According to Bugatti, the car was inspired by darkness:“For the EB 16.4 Veyron Sang Noir, Bugatti experimented with darker shades and tonalities. Vincent van Gogh once said: ‘It often seems to me that the night is much more alive and richly coloured than the day.’ The Veyron Sang Noir takes this thought to heart,” Bugatti said on its website.

The iconic Type 57S Atlantic of the 1930s also provided inspiration for this special edition hypercar.IOL, DPA & African News AgencyClick here to sign up for the IOL Motoring Newsletter and receive all the latest motoring news, industry insights and reviews in your inbox every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
