WONDERS: Supercar maker Bugatti reveals a trouser belt that costs £60,000

Limited edition: Only 11 of the belts will be made
Perfect for people with deep pockets: Supercar maker Bugatti reveals a trouser belt that costs £60,000 (more than it costs to buy a Porsche)

·         The belt is a collaboration with Swiss luxury company Roland Iten
·         Only 11 of the precision-made belts will be available to buy
Roland Iten describes the belt as 'a magnificent piece'

After buying this, you may well need to do a bit of belt-tightening of the financial variety.
Bugatti has unveiled an incredible gold or titanium trouser belt which costs more than a new Porsche.
The R22 Bugatti Calibre has been designed to be the Swiss watch of the belt-making world.

It is the result of collaboration between the supercar firm, best known for its 268mph Veyron, and Roland Iten - a Swiss luxury company.
Using watchmaking machinery, Roland Iten has created a solid rose gold and titanium belt with 100 moving, mechanical pieces.
Each component is custom made and carved by precision laser from a solid block of gold or titanium.
The belt, which is limited to just 11 units, comes with an eye-watering £60,000 price-tag.
This makes it more expensive than a Porsche Cayman  - which costs £48,000 - and the same price as a new Range Rover Sport.

But it is still considerably cheaper than a Bugatti Veyron SuperSport, which will set back a wealthy buyer £1.6million.
Owners of the belt will be able to boast that their accessory, as the Roland Iten website states, is 'micro-customisable to any size within a 22mm range' and can be adjusted 'to the exact waist measurement'.
It describes the belt as being 'a magnificent piece' constructed 'from the finest materials'.
