There’s no question Bugatti’s latest creation, the Chiron, is by far the best one ever produced. With its quad-turbo 8.0L W16 engine that produces 1500hp, it’s also the most powerful and fastest model. But with that being said, the Chiron is in huge demand and might be difficult to come by. That is assuming you have the $2.5-3 million needed to purchase one. In the event that you have money to burn but can’t get your hands on one, or maybe you’re one of the rare people that like the Veyron more than the Chiron, there are a few consolation options for you out there. Any old Veyron isn’t going to cut it when comparing to the Chiron, you need something more along the lines of a special edition. And if you’re looking for a special edition Veyron, look no further than the British tuning firm, Mansory. One of the prime examples is this carbon fiber and gold masterpiece called the LINEA Vincerò d’Oro.
Mansory was founded in 1989 and since then they have acquired quite the portfolio of ridiculously impressive cars over the years. But none more impressive than the one of a kind Veyrons, such as the Vincero d’Oro you see before you. While Mansory is capable of doing extensive upgrades in both the performance and the overall aesthetics of the cars they work on, this particular Veyron was just given the cosmetic treatment. And what a treatment it was. The entire body of the car has been replaced with high strength carbon fiber panels that were almost completely built in-house using a high-tech autoclave technique. Then, of course, there are the prominent gold accents placed all around the car which was a very risky thing to do. Gold is a very hard color to pull off without looking “gaudy.” But if there’s anyone that can pull it off, and do so with the level of craftsmanship required to have a Bugatti badge, it’s Mansory.
The LINEA Vincerò d’Oro is based on the original 16.4 Veyron and that means it gets the same quad turbo W16, but it “only” puts out 1,001hp. It must be rough having to deal with just 1,000hp. Later variations of the Veyron got an additional 200hp, but that’s ok. What the Vincerò d’Oro lacks in performance, it more than makes up for it the looks category.
Even though the Vincerò d’Oro was technically built back in 2008, it’s still in mint condition with very few miles. And you’d think if you were the proud owner of this car that you’d want to hang on to it and keep it as a collector’s item. A special edition car like this is never going to depreciate in value unless of course it’s wrecked or mistreated in any way. But this one quite obviously has not. But for some reason, the owner has decided to sell this masterpiece for an undisclosed amount of money. It’s recently shown up in the DuPont Registry, which is the only place you would want to sell a car of this stature. There’s no telling how much they want for this car, most reports indicate the best guess is in the same price range as the Chiron. Let’s assume that’s the case, it seems asinine to get rid of it because it’s unlikely that it cost that much when purchasing it brand new. However, with the Mansory package, I guess it is theoretically possible. Either way. this car is stunning, ridiculously fast, and will most likely continue to increase in value for the foreseeable future.
