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.

Super boys from India help design 900 HP supercar

Super boys from India help design 900 HP supercar

Four students from India have acquired overnight fame after a futuristic car they designed as part of a team project earned rave reviews at an international motor expo in Switzerland.

The master’s students, three of whom are from Mumbai and one is from Pune, study at an Italian design school and collaborated with a magazine from the country on the project.

The sleek-looking car was designed by a group of 11 post-graduate students of Istituto Europeo di Design (IED), a design institute in Italy. Amongst the eleven team members are Marshin Bhatt (25), Rahul Sadwelkar (23), and Sunny Ramrakhiani (31) – all from Mumbai, and Gaurav Jagtap (26), from Pune.

Other designers hail from Poland, China, Israel, Taiwan, Iran and Mexico. The project was the final thesis project for the masters course in transportation design, in collaboration with Italian car magazine, Quattroruote, and garnered rave reviews at the Geneva Motor Show 2015.

“The theme given to us was to design a modern and futuristic car which uses techniques that could make sense in the future. We chose to design a car giving extra attention to safety features not only for the driver, but also pedestrians,” said Sadwelkar, who spoke to mid-day from Italy.

The 23-year-old moved to IED in 2010 and, after completing his bachelors in car design in 2013, joined the same institute for a master’s course on scholarship basis.

Bhatt, a student of Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology in Andheri, joined IED in 2013. “I used to sketch cars since I was in school and had my own collection of posters and magazines. Work is fun when you do what you always wanted to do,” he said, adding that his family is proud to see his dreams turn into reality. Bhatt hopes to move on to bigger challenges. “Who knows, I may open a design consultancy firm one day.”

Carpenter makes Lamborghini style super car entirely out of Wood

Carpenter makes Lamborghini style super car entirely out of Wood

A Lamborghini-loving carpenter realised he was never going to have the cash to buy a £260,000 supercar – so he made one out of WOOD.

Super car fan Yu Jietao stripped the body off an electric car then redesigned it using hand-carved rosewood.

And after he hit the road in China’s Jiangxi province, he quickly attracted media attention – and numerous offers to buy the car.

He said: “One person offered me what I would consider to be a small fortune, and more than enough to buy a real hot rod but I decided I don’t want to sell it.

“My wife really loves it as well and so we decided to keep it.”

Police have warned that technically it isn’t licensed because it was not made by an approved car manufacturer.

But that has not deterred Yu, 26, who is planning to challenge the wooden supercardecision.

He said: “I didn’t really copy any car when I made it but I guess I wanted a sort of Lamborghini feel about it.

“It is a topless roadster so isn’t suitable for all weathers, and has beetle-wing doors. It measures about four-metres-long, 1.5 metres wide and is just 1.5 metres tall.”

The World’s Best Police Cars

The World's Best Police Cars

This is the new 2015 Dodge Charger police car. Not only does it look properly terrifying – monster front bull-bars, sinister projector-beam headlights and a streamlined silhouette – but, as a true American cop car should, it comes with a socking great V8.

You can, of course, get the Charger police car with the ‘Pentastar’ V6 (292bhp, 260lb ft torque), but any self-respecting US police force will want the V8 version. Specifically the 5.7-litre, HEMI-engined V8 with 370bhp, 390lb ft of torque and a 0-60mph time of less than six seconds.

Fast enough to give the majority of road-bound crims food for thought.Then there’s the reinforced RWD chassis, featuring performance suspension, load-levelling shocks, heavy duty brakes, stabiliser bars all round, 18-inch performance tyres, and – officially the Best Thing Ever – steel wheels.

Inside you get, officer, a new seven-inch full-colour instrument cluster, police-spec front seats (to better hold officers’ belt-mounted gear and felon-absorbing waistlines) and the ability to customise your ride with the help of Mopar.

Sadly customisations don’t include multi-coloured grenade racks or machine guns in the headlights or oil slicks on the rear or revolving numberplates. Partly because it’s not 1964, and partly because Mopar isn’t run by five-year olds or Top Gear.

Rather, you get the option of bolstering the electrical performance of the car, add new graphics, ballistic door panels for the driver and passenger, and steel seat back inserts for the driver in case perps in the back become… agitated.

Renowned luxury car manufacturer Lamborghini have launched their very first fragrance.

Called simply ‘L1’ the scent, which is revealed as the first in a collection of four, will set you back almost £300 a bottle.

And while its £290 price tag may be a fraction of the cost of the new Lamborghini Huracan at around £188,000, it’s sure to make the average perfume shopper a bit sniffy.

L1, created by a team of master perfumers from Intertrade Group, is said to contain ‘rare ingredients’ to create ‘lasting deep notes: and a complex, unique and highly intriguing mix’.

The scent has top notes of lime, ginger, cardamom and pink pepper and a base including incense, styrax, white musk accord, and tobacco.

Only 999 bottles of the limited edition scent have been made to launch the Huracan LP 610-4 at Geneva.

For those willing to splash out on the smell of a supercar the perfume comes in an aluminium tube, brushed by hand and covered in black leather.

Its Alcantara carrying case, created in Italy, is inspired by a car tool pouch so you can pretend that you have the wheels to go with it and the set also contains two glass 25 ml refills of the extrait de parfum.

L1 will be sold at high-end department store Fortnum and Mason, where three more Lamborghini fragrances will be launched in October this year.

World's Most Expensive Car

This 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO, pictured here at Mount Ventoux in France, is reported to have been sold for $52 million, making it the world’s most expensive car!

It is not known who bought the 1963 250 GTO race car as it was a private transaction, but it was purchased last month from its previous owner, Paul Pappalardo.

Pappalardo bought the car, chassis number 51111, in 1974. The sale price of $52 million is a 49% increase on the previous record holder, another 250 GTO which was sold last year for $35 million. That’s pretty good when you consider that when new in 1962, a Ferrari 250 GTO only cost about £6,000!
