@bivin

The prices of used Veyrons will not appreciate till the car is in production. It is only after the fresh supplies have stopped, people will pay more to buy few cars which will be on sale at that time.

It is all about demand and supply and that too of an exotic machine.

If I had the money, I would have bought it definitely.

Found these on CanonBall page, The Bug with a very familiar LP640. Tried posting the links but something is going wrong when I preview it and is only showing some characters. Please remove if irrelevant. Not covering the plates since the pics with the regn. have been already posted by ecks.

Since its had its time in Delhi, I hope it they bring it down to Mumbai for a while. The upcoming ACI Performance Show in November would the perfect place to put the Bugatti on display. If done, it would be the best display put up in any ACI Show so far.

Its more like the engine sound of the car following the Veyron (from which the video is being shot)

Well that's a Ritz that is following the Veyron and it will never sound like the Veyron even with 10 turbochargers!

Very nice video , especially trying to cut in front of the BMW 650i. The part where the Veyron sprints towards the end was also nice.

BTW Why is the BMW 650i following the Veyron ?

The video is amusing, people with FFE's can totally relate to the response you get even when you are just admiring rather than racing! On the plus side though, apparently, its great to get bursts of acceleration from supercars wherein they think you are trying to mess about
the best part is when the veyron accelerates & you here the guy taking the video laughing!

Here it another longer video posted by the same guy who took the original video:


While we all are fascinated with the Veyron & its pricetag, here is something to either get you smiling or into the "Ouch! Thats gotta hurt!" reaction

Guys, hate to be a pooper but 16cr is obscenely expensive even by supercar standards. its almost a million bucks more expensive in india than any other place in the world. I think its time our babus sitting at the customs realise how we are emerging and make exceptions in terms of duty to be paid because im sure you all agree that these cars pose no threat to any manufacturers at home in india. The only good outcome would be if our guys at home clinch this opportunity and make indigenous supercars and sportscars of our own.....but with the main focus of the automobile sector in india being small cars and also with our own people having such an unfair and overcritical attitude towards indian manufacturers.... it would take ages for this to happen.

i guess the bill for this car should also have a small charge for building world class roads in the outskirts of whichever city it is sold.

jokes apart, would the gigantic duty paid on this car actually get converted into fantastic roads or would you see all that money strung into a garland and worn by a beaming politician on tv???.......something to think about eh.
