Bugatti deems special Veyron Grand Sport “fastest artwork ever”, combining mathematical formulae with a rusted finish. There aren’t many cars more exclusive than a Bugatti Veyron, especially the handful of special edition models released each year.

The latest is a Grand Sport uniquely painted by French artist Bernar Venet. Bugatti calls the Veyron Grand Sport Venet the “fastest artwork ever,” which doesn’t mean the conceptual artist rushed his work, but rather that the rolling piece of art is capable of hitting 252 mph thanks to its 8.0-liter quad turbo W16 engine good for 1,001 horsepower.

New York-based Venet was commissioned by Bugatti to create something truly special for this week’s Art Basel festival in Miami Beach, and the French-born artist was selected because “his approach is radically different” from previous art cars.

That approach includes applying scores of mathematical and scientific formulae used by Bugatti engineers in developing the Veyron across its front fascia and over its flanks. Known for his abstract creations influenced by mathematics and science, Venet used his trademark rusted metal finish.

The theme continues inside, with orange details adorning the door panels, with rust-finish the dash and leather trim. Speaking at the special edition Bugatti’s announcement, Venet said: “a Bugatti is already a work of art in itself, one that transports both its beholder and its driver into new dimensions of reality.”

To enter that new realm, visit the Art Basel Miami Beach at the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, where the Veyron Grand Sport Venet will be on display from December 5-9.

This Supermarket Came Up With A Brilliant Way To Keep Food From Going To Waste

People don’t really think of starvation when they’re about to toss a perfectly fine batch of vegetables into the trash after dinner. Furthermore, people don’t think about all of the food being wasted when they sort through their refrigerators. Perhaps what’s even more frightening, is the fact that no one thinks about the fact that “spoiled” […]
