choosing this name."

        Why is that? Because they kill the cars? Touché my friend.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Don't mess with the aerodynamics, and I actually kind of like it. A little late '90s with the gold emblems and all, but a hell of a lot better than some other editions of supercars.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @ Al Terego. But you'll look like a right cheapskate when your mate turns up in a platinum version :p
        • 4 Years Ago
        I agree. If you're rich enough to own this car, a little gold isn't going to change the average person's 'opinion' of you.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I doubt that gold is 250+ MPH rated.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Is it bad that I think this is cool?
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm afraid so. Sorry.
      • 4 Years Ago
      This is Vincent D'Onofrio's new car? He must have made a boatload on L&0 Criminal Intent.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Kind of hard to say from here how does that carbon-fiber copper body really look in real life, but i'm actually kind of liking it. I like how the back and front comes together on that "color scheme". Thought that gold stuff on wheels, mirrors etc is a bit too much.
