    car show and Bugatti test drive

    We had the first annual Boca Raton Concours de Elegance this last weekend and it was lots of fun. They were giving test drives in the Bugatti (Rennteamer DJC had a chance to drive it, I was busy working) Here are some photos [image]http://[/image]

    10 Sorry about the quality, I did these with my phone camera

    Re: car show and Bugatti test drive

    Nice pictures, of very nice cars!
    My uncle who works for Pinin Farina has driven the Veyron too!! He was not impressed, he said it's not very sophisticated; very simple traction control and too much noises inside the cabin for such an expensive car. The power is incredible though .

    Ciao, Alex

    Re: car show and Bugatti test drive

    One of my friends told me that unbelievable acceleration and stopping. Very easy to drive around town and that the Porsche GT is harder to drive. He said it sounded like a jet under full acceleration and felt like it too. I wish I could have been there, but I have to buy a car for my wife and work.

    I understand what you mean
    I was surprised too! I'll try to explain, I think we have a romanticized view of the veyron because of it's staggering performance and it's technical specifications. He however, has seen it from a professional point of view
    (manufacturing, engineering etc etc), there's more to a car than just performance. I wish I could explain it better, but it's hard because I can't go into any details!!!

    Hope you understand!

    Ciao,
    Alex.

    DJC had a chance to drive this car. He headed out of town, when he gets back I will ask him to write about it.

    Saturday night Black tie event included Jay Leno...one of the auction listings was a VIP seats for Jays tonight show and a private tour of his garage. It bid for $10,000 and Jay stopped the bidding and gave anyone who was willing to bid the money a tour. Raised $100,000 right on the spot, then more people wanted to go the next day. Great money for the boys and girls club.
