The fastest street legal car in the world. Sweet.
Impossibly rich? Mad about cars? Or just mad in a medical sense? Then step this way Sir. Yours for a snip at £16,000 a day, the ultimate holiday rental: a Bugatti Veyron. This is real. Quite honestly. A Berkshire-based leasing company called Holders Vehicle Contracts has at its disposal the world’s fastest, priciest production car. The car that demanded months of negotiation before even the Stig was allowed to drive it. The car that needs a special set of tyres to cope with its maximum speed. The car that Jenson Button himself is tooling around in when he’s not winning back-to-back Grand Prix. But now we can all have a go. Well some of us at any rate. That £16,000 daily outlay notwithstanding, you also need to be able to put down £100,000 as a deposit. – From TopGear
