Singaporean's Veyron 1 of 1, at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

By Deeq on 20 Aug 2014 in Super cars, Events, Singapore car news

Attached Image Bugatti traveled to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance to introduce a one-off model appropriately named Veyron 1 of 1.

The Veyron 1 of 1 was commissioned by a wealthy customer who lives in Singapore. Outside, it stands out from a stock Veyron thanks to a custom black and yellow paint job that pays homage to many vintage Bugattis including the Type 55, the Type 44 and the Type 41 Royale. Yellow accents on the rims, on the gas cap and on the radiator grille add a finishing touch to the two-tone paint job.

Interestingly, the Veyron 1 of 1 is fitted with a hand-polished radiator grille that features a mesh pattern built using the letters PL, the owner's initials. Bugatti explains the radiator grille took over 200 hours of work to finish.

The two-tone motif continues inside the Veyron with yellow stitching on the steering wheel, the shift knob, the bucket seats and the center console. A drawing of a Bugatti Type 35 in full race regalia adorns the panel between the seats.

Power comes from a stock Veyron-sourced 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine that makes 1,183 horsepower and 1500Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, allowing the car to reach 100km/h from a stop in 2.6 second and go on to a top speed of 400km/h.

Bugatti has not revealed how much the lucky owner paid for the Veyron 1 of 1. The company recently revealed the average selling price of a Veyron is €2 million (roughly S$3.3 million) including options, indicating the one-off model likely cost a whole lot more.

PL... heehee, guess it is Mr Football Club?

Not to be outdone by the owner of the Agera R or the bloke at Ridley Park that has an F40, F50 and Enzo all parked side by side. 

With the money he splashed out, couldn't he have demanded a right hand drive car though?

Valencia, Veyron.

 

Probably favours Vertu and Vacheron Constantin just to be alliteratively perfect. :D

 

Anyway, lots of *seriously* wealthy people in the Tiny Red Dot. Rather sobering when you realise this guy with the *bespoke* Veyron is ranked "just" #8 in SG.  :blink:

Is there really an F40 in Singapore? Parked in a visible spot? I know there is a house at Ridley with lots of hypercars just at the corner of the road. That one?

Dont think he was that rich, getting 1 of the most expensive car manufacturer in world to create a right hand drive just for him. Maybe Sultan Brunei also cant do dat

ranked no.8 back in 2010, wonder how much he is worth now..

I think this is one of the nicer looking one off. I'm quite fond of the black/yellow contrast and the Bugatti badge under the rear wing..

An autographed sports player card is worth more if its not addressed to someone in particular. I feel its the same for this car, even if it is the only one. If you stop to think about it, all that is truly special about it is the marketing blurb - everything else done to the car are merely adornments.

Valid point, but I think "PL" is rich enough not to sweat the resale value or potential, even of a Veyron.
