I was of the impression that both the SLR and the Veyron are built only in LHD. So even if there were a couple of them in India, they would be illegal. Highly unlikely that anyone would spend that much money on an illegal car....

not really f450 they can have conversion to RHD, but that will come at a big price.

You mean Bugatti or Mercedes will make a RHD for an extra price? Or do you have to get it converted by an outsider mechanic?

I dont think bugatti or mercedes will do it, until unelse you are special customers ie. Rainbow Sheikh. For his wedding gift Mercedes stop their S Class production line to customise his cars.
All the H2 are LHD but they converted to RHD by private companies.

Dude, thats a crazy pic of the X5. More than the car, the situation seems to be chaotic! There is a BMW thundering down the road, and suddenly, there is a bike in front of it, trying to turn !

Isn't that a bit risky though? If I'm going to spend 12 crores on a Bugatti, I don't think I would want to risk mechanical problems by messing about under the bonnet...

Precisely the reason no 'known' case of a conversion of the SLR or the Veyron have been uncovered.

The GTR looks menacing, btw the guy on the R15 ought to be taught a lesson on helmet strap and usage.
