Three unique Veyrons introduced in Dubai

yellow and black grand sport

Even though production of the original Bugatti Veyron coupe has ceased, this didn’t stop the manufacturer from producing three more unique models of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, which were unveiled at the 2011 Dubai Motor Show. An interesting fact about Bugatti is that no two vehicles will ever be the same due to the endless array of customization options it offers. The first and seemingly loudest of the Grand Sport models appears to be sporting a yellow and black color scheme for both its interior and exterior. Its exterior body is painted a bright yellow color and its underside is black carbon. A matching yellow covers dash, steering wheel, and gearshift, all stitched together in black. This model is priced at 1.58 million euros ($2.15 million).

The second model has a blue carbon top and a polished anodized aluminum bottom. For even more emphasis, this special edition includes a set of diamond-cut aluminum two-tone finished wheels. The interior includes an orange-colored leather while the dashboard, steering wheel, console, and door panels are covered in a dark blue with orange stitching. This model is priced at 1.74 million euros ($2.37 million).

The third model comes in the newly developed green carbon fiber with exposed polished aluminum, which is also on the rims, side mirrors and the logo on the rear end. The interior uses the same color scheme as the exterior. This model is also priced at 1.74 million euros ($2.37 million). According to Bugatti, the company has sold only 45 of Grand Sports, leaving 105 still available for purchase. These cars will be manufactured at the Bugatti factory in Molsheim, France.

De Macross Epique GT1 will show up live in Dubai

de Macross Epique GT1

**Correction** The body is hand-formed from aluminum, and the monocoque utilizes both carbon fiber and aluminum in its construction.**Correction**

Canada is entering the automotive arena with the de Macross Epique GT1. Working with a number of third parties for development, the Epique GT1 comprises a carbon-fiber body formed around an aluminum monocoque tub. It is powered by a bespoke supercharged 5.4-liter aluminum V-8 producing north of 840 hp and 725 lb-ft of torque. Its engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission that drives the rear wheels. With its lightweight body, the GT1 sprints 0–60 mph in 3.4 seconds and through a standing quarter mile in 11.5 seconds. Top speed is 220 mph.

But it is not designed to just be fast in a straight line. It incorporates dynamic adjustable dampers with a ride-height control system that automatically lowers the car by more than an inch while increasing spring rate for more precise handling at higher speeds. It also includes a hydraulic anti-roll device. De Macross says the Epique GT1 should be capable of up to 1.3g on the skidpad.

The car will make its live debut at the 2011 Dubai International Motor Show November 10–14. Although price and production dates have not been set, the number of units to be produced will be limited to two digits.

Mercedes unveils G55 Edition 79 for Middle East

Mercedes-Benz unveiled a special run of G55 AMG autos at the 2009 Dubai Motor Show. Called the “Edition 79,” the Designo Magno Alanite Grey-painted car will be limited to a run of, you guessed it, 79 autos all destined for the Middle East. The car is a tribute to the year 1979, the year Mercedes started building the infamous G. No performance enhancements were mentioned, so the 5.5-liter supercharged V-8 engine will make the same 500 hp and 516 lbs.-ft. of torque as the standard G55 model. Besides the special paint, the car can be distinguished from a base model via its front grille guard, carbon-fiber side strips, and 19-inch AMG wheels in a titanium finish. Inside you will find special two-tone leather seats and a commemorative plaque. See more pictures and read our G55 Edition 79 overview
