Transformers-Themed Bugatti Veyron Still Looking For A Home

Eighteen months ago, a unique Transformers-themed Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse hit California’s used car market for $2.1 million.

Fast forward to the final quarter of 2017 and the one-off is still looking for a new home and now has an asking price of $1.89 million thanks to iLusso. Will it sell? We’re not so sure.

As these images show, the Vitesse really is unlike any other. It was commissioned by the original owner with a blue paint scheme that includes a large Autobot logo on the hood. The bespoke touches continue inside with bright blue and black camoflage and ‘Daniel’ stitched into the headrests, presumably the name of the original owner.

As a whole, the Transformers theme is quite subtle. However, such a Veyron would only appeal to a very small minority of individuals wealthy enough to purchase the French hypercar. Herein lies the problem of individualizing a car to the nth degree, it dramatically hampers the possibility of selling the car.

If you had $1.9 million, would you buy this Transformers-inspired Bugatti?

    the original owner is A dope, with too much money. HE RUINED A GREAT CAR.

    the owner actually thought he was creating a studio car? for what movie was it to be used in? NONE. what an idiot.

    Of all the things to theme a car with… Transformers would probably be 2nd to last on my list. Ebola is last.

        I really don’t like the Transformers franchise.

          How come? Is it the movies?

  • Scott Robertson

    is the thing even in the country legally? It’s history suggests that it’s not

    Nobody seems to want a Bugatti. The Chiron is still on sale. Hypercar like LaFerrari and P1 were sold out while still existing only on paper. And the Ferraris values is 4 times nowadays after 4 years. I don’t know but it’s very weird

      I think that the reason is exactly this one – “And the Ferraris values is 4 times nowadays after 4 years”. It was fueled by the trend (7-8 years ago) old Ferraries to skyrocket in price. Then someone decided that the newer cars will do the same and here is the result. I remember F40 and F50 in a range of 400,000-700,000$ 7-8 years ago. Now you can’t find F40 in less than 1M and F50 less than 2M. Even worse for lower class like F355 – it was around 20,000 EUR (25,000 $) and now it is more than 60,000 EUR. Why? Are they more reliable than Bugatti? More rare? More powerful? More usable? How is that cooler to have Ferrari Enzo or LaFerrari than Bugatti Veyron. Isn’t it the last one the inevitable comparison for Ferrari, Koenigsegg, Hennessey, Pagani, etc. Everyone compared somehow to Veyron – if it was not speed it was luxury or craftsmanship … sometimes even price :).

      My guess is this – someday, someone will say that Bugatti (especially if VW axe it) are ultra cool and prices will be 8 digits in 6 months especially for well kept cars.


    Maybe he should remove all that crap from the car and he might be able to sell it or give it to Shia Lebouf.

    if after 18 months, you still can’t sell
    your Autobot themed Veyron,
    maybe that wasn’t the best
    theme to choose for it.
