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 As a result, the kid’s license was revoked and, worse for pops, his Veyron was likewise impounded.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.
