Others have Versace Helicopters to take them to work. Then again others have work to attend to… Posh, darling, you’ll just have to settle in with a Bugatti…
However, don’t feel the despair taking your orange cheeks by storm! It’s not an ordinary Bugatti! It’s a Veyron! Oh, that doesn’t ring a bell either? Hm, I’m sorry, I thought 16-cylinder in W for a 0-100kmh in 2.5 seconds would amaze almost everyone! Well, then, it’s a Bugatti Veyron par Hermès!
So now that I’ve got your attention, I can go on with the presentation, right? So, the fastest production car ever made (I’ll deliberately skip the technical details) is dressed to impress! Hermès and designer Gabriele Pezzini worked together for this world’s most fascinating car giving it the Faubourg Saint-Honoré touch, hence the Fbg particle in the model’s name.
So where’s the Hermès from this Bugatti? The wheels in polished aluminium feature a central letter H plus the air vents around the rims reproduce the Hermès saddle-stitching, the horseshoe radiator grille and the lateral ventilation grilles flanking it wear the H signature.
The interior is designed and sheathed in bull calfskin at the Hermès Parisian atelier. The door handles inherit the Hermès handles from travel bags and luggage. The dashboard is entirely in bull calfskin with a glove compartment with a zipped Hermès wallet.
The seats are covered in two toned bull calfskin and the panel separating the cockpit from the central rear engine is covered in the leather. The leather lined trunk has a “Toile H”, a leather case handmade chez Hermès.
All you have to do is order you very own Bugatti Veyron Fbg Hermès priced modestly at $2,5 Million (1,5 Million Euros) without taxes and available around Christmas time (this year). Personally, Hermès or no Hermès, I’d still drive that Veyron just to see what’s it like… Maybe that would do for my Christmas ‘cause all that leather and H-overload kinda make me itchy. What’s the purpose of all that luxury marks for a car (besides a sky high price)
