Have you always wanted a Bugatti Veyron but were worried that it was a bit too common?Well, with the new super Veyron, you shouldn't have that problem, says Nick Hall in The Sunday Times. The Mansory Bugatti Veyron Vincero will "sort the oil barons from the hedge-fund managers".
Each one will set you back €1.7m, and for that you get a W16 engine tuned to deliver 1,109bhp as opposed to the standard Veyron's "mere" 987. You also get a dark chrome paint job, mild changes to the bodywork and contours and a vivid white-leather interior. But "the truth is that the Veyron is already so overwhelming that the Vincero's differences are hard to recognise on the public road". (See www.mansory.com.)
Another option would be to go for one of Bugatti's own new limited run of special editions built to celebrate the firm's centenary, says Ben Oliver in The Mail on Sunday. However, despite costing €1.35m, all four will probably be sold by the time you read this. (See www.bugatti.com.)

Don't despair, though. The standard model still has another 50 models to go on its production run and there will be 150 examples of the new Veyron Grand Sport (pictured). For €1.4m, you get power and speed beyond F1 levels in "a car that's as sybaritic as a Bentley and as reliable as a Volkswagen".
