They really are awesome to look at. This one shows up at each of the Cigars & Cars events at my smoke shop. The guy also owns the ones below the Bugatti picture.

He also owns a Senna but I've not been outside the shop when it shows up.

I worked for Manhattan Motorcars back in 2013 (they weren't yet a Bugatti dealer but had two).

I was very fortunate to be able to drive not one but two different Veyrons when I was taking pictures for our advertising. I mean you can barely press the gas peddle and the sheer torque just makes it go. They are actually quite comfortable but are extremely low to the ground so you have to be careful which height setting you are in. Shifter is quite confusing as well as it's a J shifter but with no markings on it..

Did you get to take it outside of the city for photos? Would be a bummer to be stuck in Manhattan with such a beast!

No I didn't. I'll see if I can dig up the photos, took them in meatpacking district. Used Car manager would probably kill me if he knew I took it up the west side highway which I didn't. I really should have though!

Fun fact about veyrons: you can thrash a fresh set of $20k tires in two laps on the Slovakia ring track.
And you can also turn the WHEELS purple from braking, not just the discs.

Let me search for the pic...
