A Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport packing 1000 PS and an empty race track. What ensues is predictable. The man of the hour is Seiji Ara- winner of the 2004 Le Mans 24 Hours and the venue is Fuji Speedway under the shadows of Mount Fuji in Japan. Incidentally, the Fuji circuit also has the longest straight of any Formula 1 GP track, which should come handy for the Veyron to stretch its legs.
While, there’s nothing too dramatic in the video, just the sight of a Bugatti Veyron going past at full chat is mesmerizing. The 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged W12 brute of an engine can be clearly heard and with all electronics switched off, controlling 1000 rampaging horses must’ve been quite an experience for Ara who confesses to not have driven a car with 1000 PS before.
PS: Do not miss the Maserati MC12 flyby at the end of the video.
