Brave Owner Parks His Unique £1.6m Bugatti Veyron Supercar Made of PORCELAIN in Paris Street
It must require nerves of steel to drive a £1.6million one-off porcelain supercar through Paris’ notoriously congested streets, let alone parallel park it.
The super-wealthy owner of this astonishing Veyron L’Or Blanc - or White Gold - must have breathed a sigh of relief when it arrived at the hotel unscathed.
This unique edition of the 253mph, 1,000bhp car - created in conjunction with a firm that usually makes tea pots - had never been seen on the road in Europe.
And when rumours started circling it had popped up in Paris, the ‘car-parazzi’ packed their tripods before heading for France.
Fans from England, France, Holland and Germany quickly arrived at the Plaza Athenee Hotel where they found the world’s first car to ‘wear the finest porcelain on its body’.
