The Bugatti Veyron has already featured on our VCARS blog on a few occasions, and it’s proved to be quite an attraction to our readers. It’s undoubtedly a great piece of machinery, and with it currently ranking number 1 as the Fastest Production Car On the Planet, there’s a lot to natter about.
But what do all great Supercars desire, besides from a owner with a wealth of fortune? Is it a disciplined driver? Nah. The perfect track? Nah. A fountain of fuel. Precisely.
The fuel economy – if that’s what you can call it – is 9 miles per gallon in the city and 18 on the motorway, according to our sources. I can only assume it’s 0.5 miles per gallon on a bumpy road (a few scattered pebbles).
While it is proudly the fastest production car on the planet, it’s also the reigning champion for being the most “impractical thing ever”. Yes, “thing”- that includes anything currently hosted on our planet. Probably the Universe, too.
So, it’s to no surprise that this was caught on camera- a Bugatti Veyron falling short on fuel on a public road, consequently needing a push…
I don’t blame the cameramen for finding it hysterically haaaaalrious. The jealous devil on my shoulder is also finding the joy in this spectacle.
