Bugatti reveals world's most expensive pool table at £200,000 for superyacht owners

Bugatti has released the world's most expensive pool table which will allow superyacht owners to play while at sea.

The £217,000 'self-levelling' table uses sophisticated computer technology to ensure the playing surface remains stable even on the choppiest of seas.

Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Emir of Abu Dhabi, is thought to have expressed an interest in buying one for his £400million 590ft (180 metre) yacht Azzam — the world's largest yacht.

The French firm will only make 30 limited edition models, which are expected to sell out within days of their release in the coming weeks.

London-based yacht broker Chris Cecil-Wright told the Daily Telegraph the table would be an ideal 'toy' for the super rich.

He said: 'This is a lovely toy, perfect for people who are so immensely wealthy that if they can imagine something for their boat, whatever it is, then it’s possible.

'If you can imagine it you can make it possible.'

The table is being made by Spanish carbon fibre specialist company IXO for Bugatti's lifestyle collection.

Its frame is made out of titanium and aluminium and the table meets the standards used by professionals in competitions.

The table uses a gyroscopic sensor to level the playing surface and adjust for movements on sea. 

Bugatti said: 'Each leg can move to compensate for the movement of a ship and remain perfectly level. 

'The system can adjust in just five milliseconds, and the movement is completed in total silence with vibration-free adjustment.'

Each table comes with super-light carbon fibre pool cues (pictured) and a 13in (33cm) touch screen built in to keep track of scores

Deliveries will begin in June and buyers will receive pictures of their table as it is made before it arrives. 

Pedro Sanchez, general manager at IXO, said the company has taken every effort to make the table 'extraordinary'.

He said: 'When we started developing the Bugatti Pool Table project, we knew we had to be different and excel in all areas in order to be extraordinary. Nothing has been spared.'
