blogentry-114362-0-27400600-1408510078_thumb.jpgBugatti traveled to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance to introduce a one-off model appropriately named Veyron 1 of 1.

 

The Veyron 1 of 1 was commissioned by a wealthy customer who lives in Singapore. Outside, it stands out from a stock Veyron thanks to a custom black and yellow paint job that pays homage to many vintage Bugattis including the Type 55, the Type 44 and the Type 41 Royale. Yellow accents on the rims, on the gas cap and on the radiator grille add a finishing touch to the two-tone paint job.

Interestingly, the Veyron 1 of 1 is fitted with a hand-polished radiator grille that features a mesh pattern built using the letters PL, the owner's initials. Bugatti explains the radiator grille took over 200 hours of work to finish.

The two-tone motif continues inside the Veyron with yellow stitching on the steering wheel, the shift knob, the bucket seats and the center console. A drawing of a Bugatti Type 35 in full race regalia adorns the panel between the seats.

Power comes from a stock Veyron-sourced 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine that makes 1,183 horsepower and 1500Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, allowing the car to reach 100km/h from a stop in 2.6 second and go on to a top speed of 400km/h.

Bugatti has not revealed how much the lucky owner paid for the Veyron 1 of 1. The company recently revealed the average selling price of a Veyron is €2 million (roughly S$3.3 million) including options, indicating the one-off model likely cost a whole lot more.

Not to be outdone by the owner of the Agera R or the bloke at Ridley Park that has an F40, F50 and Enzo all parked side by side.

With the money he splashed out, couldn't he have demanded a right hand drive car though?

PL... heehee, guess it is Mr Football Club?

 

Valencia, Veyron.

 

Probably favours Vertu and Vacheron Constantin just to be alliteratively perfect. :D

 

Anyway, lots of *seriously* wealthy people in the Tiny Red Dot. Rather sobering when you realise this guy with the *bespoke* Veyron is ranked "just" #8 in SG. :blink:

Is there really an F40 in Singapore? Parked in a visible spot? I know there is a house at Ridley with lots of hypercars just at the corner of the road. That one?

Dont think he was that rich, getting 1 of the most expensive car manufacturer in world to create a right hand drive just for him. Maybe Sultan Brunei also cant do dat

I think this is one of the nicer looking one off. I'm quite fond of the black/yellow contrast and the Bugatti badge under the rear wing..

An autographed sports player card is worth more if its not addressed to someone in particular. I feel its the same for this car, even if it is the only one.

 

If you stop to think about it, all that is truly special about it is the marketing blurb - everything else done to the car are merely adornments.

Valid point, but I think "PL" is rich enough not to sweat the resale value or potential, even of a Veyron.

    This might be a good way to get a new car for free

    Spotted on the facebook page "private hire sg cars/partners - grab, gojek, ryde, tada etc", someone posted a photo of a fender bender between a BMW and a Toyota and we were shocked by how much you can claim if you were involved in such a accident. This should not cost too much to repair right? Oh wait till you see the final amount submitted by the surveyor. Yup, you saw it right. The cost of repairs on the BMW E60 5 Series would amount to a staggering $88,000.  To put that into perspective, you can buy yourself a similar BMW coupled with a new 10-year COE and lots of change left for petrol and parking. Others on the post agreed too that this is one really over inflated amount. That said, there were some who thought that the is not the actual amount that was asked for...  Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on who's point of view, that is the discharge voucher which you could say is going to be the actual amount paid out. Of course quite a few felt that this is wrong... Let us know what you readers think of this in the comments below! UPDATE: There are some rumors that the discharge form was meant for a Lamborghini Gallardo and not the two cars as pictured above. ----------------------------------------------- Want to know if there are any more BMW 5 Series you could buy with $88,000, check out our used car pages! -----------------------------------------------

