Bugatti has just launched the “La Maison Pur Sang” department, responsible for certifying the authenticity of its models
As already happens with several other prestigious brands, also the Bugatti now has a department responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of its cars and granting them a well-deserved certificate of authenticity.
This new program was named “La Maison Pur Sang” and is responsible for preserving the thoroughbred credentials of each of the brand’s models, whether they are the most historic or contemporary, even if, for this, it is necessary to carry out some type of restoration or re-manufacture a component.
Have you seen it here the Chiron Super Sport ?
The first model to receive this certification and to debut in the “La Maison Pur Sang” program is a 2008 Veyron 16.4, the first Grand prototype Sport, which made its debut at Pebble Beach in 2008. He was responsible for presenting the idea of the brand, which combined the benefits of a luxury hyper-sport with the possibility of doing it outdoors.
This Veyron Grand Sport has always been used as a demo model and has traveled virtually all over the planet. Its bodywork is painted in a metallic silver tone with a Cognac leather interior, but it has never received a registration of ownership.
In 2020, Bugatti returned to rescue him and brought him back to Molsheim, with the aim of enrolling him in the “La Maison Pur Sang” program. It began by being completely dismantled and all the components that attested to its originality were identified. The fact that it is located in Molsheim means that all the new components that are required are of the same quality as the originals, as they are produced in the same place.

The restoration of this model took about four months, with all body panels being prepared and repainted with the original tones. The same happened with the cabin, which was relined with the original leather and received new components such as the center console, so that it would be exactly the same as the original. The boxes, manuals, the keys of this model, everything was restored to a completely new state of conservation, as if it had just been produced in 2008.
This unit It will forever go down in history as the prototype that made the Grand Sport version known to the world in 2008, I have captured the interest of many collectors and helped to win some orders. And now, it is identified with a metal plate, which identifies it, as well as all the historical documentation and monitoring of the passage through this new department.
Cars Bugatti’s are one of the most sought after by collectors, mainly due to the long history that many models accumulate in competition or in what is related to their owners.
