Mansory has just announced the one-of-a-kind Bugatti Veyron Linea Vincero d’Oro as a follow up to their Linea Vincero from last year. And in true Mansory fashion, the Veyron is adorned with some outlandish accents – this time in the form of carbon fiber with copper threads.

Compared to the run-of-the-mill Veyron, Mansory has shortened the hood and modified the fenders. The front has also been revised with LED daytime running lights. Side skirts and a new rear diffuser naturally fit into the package.

Now what makes this model so unique is the gold detailing sprinkled throughout the car. It’s a result of copper threads in the carbon fiber. Plus, the wheels, grille, door handles and fuel cap all get gold colored detailing. On the inside there are even more gold accents.

In the engine bay, Mansory increases horsepower output of the 8.0L 16-cylinder engine through a cold air intake and tuned exhaust system. This takes horsepower from 1001-hp to 1109-hp and torque from 922 ft-lbs to 966 ft-lbs.

We’re sort of glad that there’s only one of these out there. We’d hate to think more than one person would want to do this to a Veyron, never mind be able to afford it all.

Mansory used the 2009 Geneva Auto Show to not only show off some of the most unique vehicles in the world, but also to introduce its Linea Vinceró line of tuning for Bugattis.

On display was a black, exposed metal and carbon fiber Veyron with the thickest carbon-fiber weave we’ve ever seen.

New LED lights up front as well as a V-shape nose helps give the supercar an even more unique look. The body work extends around the car with a new front splitter, a new rear diffuser and a new rear spoiler. The Veyron even features a new engine cover with larger openings to help keep those four turbochargers cool.

And keeping them at an ideal operating temperature is even harder than before thanks to an increase in power. Yes… more power! The Linea Vinceró Bugatti Veyron boasts 1,109hp and 966 ft-lbs of torque.
