Default U are damn lucky

Frankmehta sir You are 1 of the luckiest souls on earth.....A rendezvous with a Bugatti and that too a Veryon.. All I can remember at this point is the Top Gear review of veryon by James May touching the 407kmph. Astonishing.Simply superb.

oh yeah... Talking about Top Gear! They have a channel there that shows only reruns of Top Gear all the time! i think its called bbc g2. Thats the ultimate thing.. on top of that there's something called g2+ which is a seperate channel that runs exactly one hour behind the schedule of the g2 channel, which allows you to watch a rerun of a rerun if you have missed it. Not to forget the nifty feature that allows you to pause rewind and RECORD live tv! thus if u are a die hard top gear fan like me, then you'd not even venture out of the house to go sightseeing!!!! (well for me sightseeing was just counting the no. of ferraris and lambos i saw AND heard in the day!)

frank I must say you are a very lucky person. I think you are the first bhpian to get this up close and personal with the mighty Veyron. Everyone just stops in their steps when they see this exotic. I remember the pictures put up by Mugen Power in the Dubai sighting thread.

Congratulations on your trip to heaven. And yes I loved the F430 too

Forgive me but I beg to differ here, sir.

For the past 9 to 10 years, I've been in love with the McLaren F1. Nothing, not one car, in the history of time, came close to it.
But that was before I read up on the Veyron. For the longest time I thought the Veyron to be a point-and-shoot with sub-standard handling. I was wrong. The handling is just as good if not better than the McLaren's, not to mention the engineering that went into the car. Simply stunning!
It outshines the McLaren everytime (initially to my disliking because of my love for the F1, but now I've accepted it).

Veyron lovers, something that may be of interest to you:

I shudder to think how much that regn number would cost him. It was probably first issued pre 1904!
