Nothing on earth is a polarizing as element 79, gold. The brilliance of gold lies not only in its color and weight but also that it never changes. It doesn’t corrode or react with anything easily which makes it a near-perfect electrical conductor. Carbon fiber is another valuable material, but our supply of carbon is nearly infinite. Having gold and carbon fiber together is a rare occurrence, so for the ultimate trifecta, throw in one of the world’s most expensive production cars. The result? The Bugatti Veyron Mansory Linea Vincero D’oro.
The Mansory Linea Vincero D’oro is literally a victory of gold. The artists at Mansory chose the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 as the starting point, but only the engine and transmission remain in base form. Their proprietary carbon fiber is woven with microscopic carbon wire for a unique shine. It is used to replicate the factory panels from the windshield back, and the front end is their interpretation on the ultimate Bugatti. The hood, fenders and front fascia are one of a kind. A horizontal grille bar with a golden V sets it apart from all imposters. All of the composite materials are baked in Mansory’s own autoclave, with attention to longevity. Infused with UV-blocking additives, it will shine brightly for years.
We had a chance to drive it while we were building our booth at the 2013 Orange County Auto Show. The attention to detail we noticed in this build is unbelievable. An interior of white leather with gilded details All exterior trim is either painted or anodized in a gold compound with the most prominent feature being the turbine wheels. The of the car is none other than Manny Khoshbin’s, a well-known car collector, and entrepreneur. So if you want an opportunity to own a work of art, click the link below.