    VEP delayed till 2020 or maybe when your grandchildren have children

    If you've been one of the "kan cheong" people waiting to get your Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) approved before driving into Malaysia, here's some good news for you - The implementation of the VEP scheme will only commence next year. According to The Straits Times, Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke claimed that the delay is due to the system's inability to cope with the exponential number of vehicles that needed to install the RFID tag. It seems that many Singaporeans are not surprised by this delay. It’s not the first time that there has been a delay with the implementation of the VEP and you can be sure people were quick to call that out.  And some people make pretty sound arguments. Wait, does this mean that Singaporean car owners with the RFID tags did the application and probably wasted a weekend queueing up in Malaysia for nothing? Sounds about right.  Malaysia Boleh? Case closed. ----------------------------------------------- Still wondering how to get your VEP? We went through the entire process so you can have this handy guide here! -----------------------------------------------

    Yoga Teacher throws a tantrum at Grab driver when she does not "get her way."

    A recent YouTube video of a lady berating a Grab driver with verbal insults is going viral. If you haven't already watched it, here's the link to the video. You’re welcome. Do note how the person who submitted the video titled it, it's important.    In the video, the lady wants her driver to make a U-Turn and head towards her destination by her preferred route. The driver refuses and tells her that it's the Grab driver's discretion to choose to listen to the rider or follow the fastest route as indicated on the GPS.  In this case, he flat out refused because he was scared there would be a traffic jam. We went to do a little digging and ta-dah! It turns out he was right!   Image taken from Grab.com The lady should have kept her cool and Googled whether the driver's claim was true, but of course, she didn't. She starts to "play family" which was very uncalled for. Here are some of her comments: Image taken from Traffic SG Facebook page Why lah? Why? What did his family do to you? Screenshot of video from Traffic SG Facebook page Naturally, the driver gets offended by her rude comments and starts shooting his mouth off to her as well. He questions her marital status out of nowhere. I honestly thought he was going to talk about another part of the male body. The lady goes on to tell the driver that "if he represents what Singaporean men are, no one needs to get married." By now, you should be curious as to how the lady looks like. Throughout the whole video, the spotlight is on the driver and she doesn’t show her face, but we found her.   Taken from balispiritfestival.worldsecuresystems.com Wait a minute. Anybody have anything to say? Of course they do! Image taken from Traffic SG Facebook page Me and you sister!  If you want the driver to follow your preferred route in the future then here's a helpful suggestion from a member of the public.   Image taken from Traffic SG Facebook page Very wise words. The lady's Facebook page have since been deactivated. ----------------------------------------------- Worried that you too might be an obnoxious passenger? Check out the most irritating behaviors that we face as drivers! -----------------------------------------------

    MX-5 lady left note to criticise Volvo driver’s parking. Plot twist made me Google meaning of the word “Sanctimonious”.

    Imagine parking your car like you passed your driving test on the first try and then returning to your car with this note on the windscreen -     Did you really park like an idiot? Who left the note? Did they get hurt while getting out of their car from the passenger side? So many questions. To the car camera for answers.     Here’s our supposedly wronged and potentially injured party arriving in an MX-5. Very good choice of car. After 30 seconds of parking and having to exit the car from the passenger side, the lady comes out to take a photo of the “offending” Volvo S60.     She spends about 10 seconds taking photos of the car from multiple angles. We know the Volvo S60 looks good from any angle. After walking one round inspecting the car like it was at the front gate of an army camp, she leaves her note.     Did the Volvo driver park like an idiot? Well here’s the tea.     I can hear you screaming: “Lies! The driver probably took this photo at another lot! No way someone will park in that spot! Not even the nimble Miata!” Here’s the other photo.     At least the Volvo driver was nice enough to mask out the MX-5’s plate.   Here’s the full video uploaded on SG Road Vigilante:   And “Sanctimonious” means “making a show of being morally superior to other people.”   ----------------------------------------------- Impressed by how the MX-5 can fit into snug places? Here are some for sale.   Or maybe you're leaning more on the innocent Volvo S60? We've got you covered here too!   -----------------------------------------------
