Renee’s Bugatti: “11 Days Of Christmas”

December 12, 2008


$2 Million for Hermes?

Above, the Bugatti Veyron Fbg (Fbg stands for Hermes headquarters on the Faubourge Saint Honore in Paris).

The Face:  The “face” of this fabulous automobile has been revamped with a brushed–aluminium trademark horse collar grille which is now flanked with a panel that has two air inlets .

The Body:  A 1001-bhp V-16 quad-turbo charged engine (which means this car can do 0-62 mph in 2.6 seconds) plus…the piece de resistance?….Hermes loops on the wheel hubs.

The Price:  The price of this Bugatti Royale?  A cool $2 million dollars. 

(Renee’s Aside:  Anyone for a spin around Monte Carlo?   Thanks Bill Gates for my $1 million dollars a year.   My customized license plates?   They’ll  read:   HERA 1)
