Bugatti unveiled ƎB.03 Edition with Champagne Carbon, which is inspired by Bolide – the most extreme Bugatti creation ever. The new champagne is the latest result of a partnership between two brands, first established in 2018. The very first creation, champagne ƎB.01, celebrated Bugatti’s 110th anniversary, the second, the ƎB.02, marked the anniversary of the Chiron Super Sport 300+2 breaking the magical 300 mph barrier. Contained within the carbon fiber wrapped bottle – finished in black and orange – was a 2006 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru.
The ƎB.03 Edition features a dual tone exterior, comprising of both blue and black carbon fiber – a first within the Champagne Carbon For Bugatti Collection. The Bolide’s ‘X’ design motif is showcased on both the right and left side of the ƎB.03 bottle.
Inside the exclusive bottle is a vintage 2013 Blanc de Blancs – the result of a cold and wet winter in 2013, followed by a cool spring and a late grape harvest. Such conditions produce an intense and fresh wine, with good acidity and excellent ageing potential.
This creation, Champagne Carbon ƎB.03, is a breathtaking technical accomplishment. For the first time we have managed to combine two colors of fiber in one bottle. A complete piece of art made by our master craftsmen. The black fiber base perfectly contrasts the main body of the bottle, an intense sky blue. On the champagne side, this 2013 vintage brings with it initial scents of citrus, followed by aromas of spring flowers. Then a growing intensity toward yellow citrus, toasty notes and aromatic herbs. On the palate it provides an initial intensity, followed by a creamier more velvety texture. The finish reveals hints of acidity. The ƎB.03 will enhance a delicate recipe such as a scallop ceviche, a red tuna sashimi or a filet of Saint-Pierre with citrus fruits. – Alexandre Mea, CEO at Champagne Carbon
The Bolide pays homage to Bugatti’s motorsport past of the 1920s, which was built around lightweight agile cars at a time when most racing cars were enormous powerful brutes. The track-only production car sits low to the ground, with sharp edges, extended diffusers and a gaping roof-mounted intake critical for cooling. In combination with the striking rear diffuser, the dominant rear wing results in high downforce and therefore also optimum traction. As with other Bugatti vehicles, the design team opted for a for a dual-tone finish but the proportion of bare carbon fiber is greater than in other Bugatti cars to reflect Bolide’s purity of purpose.
The ƎB.03 Edition is the perfect addition to any Bugatti enthusiast’s collection.
