Bugatti selected Venet to create the car and provided it to him. He painted the car orange and brown and used a scientific motif for the design. As the orange front blends into the brown rear, you can see various scientific algorithms. The front wheels also have this orange design, and the rear wheels are brown. The interior door panels have the same motif. 

“A Bugatti is already a work of art in itself, one that transports both its beholder and its driver into new dimensions of reality. I realized how I could translate my passion for mathematical equations and scientific treatises into three-dimensional form. My works are usually self-referential. So I found the idea of translating the equations of the Bugatti engineers onto the bodywork of the car very appealing," said Venet.

Venet was born in France but does most of his work from New York and is known for is large sculptures. He is known to incorporate scientific imagery and concepts into his art. 

The Rubell Family Collection is the one of the world's largest, privately owned contemporary art collections. They have been collecting art since 1964. It established a 45,000ft² exhibition area in Miami in 1983 that includes a sculpture garden.  

The car will be on display from Wednesday, December 5, through Sunday, December 9, at the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, Florida.
