Shmee At Nürburgring 24 Hour With Bugatti: Video
No other race in the world can match the shear scale of the Nürburgring 24: over 150 cars, 15.5 miles of tarmac, twice around the clock and more drunk Germans than you’ll ever find at five years worth of Oktoberfests. Our pal Shmee150 got a to take it all in from a pretty nice vantage point: the passenger seat of a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
Bugatti invited Shmee to its workshop at the Nurburgring to not only ride shotgun during the race parade lap, but to also get some seat-time the day before with Bugatti test driver and Le Mans winner Andy Wallace, in both the Super Sport and a Grand Sport Vitesse — both the very same cars that set the Veyron’s closed-top and open-top speed records.
The Veyron’s run might be over, but at one point, wondering aloud how fast the Veyron’s replacement will be, Shmee asks Wallace, “Where does it go from here?” Wallace doesn’t answer, but, as a Bugatti test driver, we have a feeling he knows more than he’s letting on.
