    Bugatti Veyron Grand sport test drive

     well folks..  had the chance to go and test drive the veyron last week in mulsheim, as i am seriously thinking about one... well all i can say .... i'm speechless.. plain speechless.. i have no words to describe, and after visisting, seeing how and from what its built and driving it, as weird as it may sound, its a cheap car ... a bargain, and they will never be another one.. 

    as for the drive, its one of the easiest car to drive, very comfortable, and each time my feet floored the gas pedal, it was an... earthquake!!!! that thing is insane! sick fast and will destroy anything, absolutly anything on wheels. the speedo is faster than the rpm ! you see a car in the horizon, floor the gas pedal, take a 2G hit in your body, count to three, and find yourself  a milimeter away from his rear bumper... where you hit the brakes and after the airbrake deploys, you just dont understand how that insane car stopped...  and the sound.. oh my god the sound.. especially in the grand sport without the glass roof ... the whistle of the 4 turbo's when you hit the gas , and the sound of the 4 dump valves releasing the boost is unreal...SmileySmiley   

    the gearbox is perfect.. in other words.. if you can then you SHOULD! IMG_0609.jpg

    PS : mike, consider one, or arrange a test drive , you will be impressed of what you will experience. it makes all other cars around simply pointless and useless. 

    Kudo's to Piech for his persistence that allowed such a cruise missile to exist, few or no man would have made this possible....

     i messed up with the pics... the one with chrome fenders is the limited edition " villa d'este"   the 2 pics on the track are with dynamic mode on. i'm in the brown grand sport, and my friend in the black coupe.

    the white brand sport is plain sick! best colour!

    Re: Bugatti Veyron Grand sport test drive

    The one your'e in Dimitri looks titanium more than brown on my screen, a nice color for the veyron. My problem with this has always been the toilet seat grille, I wonder if they would paint it body color to lessen the effect.

    Classy looking joint, like the pebble driveway. Thanks for sharing.

    Buy it, you only live once. 


    Re: Bugatti Veyron Grand sport test drive

    Dimitri, can I trade places with you? 

    Thanks so much for the fantastic write up and photo's!


    Re: Bugatti Veyron Grand sport test drive

    I have no words.

    And even at $1MM, Bugatti still doesn't make a profit on this car. Ain't that amazing!

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: Bugatti Veyron Grand sport test drive

    The white one is stunning. You're a lucky guy to even be able to test drive one of those machines!


    Re: Bugatti Veyron Grand sport test drive

      I' m speechless . Maybe it is not too safe to keep it in Libanon ..I can look after it in the Lausanne-Geneva area

    Thanks for sharing your experience and pictures with us, great posting!

    To my shame I have to admit that I never drove a Veyron myself, so here's where my envy jumps in...you're a lucky bastard. SmileySmiley

    If I could afford one, especially the Grand Sport, I would buy it in an instant.

    You really must have had a blast of a day and if you can afford it, GO for it! Smiley

    Really simple. Just go the page where you posted the video - click on the video so it opens in a new page,  then copy the URL in your address window  and paste it here.

    Random example from a friend of mine since she Video blogs all the damn time... Smiley

    You're out of luck, Throt.

    Just heard on the radio that the Eurolottery win of over 120 million Euro went to just one guy in Spain! Smiley

    I think he'll be getting to work late tomorrow morning. Smiley
