The new Bugatti Chiron produced in just three copies receives notes in 24 carat gold. This is a special edition of Ettore Bugatti’s daughter-in-law: the Chiron l’Ebé.
The Bugatti Chiron is an excellent design work. But Bugatti continues to find ways to surprise us with new car translations. Sometimes these new versions become new unique designs, while others just leave the richest customers to choose their options and ask a little strange things. The most recent project so far is the creation of Bugatti: it is Chiron L’Ebe, a tribute to Ettore Bugatti’s only daughter. The car (well, one of the three L’Ebe models) was launched earlier this month as a way to celebrate the end of Chiron production. The car involved is completely covered with blue-colored carbon fiber and gold accents. What we did not know at the time was that these gold objects contained 24 carat real gold.
It is the first time for Bugatti to paint a similar color on a car and “it is also the first time for the famous Bugatti logo to be made of high quality gold on a horse grille”.. Naturally, it is a description that never changes: even the most iconic versions of Chiron have not retained weight on this item. Bugatti just keeps reminding us of that The three hypercars will wear the unique “Macaron”, which is “inspired by the Art Deco style of the 1920s”. To achieve this, Bugatti has teamed up with Bavarian company Poellath GmbH & Co. KG. Surprisingly, the golden macaron took five years to develop. Keep in mind that this precious metal is very soft and difficult to work with, so it is understandable that “extensive research and laboratory testing, many experiments and special precautions” are included in this description.
Gold, gold and more … carbon!
This gold emblem is based on the solid silver medal that is commonly used for Chiron. This is “nickel-plated” during a long process, nickel used as “basic protection and corrosion for gold finish that is used”. A thin layer of gold (measuring between three to four micrometers) is placed and then cut to get the appearance of glass. This process by hand takes more than ten working hours.
Decorative ornaments of the “horse shoe” and the logo “EB” on the gas and oil caps and the back of the car are also covered with gold.. Bugatti points out that because of its size, it is on a “horse shoe” that is more difficult to use gold.
