Eye candy: Bugatti Veyron GS
laps the Fuji Speedway
Japanese racer Seiji Ara takes the supercar
for an adrenaline-pumping ride
There’s been plenty of video footage of the Bugatti Veyron doing what it does best – that, of course, being driving at mind-blowing speeds. But this clip has to be one of our all-time favourites.
Produced by Japan’s Motorhead magazine, the video features a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport roadster lapping the Fuji Speedway at the hands of Seiji Ara. The Japanese driver won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2004, but has never driven anything as powerful as the Veyron.
Although Ara speaks in his native Japanese, you don’t need the subtitles (which are, incidentally, included) to appreciate the beauty of this thousand-horsepower roadster racing at the foothills of Mount Fuji.
“Knowing the Veyron has so much potential brings you peace of mind,” Ara says of the supercar.
Peace of mind wouldn’t be our first reaction, but obviously Bugatti’s beauty is in the hands of the beholder.
Check out the video, below, to get a sense of what it’s like to be behind the wheel of a monster.
