If you’re a billionaire with a penchant for fast – and incredibly exclusive – cars, then we might have found your ideal new home.
Exotic hypercar maker Bugatti has unveiled a new luxury apartment complex in Dubai consisting of 171 Riviera Mansions and 11 Sky Mansion Penthouses in the heart of the developing Business Bay area.
As well as roof-top swimming pools and a private beach, the tower block also features two car lifts allowing residents to take their bespoke motors to their apartment’s front doors.
No prices have yet to be confirmed but given it’s extravagant Chiron hypercar costs in excess of £3.2million, don’t expect these properties to be cheap.
From hypercars to hyperstructures: Plans for Bugatti’s first residential development in Dubai have been unveiled this week, with the curving tower consisting of 182 luxury ‘mansion’ apartments and penthouses
With Bugatti’s Chiron hypercar costing in excess of £3.2million, don’t expect the Dubai properties to be cheap…
Bugatti’s first residential development is being built in conjunction with premium real estate company Binghatti.
The French hypercar maker wants to extend its exclusive products beyond vehicle and clothing lines by branching into the housing sector.
Having amassed an extensive client list since the brand’s rejuvenation in the early 2000s with the success of the £1million Veyron, Bugatti’s contacts list of billionaire property moguls is likely bigger than any other auto brand.
And if you thought its cars were eye catching, check out the distinctive structure of the Bugatti Residence that is due to be constructed in the affluent central business district in the UAE’s most populated city.

The curved building offers floor-to-ceiling windows to provide unobstructed views of the surrounding city
It is said to have a strong French Riviera influence, with the building’s ‘hyper form’ made up of curved levels and to provide each mansion with unobstructed views of the city.
Every apartment will have floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise natural light, while the high ceilings and open-plan living spaces are designed to make each property feel more spacious.
In a joint statement with Binghatti, the premium car firm said: ‘The collaboration between the two revered brands aims to depict synergies that achieve unparalleled excellence.
‘Drawing upon the rich and diverse creative heritage of both brands, the Bugatti and Binghatti collaboration project has at its nucleus a meticulously designed structure featuring a distinctive façade complemented by intricately designed interiors.
‘With its serene undertones, the hyper-form will juxtapose the city’s bustling energy – a retreat in the heart of the metropolis.’
Every mansion and penthouse in the 182-property building will be ‘absolutely unique’ and feature ‘bespoke curated layouts’.
And the on-site facilities aren’t bad, either.
Bugatti Residence has rooftop pools on each level and also boasts a private members club and spa facility
The building will feature a French Riviera-inspired private beach (pictured), chef’s table, private valet and fitness club
The complex will have its own private Riviera-inspired beach and residents-only roof-top pools, jacuzzi spa and fitness club.
Among other luxury living amenities is a chef’s table, private valet and members club.
The residence also provides tailored services for its well-heeled inhabitants, including a bespoke chauffeur and concierge service.
And it wouldn’t be a suitable Bugatti home unless it has the appropriate parking facilities for supercars.
That’s why the tower boasts two garage-to-penthouse car lifts, allowing residents to transport their exotic vehicles up to their apartments.

It means Bugatti owners can drive their £3.2million Chirons (like the one pictured) into the garage and ultimately transport it to their front door
Bugatti Residence is being built in conjunction with luxury developer Binghatti. There is currently no word on how much each mansion apartment and penthouse suite will cost

Bugatti isn’t the only luxury car brand dabbling in real estate. Apartment in a Bentley-branded residential tower in Miami went on sale last year
Aston Martin is also developing a company-first apartment block in Miami, pictured. It consists of 391 luxury residences priced from $1.5million (£1.2million) to upwards of $50million (£40million)
Bugatti isn’t the first luxury car brand to dabble in the world of real estate.
Apartments in Bentley’s first complex in Miami went on sale last year for $4.2million (£3.4million), which is close to the 66-storey glass-and-steel waterfront tower built by fellow British car brand Aston Martin.
Construction of the Aston Martin Residence began in downtown Miami in 2017 and will consist of 391 luxury residences priced from $1.5million (£1.2million) to upwards of $50million (£40million).
Back in 2015, Mercedes-Benz also dipped its toe into the luxury property game by unveiling a collection of apartments in Kensington, West London, made available for the global ultra-wealthy needing a short-term place to stay in Britain.
Each one was available to rent at around £400 a night.
