Wiebke Ståhl, Managing Director at Bugatti International, said: “Buben&Zorweg shares our ethos of creating unique masterpieces. By working closely with their team for more than 18 months we have developed a range of limited edition high-security safes that embody the spirit of both of our brands. Timeless design, ultimate craftsmanship and technology that pushes boundaries.”
The Buben&Zorweg for Bugatti Hyper Safe Collection features a visual identity linked inextricably to Bugatti hyper sports cars. On either side of the safe, a controllable and dimmable Ambient Lighting feature is inspired by the signature Bugatti C-Line that adorns the Chiron1. Meanwhile, at the top of each safe, a shark-tail line evokes the Type 57 Atlantic; a motif that lives on in Bugatti design today, including in the Chiron.
The safe door itself is completely reengineered, consisting of a high strength steel core and a unique carbon fiber surface available in various color shades, just like Bugatti’s modern hyper sports cars. The four stainless steel elements that adorn the front of the Hyper Safe Collection are designed specifically for this purpose. The handle itself is a complex shape sculpted for style and ease of use – echoing Bugatti’s form follows performance mantra – which requires over 3,000 milling steps to perfect.
Each of these stainless-steel elements, as well as those used throughout the whole Hyper Safe Collection are finished with a Light-Arch-Protection Coating (LAP Coating), which reinforces them and makes them more resilient and resistant to scratches.
Three bespoke personalities are available in the Hyper Safe Collection. The ‘Hyper Light’ model combines Napa Leather in Pearl Beige & Shadow Grey, with the LAP Coating in Stone matt finish and the safe door in Light Super Composite Fiber. The ‘Hyper Dark’ model, meanwhile, blends Napa Leather in Mocha Brown & Powder Grey, with LAP Coating in Copper matt finish and the safe door in Dark High-Tech Carbon Fiber.
Of all models, the ‘Hyper Track’ represents Bugatti’s DNA in its purest form. Expanded black high-tech carbon fiber elements on the front, side and top are, paired with a Napa Leather in Pace Blue – reminiscent of Bugatti’s ‘French Racing Blue’. The LAP Coating is in Onyx matt finish and the safe door in Track High-Tech Carbon Fiber
Only 25 of each Hyper Safe model will ever be built.
Buben&Zorweg CEO, Florian vom Bruch said: “In order to create this truly unique masterpiece collection with various world firsts in the high-security safe arena our expert teams worked tirelessly. When you question the status quo and start with a single line on a white paper just with your vision in mind to create a class of its own it is indeed a magical moment to finally see those masterpieces of engineering and craftsmanship made real.”
The first products of the Buben&Zorweg for Bugatti collection arrived in 2020, crowned by the ‘Grande Illusion Chiron’ safe. Inspired by the Chiron Super Sport 300+2.
The multifunction safe, topped with a Flying Minute Tourbillon Clock, weighs 215 kg and opens elegantly upwards when unlocked by biometric fingerprint or transponder chip.
The ‘Grande Illusion Chiron’ lifts the valuables kept inside, such as your favorite watch, a necklace or the keys for the hyper sports car, from an embossed column. A special drawer which shields from radio waves has been developed to guarantee particularly stylish and secure storage of keys.
