Ok, I spent a total of one and a half minutes inside the car, in the driver's seat. The tension was at first a LOT to deal with, but then I was quite relaxed. It cocoons you VERY well, and you feel incredibly snug inside it. Sadly as a 6' individual, I do have to say it wasn't as "spacious" as a Murcielago which I sat in a few months back, but it didn't quite matter. I guess I like being hugged by the seats and the whole wrap-around atmosphere.
Holding the steering wheel just engulfs within you a self of power. It brought back an instant nostalgic feeling of when in 2001, as a thirteen year old, I used to stare at a poster of the Veyron in it's more or less finished concept format, in my bedroom for long moments and day-dreaming like an young lad would . Owning one of these must be heavenly...can't describe that feeling (yet). All you see is this huge tachometer, the massive EB Bugatti emblem on the steering wheel and the adjoining speedometer (till 420 kmph!) and the bhp-o-meter of course. The dashboard was a dark ash colour, so the chrome instrument cluster does certainly stand out, along with the centre console dials and controls. The materials are top-notch, absolutely no two ways about that. Ideally, I would've preferred a very exotic interior colour, such as rouge or tan or perhaps all black, though this colour certainly wasn't a turn off.
Being inside it is something that cannot be described appropriately in words by a true car fanatic, and as like-minded enthusiasts, I'm sure you can understand what I mean when I say that!
