The Gold Bugatti Veyron and The Bugatti Veyron Fbg par Hermes

What’s great about London is that you always see the unexpected. I was running errands today, doing some prep for my shoot on Tuesday and I saw the coolest car. If you want bling a gold Bugatti Veyron is the way to go!

Tamara de Lempicka’s self-portrait in the green Bugatti made an already famous car iconic.

This is definitely a fashionista’s car. During the 1920’s Ettore Bugatti and Émile Hermès met when Ettore ordered a bespoke suitcase for his first Bugatti Royale. Designers are always looking for collaborations but it’s rare to find true synergy between brands. Bugatti had a passion for horses and Hermès, the saddle maker, had a passion for cars.

At the Geneva motor show in 2008 Bugatti partnered with Hermès, creating the "Fbg Par Hermès" trim. The interior is trimmed in Hermès leather and it comes with a specially designed Hermès suitcase to fit in the trunk. There are four colour schemes that draw inspiration from the 80 year relationship between the two companies. The colour options are ‘Indigo Blue and Vermilion,’ ‘Indigo Blue and Lime Green,’ ‘Black and Garance Red,’ and ‘Prussian Blue and Blue Jean.’ Even the interior door handles are the Hermès-luggage style handles and there is no visible stitching as they use the same sewing technique on the leather as on Hermès’ famous saddles.

I love the branding!

The case comes with the car!

    I saw it too as I was walking through Mayfair. It certainly drew some admiring glances as it sped past!
