    Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    Way and I were attending the AM DBS Australian launch last night when we spied a carefully concealed car in the AM workshop.

    When I saw the width of the tyres it was a dead give away! Veyron!!!!

    Towards the end of the night, and well after the DBS launch, they pulled the cover off.

    I was never that huge a fan of the Veyron's lines, but when you get up close to it.....it really blows you away!

    Sorry about the quality of the pics, i wasn't expecting it to be there...so only had my camera phone!

    This was the car leaving this morning Parki.


    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    And this is my baby wanting to check it out himself.


    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    Wow....could they pick a more beaten up transport truck!!!???!!!

    How fast did they get it up to between the Workshop and the tow truck? ;-)

    Did you try out the baby seat in the Veyron?

    Yeah...sorry guys....this credit crunch has really hurt me....so i'm returning it. And i didn't want to fork out for a decent tow truck! he he

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    Haha I asked the tow truck driver the same question this morning. He said that at least they can show off the car on the road because it is an open truck. Haha.

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    Oh and Parki, they probably hit about 5kmh! Super fast! :P But that DSG gearbox got a bit of a workout as they were inching it up the truck. Took about 3 mins in total.

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    Glamorous!

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    Wonder if this was just here in Oz for a show or if it's locally owned. Any idea guys?

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    Trivett owns it. It's at Sandown right now for 2 press members to drive it plus a couple of prospective buyers.

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    Thanks for posting.

    Quite frankly I am much more interested in the Astons in the background than the Veyron. The Veyron has always seemed totally irrelevant to me, and I like MOST things with 4 wheels.

    I used to think the same way.....till i came face to face with it. It looks WAY better in the flesh! Can only imagine what it is like to drive.

    I bet it will also do a lap or two at the Albert Park GP this weekend.

    Anyone have any tickets for me?

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    wow what a beauuuuty

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    I would certainly feel uncomfortable driving it on the road, and keeping it in a garage defeats the purpose.

    So, where is this car relevant? Maybe on the track? Doesn't really perform there either... (Note, top gear? fifth gear? test where a lotus exige/elise(?) was just as quick on the track?)...

    For that kind of money you can buy some serious older Formula racing equipment.

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    This car is amazing. The exhaust is so large it could be a bed for your baby

    I love that deep black color on the Veyron, especially in real this color is so deep and meaningful!

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    I like the Veyron more and more. Yes, for a car it's expensive, but overall there are millions of houses, planes, boats, necklaces, paintings, etc in the world that cost tens and hundreds times as much.
    If you take money out of the equation, and believe me that there are people out there who could care less if it is 1,3 mil or 2,3 mil euros, then you have to concede that it is a very neat thing.

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    What really surprised me about this car when I first saw it inthe flesh was how small it was - in pictures it looks huge but it's actually very compact.

    And yes, it looks stunning in the black - but imagine the size of the stone chips at 240mph

    100% with you there. Never been a fan of it's looks until I saw it last night up close. It's got so much presence. Stunning indeed.

    Oh and you are right, it is at Albert Park right now as we speak.

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    The Veyron is hot, I would have one if it wasn't so unreasonable.

    Re: Bugatti Veyron at my local Aston Dealer

    Today I watched the Veyron accelerate from standstill on the straight at Albert Park. OMG, it's brutal! It's almost like a very powerful electric radio control car looking from the stand. It just looks like all the torque and traction is available for it and there are no launching issues at all. My respect for this car grows with each viewing of it.
