Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Performs Some Mean Donuts: Video
Watching this video really hurt our walletsby Kirby, on
Ever wonder what it must feel like doing donuts in the fastest production car in the world? To my knowledge, I think I can count in one hand the number of times I’ve seen an actual Bugatti Veyron performing serious burnouts. There’s a reason for that. See, a set of Bugatti Veyron tires cost a little under $20,000. Since the Veyron uses special Michelin PAX tires, they can only be removed from the wheels in France in a process that reportedly costs around $70,000 to $80,000. That’s roughly $90,000 to $100,000 worth of replacement parts.
So yeah, people who own Veyrons don’t generally use them for burnouts because replacing those cars could put a serious dent in their wallets. But what happens when the tires themselves are so worn out that they have to replaced?
Well, magic happens. The folks over at DutchBugs happened to have with them a Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car Edition. With those tires reportedly due for a change, they did what anybody would’ve done under the same situation. They took the special edition Veyron to an open area and proceeded to do some crazy burnouts that we’ll probably never get to see in our lifetimes again.
As for the young buck riding shotgun and bearing witness to arguably the most expensive donuts in history, that’s YouTube personality Gonth. For somebody who staked his claim to fame on YouTube, this is one heck of a video to have in his collection.
