Filming with 3 Bugatti Veyrons

Top Gear Filming with 3 Bugatti Veyrons in the UAE!

Photoshoot goes into Top Gear

ABU DHABI - Psst, buddy, can you spare me a sports car? Yes, evidently, three of them. This weekend Top Gear, the UK-based car magazine, which is in the country for a photo shoot, sent out an urgent request for an unusual car, the million-dollar Bugatti Veyron.
It was hoping for one. Instead, it was offered three of the vehicles, which cost more than Dhs 4.4 million (USD $1.2m) each. "No other place in the world could we have found three Bugattis in a span of 48 hours," said a relieved Charlie Turner, the creative director for the magazine.




The cars were tracked down by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority and belong to local owners who wish to remain anonymous. Built by Volkswagen, the 1,000-horsepower vehicle can reach 255 MPH (407 KPH). One car in the shoot, a gleaming aluminium-bodied model, is one of only five in the world.



The Corniche area and Jabel Hafeet were briefly closed off for the shoot, which featured the Stig, Top Gear's mysterious, overall-clad driver. Top Gear, paired with a BBC television show of the same name, sells more than a million copies a month.



A part of the shoot was on top of the Jabel Hafeet mountains, and the amazing roads leading up to and through it.



There is also a rumour going around that there was a Koenigsegg CCX spotted during the photoshoot...

I could live with that   ;D ;D ;D

I imagine there isn't much call for replacement Veyron alloys at Halfrauds   ;)
