We believe Bugatti’s Veyron Grand Sport needs no real introduction as the convertible counterpart to Bugatti’s Veyron coupe. It weighs more, it costs more, but hey, you can hit 220-mph with the roof off.

Now with only 150 of these bad boys being made in the world, we wouldn’t imagine that a whole lot of units would be customized. But lo and behold, O’Gara Coach Company, a dealership in Beverly Hills, played host to this beautifully done matte white Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport.

A lucky enthusiast was just passing by the dealership with his handy video-recording Canon DSLR and captured a video highlighting the vehicle to share with the rest of the world. How fortunate for us, because this Grand Sport is simply stunning. The matte white exterior is contrasts with red carbon fiber, striping and accents, giving it a truly race-inspired look. The wheels are finished in a matching flat white as well, while the interior is completely matched to the exterior’s theme. Even the engine bay receives a red and white treatment.

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.
