Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Venet Is a Rusty Piece of Geneva Art [Live Photos]
While Bugatti's strategy in releasing more and more special edition Veyrons is getting a little too old (and too cold), we have to agree that the exclusive Venet edition takes the Molsheim cake.
Created as an "unique piece of art", the Venet Veyron is different from your daily Grand Sport thanks to its custom rust-like looking paint job "seasoned" with mathematic equations and scientific formulas which were used during the car's development.
"A Bugatti is already a work of art in itself, one that transports both its beholder and its driver into new dimensions of reality. I realized how I could translate my passion for mathematical equations and scientific treatises into three-dimensional form. My works are usually self-referential. So I found the idea of translating the equations of the Bugatti engineers onto the bodywork of the car very appealing.
It was, so to speak, a logical conclusion and a new challenge in terms of the specific form of collaboration and implementation. To me, the result is also exceptional when measured by artistic standards and bestows the object with a mythical character," said France-born sculptor Bernar Venet.
Since it wasn't subjected to any kind of mechanical alterations whatsoever, the Venet Veyron sports the same 1,001 HP turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine for a top speed of 252 mph (100 km/h).
