Though the collaboration with the Royal Porcelain Factory covered only a few elements fitted across the car, like the Bugatti emblem, the fuel tank cap, and some interior design features, the overall impact of the collaboration resulted in a car with an artistic imprint all over. What this means is that the body of the car is still decked out in its standard production materials of carbon fiber, aluminum, and other materials but some special elements numbering about 12 were carefully and artistically done in Porcelain.
