Jay-Z Gets Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport From Beyonce For His 41st Birthday

Jay-Z is a pretty lucky guy – one of the world’s best rappers, former CEO of Def Jam Records and a multiple Grammy winner worth about $450 million. If that wasn’t enough, he’s married to Beyonce Knowles, the super-talented singer who was kind enough to buy her husband a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport for his 41st birthday.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Pictures: Massive Gallery of the Wolrd's Fastest Car

Several months back we got our first look the the new Veyron Super Sport when Bugatti debuted the car by announcing it had been certified by the Guinness Book of Records as the World’s Fastest Car. Then we brought you numerous photos from the unveiling of the second production version of the supercar from The Quail motorsports gathering during the Pebble Beach festivities.

Matte White Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport on Display in Beverly Hills [Video]

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.

Bugatti Veyron Launched In India With MSRP Of $3.6 Million

More than 75 percent of India’s population lives on less than $2 a day, but that hasn’t stopped Bugatti from selling their Veyron supercar in the country, where a 110 percent import tax has pushed the car’s price to $3.6 million USD.

Bugatti Veyron Fender Bender Caught on Video

As the story goes, a potential Bugatti Veyron owner wanted to take his (not so) future car out on a test drive. While backing out the $2,000,000 supercar, the driver neglected to check his blind spots carefully and ended up backing into a car just sitting in traffic.

And along with the rear bumper damage, the driver managed to scrape the front bumper of the car getting out of the driveway, clearly having no experience of driving a lower profile vehicle. Of course everything was witnessed by innocent bystanders just trying to take a good look at the exotic. We’re guessing the one who captured this video just couldn’t wait to get it up on Youtube to share with the rest of the world.

Rumor has it that the damage tallied up to $30,000 and one would assume that the test driver would be forking out the bill for it. The extravagant cost to repair the damage is mostly due to the rarity of licensed Bugatti technicians, despite the accident being so small.

BMW 6 Series Transformed Into Bugatti Veyron [video]

In the world of crazy conversions, we’ve seen quite a few. Some are horrendous and some are respectable, given the scope of what they did with their project. This one definitely fits into the horrendous pile, even if it’s not nearly as bad as it could be.

This car began life as was a standard BMW 6-Series coupe. But after more extensive modifications to its exterior than Heidi Montag, it’s now a little Bugatti Veyron wanna-be. And while it might pass of as just that to some folks, those who know will just shake their heads in disgust. Truth be told though, the detail and amount of work that’s put into this project is overwhelmingly respectable. For the most part the conversion is well executed, and like we said, it could pass as a Bugatti Veyron to an unsuspecting layman.

We respect the work and the concept, but would we ever be caught dead driving this thing? Um… no!

Bugatti 16C Galibier Teased Again With a Fresh Batch of Photos

Back in June we were already sold on the fact that Bugatti will inevitably release the 16C Galibier to the general public. And if this set of official photos isn’t enough to convince you, we guess you’ll just have to wait until you’re behind the wheel yourself. Then again, with a price well over $1 million, you probably won’t ever be behind the wheel.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Laps Paul Ricard Race Track

Bugatti’s Veyron Super Sport is built more for straight-line speed rather than lapping a road course. That didn’t stop one gentleman from taking the car around the Paul Ricard circuit (which looks like a pretty dull track, to be honest).

In truth, the video isn’t all that exciting. The flat track makes it look as if the car isn’t going too fast, even down the ultra-long straight away. But then again, we wouldn’t risk millions of dollars of car on a simple lapping day.

21 Year Old Saudi Student Owns 30 Amazing Cars; We Just Want One

We could spend hours on how jealous we are about this 21-year-old, or how spoiled he is and how he’ll never know what it’s like to have a tough life. But we just have to respect his pure taste in supercars and the fact that he actually pursued an education rather than sitting back, driving his fine collection of cars and living off his (clearly affluent) father.

Rap Mogul Birdman Takes Delivery Of All Red Bugatti Veyron (Video Inside NSFW Language)

Birdman, sometime rapper and full time president of the appropriately named Cash Money Records (the record label and home to superstar rappers like Drake, Lil Wayne, Bow Wow and Nicki Minaj) recently celebrated his staggering wealth by taking delivery of a $2.5 million Bugatti Veyron at a Dade County low-income housing area.

Birdman, who is known for his love of red cars due to his self-proclaimed affiliations with the Bloods, ordered his Veyron in a predictable red-on-red color scheme with a special red key. Birdman arrived for the delivery wearing an entirely red outfit, and unleashed a string of unintelligible profanities boasting of the superiority of his record labels, his automobile collection, the color red and his status as a wealthy African-American entrepreneur.

If you have an interest in hip-hop, this video is a must see, if only to listen to Birdman’s incoherent babbling as he finally reaches the much lauded “baller status”. Rapper Lil Wayne is also known to have a silver Bugatti, and the close relationship between Birdman and Lil’ Wayne will no doubt be strengthened by their acquisition of these fine automobiles.

Mansory Bugatti Veyron Linea Vincero D'Oro Gets Carbon-Copper Weave

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.

Official press release available after the jump.
