The Bugatti Veyron is a technological marvel of the automotive world – but also one never-ending source of uphill and downhill stories.
We’ll let you be the judge of the category we should attribute to the following and resort to just plain fact presentation. We have here one of the many Veyron editions that have been introduced over the years – and if you’re confused about the designation we may kindly remind you this has nothing to do with the World Rally Championship. Instead, the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse WRC has to do with the Molsheim’s vehicle being the holder of a World Record for speed. A Grand Sport Vitesse hit 254.04 mph at the VW Group’s Ehra-Lessien facility – and Bugatti decided to celebrate the achievement by having a special series of eight Veyron units.
Instead of appreciating the almost exquisite and unique model it has in the garage, the owner of this Grand Sport Vitesse WRC decided to go all Jamie Oliver on us and bake donuts. And we may be witnesses here to the most expensive tire smoke ever – considering the entire set of Veyron wheels can go up to $42,000. You may understand why all the hooning when we tell you this Grand Sport Vitesse WRC is owned by Dutch hooning team DutchBugs – they are known for the honing practice from behind the wheel of a “regular”, 1001 PS Veyron.
