It’s one of the rarest cars in the world – and here it is with a completely unique paint job.
A multi-millionaire motorist caused a stir in London by showing off this incredible black and gold Saudi-registered Bugatti Veyron. The £1million supercar was spotted outside London’s exclusive Dorchester Hotel after being flown over this week.
It is one of the rarer convertible Veyrons, known as the Grand Sport, with just 150 built by the French manufacturer. The Saudi-registered car, which wears the ‘1’ plate, started off as a white Veyron but was recently sent to Dubai for a makeover. Customising firm Foilacar then wrapped the Veyron in gold and black – transforming it into one of the world’s most eye-catching supercars. It it has become the star attraction outside The Dorchester since arriving this week with enthusiasts clamouring to get a photo of the 252mph supercar.
The gold and black Veyron was parked next to a pearlescent Mercedes SLS Gullwing and a number of foreign-registered Rolls-Royces outside the Mayfair hotel.
It is the latest Arab car to arrive in London as part of ‘The Season’, when the super-wealthy swap the desert for Britain’s temperate climate. The Veyron Grand Sport was unveiled by the ultra-posh Molsheim firm in 2008 as a convertible alternative to the then world’s fastest car.
It is powered by an 8-litre engine which develops around 1,000bhp – giving the Grand Sport a 0-62mph time of 2.7 seconds and a staggering top speed of 252mph. When it went on sale it became the world’s fastest convertible, only to lose its crown last year to the new Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. By: dailymail
