Recession? What Recession?

This gold plated Bugatti Veyron was spotted outside the Dorchester last week.

The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 is a mid-engine grand touring car named after French racing driver Pierre Veyron, who won the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1939 while racing for the original Bugatti company. 200 examples of the Veyron are known to have been built and delivered since production began. There will be a total of 300 built.

The Veyron has many times been proclaimed the greatest car of all time. If you have to ask how much they cost, you clearly cannot afford one, but for the particularly poor among us, they cost €1,100,000 before any taxes. They consume more fuel than any other production car, doing less than 7 mpg in town driving. At full throttle, they do less than 2½ mpg - which would empty its 22 gallon fuel tank in just 12 minutes.
