a bugatti may get stuck like a pivot on our local speedbreakers even with the damper setings made extremely hard. the cars so low. also due to the horrible mileage on that car im sure one wouldnt be able to complete even a one way trip from colaba to thane on a single full tank of fuel.one may get stranded in the midst of traffic with and empty tank.there was news somewhile bak in the times of india that bugatti is gonna be available in india officialy too but cannot figure out logically how will that be possible when i havent herd of any right hand drive veyrons made.im sure the first rhd veyron will be seen in london before anyother place. havnt seen any as yet.not even in australia.o agree with bad boy.

Default This info is false!!

Hey guys, I wrote an e-mail to Bugatti Contact about the Veyron landing here. And I received a fast reply. Ahead is my e-mail and their response... The whole thing is not true...

- Hide quoted text -
Respected Sir,
I have recieved word that a Wine red Bugatti Veyron has landed in Bombay, India on Tuesday. All I would want to know is whether this news is true or not. You may not reveal the name, thats for sure. But I would really appreciate it if you just told me whether this is true or not. The answer would even be appreciated in just a YES or NO form... Awaiting Reply.

Thanking you,

It can very well be a new car imported under change in address scheme.
The owner might have baught the car at his Non- Indian residence address and then imported it to motherland by mentioning that he is shifting his address. And in that case i don't think the company will have that info of a bugati veyron landing.

I trust Mav and his sources are also trustworthy. so before calling it a fake or wrong news we might wait for some time.

Thats possible, yes. But don't you think Bugatti will keep track of such things also? I mean its an exclusive car for the company. And not that I'm against, not at all... But this letter is from the Marketing and Sales rep of Bugatti itself... I trust Mav and his sources also... Anyways, I guess if this ain't enough, we just gonna have to wait...

Hey torque, I dont think the company is going to tell you if the car has really landed in India or no.The car is itself so exclusive that we know only the rich and the famous are gona buy it and if the owner doesnt want anybody to know about it naturally you dont expect the company to tell you the whereabouts of their exclusive cars and loose out on some real big time customers....and as far as Maverick has said he has his reputation at stake here .. do you think it can be a joke ?????

Cheers....

I sent them another e-mail. He replied saying the same thing. He even cleared out the possibilty that it can come on Transfer of Residence. And why would they want to hide about their cars. Anyways, I'm not trying to prove that Mav is wrong. I'm just trying my best to clear this out... Anyways, we'll wait then...
