Bugatti ‘Sang Bleu’ at Pebble Beach
Pebble Beach played host to the latest of Bugatti’s 100th anniversary celebrations, with the unveiling of the ‘Sang Bleu’ – a one-off Bugatti Grand Sport combining carbonfibre and aluminum in place of the more usual coupling of two paint colours, or paint and a contrasting material, to highlight the two-tone design.
According to Bugatti, this approach ‘opens a new dimension of Art – Forme – Technique, the company’s core values’.
The novel combination commissioned for the Pebble Beach Bugatti is Royal Blue-tinted carbonfibre with polished aluminum. The rear air scoops are tinted in the same blue, offering a dramatic view from above, while the rims are inspired by the Grand Sport Roadster and are highlighted in a Midnight Blue and Diamond Cut two-tone finish.
Meanwhile the interior is trimmed in a newly developed Gaucho leather, blending with the unusual exterior to create an elegant and harmonious appearance.
