  • Why yes Mr. Veyron, I will take a spin.

    So a while back my uncle's developer showed up to his new project in Hollywood and low and behold, he had just bought this little gem at Symbolic Motor Sports in San Diego for a cool $1,600,000.00.

    Since my uncle and him have such a close working relationship he offered me a ride in it which of course, was just epic.... so I thought I'd share.

    We weren't able to "tear" it up seeing as how sunset in Hollywood is quite busy, but we did get quite a few looks from the local coffee bean.

          OMG! You're so lucky. What a waste for that car to be subjected to a life of stop and go traffic in Hollywood. I've heard those cars engines get extremely hot at low speeds, which is why it has like 4 radiators. They're designed to be driven fast. Isn't the Veyron the fastest production car in the world? You are one of only a tiny handful of people who's been in one, let alone seen one, so consider yourself truly fortunate. Thanks for sharing the picture and the story! :)

            I loved it when the guys at Top Gear took the car to its max speed. What a wild ride that would be.

                Aww, crap... and here I was about to brag that I got to drive around in my friends new Red Nissan GTR.

                Totally sweet, though :D

                      Not quite, 255mph top speed, 1001 horse power W-16 engine, quad turbo chargers.

                      I didn't snip any interior shots just do the fact of my own shear excitement of being in one.. but I'll get to go for a ride again next I'm up there.

                      Typically I get to drive this bad boy when ever my step father's out of town (yes of course with his permission when I check in on his house).

                          What's the cylinder by the passenger door? A way to drive longer without restroom stops, or a nitrous cylinder? :p

                            Fire extinguisher, most likely.

                            I don't have pics of the exact car, it looks more of a beater because he hasn't reconditioned anything but the engine yet, but my uncle has let me use his '77 Ford Maverick Stallion while my car is getting looked at by the insurance adjusters (most likely totalled.. they told me to remove the plates..) and get a new car. Thing is a beast of a car, with it's 250ci Thriftpower Six (same engine as the 70s mustangs).


                            Same color, too! only his has a white vinyl top.
                            recorded what it sounds like last night.
