As far as tuning companies go, Mansory isn't exactly known for its restraint. That's why this Bugatti Veyron-based Vivere is a little shocking to us. In terms of ostentatiousness, this thing is actually pretty tame, especially considering how over-the-top Bugatti itself can go with its legendary supercar.

For starters, the body is done up in a two-tone white-and-carbon-fiber look, which is actually sort of cool. Of course, we'd do without the added aero treatment, consisting of a "striking front apron," side skirts, larger air outlets and a new rear diffuser. Mansory again uses the word "striking" to describe the new, double-five-spoke wheels, but as far as exterior, um, enhancements go... that's it.

Inside, Mansory has added a healthy dose of LED lighting, the tuning company saying "the whole passenger compartment glows in the light" from these added lamps. The upholstery is done up in a black-and-white leather theme, sort of matching the exterior, and there's a new steering wheel that "looks sporty with great grip." Cool.

Have a look at the tamer-than-usual Mansory in the gallery above, and hop below for the official details in the press blast.

MANSORY are adding to their modified Bugatti Veyron 16.4 range with the VIVERE. After the exclusive luxury car specialist's presentation of the VINCERO in March 2009, MANSORY dazzle once more with their artistry as a car modifier, and they have transformed the Bugatti Veyron into the strictly limited MANSORY VIVERE with a number of targeted touches.

Compared to its predecessor the VINCERO, the VIVERE has received a comprehensive facelift at the front, consisting of modified wings, a shortened bonnet and a striking front apron. The integrated LED daytime running lights in the front section create a particular accent, and the stylised "V" used pays hommage to the name VIVERE. The newly developed side skirts act as a visual and aerodynamic link between the two axles. Larger air outlets on the flanks of the vehicle and at the rear give optimised motor cooling, and together with the new diffuser and the two air intakes, they underline the transition from roof to bonnet on this powerful car design. MANSORY manufacture almost all the bodywork components from ultra light, highly strong carbon fibre. The hardening process employed, under high pressure and temperature in the autoclave radically improves the material quality.

Further refinements complete the VIVERE: Striking alloy wheels with a five double-spoke design harmonise perfectly with the production tyres, both visually and technically. The interior is exclusive yet functional. MANSORY know just how to combine luxury and engineering with the demands of an exclusive limited edition vehicle, in a harmonious way. Traditional craftsmanship, hand-picked materials and a confident design come together and create a car interior in a class all of its own. In this regard, the LED's of the ambient lighting system in the seats, door furniture and the instrument panel catch the eye above all. The whole passenger compartment glows in the light from the courtesy lights, setting the high quality carbon fibre applications and the skillfully quilted black and white leather off beautifully. The new, ergonomically designed airbag steering wheel looks sporty with great grip.

      This is what's wrong with Bugatti. They went all in too early and too quick. Veyron should be a limited run to maintain ultra prestige status. But it didnt.

      The more I look at this the more it reminds me of a couple of Packard concept cars from the 50's and the 58 Edsel.

      Anyone else think that Mansory's carbon fiber is ugly? Also, there are rumors that this car is already sold to a son of a billionaire from Kazakhstan, who currently lives in Ukraine. He is an owner of a Mansory F12 Stallone (white) and Mansory G class Gronos (yellow).
