From the Chiron to the Veyron and even the unbelievable Centodieci, Bugatti’s weight within the automotive world is one not easily matched by the vast majority. Not only has the firm dabbled in the likes of mind-blowing hypercars, but their reach has also gone as far as the fashion world and now makes its way into the realm of pool. Not swimming pools, but pool tables.

Introducing, the handcrafted Bugatti Pool Table designed by IXO. This unique creation is an amalgamation of carbon fibre, billet aluminum, and aniline leather. The ball pockets are crafted from stainless steel and covered with leather inside. The tables surfaced are covered with an Iwan Simonis 860 table cloth, Many of us would be too afraid to play a game of pool on this table considering all the expensive and exclusive materials that were used…

Similarly to the exclusivity of the firm’s hypercars, only 30 examples of this pool table will be made. Underneath its lavish exterior is a high-quality, polished aluminum frame that has been completely CNC machined when seen on its own revealing the detailed inner workings. The pool cues are made out of carbon fibre, with the bottoms being anodized inc machined aluminum appearing to have the same design as the buttons found in the Bugatti cars.

Bugatti hasn’t just created a pool table, the accompanying “accessories” are similarly crafted. Included with the pool table is a Siemens Simatic S7-1200 PLC outfitted with a 13-inch touchscreen. It acts as a control panel that allows for enhanced control of the pool table, as well as a pool cue storage device.

It is finished in the same materials as the pool table and is customisable. Alongside these is a 74-inch LED light strip sporting the Bugatti emblem. The pool table and light fixture are controlled by the Siemens control panel.
