Hotter Veyron Grand Sport SS
Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport SS spy shots

Just how much sport can you dial in to the Bugatti Veyron? It looks like we're about to find out.

In one corner we have the Veyron Grand Sport, the targa-roofed roadster of the epic supercar. In the other, the Veyron Super Sport, the even more powerful version that claims the record for the fastest production automobile. Where they meet is what we anticipated just last week, and could be what we see in this fresh batch of spy shots: the Bugatti Veyron Grand Super Sport. Or Super Grand Sport. Or Super-Duper Sport.
We'll have to wait to find out what it'll be called, but we're expecting output from the quad-turbo, sixteen-cylinder engine to come in somewhere in between the Grand Sport's 1,000 and the Super Sport's 1,200. If you didn't need a toupée before, you probably will after unleashing that much power on your bare scalp.

At first glance, this Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport appears to be one of those special chrome-clad customs giving off a series of strange, wavy reflections from a series of overhead lights. Upon closer inspection, however, that's not the light playing tricks on you – it's the two-tone finish, which looks like it's been spread across the Veyron L'Or Blanc by a cake baker's frosting knife.

This one-off "white gold" Grand Sport is the result of Bugatti working with Germany's Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur, a centuries-old porcelain producer based in Berlin. In addition to the special two-tone paint, pieces of ceramic trim have been fitted to the car's exterior, and the fragile, creamy white stuff is slathered inside of this €1.65 missile, too.

The Veyron L'Or Blanc was first shown in late June at KPM's operations before being brought to America for display at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering in Monterey.

No word yet on whether this particular car has found a buyer, but given Bugatti's penchant for creating a seemingly endless stream of "limited-edition" Veyrons, we're confident they'll find a way to build you one if you flash them enough cash.
