Great first drive report here with the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Enjoy!
Parked in the driveway of a small private hotel outside of Seville, Spain, the three cars before us represented an insurance loss close to 10 million dollars.
Pierre-Henri Raphanel, the seasoned racer who piloted the record-setting Super Sport to an uncorked 268 mph admonished the three assembled journalists with, “A minor shunt in this will likely cost €500,000 (nearly $700,000 USD). You would feel very bad to be responsible for such a thing.” Raphenel continued darkly, “The people here are not used to seeing these cars on the road, and you become a target as drivers fixate on you.”
Never before had I so badly not wanted to become the subject of a YouTube video.
