2009 Bugatti Veyron F1
A while ago Top Speed reported about what is worth to be #1 when Saeed Abdul Ghafour Khouri shelled out $14.3 Million for the right to bear the a very exclusive number plate. Now the oil rich nations of the middle east have become a mecca for over the top indulgence and excess, especially when it comes to their automobiles, so the exclusivity of being #1 is a very esteemed honor.
Now the Bugatti Veyron is by its nature a very expensive car, so you can only imagine what it is worth when wearing an equally unique F1 number plate. It turns out that the F1 tag is almost as good as being number one. So you can only imagine the crowds that the very rare and exotic F1 Veyron would attract. That is exactly what the promoters of the upcoming MPH Show at London’s Earls Court from November 5th through the 8th. The very rare Bugatti’s owner, Afzal Kahn, was kind enough to offer up one of his prized possessions for the display. So if you happen to be in the area, then you can stop by to not only see the F1 Bugatti Veyron, but a few other high speed machines like the Ferrari FXX, Lamborghini GT600, Pagani Zonda R and the ultra exotic GT by Citroen as well.
Press release after the jump.
The world’s most expensive Bugatti Veyron, complete with F1 number plate, will be a star attraction at this year’s MPH Show featuring Top Gear Live at London’s Earls Court between 5-8 November. If ever the phrase ‘if you need to ask the price, you can’t afford it’ was appropriate it’s now. But at the right price the car could be up for sale, according to owner Afzal Kahn.
He’s hoping his soft white 253mph supercar could be the perfect choice for newly crowned Formula One champion Jenson Button since it features the most expensive number plate sold in the UK.
Capable of catapulting the driver to 100mph in 5.5 seconds this particular 1,010 BHP Bugatti Veyron has no close modern rivals in terms of price tags. But show goers can be sure, if rivals exist, they’ll all be at MPH The Prestige and Performance Motor Show.
Already the ultra rare GTbyCITROËN, worth over £1 million, is scheduled to appear at the show alongside fire-breathing examples from Pagani and Koenigsegg. Rumours about the Ferrari FXX, Lamborghini GT600 and Pagani Zonda R making an appearance are also widespread.
