Dutch kid gets ticket for speeding on father’s Bugatti Veyron

One thing every father should know when their son borrows their Bugatti Veyron: he’s not going to the grocery store with it.

That’s what Michel Perridon found out, the hard way, when his 20-year-old son was flagged for speeding at 100 mph in a 50 mph zone in Rotterdam while onboard his Veyron. As a result, the kid’s license was revoked and, worse for pops, his Veyron was likewise impounded.

As the director for Trust International BV, a former sponsor of the Spyker F1 team, Perridon can probably afford another Veyron without losing too much sleep. Then again, that’s a $2.4 million car his son just lost for him so it’s still a pretty bitter pill to swallow. Come to think of it, at $2.4 million, he would probably lose some sleep.

It’s unclear as to whether Perridon can reclaim his Veyron, but at least he knows not to trust his son when it comes to getting behind the wheel of a supercar.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Ouch, that Veyron was impounded by the son’s thirst for speed. His son couldn’t be trusted at all. I feel sad about the father. At least, the lesson was learned.

They’re like actresses and super-models. Nice to look at, maybe get a poster of one or something.

no one’s blaming no one...but i certainly want to blame someone when there’s too much lead or arsenic in my water or when I can’t regularly eat fish because of possible mercury poisoning!

They have already rated this monster as the fastest car in the world but don’t jet y yet SSC Aero is also making a leap to have that record.

Instead of allowing them to drive your car, why don’t they just buy one for them too... smiley

Every parents should monitor their children. Specially when they didn’t own the cars.

He should be careful the next time. It’s anyone’s fault. Accidents do happens.

Too Bad, that the Bugatti get impounded. This is a good lesson to slow down in driving to stop any fatal incident.

hehehe he’s really in need of speed, but good thing he never tried over 100mph.

Stubborn kid! But imagining those things, I think he is like James Bond driving an expensive car of his father.
