Driver of £1m Bugatti Veyron supercar asks boys for a push after car breaks down in street

The driver of a plush £1m supercar was left looking red-faced when his car broke down – and he was forced to ask passing lads for a push.

His Bugatti Veyron ground to a halt as its owner drove through an exclusive area of Knightbridge.

It was snapped being pushed by eager helpers through the luxurious area – but the driver struggled to get it going again.

The cream and maroon car has been quite an attraction in London, with plenty of pictures circulating social media.

On Monday when his car was given a parking ticket from a traffic warden for resting on double yellow lines.

The Bugatti Veyron can hit top speeds of 253mph.

The Super Sport version is recognised by the Guinness World Records as the fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a top speed of 267.7 mph.

The capital has seen a massive boom in the number of Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Bugattis on its streets as rich Qataris, Saudis, Emiratis and Kuwaitis move to Britain to escape the Middle East’s baking mid-summer months.

For many, the obsession with cars started shortly after leaving the womb, which makes the owners and dealers of exotic hardware particularly suited to provide families facing bone-chilling diagnoses with some much-needed levity.

Park Place Motors in Dallas, Texas recently partnered with the Make-A-Wish foundation to host  a seven-year old car nut and leukemia patient Michael, providing him with the opportunity to get up close and personal with a McLaren 650S and Bentley Continental GT.

And while Michael—who’s familiar with all the latest supercars via video games— was obviously thrilled to sit in the driver’s seat of those exotics, the dealership went above and beyond by arranging for factory driver Butch Leitzinger to take him for a spin in his dream car—a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.

The era of the supercar is over — enter the age of the age of the ‘megacar’

Koenigsegg's "megacar"

Koenigsegg’s “megacar”

They have fighter jet-type accelerations, custom-made interiors and seven-figure price tags: “supercars” were centre stage at the Geneva Motor Show, even as one of its legendary stars bowed out.

The last Bugatti Veyron ever to be made had pride of place at the show for auto enthusiasts to bid farewell after the brand announced that it had sold the 450th and final model of the car with its 16-cylinder monster engine that produces up to 1,200 horsepower.

“With the Veyron we created a modern icon, and this show is an opportunity to put the car on a pedestal and celebrate, and say thank you to everyone involved, and close the chapter,” Stefan Brungs, Bugatti’s head of sales, told AFP.

Since the Veyron was unveiled to the world at the beginning of the 2000s, competitors have rushed to carve out a place in this exclusive world of cars that only the ultra-rich can afford.

Sweden’s Koenigsegg, for instance, boasts it makes not “supercars”, or even “hypercars”, but full-blown “megacars.”

The company presented its Regera at the Geneva show. The car comes with a hybrid powertrain that produces 1,500 horsepower, capable of accelerating from 0 to 400 kilometres (249 miles) an hour in 20 seconds.

That’s roughly twice the horsepower of a regular Formula 1 car, though the Regera is much heavier.

“Now it seems to be pretty normal to have almost  1,000 horsepower,” says Jens Sverdrup, the brand’s head of sales.

The cost?  Around $2 million, or more depending on what you want added.

Middle East buyer snaps up 450th and final Bugatti Veyron supercar

Middle East buyer snaps up 450th and final Bugatti Veyron supercar

Volkswagen has sold the 450th and final Bugatti Veyron, marking the end of one of the most exclusive supercars ever built.

The last Veyron is an open-top Grand Sport Vitesse variant, which boasts 1,200 horsepower. The car, called La Finale, will be on display next week at the Geneva Motor Show. The 450 Veyrons were sold for an average price of about €2.3 million each, Bugatti said Monday in a statement.

“An unprecedented chapter in automotive history has reached its climax,” Bugatti president Wolfgang Duerheimer said in a statement. “Even 10 years after its market launch, the Veyron remains unique in many respects.”

The final Veyron was purchased by an unidentified customer from the Middle East. About half the cars were sold in Europe, and about a quarter were delivered in the US, according to Bugatti.

VW, the world’s second-largest automaker, is working on a new Bugatti supercar and is testing at least three different concepts for a successor to the Veyron, including one with an engine as much as 25 per cent stronger than the 1,200-horsepower motor of the Grand Sport Vitesse, people familiar with the plans said in October. VW design chief Walter de Silva has said the new Bugatti could be unveiled at the end of this year or early-2016 and will be “art.”

Like the Veyron, its successor will vie for the world’s most affluent car-buyers with the likes of Italy’s Pagani Automobili, McLaren’s street cars or Koenigsegg Automotive’s Agera model. The Swedish supercar specialist will present the Agera and a new “megacar” dubbed Regera in Geneva next week.

The Veyron set industry records not just for speed, but also for losing money, according to estimates from Max Warburton, a Singapore-based analyst for Sanford Bernstein. Including development costs, VW may lose €4.6m per vehicle on the Veyron, Mr Warburton said.

“The spending they have done on every little part of the car is totally crazy, but it’s also of course setting the agenda of the supercar, the hyper-car league,” Christian Brandt, chief designer at Danish supercar maker Zenvo Automotive, said in an interview.

“You need prestige projects like this to showcase technological excellence,” said Stefan Bratzel, director of the Center of Automotive Management at the University of Applied Sciences in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. “Yes, it costs money, but it won’t cause VW any turbulence.”
