Originally it was supposed to be a unique combination of two major brands, with the Royal Porcelain Manufactory Berlin producing a limited edition of the Bugatti hood ornament. This dancing elephant in Art Deco style, designed by Ettore Bugatti's brother Rembrandt, already adorned a Bugatti in 1926. The collaboration between the design teams on both sides inspired the process so much that in the end an automotive work of art crowned with white gold was created. Convince yourself of the results!

The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport “L'Or Blanc” is itself like a dancing elephant. In 2012, this special liason was continued with the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport “Wei Long” with a dragon motif. Incidentally, the reason for the motif was the Chinese horoscope, as 2012 was dedicated to the Far Eastern symbol of luck, the dragon.

" Originally it was supposed to be the unique combination of my two greatest passions. But then the encounter between a unique automobile and royal porcelain created something deeply moving for me. " - Jörg Woltmann


Like the L'Or Blanc 2011, the Wei Long 2012 is truly unique. Porcelain elements with dragon motifs were developed at the Royal Porcelain Manufactory in Berlin for both indoor and outdoor use. The car is designed entirely in white and red - an extremely elegant color combination: the crimson red interior looks like a valuable lacquer carving from the Ming period. Subtle red accents in the exterior (rims, taillights) make the white paintwork of the body and the porcelain elements shine even more brilliantly.

The oil and tank caps have a porcelain medallion with a relief of a dragon's head. The wheel hub cover takes up the theme in the form of the old Chinese character for dragon – lóng. The magnificent highlight of the red car interior is a 24 x 19 cm porcelain plate with a dragon's head, which is embedded in the back wall between the seat shells.

For Thomas Wenzel, responsible for product development at the Royal Porcelain Manufactory, the biggest challenge was the design of the dragon: “Designing a dragon not from a European perspective, but rather internalizing the iconography of Chinese and Asian motifs was crucial for this project. "

The Royal Porcelain Manufactory Berlin looks back with pride on this model, which Bugatti not without reason calls the “ Dragon of the Automotive Industry ”. The car costs 1.58 million euros.
