Geneva motor show: top 10 mad cars - 10th Bugatti Veyron Hermes
Summary An even more expensive Veyron
Mad rating 4/10
Chances of seeing production It already is (or was, as it has sold out)
First, there was the Bugatti Veyron, a 987bhp supercar with a top speed of 253.81mph and a price of approximately £810,000.
Then there was the Bugatti Veyron Pur Sang, which was essentially the same car but without paint. That didn’t stop it from being more expensive than the regular Veyron, though. Only five were ever built and they were all sold before anyone released an official price.
Now, here in Geneva, there's the Veyron Hermes. Once again, it's a limited edition and, once again, it has sold out before we could pretend to be a potential buyer and ask the price.
Still, at least buyers will get more for their money this time, including a little bit of history: Hermes supplied leather for Ettore Bugatti’s cars in the early part of the previous century. This time around, a more luxurious interior is also part of the arrangement, as are some subtle exterior modifications.
