Bugattin Veyron spotted about 2 weeks ago on Belgrave Sq. in London being unloaded from a transporter in front of the German Embassy! The two tone paint on this one was blue/silver.
Looked mightily impressive, although smaller than I had imagined.

I didn't think it had been released yet...

Did it have UK, German plates or any at all?

It could also have been there for a publicity shoot.

I saw the title of this thread and thought I was gonna cry. I think the Veyron might be the most beautiful auto ever made. I can't imagine how gorgeous it must be in the flesh.

I'll probably never know.

Sorry I can't exactly remember what plates it had, but I have a feeling they were british. I pulled over in one of the OH-MY-GOD states that nearly had me crash, and then cursed my lack of camera, would have been a good "spotted" for Evo etc!

They did put a cover on it pretty sharpish when I started going over for a closer look. I imagined that it was some VW group bigwig having a bit of fun over here, because I saw it 2-3 days before it was officially unveiled in Monaco!!!

Now that was a good spot.

I cant wait to read the tests on it to see if their figures were bull5hit or it really will accelarate like they claim.

Might upset Gordon 'The Mullett' Murray though!
