Bugatti’s La Maison Pur Sang restoration program launched in 2020 at the company’s headquarters in Molsheim, France, and earlier this month the first customer examples of the Veyron completed in the program were presented.
The program’s French name roughly translates to “The Thoroughbred House.”
Bugatti itself ran a Veyron Grand Sport prototype through the program in 2021, and that car only received a restoration. The two customer Veyrons that underwent the program also received a round of updates.
The customer cars, which both belong to an owner in Dubai, were early versions of the Veyron coupe and Veyron Grand Sport roadster. Over a nine-month process, both cars underwent a detailed check of all components and subsystems, in addition to receiving some aesthetic updates requested by the owner.
The coupe, which was delivered in 2005, making it one of the earliest Veyrons, was given a new two-tone finish for the exterior and new leather trim for the cabin. The roadster, which was delivered in 2009, also got new cabin colors.
According to Bugatti, the owner is now considering how to restore additional Veyrons in his collection.
“In my opinion, a Veyron demands to be kept in the best condition possible,” the owner said in a statement. “It’s the only way to pay homage to such a groundbreaking Bugatti masterpiece.”
Part of the La Maison Pur Sang program includes a certification process. To receive the certification, a car is stripped down and all parts identified and matched with internal documents to ensure only original parts have been used. Bugatti said around 10 customers have used the certification process for their own cars since the program was launched.
