When it happens on a race track it sounds casual, but when something like this happens on a motorway (a 50mph zone), someone might have something to say about it, at least the police, that’s for sure!

Veyron pulled over after 130 mph race!
- image 249696

ABugatti Veyron and a Ferrari 599 GTB decided to see who’s the best, and they ended up in a 130 mph race. Problem is that the police was watching and managed to caught one of them: the Veyron! The 599 GTB, even if it’s slower than the Bugatti managed to zoom off into the distance. We presume it had a better driver!

The driver of the Bugatti – a left-hand drive model with French number plates – was given three penalty points and a fixed fine of £60.

The Veyron had plates. The 599 didn’t. If they driver of the Veyron took off, he’d have been written up later, for more than just speeding.

I do agree that the above is rather ironic but a driver behind the wheel of a Veyron will have more reason to be nervous than the driver behind the wheel of an underpowered Ferrari. You can’t exactly weave in and out of traffic in a 1001hp car.

How on earth did the Bugatti get pulled over, rather then the Ferrari?? ? ? ?? ? ?

it’s very possible to be someone from the factory trying a new marketing strategy: break the speed limit, let yourself caught by the police and photographed by the mediasmiley

Look at the Veyron tag on the pictures, it is ending by 67, which correspond to the French Region where the Bugatti is manufactured. This is most likely someone from the factory or a journalist.

This time it seems it was not Jeremy Clarkson smiley
