Black Diamond Bugatti Key Is a Hyperlock Covered in Diamonds

The Bugatti Veyron successor is in the works, and whether or not it will be called Chiron it’s safe to assume the new execution will outshine all of its predecessors. There is one thing the next generation French hypercar could miss, and that’s a bespoke diamond key to unlock it in great style and opulence.

Paying millions for cars might seem crazy for some, but you should know abundance comes in many shapes and colors. Many shapes, colors, and stones, we should add. Because that’s the key to our peculiar situation here, an issue that affects even the most eccentric car collectors out there.

It might not be a W16 8-liter engined speed machine that will most likely have 1,500 horsepower to the driver’s disposal, but it does have a lot of diamonds. To be more precise, we’re talking about an on demand rare piece of jewelry that simply is annoying. Designed by New York-based Itay Malkin Jewelry, this 18K white gold key fob was designed for the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Pur Blanc and is encrusted with 10ct pave black diamonds.

Like the abundance level wasn’t already reaching the boiling point, the key fob is attached to a chain that consists of 150ct of black bead-cut diamonds. The one envisioned in the pictures is a bespoke creation, but in case you are, in fact, considering getting one for yourself, there’s nothing money won’t buy.

According to Dupont Registry, the jeweler offers a wide range of options for custom keys such as platinum, rose gold, white gold or yellow gold. You can also pick from natural diamond of all colors for your new key. You’re going to need to pop the question to get an actual price, but since the hypercars are all sold out this would sure make for an interesting collectable.

Editor's note: In case you were wondering why the key looks like old-school piece you should know it's not. While the actual car has a key fob, this is created after what you'd call the second key (or a special one, if you want) used to unlock the Top Speed Mode. The driver must toggle this special key to the left of their seat, which triggers a checklist to establish whether the car and its driver are ready to attempt to reach 253 mph (407 km/h).
