From Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport L’Or Blanc and Grand Sport Vitesse to everything in between, there is no shortage of special edition Veyrons produced. A natural progression, Bugatti has joined the likes of the Jeep Wrangler Dragon and has unveiled a China-exclusive special edition vehicle for the 2012 Beijing Motor Show – the Veyron Grand Sport Wei Long.

Built to commemorate the Chinese year of the Dragon, Bugatti has tapped porcelain specialists Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur Berlin of L’Or Blanc fame to create an underlying Chinese theme across the special edition exotic, fitting several high-quality porcelain dragon motifs with deep Chinese cultural roots for both the interior and the exterior of the car.

Locations of these ornate pieces of porcelain (also known as china in China) include the center wheel caps, the fuel filler cap, the rear Bugatti badge, the center console, as well as the centerpiece plate between the seats. Complementing the white porcelain is a pearl white paint scheme as well as a contrasting red interior, a popular color in Chinese culture that represents luck and fortune. On the pair of headrests, Bugatti also features an embroidery of the Chinese character for “dragon”. Finally, the dragon theme extends to hand-crafted pure silk floor mats, also embossed with dragons.

The one-off Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Wei Long costs approximately $2.08 million and is already called for. However, you can still enjoy the Wei Long in the gallery below!
