This Fabergé-style Bugatti egg is made entirely out of carbon fiber and precious metals, and it costs the same as a Lamborghini.
The egg was ‘hatched’ by Bugatti in partnership with Asprey, a UK-based jeweler, and the attention to detail makes it quite compelling.

Even though they look like Fabergé eggs, the inspiration actually came from a little known fact about Bugatti.
Legend has it that the iconic Bugatti front grille (pictured below) was inspired by the shape of an egg.
Known as the Royale Edition, the Bugatti egg is available in different colorways.
The egg shell is made of carbon fiber and adorned with multiple elephant motifs, a tribute to the Bugatti Lalique, a famous sculpture of an elephant created by Ettore Bugatti’s brother Rembrandt (yep, that was his real name).
The elephants are made from sterling silver, as is the lattice around the egg shell.
But the real cherry is found inside the egg, where you’ll find a miniature replica of the Molsheim factory where Bugatti was founded.
Unfortunately, Bugatti hasn’t provided any pictures of said miniature, and the company hasn’t been generous in terms of information provided either.

We do know a couple of things, though.
First, considering the price tag and potential customer base, some form of customization is to be expected.
And then second, production of the Bugatti egg should remain limited to 111 pieces only, with incremental prices.
The first hundred eggs should be priced between $20,000 and $50,000.
Meanwhile, the other 11 eggs will be available with prices ranging between $150,000 and $200,000.
One more thing, this being 2023, each physical egg will also come with its digital equivalent in the form of a Non-Fungible Token (NFT).
