Default Pics: *Two* Veyrons In Riyadh, KSA

So far i've been able to see and take a picture of 2 Veyrons. One is violet/white and the other is black/blue. No matter the color though these car are BEAUTIFUL. Just by looking at the car you realize how HUGE of an achievement it is. I feel honored to have stood next to it and indeed to just "touch" it hahaha. Im sure there are more in the city as a Prince is said to have bought 3 for some strange reason two other Princes own one each. That brings the grand total of Veyrons to 7 in just one city. Anyones opinion changed about Saudi Arabia yet?

Here are the pics.

White/Violet






Black/Blue


Have a good day!

No, my opinion that these buggers are worthless if not for people like me paying 3 bucks a gallon has only been reaffirmed.

Nice pics though and indeed it is a marvelous car.

tjallu, its nice to know that there are 7 veyrons in riyadh. as you pointed out most or all of them belong to the royal family and with the fuel prices almost at nothing and with tons of money and not knowing where to spend it i too would have had a couple of these and others in my stable.
my opinion of saudi is still the same, common man has constraints while the super rich sheikhs splurge on expensive cars and other things. i would love to this car with someone other than the sheikhs, that day my opinion of saudi will change.
thanks for the pictures.

Wow you guys and girls (i was wondering how many female members there are) are alot better than most other people i meet who dont know much about Saudi Arabia. Believe it or not i get asked atleast three times a year if i live in a tent and go around on a camel.

As far as Speedy's comment, in my opinion what you said is not just the problem in saudi arabia. It's more of a global theory of some sorts. Kind of links to the statement that the rich grow richer and the poor grow poorer. It even exists in India for that case, with all the business tycoons driving around in their machines looking down at us normal people with a big grin on their faces. But heh thats life!
And in my opinion the Veyron is just another tool to make this more evident. From the start of its birth it has been evident that it was not intended for the common man.
This is not a personal attack on Speedy or anything just my opinion. Anyone agree with me?
