    Well, I heard about this car being at a local car dealership, so me and some buddies went to go check it out. On the way there we see it driving the other way. I turned around and video taped it the best i could. I had a video of him getting on it, but some how it got deleted :banghead:. he fully got on it, but i guess its not on tape. here are some pics of while and after he was driving. and here is the video of him just driving.

    They should've called it the "Doorknob" instead of Veyron.. apparently everyone gets a turn!

    Cool pics, BTW. It's a lot smaller in person, huh?

    How did you get to drive the car? I suppose that you must have some serious connections at the dealership?

    Here was my short write up:

    Just got back from a very gracious Veyron drive, compliments of the guys at Beverly Hills Lambo. Now mind you, this was not just any test drive, this was a full on ring out as much of the car as humanly possible on the street of L.A. drive, not a 5 minute trip around the block. The drive consisted not only of me cruising around in traffic, but SEVERAL full on acceleration bursts to as much as 135mph from traffic light to traffic light, and being able to STOP!!!! All I can say, is im in love. The car is rediculous. As far as what it feels to drive, the best I can liken it to, is that it feels like a Murcielago, with 5X the power, with a seemless transmission.

    Heres how it went. First go out with the test driver, who explains the car to me, and gives us some inclanation to the capabilities of the car. The tranny has three functions, click it to the right, and it is in drive. You just cruise like in any automatic car. Car is soo easy to drive, and visibility is very good, even though the seats are set too far down for my likeing. This is fixed at the factory, as they are matched to each persons requirements. Drive is for easy, normal driving. Then you click it again, and you are in Sport mode, or you can go into paddle shifters. I kept it in Sport, where the car holds the gear you are in, and shifts at 6400rpm. The tranny actually always has the next gear already engaged, making your shifts totally seemless. From short stoplight to stoplight, I hit slightly over 135mph, and what amazed me was the cars ability to stop. In between short bursts in traffic, everytime id get on it, instantly you are doing triple digits with brakes to match.

    People on the streets definitely recognize the car also, as it stops traffic wherever it goes. We must have also made a Camaro SS drivers day, when the test driver gave him a test of what the BUG could do, leaving him instantly behind.

    As I said, the feel of the car, is much closer to a Murcielago, then to say a Porsche Carrera Gt in my opinion. It was a fantastic experience, and many, many thanks to the guys at Beverly Hills Lambo for the opportunity.

    For me, the Bugatti is the DEFINITIVE Supercar, capable of making cars like the Enzo, look silly.

    So let me get this straight.

    You post a pic of Allan in the veryon. So Allan is you, or you are claiming to be Allan. Which is it?
