Default Bugatti : Vive La Marque ! (My visit to the headquarters - where veyrons are made!)

The Château Saint Jean located in Molsheim France is the headquarter of Bugatti Automobiles and the place where each Veyron are handmade in a high-tech factory.
I had the privilege of visiting this beautiful place last year.
I hope you'll enjoy my pics.

I am speechless. You are one lucky guy. Just love that picture of the Veyron with the scenic background. An oppurtunity of a lifetime. This is nothing short of automotive orgasm. Thanks for sharing the pictures Spyderman. You just made my Sunday morning.

That must have been an amazing experience. Its really fascinating to see how well they have blend the classic with the modern design . The way those little Veyrons are kept everywhere looks neat so are the chairs in the shape the of front seats. Guess for them attention to detail doesn't stop with the car, its carried over across anything related to manufacturing of the car.
Thanks for sharing spyderman(feels funny calling you that way )

Wow. Nice pics.

What a great setting - the veyrons look so much more at home here than in any other veyron picture i have ever seen, be it the n`ring or a dubai mall parking lot!

I like the seats - ranging from skinny to fatty!

Can we expect some more pictures? (I have changed the thread title to be a little more descriptive so more people can enjoy these pics)

Wow.
Everything looks so perfect. Lovely pics. Thanks for sharing.

Is it easy to get access to the factory or is there a special invite?

Beautiful setting. First the Phaeton and now the Bugatti, VW has given a new meaning to the car buying experience and the way plant tours are done.

My understanding is that all customers are welcome for a tour as a part of the buying experience.
