New Car: 2013 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Art Car

If a Bugatti Veyron ever had a head-on collision with a life-sized scientific calculator, the end result would likely be what we see here. But this was no accident. Bugatti and French artist Bernar Venet collaborated to create this black and orange Veyron Grand Sport, one of the most expensive and fastest art cars ever made.

At first glance it appears as if the artist simply splattered orange paint on the Bugatti’s front clip and rims. A closer inspection reveals a collection of mathematical equations, which Venet claims is just one of his many passions. The equations and mathematical formulae are said to be some of the same ones the Bugatti engineers used to make the Veyron one of the fastest cars in the world. The mathematic theme also carries over into the interior door panels, which serve as an accent to the dark-brown leather used for the seats.

No word if Bugatti plans to sell this art piece, but expect a bit more than the Grand Sport’s already insane price tag of around $2 million. For now it will be on display at the Rubell Family Collection in Miami during the Art Basel Miami Beach even from December 5-9.
