My Audi R8 V10 Spyder was no match for the Bugatti Veyron but made for a hugely enjoyable drive!
At last week’s The Supercar Kids’ event, Jay Broom (aka JayKayBi) offered the chance to spend the day with something rather special, a Bugatti Veyron!
And not just any Veyron, the 16.4 Coupe belonging to Lord Pembroke of Wilton House, home of the annual Wilton Classic and Supercars event, one of my personal favourite events in the annual car calendar taking place each August.
Wilton is also home to the soon to commence ‘Wilton Wakeup’ events, kicking off in spring 2013 they will be Sunday morning gatherings for car nuts in the West of England, more information is to follow on that front!
The Veyron itself is wrapped in a Gulf-inspired livery, created by radio-controlled-car painter Ian Cook of PopBangColour and placed on the car to promote the Wilton Classic and Supercars event.
A Quicksilver Sports Exhaust system is also installed in the Bugatti, giving it extra noise; an area the car is often criticised. The sound it made on first start from cold certainly took me by surprise!
Thanks for watching, Tim
