Would you part with $1.2m for this Mansory-modified Bugatti Veyron?
If you're looking for a car that'll help you stand out in a place like LA, this million-dollar Mansory might just do the trick.
In a place like Los Angeles, it's safe to say that if you want a car that stands out you're going to have to dig deep to find something rare enough and flashy enough – something like this particular 2008 Bugatti Veyron.
Currently listed for sale for US$1,199,000 at Wires Only, a noted car dealer in LA with many celebrity clientele, this particular Veyron certainly ought to be enough to help its eventual buyer stand out as the French hypercar has been given some distinctive modifications by German firm Mansory.
Dubbed the Mansory Linea Vivere, this Veyron is one of a mere handful to feature these modifications, and is the sole example finished in red, so that gives it big ticks in the boxes for both rarity and flashiness.
Externally, perhaps the most noteworthy change is the use of a unique square ultra-light carbon fibre weave for the majority of the bodywork to give it a truly unique look.
To give it a bit of a facelift, it's also been fitted with a shortened front-end with a moulded front lip, new side skirts with a more aerodynamic design, and modified wings with sharpened air intakes.
Inside, the Veyron's interior has been overhauled as well with it now featuring swathes of quilted black and white leather, a redesigned steering wheel, plenty of trim that carries the square exposed carbon fibre weave of the exterior through to the interior, and of course some 'Mansory' and 'Linea Vivere' badging.
Of course, the Veyron's mammoth 8.0-litre quad-turbocharged W16 engine still features behind the cockpit, with it making a claimed 1200bhp in this instance which is still sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Although it's currently the highest mileage Veyron for sale in the USA according to duPont Registry with 13,769 miles on the clock, lower-mileage examples selling for as US$1.9 million mean that this seems to be a good deal given its extensive modifications. Well, that is, a good deal to the sort of person perhaps considering dropping over a million dollars on a car.
