Damac Bugatti villas: Admire your car from the sofa in Dh36m Dubai homes
Jeremy Clarkson take note. The world’s first homes designed around the Bugatti sports car are set to be built in Dubai.
The seven bedroom villas, which will be built within Damac’s Akoya Oxygen project on the Umm Sequeim Road on the outskirts of Dubai, will be literally built around the iconic French sports car.
Seemingly designed for rich businessmen for whom buying a sports car isn’t quite enough to cope with a mid life crisis, not only will the homes be built to mirror the curved Bugatti Veyron design, but each home will include “an indoor vehicle display area” where glass panels between the living room and garage will mean that owners can admire their cars from the comfort of their own sofa.
Prices for the villas, which will overlook the planned Tiger Woods designed, Trump World Golf Club, and will be showcased at the Cityscape Global property show later this week, will be in the region of Dh36 million.
Damac did not say how many villas would be included in the estate.
Built by Damac, the glitzy Dubai developer known for offering customers sports cars and jet skis if they buy luxury apartments, the project has been christened Ettore 971, named after Ettore Bugatti the founder of the renowned French Luxury super sports car brand ‘971’ signifying the international code for the UAE.
“We know that many of our loyal customers are huge fans of the Bugatti super sports car brand and the opportunity to live in the world’s first villas styled in Bugatti’s design language featuring key codes of the brand’s DNA is a unique opportunity to experience this fantastic brand in a whole new way,” said Ziad El Chaar, managing director, Damac Properties.
“The added touch of being able to see your car from many areas of the living quarters adds to the immersive design incorporated throughout these truly luxurious homes,” he added.
