At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Bugatti unveiled its very last unit of its vaunted Veyron — the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale. The already-spoken-for special edition model not only signaled the end of special edition Veyrons, but also marked the end of production of the vaunted Veyron nameplate, thereby underlining the end of the Veyron era. Or so we thought.
As it turns out, the French hypercar maker managed to squeeze out one more special, one-off Veyron before unveiling the La Finale just weeks ago. Meet the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Cristal Edition. A mouthful it is.
The Veyron Cristal Edition was created for a Chinese car collector named Zhang Ting. Ironically, however, it’s not his. Ting had the vehicle commissioned for his girlfriend, whose only design directive was to “make it pink”. And pink it is, as the wheels, A-pillars, air vents, rear wing, and even parts of the rear fascia are all bathed in hot pink, while the rest of the car is painted white. Inside, the Veyron Cristal Edition features a pink leather dash, gear shift, center console, seats, floors and even a steering wheel. Interestingly, this particular Veyron seems to have no obvious tie-in with the rapper-approved champagne brand other than the actual name itself.
Don’t hold your breath for any more special edition Veyron’s, because this pug-ugly pinkster was delivered in January 2015. Luckily, Bugatti had the sense not to end Veyron production on this note, as it’s clear to us that money does not buy taste. But if you’re Ting, it might bring your girlfriend some happiness. Or something.
