God, it's like an obsession... There's more interesting cars out there..
You're saying it like they see them all the time.

Because they're £1million cars? Not many of them about! Plus I think they're stunning, both visually and from a technical viewpoint

Is it just me or are the majority of veyrons owned by people with bad taste who ultimately end up making them look tacky? No, I'm not jealous it's just that in most all the pictures I've seen they always have awful colour schemes, they sort of remind me of cheap jewellery.

For some, and not for others. I get excited when I see a Morgan, but some may not. It's called being an individual. A Bugatti is a rare car indeed... Ive never seen one in upstate NY. I get excited when I see an MGB as well.

All things are relative. This week I was very excited to be being driven through London in a rather lovely old Ferrari (as in £2m-quidsworth of rather lovely), but became further excited by the Maserati Quattroporte III going the other way. Maybe I'm weird...

I'm with you mate, this obsession with spotting and then photographing Veyrons is just boring now, are people lives really this empty.

Oh and to the OP, Hi, it's nothing personal, I'm just fed up with peoples obsession with Veyrons.

I've gotta say that if you're both so fed up of people posting photo's of supercars especially Veyrons on a motoring forum then don't bother reading the thread said pics are posted on and then post negative comments.

There's enough crap and vitriol on many other threads you can contribute too.

BTW some great pics, cheers OP and everyone else

No, what pisses me off is the way that people post on here like over excited schoolboys because they saw a fast car, mistakenly I thought this was a forum for adults interested in all cars, not somewhere for 14 year old boys to wk over expensive cars.

This site is getting like Top Gear, where unless it is flashy and expensive it is to be derided.

Dick. It's a car forum, for a lot of people seeing a Veyron is pretty special if they've never seen one before, especially 'out' on the road. If people get pissed off with seeing pics of Veyrons then why do they click on the thread, read it and then post negative comments?. I've seen a fair few Veyrons, i'd still, if i saw one out on the road take a pic on my phone or camera. Thanks OP and welcome smile

I agree. Technically brilliant but as much soul and character as a discarded fridge (especially in chrome)

Nice to see, but certainly not that exciting to me....each to their own though, dull world if we all liked the same thing.

Hello OP, i have only seen one Veyron in the flesh and that was on a stand at a car show, i don't live in a metropolis and see them every day on the road so pics of them being used are always good to see. They will all be in museums or storage in a few years so make the most of seeing them out and about.

'kin hell great advert for the forum guys rolleyes

Nice pics OP, I've never seen a Veyron in the flesh and would enjoy doing so, it's just another tick on the list

Don't let the haters put you off it's not always like this...a lot of the time but not all the time

To whoever said it's getting like TG and if it's not flashy it doesn't get mentioned, are you reading the forum? I see as many bangernomics/mx5 etc threads as I do exotics

Good to see the same posters resorting to name calling.

The interesting thing (to me anyway) is that there are actually a fair few of these threads and a lot of people, myself included, have seen Veyrons "in the wild"

I don't ever remember seeing am F40,F50 or an Enzo, or a McLaren F1 anywhere, despite them all being much older and more having been built (I believe, so far at least) while I've seen the big VW 3 times.

Is it just that owner are using them a lot more, more have been sold here/western Europe or am I just forever falling over them?

So if you were offered a drive in one you'd say no?
While I agree that ( for me they lack soul) I'd love to have a play in one.
OP thanks for they pics, don't be put off PH by negative comments.

I think part of the appeal of this particular sighting was the fact that a Bug was spotted in the car park of East Midlands Airport - incongruous to say the least. This would be part of the reason for posting - a car that seems out of place in it's surroundings becomes a little more interesting for some.

I saw a Revere Range Rover Sport today - not that unusual for many, but certainly a rarity in Torquay, which is not renowned as being home to too many footballers! So, a fairly rare car in an unusual setting - it stood out to me, as did the Bug for the OP.

I wouldnt have started a thread about the RRS, but I would have done if I had seen a Bug in Torquay for sure - though I did see an R8 Spider the other day, which is almost the equivalent down here!
