While out in California this summer, I had some wonderful quality time with this stunning black Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. It was parked all by it’s lonesome self, yes in a handicap spot, at the Pebble Beach Lodge. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When you find one of the fastest cars on Earth all alone with your camera, set up some nice photos.
For those with fuzzy memories, this German-engineered beast boasts 1200hp from an 8.0L W16 with four turbos. Bugatti set the production car speed record in it at 268mph, but all customer cars are limited to the snails pace of 258mph so the tires don’t disintegrate. Even though the Veyron Super Sport weighs over 4,500lbs, it can still sprint 0-60 in 2.5 sec, 0-100 in 4.9 sec, and the 1/4 Mile in 9.9 sec @ 146mph. It is a marvel of engineering to be sure, and seems to be an exception to the laws of Newtonian Physics.
While flash colors do look great on the Bugatti Veyron, the black on this one gave it a nice sense of class. I also really loved the chrome wheels and trim because it really made the details “pop.” All in all, this Bugatti was a stunning car, and I’m glad I got a nice chance to shoot it. Enjoy!
