Bugatti commissioned renowned French sculptor Bernar Venet to adorn the Grand Sport with his unique visual idiom. This edition features a sharp red-to-black gradient that incorporates mathematical equations relating to the output of the car’s enormous engine. At the interior the same theme continues, showing the similar color transition with the bright orange formulas on door panels and rusted dash panels and leather trims.
“A Bugatti is already a work of art in itself, one that transports both its beholder and its driver into new dimensions of reality,” said Bernar Venet. “I realized how I could translate my passion for mathematical equations and scientific treatises into three-dimensional form. My works are usually self-referential. So I found the idea of translating the equations of the Bugatti engineers onto the bodywork of the car very appealing.”
This unique sculptural work will be on view at the Rubell Family Collection in Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach (Dec. 6-9).
