New bugatti: Carbon Fiber Egg Covered with Jewels

Bugatti x Asprey: Luxury Eggs & Digital Art for Elite Collectors.

For the fan of high-end products with a Bugatti (or more) parked in their abode, there’s now something distinctive and eye-catching to decorate shelves, tables, or cabinets as a pleasant reminder of the finer things. A joint venture between the automotive company and the illustrious British jeweler Asprey yielded an array of eggs, though rather not of the edible or Easter Egg hunt sort. That said, one could always hide these gems if they so desired in the yard.

Yes, that’s right! Inside the egg is a solid gold Bugatti Royale Engine No. 4.It’s clear that we’re dealing with something extraordinary and special here. To give you the specifics: the eggshell is crafted from carbon fiber, created through a “long and complex process completely free from disproportion or imperfection.” If you look closely at the shell, you’ll see small elephants, an homage to the hood ornament used on the Bugatti Type 41 Royale. The egg is encased in a sterling silver diamond lattice and set on a curved base, which allows a diamond door to open while mounted. That’s right – a diamond door! And inside the egg is a solid gold Bugatti Royale Engine No. 4.

Yes, something is tucked within the egg as well! Sadly, Bugatti isn’t distributing images of the contents; however, what you’ll find when you open it is a representation of the Chateau Saint Jean. Known by Bugatti fans to be the famous state in Molsheim that was purchased by Ettore Bugatti in 1928, which still remains as a Bugatti asset. To top it off, there’s also a small sterling silver replica of the Type 41 – why not, after all?

Accompanying the Aspery Bugatti physical eggs will be digital eggs created as NFT art. Through the course of a week, the NFT will transition across many stages of an egg-shaped form eventually reverting to the look and structure of the tangible item. In the last months, many automakers have presented NFTs, though Bugatti declares that this is the first ever merged selection by two luxury businesses, unifying physical craft with electronic material on the blockchain.

“Ettore Bugatti was a firm believer in aesthetic engineering, believing that each component of his vehicles should be an art piece,” stated Wiebke Ståhl, the Managing Director of Bugatti International. “He looked at the world through the eyes of an artist, drawing inspiration from his family’s creative works. We still honour these values at Bugatti, collaborating with our partners such as Asprey to create objets d’art in line with our founder’s vision.”

A total of 111 eggs, each with a unique Non-Fungible Token (NFT), will be crafted. The vast majority of these eggs will be black, but the last 12 will come with various colors and customization options, making them the most expensive of the lot with prices beginning at $200,000. If that’s too pricey for you, you can still get your hands on one of the regular eggs starting from $20,000.
